You see, this is why I love Book of the Month. It helps me find new books that I otherwise missed out on. In this case, it was The Verifiers, written by Jane Pek. This has got to be one of the most original novels I have ever read, and I sincerely look forward to reading more by this author (hopefully in the near future!).

Man, BOTM knocked it out of the park with their March picks! Two of the books I grabbed (this and The Cartographers) are arguably the most unique books I’ve read in quite some time. Seriously, I don’t think I’ve ever read anything quite like The Verifiers.

The Verifiers is one part mystery, one part contemporary fiction, but honestly? That hardly does an accurate description for this book. There are many different elements happening within, including family drama/issues, the need to be oneself, and finding a job you love. Again, that description feels shallow compared to the book itself.

The familial drama made the story heavier at times, but I think that weight was essential. It balanced nicely with Claudia’s humor and added a different intensity to the murder case Claudia was following.

In other words, The Verifiers had a delightful balance of events, characters, and story. I loved every minute of this book. I’m going to be adding Jane Pek to my auto-buy list; that’s how much I enjoyed this story.
