The Final Straw

The Final Straw - Ted Tayler Does the premise make sense and is it engaging? The premise was engaging and held my interest but I’m not sure I fully understand Colin Bailey and his motivations. It was easy to understand Karen and Sue but Colin was a puzzle and it felt like he had more than revenge on his mind.

What did you think about the dialogue? It was colloquial and easy to understand. There wasn’t too much dialogue because the story read like it was studying / analysing Colin’s mind. I wonder if there’s going to be sequel where Colin’s relationships are explained from a different perspective? I highly recommend this book but it did feel as if some more resolution was needed for Colin.

Which characters do you particularly admire or dislike? I’m still not decided about Sue. The scene where she flirts with Colin after Eric’s funeral, it was weird. In all fairness, she did surprise me more than once in the book but she’s definitely not my favourite character in the story.
