    Lethal White, the 4th volume in Cormoran Strike series, kept me at the edge of the seat/bed during the past 4 days. I think it is the best so far although some parts could have been trimmed by the editor. It starts to resemble the Harry Potter series, with each book longer and longer. If this one has 650 pages I hope the next will not have 800 or more. Rowling talent as a storyteller in so I was never bored but still, the plot could have been a b...

    “It was a glorious thing, to be given hope when all had seemed lost.”I hate it when they change cover designs mid-series. I really do. You bought three books that find neatly on your shelves and they all sit there looking pretty and THEN comes the new guy with a new outfit and it's just. not. right. It's just as much a crime as showing up in a green shirt on a Wednesday when you're supposed to wear pink.I'm also blaming the cover for the firs...

    650 PAGES IS TOO MANY PAGES FOR A MYSTERY NOVEL. That being said, JKR puts together a damn good mystery and I loved all of the actual mystery parts of this story. She is the *best* at creating great and interesting and fun characters. (More Barclay in the next book, kthnx)However, I think that JKR is pretty terrible at writing romance (don't @ me) and I very, very, very much do not love the whole Robin/Strike pairing and everything surrounding th...

    JK Rowling gives us her trademark intricate, tightly plotted, and complex crime fiction in this, the fourth of her engrossing Cormoran Strike series, set amidst the heady and euphoric background of the surprisingly successful 2012 London Olympics. It begins where Career of Evil left off, at Robin Ellacott's disastrous wedding to the sullen and resentful Matthew, with Robin over the moon at being reinstated at Strike's detective agency as partner....

    confession: there are times when i feel like i am an unreliable rater/reviewer. j.k. rowling practically gave me my childhood, so i feel like the least i could do to thank her is by reading and giving all of her books 5 stars. to say im biased would be an understatement. but in the case of this book, i can say, with good conscience, it deserves all 5 of those stars.i was worried when JKR first began writing for adults, especially under the crime/...

    As I decided to read this book and only this one during the past week, it dawned upon me that indeed, this book has been written by Robert Galbraith, and it's J.K. Rowling who is the ghostly figure here. I don't fear being ostracized for my rating. But most of my friends have given this book higher ratings than me.The denouement was not the balm that could assuage the page upon page of nothingness. The murderer's identity was moot. The damage was...

    This was an okay crime story, but as I was reading “Lethal White” I couldn’t help but be frustrated by the fact that this book was TOO LONG! 600+ pages to tell a crime story is too long when the plot is so dense and the different storylines so intricate. Interwoven with that we get the story of Robin’s and Strike’s continued partnership which was another thing that quite frustrated me: This book was a case of dumb decision-making based ...

    Robert Galbraith’s Cormoran Strike is in no doubt my favorite private eye series. I love Strike’s relationship with his now parter, Robin Ellacott. The two work so well together. I started the series with an audiobook and have continued to do so. The narrator’s voice is striking and perfect for Cormoran’s tough guy persona. Strike likes intelligent women and treats them as his equal. Always a wonderful thing to come upon in a book. There ...

    This book really irritated me. The mysteries, involving blackmail and a possibly strangled child, are not very compelling until the last quarter of the book. There's an info dump in the last two chapters that sums everything up. However, my major problem is that the book is mostly filler, not mystery. That might be ok if I were really invested in the Strike/Robin relationship (or non-relationship), but I'm not. That whole will they or won't they ...

    I can't even remember the last time I was so impatient for the next book in a series to be released.

    After I finished, "Career of Evil," I could hardly wait for this next story. Perhaps my hopes and expectations were too high, as I found this disjointed and lots less than anticipated. I won't be so anxious for the next in this series if there is another. If there isn't, I won't mind that so much either. 2 of 10 stars

    Liked and disliked it in equal measure. I am tired of Robin and Matthew as a dysfunctional couple. At book four it feels like the author is milking a dead horse. A white horse, the book is infested with them. One more won't make any difference.

    4 stars right on the nose. It is another decent mystery very much in the same vein as the previous Strike novels. If you have read those you know exactly what to expect here.Lots of characters: Galbraith (Rowling) likes to fill her mysteries with characters. If you are a person that is easily confused if there are lots of characters, proceed with caution. I definitely have to stop and think about who is who from time to time.A convoluted mystery:...

    This should have been a magnificent book, but in the end I am giving it four stars and saying it was very good indeed. The one star deduction is for the way the book began. At first it was just so slow - not a lot happened and Robin's endless monologues about whether she loved him or not ( and there are two possible hims there) went on and on. And on.Then we started to get into the meat of the story and crimes were committed, people went undercov...

    I really love the Cormoran Strike series. That is why I am so excited for the next book in the series. Lethal White has been the longest we have to wait so far.To satiate my excitement I have created fan-made covers for both US and UK Editions.US EditionUK Edition

    UPD: This is how I find out?! From a newsletter on Bookdepository?!! Release date: 18th September 2018. Could I BE any more excited??Yes, I'm stooping that low! I'm using GIFs now because there are no words to express how much I'm waiting for this book, I need more of Robin and Cormoran and their unusual relationship. I'm sure that so many things are going to go down in the next one because I can't stand suspense any longer... aaaah!

    This novel I just liked, and only liked, and to be honest, I struggled to finish it ... I have been thinking why I did not enjoy Lethal White as much as the previous books in the series, and in my case, it was its length & the plot itself. I enjoy long reads, but this novel seems to have too many pages, and good editing might make it a truly thrilling read. The mystery that Cormoran and Robin want to solve this time was not engaging for me either...

    Oooh... I waited for this book to be out with such anticipation! Dropped my other reads to get through this.Overall, it turned out to be a let down. I expected a compete blowmybrainsout read, but this was just an OK read at best.It starts with Robin's wedding... The wedding part was tense enough and got me absorbed in the book right away. But once that fizzled out, the whole Strike-Robin story took a dip down and had me rather annoyed with the pa...

That defeats the purpose.Themes for Cormoran:- Getting the agency stable financially -->This leads him to take on a case that is lucrative instead of the usual ones guided by his morals.--->The case involves digging up dirt on a politician who is beloved by the people.-Distracting himself with a comfo...

    3.5 starsThis book gets 5 stars for the personal/professional relationship updates between Robin and Cormoran, but only gets 2 stars for the 'murder mystery' presented in this book. I *loved* seeing all the extra page time that Robin and Cormoran finally get in regards to their individual personal lives (warning: the slow burn still burns slowly). In fact, the book is practically at the half way mark before anyone even gets murdered. Loved it! Bu...

    I’m not a big Harry potter fan and though have seen all the films I’ve yet to turn a page of any of the books. I’m just not into magic spells and all that malarkey. But I do admire the cleverness J. K. Rowling shows in developing a set of stories – a whole world, in fact – that has gripped so many people. My son is one of them; he’s also the reason I’ve watched the films - and played the spin-off video games too. But all of that asi...

    I have been very stingy with 5 star rating recently. But this book absolutely deserves to be rated 5 stars. I love this series and it just keeps getting better and better. If you love great murder mysteries with very interesting and intriguing characters, look no further. You don’t have to have read any of the other books in the series to enjoy this book, although I would highly recommend it. This will be in the running as one of the best books...

    If you're into stuff like this, you can read the full review.Bloated: "Lethal White" by Robert GalbraithI couldn't finish Harry Potter. It read to me like an amateur college project: it wasn't story telling, it was paint-by-number narration. It goes to show that if you tap into the right market at the right time then you're going to make a buck or two regardless of any skill or talent. With Harry Potter the first book was tightly edited, but they...
