“Paper Quake,” by Kathryn Reiss

“Paper Quake,” by Kathryn Reiss is a mystifying book with a highly complex plot.

Book Cover Art for Paper Quake by Kathryn ReissThe adventure begins when Violet and her two sisters discover an old letter in a crack in the wall of a building their parents bought to use as a shop. Strangely enough, the letter appears to be addressed to Violet, although it is certain the letter is many decades old. Soon scraps of letters and diary pages are turning up everywhere Violet goes. All of them seem to be either to Violet are about Violet.

As Violet and her sisters try to decipher the hidden messages and find out more about what they mean they discover a historical parallel that forebodes woe. Not only do the messages hint about a possible murder but they refer to a historical earthquake, while a string of earthquakes rattle present day San Francisco.

I enjoyed “Paper Quake” although its plot was a little weird. Gradually, though, Kathryn Reiss clears away the twists and turns until the books ultimate climax can be revealed. “Paper Quake” is an intriguing book, if a little bit strange.

Confusing and stupid, might as well read a book in a foreign language. Same thing, confusing and not well put together
