5.0 out of 5 stars Not since reading 'Love in a time of Cholera' have I enjoyed description like this...
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 7 July 2019
As an author of non-fiction books, I thought it was high time that I took on the writing of a fiction novel as my next challenge.

My agent had suggested it previously, but now I was ready.

In his book 'On Writing, Stephan King suggests that all authors should do two things to improve their craft: read and write, a lot.

I was interested to see how JK Rowling under the pseudonym of Robert Galbraith (sorry if this is a plot spoiler for you), would handle the transition from writing for children to adults.

I'll tell you how well she managed it: I became so engrossed in the first of the series of Cormoran Strike detective novels that I forgot about studying her work and just enjoyed it.

You don't need me to summarise the story, after all, that's what the back cover is for, but I will say that I am in awe of Galbraith/ Rowling. I have not since reading 'Love in a time of Cholera' by Gabriel Garcia Marquez, found another author who makes a detailed description of the 'mundane' as entertaining as Galbraith.

it's an unbelievably tricky skill to walk the tight rope between superfluous and necessary description (I know all too well, often falling the wrong side).

I still don't l know how she does it, but now I'm too busy reading the strike novels solely for pleasure to care.

PS: I sent the book to my dad in Cornwall who is now also hooked!

Enjoy.

Matt :)
