Book Review – Escapement by Rene Gutteridge

Escapement (7 Hours series)Escapement by Rene Gutteridge
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The interesting thing about this multi-author series is that with each new book you get an entirely different experience. Escapement was a particularly unique read for me. The chatty first-person narrative bordered on breaking the fourth wall at times, but somehow really suit the character. This book had quite a unique tone to it, almost like a black comedy.

In most of the 7 hours books that I have read, the character chooses to go back and re-live a time from their past, in order to correct something. This book took a different tack. The protagonist chose to continue his life for another 7 hours. How did he choose to spend those hours? Well I’m not going to give it away but it’s really interesting.

Escapement was an entertaining and thoughtful read. I look forward to continuing this series.
