The Silkworm by Robert Galbraith



What do I think about The Silkworm? Written by JK Rowling - obviously a great writer and worth reading for that reason alone

But there were some things I didn't like quite so much in this book:

Overly arcane chapter headings – a bit pretentious

There was too much grisly stuff for me - unnecessary sexual content - tending towards Casual Vacancy grittiness

I still like the detective/sidekick characters a lot.

I'm looking forward to the next one in the series and hope she reverts to Cuckoo's Calling style

  1. I totally agree!!!! I am just on the last chapter but I couldn't have given a review better than you did. Have you read any of S.J. Bolton's work? She's quite good.
