I got this book from the library, renewed it two times and then I had to give it back. I immediately got another copy, because I obviously need a book about speed reading, if i don‘t manage to read it in nine weeks. 🙄⠀

Me: …
Mom: I need your wishlist now!
Me: Just buy as many books from my wishlist as the budget allows.

So happy birthday to me!

Holy freaking moly! Everytime I thought I figured out what happened to the girls there was another twist in the story - until the very last page. Everyone seemed to be a suspect at least once throughout the book. Excellent book.

I enjoyed this book thoroughly. There were so many twists and every time I thought I knew what‘s going on I was wrong. The relationship between Ken and Nolan and their banter was just great. And Nolan having to confess hating Pierre less and less was so funny. All through the book I was torn between laughing about the great dialogue and forgetting to breathe, because something dangerous or horrible is about to happen.

Eki I could do with some more books of this kind. 13mo

I really liked this story. The bad guy was quite clever in hiding his tracks. There were several suspects and not everybody was just what we thought he was in the beginning. ⠀

This case was not very sherlocky. Not a big mystery, basically just a little chase and saving the woman in distress. I guessed the bad intention early on.⠀

I don‘t have any booksocks. But I do have books and knitted socks. Which book could be better fitted to be combined with a sock than Harry Potter? Dobby was freed by a sock in a book. And he knitted Harry socks for christmas (for which Harry could have been much more grateful😡). ⠀

I guessed at the beginning what happened to the builder, but Doyle managed to confuse me in the middle of the story, but in the end I was correct, although I would have never guessed the reason. This is basically a story of male entitlement. ⠀

Sarah83 I read it two years ago. I always read always the whole page and than the marginalia... 1y
Redwritinghood I took all the inserts out and put sticky notes on them to indicate where they were in the text. I read the book first then went back and read all the notes in the text along with the inserts. (edited) 1y
wordslinger42 I read the page and then the margins/inserts. I think no matter how you read it, though, it's just one of those books that needs to be read more than once to really understand it 1y

It took me longer to get into this book than into A man called Ove, but that may be because I am secretly a grumpy old man and not a little kid. 😉
Three hours into it I was crying again, and I knew the book would be good. I had a hard time keeping up with the fairy tales, but in the end it felt like magic, when everything clicked into place and fit together perfectly.

InBooksILive Love the unicorn! 1y
Eki @InBooksILive Thanks. It‘s one of my slippers. Everybody needs unicorns when they have cold feet. 😉 1y

The book is creepy and had a lot of unexpected twists for such a short novel, but the ending felt like a cliffhanger to me.

Rereading the first few books of the series before reading books five to nine, cause I couldn‘t for the life of me remember what happened.
So in this book Andrej unwillingly starts fighting and becomes aware of his unusual nature. That he weirdly never wondered about before. Oh well…
