Today I’m sharing my review for 337 by M. Jonathan Lee as part of the huge book blitz to celebrate the books release today. Thanks to Love Books Tours and Hideaway Fall for the invite and gifted copy of the book.
Samual Darte is still effected by his mother’s leaving when he was young. His brother Tom came across a note along with her wedding ring saying she was leaving their father and now Sam is in his 30’s and still living in the childhood home, he’s haunted by memories of his mum and is always wondering what happened to her.
It’s clear that Sams life has been overshadowed by his mums leaving and when he finds out his Gramma is dying he hopes he can maybe find the answers he’s been looking for before it’s too late.
The author has done a fantastic job in writing this story, it’s not fast paced but it really draws you in and has elements of mystery that really gets you thinking with red herrings scattered throughout. Its a novel that seems to really pull you in and whether Sam was sitting with his Gramma or at home, I felt like I was right there beside him feeling all his emotions along with him.
337 is a fabulous book and I was totally hooked, it has a sort of calmness about it but is just fantastically written.
I read the hardback copy which has a double-ended upside-down opening so you can start the book at either end (this feature is available in books ordered in hard copy from UK booksellers only) and not only is it unusual it highlights the fact that not everything is as it seems. Whichever edition you pick up though I can guarantee you’ll be hooked.
My names Dee-Cee, I’m a mum in my 30’s and I’m obsessed with reading. From an early age reading became a passion, but after a family tragedy back in 2014 my love of books has grown and it gives me an escape from grief and takes me into another world. I love Crime, Psychological thrillers, anything with a murder really. I leave reviews on my blog, Amazon UK, .com, Goodreads and Netgalley.
