Synopsis fromΒ goodreads_logo_140-b533b2204258ee95a93b7c7882d24080

 

I read this a while back but I am only posting the review now. It is interesting to go back to how I started reviewing and how I review now. Anyway, this was then.

I would like to first of all thank the author for gifting me “Brew” in exchange for an honest review.

Brew_coverI will be very honest, up till a point in the book at least 70% in, it was a 3 star for me and I will give you my pros and cons, starting with my cons…since I always like finishing a review on a good note.

Cons:

1) I found that some of the plot was too obvious.

I had pretty much figured out who Mr Jackson and Martin really were and what really happened with Trish early in the book.
2) The gore however brilliantly described throughout the book was a little too much for me, but that is a matter of personal taste.

Pros:

1) This is probably the best element about this book. When reading it, you’re not just reading you are actually watching a movie. Absolutely, brilliant writing skill here Monsieur Estes.
2) Absolutely loved Laney and her wit.
My favorite moment in this book will have to be the “Martin/Rhett…recording device” moment. It made me melt.

What is getting Brew the extra star however is the following line:

β€œLeave us alone, Pouty Lips,” Laney says.
β€œThe two-thousand-and-tens texted me and asked for their silicone breasts and lip injections back.”
For some reasons, that line had me in stitches for a while.
Great read…if you can read beyond the gore and your stomach is stronger than mine!!
