Lethal White Reviews
please hurry and release the 4th book, I can't wait to see how Cormoron and Robin's relationship change, if at all haha, love these books!!
confession: there are times when i feel like i am an unreliable rater/reviewer. j.k. rowling practically gave me my childhood, so i feel like the least i could do to thank her is by reading and giving all of her books 5 stars. to say im biased would be an understatement. but in the case of this book, i can say, with good conscience, it deserves all 5 of those stars.
i was worried when JKR first began writing for adults, especially under the crime/mystery genre. but four books of this series have ...more
Roses r Red, Violets r Blue, the Cover's Green just to suite you.💚💚
Strike & Robin are back for their biggest case so far..
..case full of Red Herrings & White Horses.
A Minister getting blackmailed, Riot in the Olympics, Mysterious Murder..Goblet of Fire, 's that you?!
Plus, more unexpected twists into the personal life of Strike & Robin..
Certainly I'll miss picturing Hugh & Emma as I used to since my first read, Oct.2013.
Lethal White is 2 Parts book, 2 Cases.. not total ...more
This book gets 5 stars for the personal/professional relationship updates between Robin and Cormoran, but only gets 2 stars for the 'murder mystery' presented in this book. I *loved* seeing all the extra page time that Robin and Cormoran finally get in regards to their individual personal lives (warning: the slow burn still burns slowly). In fact, the book is practically at the half way mark before anyone even gets murdered. Loved it! But then the mystery does take over like I said. Whi ...more
650 PAGES IS TOO MANY PAGES FOR A MYSTERY NOVEL.
That being said, JKR puts together a damn good mystery and I loved all of the actual mystery parts of this story. She is the *best* at creating great and interesting and fun characters. (More Barclay in the next book, kthnx)
However, I think that JKR is pretty terrible at writing romance (don't @ me) and I very, very, very much do not love the whole Robin/Strike pairing and everything surrounding those parts of the story or anything dealing with Ro ...more
JK Rowling gives us her trademark intricate, tightly plotted, and complex crime fiction in this, the fourth of her engrossing Cormoran Strike series, set amidst the heady and euphoric background of the surprisingly successful 2012 London Olympics. It begins where Career of Evil left off, at Robin Ellacott's disastrous wedding to the sullen and resentful Matthew, with Robin over the moon at being reinstated at Strike's detective agency as partner. Strike is finding his fame is reducing his opport ...more
UPD: This is how I find out?! From a newsletter on Bookdepository?!! Release date: 18th September 2018. Could I BE any more excited??
Yes, I'm stooping that low! I'm using GIFs now because there are no words to express how much I'm waiting for this book, I need more of Robin and Cormoran and their unusual relationship. I'm sure that so many things are going to go down in the next one because I can't stand suspense any longer... aaaah!
As I decided to read this book and only this one during the past week, it dawned upon me that indeed, this book has been written by Robert Galbraith, and it's J.K. Rowling who is the ghostly figure here. I don't fear being ostracized for my rating. But most of my friends have given this book higher ratings than me.
The denouement was not the balm that could assuage the page upon page of nothingness. The murderer's identity was moot. The damage was done. The bird has flown the coop. Though this wa ...more
