Lethal White (Galbraith) - Book Reviews

Book Reviews
At times you might feel as you did when reading the Harry Potter books, particularly later in the series, when they got longer and looser. You love the plot, and you love being in the company of the characters, and you admire the author's voice and insights and ingenuity, and you relish the chance to relax into a book without feeling rushed or puzzled or shortchanged.… Long live the fertile imagination and prodigious output of J.K. Rowling.
New York Times

Rowling's wizardry as a writer is on fulsome display in Lethal White ( 3.5/4 stars), a behemoth of a novel that flies by in a flash. This is a crime series deeply rooted in the real world, where brutality and ugliness are leavened by the oh-so-human flaws and virtues of Galbraith's irresistible hero and heroine.
USA Today

Even if the world is the seedy underbelly of contemporary London and not Magical Hogwarts, cracking the cover of a Galbraith novel is like stepping through a portal. You're immersed all at once.

Addictive, murderous fun.

Compulsively readable.

(Starred review) Rowling impressively sustains suspense over the course of a lengthy mystery in her fourth outing for London PI Cormoran Strike…. Rowling's emotionally intelligent portrayal of her protagonists never overwhelms the whodunit story line.
Publishers Weekly

[T]he book picks up exactly where the last installment left off…. The mystery itself is complex… verging on convoluted … [and] there’s way too much filler in between. Let’s hope Rowling’s next book is sharper and shorter.
