    Cleverest book I've read in years

    Taking the classic country house murder ingredients, Stuart Turton has made a wholly new thing. The reader not only discovers the elements of the murder as the story unfolds but also the deeper and darker secrets of who the victims and sleuths are. Brilliant and ground-breaking.

    A fine and head-muddling mystery

    A fine and head-muddling twist on your good old murder mystery. It has an outstanding plot. It has hints and clues dropped by the author that you still can’t make heads or tails of. For example, I was so sure the title “7 ½ Deaths” is a dead giveaway (pun intended), but I was wrong. What, Evelyn dies 7.5 times? Or is it our hero Aidan fails 7 times and almost succeeds on the 8th time? I still couldn’t figure it out even when I was 70% through. The author carefully crafted twists and turns that are sure to keep readers guessing. Reading Stuart Turton’s writing, I get the feeling that every sentence is precise, in the sense that it’s doing what it’s supposed to do. Not a word was wasted, every word serves a purpose. There is no wishy-washy sentences or clichès that fills up the paragraphs. Stuart Turton utilises personification techniques liberally in his work. The effect it has is astonishing – readers get a precise and immersive setting where they can lose themselves. One thing that’s highlighted in every review ever for this book is the absence of emotional engagement with readers. To be perfectly honest, I didn’t notice it until after I’ve finished the book and read reviews because I was wholly engrossed in the convoluted mystery. However, I think emotional engagement with readers is a very important thing to establish but this book is an exception. It’s such a complex, time-restrained conundrum that the readers are just holding their breaths for that final reveal.
