Review: Close to Death

Close to Death
Close to Death by Anthony Horowitz
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The Hawthorne series is one of my favorites. I find Horowitz’s writing to be funny, engaging and clever and this one is no exception.

I found the beginning of this story a bit slower to move and I had a hard time keeping track of all the neighbors at first. And it got more complicated before it started to unravel so I found the pacing to be a bit less engaging than the others in the series.

But I loved the meta nature like in the others and I loved jumping in and out of the story. I also loved to find out a bit more about Hawthorne’s past which I assume will be more of a plot line in upcoming stories.

As always, the ending and how it all comes together is very clever and so fast that I had to read it twice! I can’t wait for the next one!

with gratitude to netgalley and Harper for an advanced copy in exchange for an honest review.
