The Cuckoo's Calling

The Cuckoo's Calling - Robert Galbraith Read this review, and many more on my blog October Tune!

I don’t often read crime novels, just because they don’t interest me a lot, but I wanted to give this one a try because it was written by J.K. Rowling, and she’s just one of my favourite writers.

I kinda liked this book, and I actually thought it was thrilling, I really wanted to get to the last couple of pages, so I could see if Lula indeed had been murdered, and who would have done it. I can say I was surprised when I read the end, and I think I actually went:


And though I like Rowling’s writing, I was again annoyed by the fact that she likes to write out accents. Especially the accent of one of a woman that Strike interviewed was really annoying to read, and I actually found myself skipping the sentences she said a couple of times. I also found it a bit weird that with every part in the book (it had four or five parts in total I think) the chapter numbers started all over again. I mean, why not just continue the chapter numbers, but that’s just one of my little pet peeves.

Like I said, I liked the book, and out of all the characters I liked Robin, and her excitement about solving this case, the most. I really hope we’ll be seeing more of her in the following book(s), and I am sure I will continue to read this series, though my opinion on crime novels still hasn’t changed!
