#PUYB Book Review - Whisper of Crows

Whisper of CrowsWhisper of Crows by Jameson Hesse
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

There's definitely some Hitchcock influence that has been tucked away in the words of this author. The way that spooky feeling sneaks up on you is evidence of good writing. There are certain points when you get lost in the story and as it twists and turns, you feel like you're reading a Stephen King novel. I'm not sure why this book has not made it big or it isn't a movie. Maybe distribution has something to do with it but where story, writing and content is concerned, this book has it all. No flaws. No maybe it should have been this way or that.

This is a book that will test your imagination. Bits of this book come across as unrealistic and you catch yourself thinking, 'No, it can't be.' Then, you're in for a surprise and the story turns and starts over and you're off on another part of this journey. I'd like to give you a breakdown of each character, each scenario so perhaps we'll discover something new but no, I cannot do this without uncovering bits of the story and that would just spoil.

All I can say is, bravo. It's perfect.

Would I recommend this read? Oh yes, definitely.

Overall assessment:
Content: 5/5
Editing: 5/5
Formatting: 5/5
Pacing: 5/5
Offensive content?: NC17 to R mostly for theme.

Disclosure: I received a review copy of this book from the author through Pump Up Your Book. I did not receive any payment in exchange for this review nor was I obliged to write a positive one.
