I read the first book by Robert Galbraith, The Cuckoo's Calling (Cormoran Strike) not long after it came out. I did know when I read it that the author is actually J.K.Rowling (the author of the Harry Potter series). I loved it from the first page. The main character is a guy named Cormoran Strike and he's as unique as his name. He had a very colorful family tree and he's Afghan war vet who's lost part of his right leg. The thing that really makes this guy special is his way of describing his thoughts and perceptions of others. He's thinking exactly what we all think, but he shares it in a way that I find myself laughing out loud! I love the supporting characters as well and find them interesting, but Cormoran is wonderful!
This week I've been reading the second book in the series about him. It's called The Silkworm (A Cormoran Strike Novel) and it is rather graphic and has imagery not for the weak of stomach. It is a wonderfully told story of the murder of a very eccentric author and of course, Cormoran is trying to find the killer. There are plenty of adventures and mishaps along the way, but I have no doubt he's going to save the day! I still have almost 100 pages left to read. I just couldn't wait to share this book, If you're looking for a good read, you should seriously consider it!
I see that the third book in the series Career of Evil (Cormoran Strike Novels) is out and I will definitely be reading it soon. I think Cormoran has lots of adventures ahead of him and I can't wait to find out what kind of trouble he gets into...and out of!
