It’s been a while since I’ve done a review on a thriller book.. this time by an author called Peter James.
I love a thriller book as much as the next person, but for some reason I’ve been gravitating towards romance novels and all things cute and girly recently.. I know, I’ve shocked myself. Anyway, I was looking through my books and realised I hadn’t done a review on this book ‘Need you dead’.. so here it is.
I did read this quite a while ago, but I still remember how much I enjoyed it. It’s a long book, but I’m all for that. I love reading something that I know will last me a while. At the start of the book, I remember struggling to get into it.. it’s not that the book is rubbish by any means (it definitely isn’t), just for some reason it didn’t grip me from the very beginning.
But because I’m a lover of books, I don’t give up on them! I think it was my second time picking this book up that it started to grab my attention. And then well, after that I could not put it down. As soon as the story started to pick up, so did my interest in the book. I feel like that’s normal though.
Like any of my other book reviews I’m not going to delve into the story, just purely because I don’t want to ruin it for anyone that is yet to read it. I’m pretty sure this was bought for me as a present a little while back (because everyone knows to buy me books). But you can get this in many book stores and on Amazon. It isn’t too expensive either, around £7, which is standard for a book here in the UK.
When it comes to thriller books I love having a look for them in supermarkets.. they just seem to have more and slightly cheaper than online. Also WHSmiths is a really good place to buy your books. Like true Lois style, as soon as I read this book I went online to see what others he had written.. to my surprise there are many.. and I mean many! So I will be sure to pick up some more next time I visit a book store.
I definitely recommend giving this book a go, if thriller is your genre.. this book is for you.
