April’s Book Club Pick: A Debut Novel Set on the Brooding.
The ending of “Disappearing Earth” ignites an immediate desire to reread the chapters leading up to it: incidents and characters that seemed trivial acquire new meanings. The novel’s title.
Disappearing Earth transported me to a world that I barely knew existed, the Kamchatka Peninsula in Russia. The setting, like the painting on the cover, is vivid and memorable.

We have a scene where Holmes detects a man's character from the hat he wears (I believe that's cribbed from 'The Blue Carbuncle'), we have in-joke references to Holmes's original first name, and at least two delightful puns relating to the original short story titles (and a poorer one regarding The Hound Called Baskerville). To the adult checking this book out, whether for review purpose, or.
The Disappearing Man was his first foray into the historical fiction genre and it does not disappoint. Trying to keep interest in a story where the main character spends a bulk of the book alone in a box would provide an insurmountable challenge to a lesser author, but Peterson is able to weave in flashbacks, suspense, and juuust the right amount of detail to keep the reader turning the pages.

Book Review. Disappearing Earth. Rating: I’ve said it before, but it bears repeating. The more glowing reviews a book gets pre-pub, the higher the expectation. Disappearing Earth is the latest.
