Brilliant for Brookmyre Babies,
This review is from: Boiling A Frog (Paperback)
This was my first Brookmyre read, and I was astounded by the hours of enjoyment that I received from this novel; alas, they were simply over far too quickly.
Although, as I believe has been noted by others, a quite unbelievable plot, Brookmyre offers an original and witty take on the perilous nature of politics, religion, New Scotland and the nature of society in this dark and brooding tale.
A story that will keep you on the edge of your seat, and at times feeling rather queasy, (hacking people's heads off with saws, sharpened steel rulers through parts of the body, that sort of thing) I raced through the pages to find out how the truly addictive plot and characters could possibly sort out the mess they had got themselves into.
With a quite obviously marvellous talent for encompassing the reader into the deceitful world of the plot, I will certainly be looking to submerge myself into Brookmyre's world again sometime soon.
