5.0 out of 5 stars A first class stylistic and narrative achievement., 9 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Praesagium (Kindle Edition)
I love stories that don't patronise the reader. Some of my favourite works of fiction have been where my presence of mind is called for throughout. Praesagium is one such novel achieving sophistication in story telling generally seen in more experienced writers not in first works of fiction. The cleverness of its plot, style and even cover design all display an astute sense of craftsmanship.
The thrilling plot and narrative style pushed the right buttons with the thrill seeking reader in me. The sharp, short and edgy chapters drive the story precisely and expertly to its final striking conclusion. A few red herrings, a burgeoning love story and complex fleshy characters all add to the book's page turning and gripping qualities, not to mention it even makes you stop and think about some fundamental questions and the fragility of what we call life.
If you are a fan of movies such as "Seven" and authors like Allan Folsom, Le Carre, Ludlum and the gang then you will certainly experience that familiar edge-of-the-seat thrill from this new kid on the thriller block.
