The Language of Dying by Sarah Pinborough
4.5

“People so often try and make themselves look good when they lie. That, however, should never be the point. The point should be to distract from the truth. Whether you look good or not is irrelevant. All that matters is that you sound believable.” In 13 Minutes, Sarah Pinborough relocates the Whodunnit thriller to the […]

With a title like The Death House, you’d be forgiven for thinking this was one of those gory shlock horrors written towards the end of the twentieth century. Unusually for this site, it’s not a fantasy novel, either. What it is, though, is something remarkable. Author Sarah Pinborough has set her story in an unspecified […]

The Language of Dying by Sarah Pinborough

In my opinion, Sarah Pinborough is one of the UK’s most talented authors writing in the fantasy genre today. Not only does Sarah release an incredible amount of books per year (I believe she has hit double figures since 2010; so more than 3 a year since then), but her work is so diverse that […]

Both have a similar core story, wicked stepmother, distant father, girl dreaming of something better. All the elements are there, but as with Poison, […]
