Career of Evil - DNF
Career of Evil - Jay R. Galbraith

DNF at page 252.

 

Skim-read the rest of the book and I most happily DNF it. The conclusion to the mystery was meh, the very last page of the book was blergh.

I will get rid of the three books I own, because I most definitely won´t continue with this series. Maybe someone else will get more out of them than me.

 

Book 4 of Booklikes-opoly

Page Count: DNF at page 252

Earned money: $3.00

New bank account: $32.00

Reading progress update: I've read 252 out of 574 pages.
Career of Evil - Jay R. Galbraith

"She felt strangely unsettled, knowing that she was sleeping five doors away from Strike. That was Matthew´s fault, of course. If you sleep with him, we´re over for good.

Her unruly imagination suddenly presented her with the sound of a knock on the door, Strike inviting himself in on some slim pretext...

Don´t be ridiculous.

She rolled over, pressing her flushed face into the pillow. What was she thinking? Damn Matthew, putting things in her head, judging her by himself....

Strike, meanwhile, had not yet made it into bed. [...] Lying with his hands behind his head he stared up at the dark ceiling and thought about Robin, lying five rooms away."

 

I feel strangely unsettled, because I can´t take 300 more pages of this badly written "hinting-at-a-relationsship" crap. I´m this close to DNF this book and skim read who the murderer is. I have to think this over for a little bit.

This book could be about 100 pages shorter if it wasn´t for Matthew, Robins horrible fiance. I never liked him to begin with, because he is an insufferably jealous twit.

On top of that Galbraith / Rowling is constantly hinting that there might be some feelings between Robin and Strike. And I don´t want them to become an item ... I just don´t.

 

The mystery is pretty good and kind of creepy and I would like the story to have its focus  on the mystery. But unfortunately there is too much of said relationsship stuff going on for my liking.
