Blog tour: Suicide Thursday

Welcome to the blog tour for Suicide Thursday by Will Carver!

More about the book…

Eli Hagin can’t finish anything.

He hates his job, but can’t seem to quit. He doesn’t want to be with his girlfriend, but doesn’t know how end things with her, either. Eli wants to write a novel, but he’s never taken a story beyond the first chapter.

Eli also has trouble separating reality from fiction. When his best friend kills himself, Eli is motivated, for the first time in his life, to finally end something himself, just as Mike did...

Except sessions with his therapist suggest that Eli’s most recent ‘first chapters’ are not as fictitious as he had intended... and a series of text messages that Mike received before his death point to something much, much darker...

More about the author…

Will Carver is the international bestselling author of the January David series and the critically acclaimed, mind-blowingly original Detective Pace series that includes Good Samaritans (2018), Nothing Important Happened Today (2019) and Hinton Hollow Death Trip (2020), all of which were ebook bestsellers and selected as books of the year in the mainstream international press. Nothing Important Happened Today was longlisted for the Goldsboro Glass Bell Award 2020 and Theakston’s Old Peculier Crime Novel of the Year. Hinton Hollow Death Trip was longlisted for Guardian Not the Booker Prize, and was followed by three standalone literary thrillers, The Beresford, Psychopaths Anonymous (both optioned for TV) and The Daves Next Door. He lives in Reading with his family.

My impressions…

What a ride! Having heard of the uniqueness of Will Carver’s books I wasn’t sure what to expect… and after reading Suicide Thursday I can’t stop thinking about it and how I need to read another book by this incredible author. Soon. 

Twisty and darkly humorous, this story is told by multiple narrators, and I honestly couldn’t pick which character I liked the least as they were all pretty much unlikeable. Far from this being a criticism, I loved it as it made for a great reading experience!

Three words to describe it. Unique. Dark. Thought-provoking.

Do I like the cover? Yes, I love it!

Have I read any other books by the same author? No. And yes, I am ashamed of it. Will Carver has been on my radar for what feels like a lifetime, and I can’t explain why I’ve waited this long to start reading his books. Clearly, now I am not going to stop!
