I remember someone raving about this book a few months ago, before it was released. The hype excited me to buy it and read it. Did it live up to the hype? Not quite, but Child 44 is a very good book. Intelligent writing, no cheesy dialogue and no plot twist at the end that leaves you reeling. The characters are more important than the plot, and I think that is one of the reasons this book shines.
Anyone else read this yet?
