I review a book about a detective investigating a possible murder six months before the world is supposed to end. I also try not to say he’s seeking a murderer at the end of the world. Rats.

Few reviewers had anything bad to say about this book where (maybe) a wife disappears and her husband could be to blame. Or maybe not. Apparently it creeps you out and keeps you guessing until the end, and is very well-written in the process.
Despite being about a closed-off community of Hassidic Jews, this is a sad and powerful story is surprisingly relatable for the world at large – many of the reviewers said they wept when they read it.
An irreverent, debauched historical comedy about impressionists, most of the reviewers found it brilliant, and the few issues found in it were a slightly lagging main story and juvenile humor.
Reviewers were genuinely surprised Mantel could make this particular period of history fresh and engaging, with all the other media out there on it. The second book in her trilogy about Cromwell (Thomas, not Oliver), it will keep you hooked even though you already know the ending. It’s a Prosenotes Pick!
Prosenotes’s first non-aggregated book review! I take a look at the first book of “The Song of Ice and Fire” series by George R.R. Martin, the extremely popular “A Game of Thrones”.
Though really kind of a bunch of short stories within short stories, this book, “4 ½” in the “Dark Tower” series, satisfies. Not groundbreaking or anything, just good, apparently really good.
The story of a Civil War order from General Grant expelling the Jews from areas under his control and its aftermath, this narrative is a well-researched and interesting story of redemption.
