Review: The Plot by Jean Hanff Korelitz is here. First, I want to thank Celadon Books for sending me a free copy of The Plot. It was in a custom box with information from the author! I loved it!
So what is The Plot about?
It centers around Jacob Finch Bonner, aka Jake. He published a successful first novel, but over the years, he has fallen from fame. No longer does he publish books. Instead, he is teaching a third-rate MFA program. It isn’t until an arrogant student, Evan Parker, shows up with a novel concept that Jake thinks sounds fantastic he starts to realize how far he has fallen from his dreams. He prepares to watch Evan rise to fame with a novel that is sure to become a bestseller. However, when Evan unexpectedly dies, never publishing the book, Jake decides to change his fate.
Jake steals the novel and attaches his name to it. Years later, Jake is a wealthy published author known all over the world. He is enjoying the high life of being a successful author, never once looking back. But he has no choice but to look back when an email arrives declaring Jake to be a thief. Now, everything Jake stole is in jeopardy. Did Evan steal the novel from someone else? Did Evan never die? Jake is forced to do his own investigation to save everything he has…or stole.
This novel was a great read. I read this book in two days without stopping. The twists and turns Korelitz wrote were pitch-perfect. I enjoyed the story being told from Jake’s perspective too. I do wish the cover has a bit more colorful, but you can see it is a cover within a cover. After I read it, I liked the cover more because it relates to the actual storyline. This will not be my last book by Jean Hanff Korelitz. I’m so glad Caledon sent me this suspense novel. It is unlike any others I have read with original twists and an original plot!
I have read so many thrillers and to find one that is different makes it that much better!
I give this book 4.5 stars!
