Just Okay...At Best!,
This review is from: Identical (Kindle County Book 9) (Kindle Edition)
I won't take up your time by providing a summary of Identical, which you can get in the Amazon Book Despription. Rather, my review will focus on why I felt that Identical was at best an okay read (i.e., acceptable enough to finish but definitely not good enough to recommend).
Overall, I generally find Turow's books to start of slowly and gradually build to a point where they become hard to put down. My experience with Identical differed from the norm for me in that not only did it start slowly, it remained a slow read to its very end. Identical's slow pace, however, is not where my disappointment is primarily focused. My primary sources of disappointment pertain to the following:
...While Turow spends a large portion of Identical's length on character development, I never came to like or dislike any of the characters enough to care one way or the other about what happens to them;
...I found much of the book's plot to be convoluted and, to an even greater extent, unbelievable;
...I never came to be very interested in nor surprised by what what Turow intended to be a surprise ending.
In net, 2 1/2 stars generously rounded up to 3 stars.
I received a free electronic copy of Identical from NetGalley and its publisher in return for an honest, unbiased review. I hope this review is helpful in deciding whether or not it is a book you'd be interested in reading.
