Book Review – White Rabbit, Red Wolf by Tom Pollock

white rabbit red wolfPeter Blankman is afraid of everything and must confront unimaginable terror when his mother is attacked.

Armed only with his extraordinary analytical skills, Peter may just discover that his biggest weakness is his greatest strength.

What did I just read? Can I trust anything? Am I even me??

Brilliantly done book that will seriously mess with your mind.

I can’t even put into words how fantastically well thought out this book is.  Everything about it will make you reconsider your life, what you already read and where the rest of the book could go.  And then you will be wrong. About everything. Especially your life 😉

Peter is a fab main character – I really felt for him throughout.  Especially as he so often had no idea what was going on and every time he found something out it up ended his world view, but he kept on going regardless.

I also really enjoyed Bel, though I don’t want to spoil anything by sharing why.  In places she is very hard to like, but I found her character compelling.

And the whole concept is seriously brilliant.  Honestly, Tom must be some sort of genius to have come up with this, and made it make sense.

Buy this. Read this. Wonder if everything is a lie.


Buy White Rabbit, Red Wolf from Amazon UK.
