Book Review: The Canary List by Sigmund Brouwer

The Canary List: A NovelThe Canary List: A Novel by Sigmund Brouwer

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Is there a Witch-Vatican-genetic freak conspiracy out there? According to this book, yes. And, well, that's about it. With a solid start and a weak finish, The Canary List is middlin' at best. (Why three stars then? Because it was well-ish written, and that gets three stars, no matter what.) I happen to think conspiracy theory books have to be exceptionally well written, otherwise the author comes off looking like a kook, and often drags the reader with him. This book is just well enough written not to drag the reader down, and leave us questioning the author.

And, well, I can't say much else without giving away key plot points, so I won't. If you like conspiracy theories and don't much care for the Vatican, this book is for you. It's well enough written to carry you along. If you don't, you probably won't.

I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review. Clearly, they did not pay me to write a good one.
