In the Dark - Mark Billingham

Some things are best left in the dark, this book is one of them...


I really disliked this book. I was looking forward to reading this one, but it disappointed me to a point in which I'm probably never going to touch a book by Mark Billingham again. (They say first impressions are very important, with writers this is exactly the same)

I didn't really liked the story, it was very unrealistic and uninteresting. And, - I don't know whether or not this has to do with the translation - but the writing style was simply painful. Full of apparently cool words, gangsta style, showing how streetwise I am kind of writing style. I hated it. Took me about two months to finish this book.


Note: I read a Dutch translation of this book
