A darkly humorous thriller.
A Watched Pot was a devilishly dark and humours read, which made me chuckle and really drew me in.
The most rewarding reads are those ones that slowly drip feed all the key information into the story beyond your realisation that it’s going to be significant later in the story. A Watched Pot did exactly that. It was a clever narrative and really easy to read. It may have only been short but I really got involved in it. The twist at the end was great. I won’t say too much more on this!
The only way it could have been better is if the writing was stronger in places. I noticed a couple of errors, but it didn’t take away from the read itself, which is why this is still a 4 star review.
I reviewed A Watched Pot after the author provided me with a free ecopy.
**** (4 stars)
