    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.

    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 proven that she can write whatever she wants and it will be bloody brilliant. one thing i think she does really well, and with this book in particular, is how complex her stories are. no one could dare call her a lazy writer. the plot for this was so intricately crafted and it was absolutely remarkable how everything was woven together. the book blurb doesnt even scratch the surface of what this story entails - there was just so much, so many layers.

    and i think because of that, the book did get to be a little lengthy. 650 pages is massive for a mystery/thriller novel. some parts did seem to drag and there was a lot that i felt could have been omitted. but regardless of length, this book always captured my attention. the last paragraph definitely hinted at the beginning of a new case, so i am very excited to see what robin and strike get up to in the next book. fingers crossed it wont be another three year wait to find out!

    Lethal White, the 4th volume in Cormoran Strike series, kept me at the edge of the seat/bed during the past 4 days. I think it is the best so far although some parts could have been trimmed by the editor. It starts to resemble the Harry Potter series, with each book longer and longer. If this one has 650 pages I hope the next will not have 800 or more. Rowling talent as a storyteller in so I was never bored but still, the plot could have been a bit more intense with a bit less filler.

    Lethal White, the 4th volume in Cormoran Strike series, kept me at the edge of the seat/bed during the past 4 days. I think it is the best so far although some parts could have been trimmed by the editor. It starts to resemble the Harry Potter series, with each book longer and longer. If this one has 650 pages I hope the next will not have 800 or more. Rowling talent as a storyteller in so I was never bored but still, the plot could have been a bit more intense with a bit less filler.

    The novel starts with the ending of A Career of Evil, namely the wedding between the Asshole and Robin. J.K. Rawling managed to create one of the most irritating characters I’ve ever read that it is hard for me to believe it can be found in real life. Anyways, after the drama at the wedding the plot moves one year forward when Cormoran’s services are sought by a young, psychotic boy who wants to hire the detective to uncover a hanging he thought he witnessed when he was very young. Although the boy was mentally ill, Cormoran’s instinct tells him that the story is not wholly invented and from the little he got from the youngster’s chaotic mind he manages to identify his brother, a dedicated socialist and activist. From here the plot gets more an more complicated, involving politics, blackmail, upper class dynamics and murder.

    The plot is very complex, there are many threads in the plot that do not seem to be connected until the end, as it is written in the blurb it is very ambitious in scope. Off course, JKR added to this mix the personal lives of Cormoran and Robin who are even more tumultuous then in the previous books.

    I love this series and the author so I can’t wait to read the next one. However, I hope it will be a bit shorter and more intense.

    I can't even remember the last time I was so impatient for the next book in a series to be released.

    picks up shortly after where Career of Evil ends at Robin and Matthew's wedding. Then the plot fast-forwards to a year later when London is preparing to host the Olympics. Strike is now famous and business is flourishing. Robin, on the other hand, is suffering from PTSD and is living in a state of misery.

    Two cases are at the forefront, while some side cases also get some attention. There is a lot going on, with many characters to keep track of. While the mysteries eventually come together, at times I was lost when trying to keep up. Characters from previous installments also pop up, including revolting Charlotte and idiotic Matthew. I also found the plot to be drawn out and the pacing, at times, to be rather slow. However, things do pick up in the second half.

    I read this series because I love Strike and Robin’s characters, as well as their chemistry. They are both multidimensional and believable. It feels like there was finally some forward movement with their relationship, but it remains to be seen how things will progress.

    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

    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 Robin and Strike's separate relationships. They are a great partnership and the scenes with them solving crimes together are always fantastic, but I do not enjoy the romantic aspect that is super amped up in this one. (Although I know plenty of other people love them as a pairing so you'll probably enjoy those parts of the story)

    TL;DR - Great mystery, but I will scream if the next book in this series is this long.
