This week I’ll be taking a look at The Rook by Daniel O’Malley. This is a book I wouldn’t usually pick up and I probably never would have heard of it until it got nominated for the monthly group read in one of the book clubs I participate in on Goodreads.
“Do you know the name of the body you are in? It’s Myfanway. Myfanway Alice Thomas. I would say that it’s my name, but you’ve got the body now, so I suppose you’ll be using it.”
This is a quotation taken from the very first few lines of the first chapter and I suppose it seems strange. My first impression too, but incredibly exciting. I hope the book continues to be as exciting. Daniel O’Malley looks to be promising a lot of talent for me already. This book falls into the Urban-Fantasy genre and so far I’ve noticed lots of action, some exciting tension and a hell of a lot of confusion.
I’ve heard some very positive feedback on this story from other friends who’ve already read it, so hopefully I’ll be finishing this book in the next couple of days!
