Authors, Writers, Publishers, and Book Readers
Like any good political thriller, A Very English Revolution has a dozen characters to keep up with. I was almost halfway through the book before I could keep everyone straight. I’m easily confused, though, so that doesn’t mean much. I was almost glad when a character was killed. That was one less person to keep track of. Horrible, I know, but it’s not a book, not real life, so I think I’m okay.
I wasn’t surprised to find that people are the same all over the world and that corruption is also everywhere, but I hadn’t realized that England is dealing with immigration issues similar to those here in the U.S. Apparently, who and how much is a hot button issue all over the world. When S.G. first asked me to review the book, I asked if I would need to be knowledgeable about British politics. Or even have a clue. Because I don’t. He assured me that I wouldn’t; that this is a universal story that anyone can appreciate.
He was right. A Very English Revolution is full of murder, terrorism, racism, church corruption, and political intrigue. It’s also a well-written story full of secrets that will keep you guessing. And quite possibly looking for a sequel.
I received this book free from the author in exchange for an honest review.
