RBRC: The Shape of Snakes by Minette Walters

My book for the November Recycled Book Reading Challenge is The Shape of Snakes by Minette Walters.

I found this to be a great novel. Well written and the attention to detail as far as reports, articles, letters, and such added a necessary level to the mystery.  The plot is outstanding and the topic tackled mental illness and racism very well.

There are many novels and movies which try to draw an adequate picture of racism, but they somehow manage to be quite redundant at times. Predictable, if you will. The Shape of Snakes is not such a story. You will be drawn into this story. This is one of those reads that I found it difficult to put down.

This book was actually given to me last Christmas. I can only assume that it was found in perfect condition in a flea market, because english language books are quite expensive in the bookstores. Not to mention, there are not so many available. So, I thought it fitting that I could use it as a good book for this months RBRC.
