BOOK REVIEW: The Whispering Room by Dean Koontz

The Whispering Room by Dean Koontz 11/21/17

Scrappymags 3-word Review: My girl-crush continues!

Genre: Thriller/action/mystery

Shortest Summary Ever: Jane Hawk, rogue FBI agent continues hunting the people responsible for the death of her husband, but a full-on manhunt of Jane is underway as she’s been put on the FBI’s Most Wanted list. Oh snap! 

What’s good under the hood: if you read my review of The Silent Corner you know Jane Hawk became my instant book girl crush – a badass who is smart, manipulative, tough, human and isn’t some tacky damsel-in-distress cliche’. She’s wicked smart. She’s not falling while she’s running or relying on some guy to save her. She calculating and lethal. She’s everything I want to be… in a book! That bad-ass nature continues here where deeper layers of the new Manchurianesque-world emerge. 

The pacing is swift, the story sharp and pages flew by much like the first.

What’s bad or made me mad: The story didn’t advance as much as it did in the first (a curse of many trilogies) but was capable in moving fast enough to keep me in love with the series.

Recommend to: Fans of the first book!

Thanks to NetGalley and Random House Ballantine and the author for an advanced copy in exchange for an honest review and making me feel like the greatest bad-ass chic on the face of the earth!
