Customer Review

VINE VOICEon 27 November 2009
I read Child 44 a few months ago and really enjoyed it even though I'm not hugely keen on thriller type books but I thought it covered life in Stalinist times fairly well. The Secret Speech though is very different. I bought it in a 3 for 2 offer and wish I hadn't; it's a complete waste of money. It's written in what I can only describe as a haphazard way and seems to jump about like a Mexican bean from scene to scene. I wonder whether the author was under some pressure to produce a sequel in a hurry but it could do with editing to make it clearer. I'm not going to say much about the plot for like most thrillers it's implausible. That on its own wouldn't make me dismiss a book. Rather it's the lack of character development which is more concerning. Shame because I did think that Child 44 was an interesting premise.
