Book Review: The Silkworm (Cormoran Strike, #2) by Robert Galbraith
It took me a bit to get into the second installment of the Cormoran Strike book series, but once I got a bit into The Silkworm, it moved along quite well but could've been a bit shorter. I ended up really enjoying it despite the length, and I thought it was written better than the first book in as that it wasn't quite as predictable as The Cuckoo's Calling (Cormoran Strike, #1).
J.K. Rowling does a great job with describing the characters, so much so that I was immediately able to picture them in my mind. I pictured the main character, Cormoran Strike, as actor and former football player Bob Golic and the assistant Robin as actress Kate Botsworth. I love the fact that Strike's assistant Robin had some great character development, and I kind of hopes she breaks it off with her fiance and ends up with Strike as a husband.
I gave The Silkworm (Cormoran Strike, #2) by Robert Galbraith four out of five stars for the reasons mentioned above. If you enjoyed this book, you may like The Shadow of the Wind (The Cemetery of Forgotten Books, #1) by Carlos Ruiz Zafón.
