Tedious and Over Written
Reviewed in the United States on January 15, 2021
Woof…This is not a thriller, it's a slog. When the thriller aspect finally kicks in the novel is almost over. Tedious and exhausting character descriptions (telling, not showing), along with an almost real-time documentation about what it's like to work as a publishing assistant are what starts this book, and it doesn't get much better. Tried to keep going but found myself skipping huge chunks without actually missing out any plot (so, you know, not a thriller) and wouldn't have kept going at all if I didn't have the obligation to review. Over written AND boring. Not a winning combo. Avoid.
