Instead of reading my usual genre of mystery books, I read a different type of mystery.

I am sorry to say, I don’t like it.

Acceptable Risk by Robin Cook didn’t receive any awards nor on the Best Seller’s list. I can see why. I don’t like his style of writing, the characters are not consistent, the girl falls for losers, there is unnecessary drama with her parents that has nothing to do with the story. The plot tries to show an insecure girl with issues become more confident and mature. But it’s not convincing and cheesy. I felt no sympathy for her.

The only interesting part of the book is it’s attempted scientific explanation of the Salem witch trials. The whole book was rather ridiculous though. I skimmed through it just to get to the end. It’s a good thing I didn’t waste too much time on this book.
