The Dry (Aaron Falk #1) Reviews

  • j e w e l s [Books Bejeweled]

    I blame Aaron Falk. He just made me add a new shelf on Goodreads. Series. You see, I don't like book series. With a few exceptional characters preceding Aaron Falk (Harry Potter, Christian Grey, Edward Cullen, Kinsey Milhone) have I read an entire series. It's just too much of a commitment and then I feel guilty if I miss a book in the series. I will not be missing any book that Aaron Falk is in. Ever. No way, no worries, mate.

    I am so late to THE DRY party that I almost didn't read it. Finally,

    I know it's early days, but I have a feeling this will be a top read of 2017 for me; I'll go as far as saying if I had read it last year it would have been in my top 2016 reads. The writing is excellent, the pacing was quick with fully fleshed characters, and the ending was satisfying without being too cut and dry. Half the fun of this story is, even if you guess at the who, you probably won't guess the why until it's revealed. This was a perfect example of a book being extremely dark and terrif ...more

    This one's a stunner!

    Kiewarra near Melbourne Australia is in the midst of a severe drought. The ground is hard and cracked, plants are dead and brown, and the river is bone dry. The residents are all under stress economically. When a farmer, Luke Hadler, appears to have killed his wife and child and then committed suicide, the powder keg is ready.

    Aaron Falk, a federal police officer in Melbourne, receives a note that draws him back to the town he left twenty years ago. "Luke lied. You lied. Be a

    "El Nino" refers to "the little boy", so named because the pool of warm water in the Pacific near South America is often at the warmest around Christmas.

    10★! Superb!

    There isn’t a thing I’d change about this debut novel from talented Aussie author Jane Harper. The Victorian rural town of Kiewarra is suffocating under the oppression of heat and prolonged drought. While some farmers and shopkeepers are still clutching at small straws of hope, others have walked off or sold out to foreign investors.

    Then, a murder/suicide is discovered. It’s not the first in desperate country Australia, and the Hadlers were struggling. Luke Hadler has apparently sh

    Wow, this was really a great book! I love it when books which are hyped actually live up to the praise they're getting, and Jane Harper's The Dry definitely did.

    This book had everything—great writing, a terrifically evocative setting (I felt hot every time I read it, and it wasn't just because I'm running a fever, and I kept expecting everyone I came into contact with to speak with an Australian accent), interesting character development, and lots of twists and turns. It's amazing to think tha



    Harper really did her best to keep you guessing, although that didn't stop me from suspecting nearly everyone at one point. "Wait, you seem sympathetic? You did it," I thought. But while I wasn't completely surprised by the way she resolved the story, I still was surprised at the motivation behind it until the very end. And there was one revelation about the second mystery that baffled me, so I'm going to need to reach out to someone else who has read the book to see if I understood the plot correctly.

    All told, this is a tremendously suspenseful, exceptionally well-written book that really blew me away. Lately I've been reading crime novels that have been more novel than crime, which hasn't been a bad thing, but The Dry was really a crime novel. If this is Harper's debut, I can't wait to see what comes next, because she hit a homer with this one!!

    I was drawn to this arid Australian crime thriller by a desert storm of five-star reviews, not to mention the fact that this was the Sunday Times Crime Book of the Year.

    Hmmm…

    Fold his arms and sighs.

    I’m not saying that this was a bad book … it was OK … though the storyline (for me) was flat, improbable, slow-paced and bereft of suspense.

    Apart from that, it was fine!
