REVIEW: Black Chalk

“The true gambler plays for the thrill, the sheer ecstasy of taking part.”


This was the kind of book where it kept me reading because I was waiting and expecting it all to suddenly get good. It wasn’t a bad read at all, but it lacked depth in characters and most importantly, in the climax.

It constantly teased at what could happen and who ends up being the *one* and it’s a case of raising expectations too high so that nothing will ever be good or clever enough. Also, I was expecting much more daring ‘consequences’ seen as it’s claimed to be a thriller – half of the stuff mentioned the characters hugely overreacted to.

Had the characters been more developed and expectations kept low it could have been better. Nevertheless, it kept me reading and I enjoyed it somewhat.
