Fickle - Peter Manus I know they say you should never judge a book by its cover but I'll be honest- I do. Quite frequently, in fact. This book was no exception in that sense. Although the cover wasn't extremely exciting, there was something about the title, "Fickle, " and the fact that this is one of my favorite genres - mystery, that intrigued me enough to check out the synopsis and decide to read this book. I've never before read anything by Peter Manus, in fact I believe this is actually his debut novel but I was certainly impressed by him and will look forward to, hopefully, reading his future publications. This was a book unlike anything I've ever read before and it was so creative and so unique in the way he created the format of the story, set up as different blog posts and comments with characters consisting of the blogging community. How very cool! Being an avid blogger myself, and a huge fan and followers of other blogs, I could easily relate to, and appreciate, this format and I have a lot of respect for Peter Manus because he was able to create such a compelling and very complex novel, within the limits of blog posts- very impressive and nicely done.

This story is about a woman who is known in the blogging community as "fickle" who witnesses what appears to be a suicide at a Boston subway and there is suspicion around her connection, if any, with the deceased and weather or not she is in anyway responsible for the untimely death. I don't want to give much more away then that but I will say this is a very complex novel with a lot of layers and depth. I really enjoyed this book and I wasn't sure that I was going to, considering the format, but again, it was wonderfully executed and I give it a four out of five star rating and highly recommend it.

I received an ARC of Fickle from Netgalley in exchange for an honest, unbiased, review.
