The Hypnotist

Ks at where life can take you when your expectations are greatOfficially endorsed by Amnesty International The Hypnotist was hailed by The Bookseller in their ‘Ones to Watch’ section as ‘gripping compelling storytelling with a powerful anti racist message’. I am not able to give this book a rating as I didn t finish it However from the parts I did read I can tell you It is well written Fx I sometimes struggle when writers decide to write out drawls and accents but in this book it was just alright The Main Characters are all really interesting Every one from the Caucasian Irish Neurology Professor to the Black Orphan teenager and the Mute Native American girl Together they all have interesting back stories and I really liked all three of them The story is set in the 60 s and features the fight against racism I just couldn t read it The scenes made me uncomfortable As in they were hard to read without getting too affected Basically I m one of those people who lives through all the slightly scary things by saying It s not real it s just fiction But with this book I couldn t do that In fact the few scenes I did read wasn t hard to imagine happening right now todaySo do I recommend this book Definitely It s been said to be great for people who liked The Book Thief Haven t read that yet so I wouldn t knowI will most likely attempt to read this another time

    I think this probably could have been a good story but it's so badly written It's disjointed and sloppy It even changes tense for a chapter The lessons it seeks to teach are very heavy handed and all it does is cheapen the writing Still my biggest problem is Jack Not only is he annoying as hell but the book beats you over the head with his Irishness but it's clear that very little research was done on Ireland If you can't accur
