What recent novel has been the most popular among Chandler Library staff? The Kind Worth Killing. On a flight from London to Boston, two strangers meet and play a game, one in which they begin revealing more and more intimate details about themselves. Secrets, schemes, and murder plans lead to a lethal game of cat and mouse. Read on to see what our reviewers had to say.
Melissa: Hot damn. A psychological thriller just as good as Gone Girl and the more recent 'it' book, The Girl on the Train... in fact, it might be even BETTER than both of them. More twists, more unreliable narrators, more crazy characters...more everything! The first half of the book was great -- it went back and forth between Ted and Lily sharing secrets from their past, glimpses into their present-day lives, and slivers of the conversation they had on the plane from London to Boston. But then around the halfway mark it became FANTASTIC and I couldn't stop reading. Then that ending! Oh, so good.
Shelli: The author continued to outsmart me! Didn't know how it was going to end, but I wasn't disappointed!
Marybeth: Everyone is a deranged psychopath! Loved it!
Rosanna: Had to wash my hands after reading this because some of the characters were just so icky! But that didn't stop me from plowing through the book in two days!
Henry: Did you ever think you could carry out murders and get away with it? Of course not, but then again you're not the major character in The Kind Worth Killing. Growing up in an art colony, she endures abuse and becomes an angel of vengenace bent on retribution. As she spins webs to trap and extinguish her victims, you can't help but feel sympathy for the murderer. With stunning character development and an enthralling plot, you will be entertained from the start to the finish. In fact, you might even believe those murdered were The Kind Worth Killing!
