WRITE A REVIEW

Totally brilliant!

5

This is an absolutely brilliant book, a tour de force by a highly accomplished writer. Anthony Horowitz' books, whether for adults or kids, are always beautifully-written and gripping, but this one is truly something very special. Both an exciting and clever crime novel and an absorbing, surprising and funny evocation of the creative process and interaction between author and characters, this book takes many risks which are brilliantly pulled off. In The Word is Murder, Anthony is himself a character in his own book, being bossed around by his fictional character, the detective Hawthorne, in the investigation of a murder. What's amazing is how well the book works on all levels, both as a page-turner and a thought-provoking experiment. Highly recommended!
