The Hanging by Lotte Hammer: A short review of sorts…

As you know, I had been reading The Hanging, and I could not wait for it to be finished!

I had written a blog about it already, called Unreadable (surprise surprise) and I stick with that description!

I have never been so happy so see the end of a book before! I don’t even know where to start with this, it was one of the worst books I have ever read.

The plot was completely disjointed, and it literally didn’t make any sense until the last few chapters and even then, it was still a terrible conclusion!

The characters were badly developed and I found it difficult to form any sort of relationship with them which in turn makes it impossible for me to care what is happening to them!

The ending was an extreme anticlimax and just followed in the same disappointing vein as the rest of the story! I rated it one star on Goodreads and to be honest, even that is one star too many!

My advice- avoid this book completely!!!



Have you ever got a book and thought “yeah, this will be a good one!”? I know I have! Many times!

I’m currently reading “The Hanging” by Lotte Hammer, and to be honest, I wish I wasn’t! It is terrible! I’m not a quitter when it comes to books usually, I can count on one hand the amount of books I’ve started to read then given up on,  but this book is driving me mad!

Nothing of note has happened, except the aforementioned hanging! I keep waiting for the story to improve but no joy! I hate the thoughts of having to continue reading!

However, I have challenged myself to read 100 books this year, so I feel I cant give up!

Has this ever happened to you???
