After reading the second book of Margaret Atwood's trilogy "The Year of the Flood", I take a break with something lighter. "The Seven Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle" First novel by Stuart Turton " it is supposed to be a mystery room like the ones by Aghata Christy. Once l watched an interview of an Italian writer, and he said Sartre the French philosopher, used to read a lot of mystery room, because, according to him in this kind of novel the society is well described (l think high society, surely not brick layers or plumbers society.) Reading a few customers review in on line bookshop, I noticed it is a marmite novel. The one who didn't like it, stated there are too many characters and you can't follow them all, the ones who loved it, stated any characters has his reason to be. I'm at page 70, out of 500 and I can't say much, only I like the writing. l read on the blurb, so it isn't spoiler, that Evelyn has been murdered hundreds of times, and each day Aiden Bishop is too late to save her, every time the days begun again, Aiden wakes in the body of a different character, and someone is desperate to stop him ever escaping Blackeath, (the mansion where the story is set). I'm not sure if I will read it out, because I don't appeal to me this fact that every day the main character wake up in a different body., didn't read the blurb because I bought because the title elicited me. I will give it another 100 pages try, and if I am not hooked, I throw it away.
