3.0 out of 5 stars Yawn, yawn...., 13 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: White Corridor: (Bryant & May Book 5) (Paperback)
I must be really hard to please but this book left me somewhat nonplussed. I expected a cracking read and found a story that was convoluted and not at all convincing. It took me ages to finish as I mostly read two or three very short chapters before dropping the novel as my interest kept flagging.I remained totally unengaged throughout with the slight exception of Madeline and Johann's story. Needless to say how disappointed I was at the conclusion of their ill-fated affair. To spring something unexpected at the reader is one thing, to spring something totally unbelievable is quite another. If someone is going to turn out to be utterly unlike what you've been led to believe there must at least be signs along the way for the reader to pick up. In a way the strange death of the pathologist however grotesquely bizarre is easier to swallow than the Madeline/Johann angle unless there should be a clue in one of their names. Anyway, among the quirky characters and the more boring ones I must say I failed to register who was who (apart from Bryant and May themselves obviously) which shows how little I felt concerned by what I was reading.
