A Lesser Evil by Lesley Pearse is a novel published in 2005 and is about The world of rich influential men and their appetites for delinquency and how that then affects the lives of many.
In this book we see how an innocent young lady’s life is changed by her love for someone outside of her class and how choosing love over family opened her eyes to the reality of a life in the ‘real’ world.
This book is written in a narrative style that makes you almost imagine the scenes and feel your heart racing when drama unfolds.I quite enjoyed the element of being educational and eye-opening while also keeping to the purpose of what a good book should do, which is to keep you entertained yet thrilled at the same time. I also loved how easy it was to commit to wanting to see closure for the main characters.
The only negatives to this book are the crude language and the graphic description of some of the disturbing scenes, which in turn made the story even more believable.
I’d recommend this book to anyone who is ready to accept that life is far from perfect, not only that but that it is so close to evil.
Out of ten, I rate A Lesser Evil a well-deserved 9 out of 10, taking away the 1 point solely for the language and graphic descriptions.
