Original Concept, Execution A Bit Lacking
By: Tri Ardriani

Not bad for a Christie wannabe. A huge part of the answer to the mystery was a bit pushing it imho. I can't really say what it's about (besides the groundhog day trope, but that's clearly mentioned on the blurb) without giving out spoilers. It's a pretty cool book with an original concept, but the conclusion has an element that makes it feel a bit too "cheap". A huge chunk of the rating goes for the core concept and idea, and even though mystery-wise it leaves something to be desired, reading it is still an exceptional experience.

better served unknown
By: Diah

Talking about the book would spoil it, so I'll refrain from it for your own reading pleasure.

 

However, The Seven Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle reminded me of the show Doctor Who, a bit of 1234 by Paul Auster, and The Matrix. Don't ask how I came to this conclusion.

Classic English Mystery with Complex Twist
By: Dion Muflia

"Anna" was the only name our protagonist remembered when he woke up in the middle of a forest. What followed after is a mad dash to save a girl, a whole day full of fear and confusion, meeting new people, and a new task ahead of him.  Our timid main character wasn't really someone we would choose to solve a murder, but that is what he had to do in order to get out from Blackheath and its time...

loop, a place so terrible it could drive its inhabitants mad. Every night, Evelyn Hardcastle will die, and it's his duty to find the killer and bring something to proof it. But, as if it wasn't hard enough, after meeting Evelyn, he decided that it was his responsibility to solve the case while keep Evelyn alive. Stuart Turton is a big fan of Agatha Christie, and it showed in his familiar choice of a setting--an old English manor full of rich yet unhappy people, servants, and everyone in between. Everyone had a motive to kill, whether it's for money, love, or revenge. Turton realized that Christie already wrote every plot twist he can think of, so he added some elements of his own: time loop and body switch. That being said, I don't usually take a book with sci-fi elements as a plot device if I can help it, so that part doesn't impress me much. I do like the story conclusion and character development. The plot are so complex and delicate, it must be hard to draft this book and keep it neat. The mystery is gripping and the antagonists are scary. "The Footman" had that boogeyman feeling and he's really hard to beat. This book is a new experience on its own.
