Book Overview

Hailed as "breathtakingly suspenseful," Jean Hanff Korelitz's The Plot is a propulsive read about a story too good not to steal, and the writer who steals it. Jacob Finch Bonner was once a promising young novelist with a respectably published first book. Today, he's teaching in a third-rate MFA program and struggling to maintain what's left of his self-respect; he hasn't written--let alone published--anything decent in years. When Evan Parker, his...

The villain is the best part.

This was a fun read. It starts off a bit slow with the failure of Jake to become the great writer of his dreams, fizzling out after his first semi hit of a novel. He meets Evan in his class who tells him of a plot that cannot fail. So , it goes into how several years later, after Evan is dead without ever writing this book, Jake writes that novel (called Crib) and is instantly famous. But there is more to that story than Jake knew and the rest of the book gets going faster and faster as Jake tries to figure out who is threatening him and why. I am really glad there were bits to read of "The Crib" because I would have been very put out after it was so hyped up in this book. It was a lovely twisty novel and though I guessed the twist, it was still enjoyable though I did yell at Jake to open his eyes and see the truth. The villain of this novel is very smart and I really liked that person. It made the ending very good.

Loved it! BUY THIS BOOK!

I was so excited to win an early review copy of The Plot from BookishFirst. I was crossing my fingers so hard that I would win! As soon as I receive the book I drove right in. I knew I would enjoy it but I didn’t think I would have enjoyed it THIS much. I already am a huge fan of books that have to do with books, bookstores, booklovers, etc.. but this story took it to a whole new level. The story revolves around a college professor/failed novelist who has a student with a VERY good idea for a book.. possibly one of the BEST ideas to come across his desk in a long, long time. As a reader you are taken on a thrilling journey of the twist and turns of the publishing world, ownership and copyright. What does it mean to be successful? The suspense around the “theft” of a story idea had me up into the wee hours of the morning. BUY THIS BOOK! You will NOT regret it.
