They’re closing the lamb and musket by Richard Cunliffe (Book Review #931)


They’re closing the lamb and musket is a fictional tale. It is the third book by the author. The timing of the story is spread from June to September. A suburban pub is scheduled to be closed and replaced with a supermarket. The loss is significant for the community, and since it affected patrons and staff’s lives, the characters took the forfeiture personally.

Since I had not read the previous books, it was hard for me to recognize characters or have any background foundation to the storyline. I found Ricky to possess a strong personality, and his connection with friends totally made up for a great story.

Rating: 4 out of 5.

I wasn’t a big fan of the book cover or the formatting inside. The story is told from the third person narrative but written as if it was a report rather than a novel. In fact, the narration is from four alternative viewpoints. This increased the layers and depth of the story. The chapters were even divided by days and titled by numbers, and the premise was fast-paced.

If you like to read stories that embody villains, surprises, twists, and turns, you will like this book.

I recommend this book to anyone who likes to read fiction.
