Tom Rob Smith ✓ 9 REVIEW

FREE READ ´ E-book, or Kindle E-pub ✓ Tom Rob Smith REVIEW Ó Child 44 T brott inte existerar och där oskyldiga kan torteras till döds och man försöker mörka ett barns död För som titeln anger handlar det om en lång rad ouppklarade barnamor. Child 44 is one of the best books I ve read all year So of course while I was reading I wanted to tell everybody about it shout it to the rooftops fighting the urge to send a recommendation to all my good GR buddies One of the reasons I didn t was because I realized that while I was riveted this book is definitely not for everyone It s grim and gristly and there are a couple of scenes that are like a punch to the gut In fact the beginning almost reads like a horror novel It s a thriller thougha very good thrillerTom Rob Smith creates this nightmarish claustrophobic world of mistrust and fear that made me feel like I had been thrown into a horrible dystopia Moscow during the time of Stalin was brutal and I think the realization that these atrocities really happened is what grabs you I ve read reviews from people that lived in Russia who criticize that Smith gets it wrong and his world is about as subtle as a brick to the head But since this is fiction I didn t mind that I was so completely engulfed in the paranoia along with the characters that I loved itThe basic story is about a murderer traveling around Russia slaughtering children based off a true story But instead of trying to catch the killer the State wants to push it under the rug You see it doesn t look good if there is an unsolved crime Conseuently for an officer of the Militia to honestly try to fight crime is very dangerous In many ways the story is a lot like The Hangman s Daughter But where Hangman s Daughter was boring Child 44 is almost impossible to set down That s because Smith pulls you into his gritty world His characters are not modern enlightened individuals that are better than everyone else They are part of this society with their own fears and rationalizations Leo is a cold blooded police officer who only decides to make a stand because he s forced into it I liked that I like the journey that Leo has to take And to my surprise the suspense for Child 44 does not come from endless action scenes It comes from the anticipation that the State can and does horrible things to innocent people all the time What is going to happen to Leo What will happen to his wife his parents and anyone that helps him I think through a good portion of this book I was clutching the pages Some reviews complain that Smith s writing is too simplistic and choppy but I was so into the story I didn t notice I didn t even mind that he didn t use uotation marks or tags a usual writing complaint of mine There s a strong premise in this book about what it means to throw others under the bus to preserve the peace The rationalization of the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few as Spock would say changes a bit when it s used as an excuse for the arrest and conviction of innocent people especially if you are one of those innocent people Smith never forgets his premise either That s why the book ended the way it did The premise had to have a full arc And while I appreciate a strong underlining theme I m not sure the pessimist in me believed it The ending was a little bit too pat and easy conseuently making it the weakest part of the book But how much gloom and doom can a reader take I think Child 44 is excellent I give it six stars I will definitely read book 2For an awesome review of this book please check out Steve s review Love Me Tender punch to the gut In fact the beginning almost reads like a horror novel It s a thriller thougha very good thrillerTom Rob Smith creates this nightmarish claustrophobic world of mistrust and fear that made me feel like I had been thrown into a horrible dystopia Moscow during the time of Stalin was brutal and I think the realization that these atrocities really happened is what grabs you I ve read reviews from Stephen Hawking A Biography Greenwood Biographies people that lived in Russia who criticize that Smith gets it wrong and his world is about as subtle as a brick to the head But since this is fiction I didn t mind that I was so completely engulfed in the The River of Doubt Theodore Roosevelt's Darkest Journey paranoia along with the characters that I loved itThe basic story is about a murderer traveling
