3.0 out of 5 stars So disapppointing, 5 July 2014
By 
This review is from: The Silkworm (Cormoran Strike) (Hardcover)
Such ghastly people! I very much enjoyed the first Cormoran Strike - but this is a sad disappointment. The murderee is a horrid person, his wife (Cormoran's client) is totally obnoxious. - in fact I wonder why he took on the case - seems to be some reverse snobbery.....The plot can be found in other reviews, but involves copious excerpts from a particularly dull gothic fantasy novel where everybody has strange names.... Also, this novel within a novel concerns the London publishing world - would it be guaranteed a wide readership?
The modus operandi is revolting.
All in all a big disappointment. As someone has already pointed out, the constant reference's to Cormoran's prosthesis become quite tedious - of course, being the hero, he can't actually look after himself.
One point that particularly sticks in my mind is the wrapped bunch of flowers just dumped in a sink full of dirty crockery - really conveys the feeling of this book.
However, on the plus side, the descriptions of London streets and atmosphere are fascinating.
I haven't actually finished this and doubt if I will.
