I chose this rating as I enjoyed this book so much I felt that others would too. I am a redhead myself and this book was recommended to me by the author John Dolan and I loved it. LOTS of INTRIGUING twists and turns some quite unexpected at that, a very exciting read and a good use of mythology regarding those of us with red hair.

I was attracted to this title as a redhead myself. The writing was not only intelligent but imaginative - albeit occasionally pushing overboard the boundaries of stretching the imagination. Having said that it is clear the book is well-researched in terms of the mythology and legends related to redheads, and the book threw up a lot of information that I was previously unaware of. Rebecca, the heroine, is a fiesty and fiery individual who has multiple facets and the male lead Jim makes a good counterpart, although I have to say I preferred Larry... At no time was I in a position to be able to work out what was going to happen next, the story being totally unpredictable. For me, the story had rather too much gore for my taste but nonetheless it worked within the context of the story. Shades of the holocaust maybe? An enjoyable read for blondes, brunettes and redheads...

Wow. I don't know where to start. I was over the moon when I won a signed copy of Redhead on Goodreads. It felt so personal with the enclosed postcard.

The cover of the book is so eye catching and inviting. Very mythical and just hinting at things to come.

The first chapter takes you back in time and I got straight in to the story from the first page. It actually gave me goosebumps and I felt part of the story.
I couldn't wait to move on and see how things developed.

The short chapters were ideal for me as I don't get an awful lot of time for reading these days with running after a lively toddler.
Normally I would have finished it in a few days but the short chapters allowed me to pick it up and get straight back in to the adventure without having to re-read the same page over and over.

Rebecca and Larry were very likeable characters and I would love to have learned more about the deaths of Rebecca's parents and Larry's wife and daughter.
I kept thinking this might have been connected in some way.
I disliked Jim for most of the book as he struggled with his feelings for Rebecca. Larry seemed a lot more sensitive to what she was going through.

I enjoyed reading about all the different locations and was able to picture everything. Even the history and mythology was well researched and left you wanting to learn more.

As I was reading on I kept thinking that this would make a great movie. Hopefully one day we'll be able to watch it on our screens.

The book had many gruesome parts. Some of what happened was slightly predictable in my opinion, like the bloodline and Neferatu's actions. Nonetheless unputdownable!

I hate finishing books when they become part of you.
I would love to read more about what happens next.

Great read. Not just for redheads. I hope this isn't Ian's last book.

Format: Paperback
This fictional novel was something that stood out a mile with not only its somewhat cliché title and striking cover, but also with the most inspired and creative storyline that captured my imagination. Just as redheads attract attention for being distinctively unique so too does this book, being a character-driven tale that is highly memorable. All the characters that the story focuses on have red hair, which is ironic as it leads to something much deeper regarding those individuals who are this particular coloring and how they are deeply connected. Journalist Rebecca is a fiery, sprightly and determined individual whom I was able to relate to and empathize with easily, as you are taken along her journey of discovery and into the unknown. Traveling across the world from the stifling heat in Africa to wet, damp Scotland along with the character one is drawn into past history and an old feud which is much more serious than initially meets the eye. This gripping tale is both captivating and interesting, with a most original and inventive storyline that I found most intriguing. Being fast-paced and full of action and drama from page one, I was swept along the most exciting rollercoaster of a ride into a dense plot that was thrilling. A lot of the settings within the story were real places and the use of this made it even more believable, hence I could clearly picture in my mind the surroundings and the atmosphere of each different environment.

I fell in love with each individual character and their stories, thus I felt a more intimate and personal connection to this unfolding story being more than just a fictitious read but rather something much more authentic.

I received this book as a freebie on Goodreads. As a redhead myself and a mother to two redheaded sons I was intrigued. This book ticks all the boxes for me, good believable characters,and lots of unpredictable excitement. My mother used to tell me I was a redhead because she would leave me out in the rain when I was naughty and I went rusty, I so much prefer this version of events. a jolly good must read for all but chic lit lovers! Thank you Ian Cook, I do hope a sequel is well on the way.
