I've read at least 12 of his books but this book outshines all of them! At times I just laughed out loud. His style reminds me of early Janet Evanovich with a quick quirky story and plenty of imagination. Loved it!
I've read a lot of books by some acclaimed author's and have not read any better than Joseph Flynn. Hot Type is up there with the best. Not many author's can intertwine three stories and make them seamless like this one. In comparison John Gresham is so one dimensional he would wish he could write this well. My hat is off to Joseph Flynn. Sir, I salute you.
Flynn does a great job of building his characters so the reader cares about every one of them. The plot twists and the story within the story work well. I admit I took my time reading this Flynn novel ( as opposed to his others) but this one will be the one I chuckle over and recommend to friends as a really great read.
Another winner from Joseph Flynn. Great primary and secondary characters, totally different storyline, entertaining and fun. In fact, one of the secondary characters, Lerome, was so well done he almost eclipsed the main characters in the story, Dan & Erin. All of this action over a typewriter? Delightful!
Cleverly done, very enjoyable. Read it, you'll be glad you did.
Writers will like this one. It also encompasses a typical cop attitude regarding most felons--that most of them are stupid. Oddly enough, many felons feel the same about law enforcement. This story hangs on the premise that superstition sometimes trumps logic. Like all Flynn novels, clever and engaging. These aren't books you read a bit at a time.
Flynn is simply put, a great storyteller. Hot Type is story within a story. I am amazed of Flynn range. I thought the McGill series was great and he wrote "those" kinds of books. Now I'm convinced he can write ANYTHING. I'm hooked!
This is a most unusual novel; with more twists and turns throughout the story. What an entertaining read for an evening. I had to take a break and simply raced back to finish it. The ending was not at all what I expected.
