Many thanks to Jade at Whispering Stories for her wonderful and honest review of The Buddha’s Bone, which you can read on the Whispering Stories website. It was such a lovely surprise to read her review when I happened to check into Goodreads earlier today and saw it posted. You can read the reviews from Whispering Stories, as well as from other readers on The Buddha’s Bone Goodreads page.
Jade particularly liked how my novel switches between English and Japanese, as she felt it helped her imagine what it would really be like to live in Japan. She really disliked my main antagonist, Carl, which has been the case with nearly every reader so far. I’m glad my central villain is so despised!
You can follow the Whispering Stories Goodreads page for more book reviews if you have a Goodreads account. Thanks again to Jade and Whispering Buffalo for posting a fantastic review, it really means so much to me.
