Book Review: The Whisper Man by Alex North
My weekend of sloth-ing continues! I don’t know about y’all, but my “write reviews” pile is getting out of hand, and I can feel it judging me every time I walk by. So in an effort to make a one-book dent, let’s talk about this beauty of a book that I devoured while trapped in a very long tarmac delay on a plane last week.
This one has been ALL OVER the ‘gram lately, and I mean, for good damn reason. This book is obsessively readable - fast paced, mysterious, suspenseful, atmospheric, threatening and then terrifying all in equal measure. It’s one of those stories that drags you right in and spits you out at the end and I LOVED IT.
Give me a book with a gentle supernatural element, that keeps the story in the world of believable. Give me a story that throws some interesting curveballs at me, that create a layer in the story instead of being a single-shock factor. Give me a read that makes me forget entirely that I’ve been sitting on a plane, IN A MIDDLE SEAT, waiting to take off for 2 1/2 hours. That my friends is how good THIS BOOK really is. Middle-seat forgetting good.
And it’s out now, just waiting for you to get a copy and get sucked into a story that will waste away an entire day in the best way possible - in the book zone.
So many thanks to @celadonbooks for this copy - you are the MVP’s of what otherwise would have been the worst flight ever. 😂 I appreciate your taste in deliciously evil books more than I can articulate.
Happy #socksunday friends! May your to-read piles be taller than your to-review piles (unlike me). xx
