Looking Glass by Andrew Mayne ~ #Mystery #BookReview

35157278This book is the second in the Naturalist series. I was in awe of the first book – the main character was delightfully awkward and strange. He’s more comfortable with himself and more mainstream in this book, but still enjoyable.

I really like the dark humor that runs through the pages, lightening the heavy subject matter. The plot was intricate and introduced an interesting twist – it’s not often that a ‘science heavy’ book touches on the supernatural.

Writing, plot, characters, pacing – all deliver! Snappy dialogue and suspense to spare! 5 stars!

The Naturalist by Andrew Mayne ~ #Mystery #BookReview

34330645Please let me like the next book in this series as much as I liked this one! That’s probably a little scarce to suffice as a review . . .

I thoroughly enjoyed my time with the main character, a socially awkward science tech nerd who’s a bit bumbling and a bit stupid for such a smart guy. And the mystery? Well, is there truly a mystery, or just some connections one man wants to see? (Spoiler – There’s a mystery.) But as to that mystery, who’s the logical suspect?

I really couldn’t put this book down. I also couldn’t quite put my thumb on exactly what was going on. Is logically unlogical a term? This review may be a bit more vague than most of my reviews, which are all vague because I HATE reading a spoiler. (If you want to know what a book is about, read the back cover. If you want to know about one reader’s perception of the story and her journey through the pages, read my reviews.) This book was a thoroughly enjoyable journey. I was sad when it ended, and am anxiously awaiting the release of the second book in the series. (Please, sir, may I have some more?) 5 stars!
