This review is from: The Farm (Hardcover)
I picked up THE FARM from my TO READ pile, but didn't think I'd get through much of it as I had a BIG day planned in London. How wrong I was. Reading the book just made by day that much better. I started it on the bus, finished it on the bus back, and during the day, every spare second I had, I was straight into the book. Nothing like Child 44, which when I worked at Waterstones, I reviewed the £2.99 version and had it published on the back (very proud), this new novel is an addictive page-turner, so that I was so excited about. Every time I had to put it down, I had to tell my boyfriend, how amazing it was, what was going on and telling him he had to read it next ... which he is going to. I thought the characters were great, especially how they developed and how your interest in them grew more and more. I loved how you couldn't trust people, I loved the pace, the twists - I loved everything about this book and thought it was the most exciting book I've ever read. I was totally gripped. Tom Rob Smith is an incredible writer and this book proves it - the fact that I read it during a meal at The Four Seasons Hotel is proof enough that this book is one to grab you with every single letter, word, paragraph, chapter .. MIND BLOWING! This is a must-read, must-buy, must-share, must-suggest-to-book-clubs triumph!
