Review from OnlineBookClub.org
I was so hooked with the plot it was really a struggle to put down this book once I get started especially when one by one, each well-developed character was introduced in the story and had come to be an important part of a whole. As I read, I was able to feel with the characters and was filled with different emotions like happiness, sadness, anger, hate and love. Though I didn’t think I will hate and love a character as much as I do with Hiram. He confused me sometimes with his actions as one moment he’s being crude and then an unorthodox but still loving father the next. He made me pause and think and that made him a truly remarkable character, someone I will surely remember for a very long time.
I love the psychological aspect of this novel as it was challenging to think and understand the characters’, specifically Hiram’s actions, reasons and motivations. Furthermore, I love how politics in healthcare and journalism were explored through the story, how there were also citing of sexism or the corrupt practices in some philanthropic foundations. Though it was so sad to realize, that yes, those circumstances were actually happening in real life.
I rate this book 4 out of 4 stars because it was well-written and I didn’t find anything to dislike about it. It was also thought-provoking, thus, I highly recommend this to everyone but most especially to those who love crime and psychological stories.
