Stone's Fall: A Novel

Stone's Fall: A Novel - Iain Pears This is a tough one to review (even in brief) and choose how many stars. The beginning was great and I was very quickly pulled into the characters and the mystery. Then the style changed and it turned almost into an epistolary form with the murdered victim from the beginning mystery going on and on and on and on about his life. I hung in until the beginning though and it was jaw dropping.

Not worth the what felt like millions of hours of over-detailed boredom that was the middle.
