Hey fellow bookworms, as usual I have a new book discovery to get into your radar… and it’s a perfect fit for thos ewho like a little supernatural twis to their thrillers… so, let’s cut the chit chat short and get to the review..
The Archivist by V. S. Nelson
I thought I had an idea of what this book was about when I was first asked to write a review.. And that cover helped a lot to that misconception .. it is creepy don’t you think? but it works!
I was wrong in the best way. I thought I was getting a paranormal thriller that would be entertaining to read but I got so much more.. A deeper question of what would you do if you could linger more after death? Realizing that we might leave behind so much more than we ever thought.. and the self reflection of being used to being cold and detached once he finally starts letting people in..
It was a very interesting take on a thriller set in the afterlife. The plot is the main focus but it doesn’t leave out the characters’ growth.. Finding that balance isn’t easy.
I did get a bit confused at first when the POV changed, but it didn’t take away from the overall message of the story.
If you are looking for a book that will make you think as well as entertain you.. pick this one up.
