Hello friends, I’m here with a review of 337 by M Jonathan Lee, this was an ARC that I very kindly received from NetGalley and BooksGoSocial – so thank you to them!
Overall rating – 5 out of 5 stars.
This is my second book by this author, and let me say I was really pleasantly surprised by this book, it was so good.
I found 337 very easy to read and get caught up in the storyline, I was completely sucked in by this book and the need to know what was going on. The author does a really good job of slowly building the suspense and creating this sense of foreboding that just grabs you and compels you to continue reading.
I think in one of my notes for this book I described it as a slow burn that keeps dropping these little breadcrumbs, like Hansel and Gretel, to keep you interested in the story. And this approach definitely worked.
The way 337 is written is what I got the most enjoyment from in this book. It was as if Sam was word vomiting onto the page, we see everything through Sam’s eyes and it kind of flits between different events and times, filling in those gaps and adding tonnes of value to the story.
The attention to detail within this book was absolutely INSANE.
The characters weren’t really expanded upon, but I feel this actually was a positive of the book, because it really felt like we were Sam, and seeing the world through his eyes only.
Despite the story only really centring on Sam and his Grandma it was packed full of plot and had plenty enough to keep us on the edge of our seat and interested.
I had goosebumps when I finished this book, it felt so poignant and I loved how everything fell into place in the end, it felt very much like fate. I don’t want to give too much away but I just closed this book and felt very fulfilled.
On the whole, I really enjoyed 337 by M Jonathan Lee.
Until next time, Em xxx
