My mind is officially blown! The 7 1/2 Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle had such an intricately layered plot. Trust me on this one - it's a MUST READ! Unfortunately, I refuse to explain it. You simply have to take my word for it. Why? This is the kind of read that you absolutely need to jump into blindly. You will feel like you are flailing in the water, drowning. Just keep reading, treading through the chapters as you go. Grab hold of the bits that are sent your way and store them.
Honestly, it still won't be enough. I thought I was prepared for Turton. I read carefully, giving it my full attention. I even re-read parts to be sure I understood what I thought I was meant to understand. I even highlighted and took notes on my kindle. None of it was enough. I was no match for the sheer genius of Turton's creative, out of the box thinking. I did not see where I was being led.
This was an outstanding literary puzzle! It was not only an expertly crafted, richly layered whodunnit. It truly ends up being so much more. This was a truly stunning debut novel! I can not wait to see where Turton's mind takes us next. I know I will definitely be along for the ride!
