Book review – Murder house

By James Patterson and David Ellis 

It’s been a little while since I’ve done a book review. So it’s only right I keep you up to date with what I’ve been reading.

I’ve been doing a lot of reading throughout this uncertain time. It’s been a way of me escaping from the realities of the world for a while. There is nothing better than getting lost in a good thriller book.

This is the first book I’ve read by the author James Patterson, and let me tell you.. it did not disappoint. I was hooked right from the beginning, I just didn’t want to put the book down.

I’ve read quite a few thriller books; One of my favourites being My Sisters bones by Nuala Ellwood. Which I did a review on if you fancy a read Book Review- My sister’s Bones. And as much as I said that book was one of the best I’d ever read, I think I’ve just found a strong contender..

Murder house has a special twist that I’ve not found in any other books. I won’t tell you what, I don’t want to ruin it for anyone thinking of buying it. It took me by surprise and made the story so much better.

Throughout this book, there were parts that made me nervous. I actually sat there in anticipation waiting to see what was going to happen. It was like I was at the cinema watching it all happen right in front of my eyes. I’ve never had that before, that much involvement, just through reading a book.

So if that doesn’t tell you how much of a good book this is, nothing will. I recommend anyone who loves to read, to give this book a go. You will not regret it.

It is on the large side compared to majority of books these days (lots of pages). But despite this, it didn’t take too long to read. And anyway, we’ve got all the time in the world at the minute haven’t we?

This book is separated into sections, each from a different perspective. But all leading to the same conclusion. The chapters are small, perfect size if you only have half an hour here and there to read.

I had this bought for me one Christmas, but only recently read it. I’m pretty sure you can buy it in almost any book store and online. It costs around £5, depending on where you purchase it from, but completely worth the money.

I did a quick google search to see what other books James Patterson has written. I want to say I found around 40, could be more. And I’ve already found my next purchases.. I’m going to be falling over books at this rate.
