Mr Mercedes by Stephen King

Mr Mercedes by Stephen King

Solid Thriller


Once again, Stephen King refuses to be pigeon-holed in a genre category. In the last few years, he’s written a long epic with a large cast of characters (Under the Dome), a time-travel love story (11/22/63), a new Dark Tower novel, a creature-filled sequel to the Shining, and now a detective-based thriller. This book does not have any supernatural elements, though some of the descriptions of gore are classic King writing.

The characters are mostly fully fleshed out, with the unfortunate exception of one female character who I felt had a lot of quirks, but didn’t feel completely real. Hopefully King will work on that character in the next book that I plan on reading at some point this year so I can remember my plot points and it all makes sense. I have had this on my Goodreads account for a as long as I have been on the site.

The plotting and pacing of this book is excellent. King seems to set it up one way, then constantly pulls the rug out from under the reader. I loved the journey, though the ending felt a little limited, with one character getting sidelined before the big finale. I do not think this is a 5-star book, mainly because it feels too much like a standard thriller (a well done one, but nothing that will make forget all the things that I have read that he has done better.) I highly recommend this book to all fans of King and all readers who enjoy a good detective thriller. I am and always be a die-hard King fan I can not wait to see how this series continues.

Genuine Fraud
Genuine Fraud I confess. I’m one of those people. I judge a book by it’s cover. Well, in a good way of course! If the cover appeals to me then I will read the blurb and see if the story appeals as well. That was the case with Genuine Fra...
