    Wicked brilliant! ( Yes ;) Pun intended! ) HERE COMES CORMORAN & ROBIN AGAIN! If you are respectably active on the reading community, it will be no surprise that this "Robert Galbraith" is really the mega-famous writer J.K. Rowling, author of the ultra-mega-famous book ...

    An author decides to put out a tell all book bashing some of his fellow authors and even some of the women in his life. His wife then contacts my lovely Strike to help her find him. I'd have left his arse gone but what do I know? Strike ends up finding his dead body and decides to stay...

    Re-read February 2018: Okay, so now having finished my first re-read of this book, I am so tempted to up the rating to five stars. A large portion of that desire comes from listening to the audio this time around. There?s something really satisfying about Robert Glenister?s voice n...

    The Silkworm is the tenth J.K. Rowling novel I?ve read. I believe that after ten often gargantuan novels I can make fairly accurate generalizations about her writing. And it saddens me to say that she keeps making the same mistakes. Most glaring is her treatment of female characte...

    As much as I enjoyed the first Strike book this second venture was rather a let down. What we have in "The Silkworm" are alternating chapters of the main character lamenting about the pain he is suffering from his injured leg, and his assistant Robin suffering from angst about her rela...

    Genuinely liked this book even more than the Cuckoo's Calling, which is saying something. Loved the initial dive into the main character's personal lives, loved the central mystery in this one, and honestly can't wait to keep reading this series. I am so pleasantly surprised and can't ...

    "...Writers are a savage breed, Mr. Strike. If you want life-long friendship and selfless camaraderie, join the army and learn to kill. If you want a lifetime of temporary alliances with peers who will glory in your every failure, write novels." And just like that, J.K. Rowling under ...

    Reading J.K. Rowling?s writing for adult audiences reminds me irresistibly of bumping into grade-school teachers on the street. There?s the obvious comparison, of course, which is not having to pretend that sex and crass language don?t exist anymore, realizing your former educato...

    2.5 stars - Spoilers Disappointing, it wasn't awful but it wasn't good either. It was all rather predictable and generic, I wouldn't have minded the cliches and obviousness of it all if the main characters (Strike and Robin) had stood out in some way. Sadly, they didn't. I didn't ca...

    Cormoran Strike's business is now better than afloat following his last high-profile case. When the wife of a missing writer asks for his help to find him, Strike opts to take the case even though he probably won't get a fee from the seemingly down and out woman. What appears to be a c...

    J.K Rowling releases a novel under a pseudonym? Then announces that said novels sequel is already written and will be released in 2014?? This is how I imagine she looks right now. Edit Feb 2014: We have a name, release date AND a synopsis?!?! Bloody hell! ...

    I love a good detective story and Galbraith really delivered on this one. Either she is a master of the red herring or I am an incurably gullible old sod because I was firmly convinced I knew who it was for two thirds of the book, only to have it turn out to be someone I never even con...

    "Ha, ha, ha, thou entanglest thyself in thine own work like a silkworm, John Webster" ~ The White Devil Owen Quine was the man. He was the author who thought a day was wasted if he hadn't made his readers gag at least twice, according to Jerry. Owen Quine's books was simply gory a...

    Good slow mystery is probably my favorite thing to read. The author knows about the publishing industry. Any famous author most know about it, the good, the bad and the ugly. And oh my God this story was an ugly succeed. The book is not your normal mystery novel. It has no action at al...

    There are some things that I think this series has really got going for it. It totally has that old school detective story vibe going for it along with engaging characters and settings even the plots are really pretty good. This reminds me a little of a T.V. series though where the det...

    Update 21/09/14: Rating: 4,25 stars. My overall thoughts on The Silkworm were similar to those I had about The Cuckoo's Calling. It started out pretty slow-paced (the course of the investigation requiring many descriptive parts) and for a while there was a lot of random-sounding i...

    4.5* When I finished The Silkworm two weeks ago I was planning to give it 4* for reasons that I will discuss later. I decided to upgrade my rating when I went to visit my mum and I saw the novel on the nightstand, halfway read. ?It?s really good, isn?t it?, I asked her with exc...

    I remember being in a trance after reading the first book in the series. And now I am again at the same emotional state. I don't know what makes J.K. Rowling's books so charming to the eye and mind but when you start a book of hers you get lost in it. The main characters, Cormoran and ...

    This was my first of the Cormoran Strike novels, and I now wonder why it took me so long to pick one up. It's a lot of fun (as a writer, I couldn't help "recognizing" some of the London literary types - I imagine JK greatly enjoyed exposing their various snobberies and weaknesses). The...
