The Cuckoo's Calling

Postby locke » Sat Jul 13, 2013 10:27 pm

So she published another novel back in April under a pseudonym and has been 'unmasked.'

Anyone read it?

I've heard that it's already hitting the top of the bestseller's list, so chances are someone here has read it. The plot sounds pretty standard with a few interesting twists, but I haven't read anything by her that isn't Harry Potter, so I don't really have the faith built up in her as a writer of other genres that some might.

Good on her for attempting a pseudonym, though. It's always an interesting experiment, and I always kind of wish that once people realized a writer is an obvious pen name that they would just stop looking into who it is.

She seems to be a good story teller, which largely makes up for her deficiencies as a writer. I haven't even heard of the book before now though, so it can't be THAT popular?
