Series : Nicolas Le Floch #1
I should write this in French but I don’t feel like it. Overall it was ok but not great, and the series has potential. My main issue with this book was that it took forever to read. It may have only been just 300-some pages, but it felt like almost a thousand. Now, I don’t know whether it was the long chapters or the fact that I was reading it on my ereader and it might have gone better had I opted for print…maybe I’ll try to get a physical copy of the next in the series. Or maybe I should read the next one when I haven’t just bought some new computer games.
There were also some rather convenient coincidences and a tendency for prisoners to die by suicide while in custody. Admittedly, it wasn’t always convenient when they died, but as a wrap up it felt weak. I’m not sure I’d call it predictable but I did guess right in several instances.
Don’t get me wrong, I did enjoy reading this as a buddy read! I just wasn’t too impressed by it and hope the next one is better fleshed out.
