READ MY BOOK REVIEW
Twenty-Seven Minutes is a slow burn mystery/drama novel about coping with tragedy, living with deep seated regret, and finding out the truth. I’ll admit, I went into it thinking it would be a twisted thriller and while there is a good twist at the end, it’s not a thriller in any way. Sure, there’s a mystery, that’s what the entire story is centered around (what happened in those 27 minutes that it took for the victim’s brother to call the police) but I think the mystery takes a back seat to these characters mental health. Normally I love books like this, but I feel like I need to be prepared for them. I don’t always want to read books that deal with tragedy at its core, and I felt like that was THIS book. Despite it all, this is a well written novel and the fact that the author included multiple POV’s and a decent twist made it interesting enough to read it from beginning to end.
