Review of Shadow on the Wall from Independent Book Reviews
In general I never repost reviews. I’m of the opinion that reviews should stand on their own and speak for themselves. Posting them on my blog is kind of self serving, but you know what? I’m too excited about this one not to do it Independent Book Reviews is a great site that doesn’t hold back in their reviews and I was lucky enough to have Shadow considered for a review.
MJ Syl wrote the following:
Gripping, evocative, violent – three words that strain to do justice to this novel but can’t quite give you a real sense of the story. Set in modern day Turkey but describing something out of a Middle Eastern “1984”, the sense of place and tension is almost unbelievable.
I started this on a Friday and, due to other commitments, I was unable to resume reading it for several days. However, even after only the first few pages, I was desperate to get back to it during that time. It envelops you, oppresses you, buries you in the desert sands which feature in the book till you start to imagine you can feel the heat and the impending storm brewing.
