I almost never read reviews about books. I use book reviews to give me book suggestions though. I think reading is so personal. But I made the mistake of looking at a couple of reviews before I read The October List. It didn’t deter me, but I think it may have influenced me a bit.
Jeffrey Deaver is one of my favorite authors. I think he is a master at plot twists, surprises and storytelling. This book was full of all of that. Written in a backward story wasn’t as hard to follow as some reviewers seemed to think it was. Just when you think the surprises and twists are done, here comes yet another one.
This backward story concept by itself is pretty interesting. You do have to pay attention. Once I figured that out, it was easy to follow.
I recommend this book. It was entertaining and kept me on the edge of my seat. Really, this was very good. Read it!
