Stays with you for days,
This review is from: Blackbox (Paperback)
Gripping and intriguing, I couldn't get this novel out of my head while I was reading it, or for days afterwards. The plot and the format are so original and clever, my brain was engaged until the end, and longer while I pieced it all together. The reader is kept on their toes by seemingly throw-away sentences which turn out to be highly significant to the story, so you have to concentrate. But Walker credits his audience with the intelligence to cope with this.
The story involves a fascinating collection of dysfunctional characters, who, through various twists of fate and many of life's little ironies, find that a healthy conscience can catch up with you in a big way, whether over 24 years or 24 hours.
I recommend this as a great read, unless you're in the film industry, then don't even bother, just buy the rights!
