The Stone Man by Luke Smitherd
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Modern day War of the Worlds.
I went into this book blind. I didn't even read the synopsis. I've heard a few things about Smitherd and thought I'd give him a go, The Stone Man seems to be his most popular book so that seemed to be a good place to start.
I listened to the audiobook edition of this piece. Firstly, I have to say, the narration was spot on. It was really easy to listen to and it pulled me in pretty quickly.
I'm not the biggest Sci-Fi fan so I wasn't sure what to expect from this, but I'm happy to say that I loved it. In fact it's one of the best books I've read this year and it's pretty much guaranteed that I'll be checking out future works from Smitherd.
I don't want to say much about the story, that's not what I do in my reviews and I think that's what the synopsis is for anyway. I'd rather just give you my opinion of the story.
And that is, don't hesitate, check it out and I guarantee you won't regret it.
