Great read! Loved it!

Dinner Party

Original storyline

Very original storyline! Loved the way you got a glimpse into the background of each of the guests at the dinner party. And the host of the party is one of the most interesting and terrifying characters I’ve come across. I hope there is a sequel to this book which helps us to find out more about that intriguing host.

Favourite read!

Definitely my favourite from Daniel!
Hooked straight away. Definitely made me think about who I’d have at my dinner party!

Dinner Party

It’s such a great concept

I enjoyed the idea of this book and was amazed no-one else had ever thought of it. I kind of thought the story would go in the direction that it would, but wasn't sure.
I enjoyed it. It entertained and enthralled me. (and it made me laugh out loud too).
An easy to read book with a good story line and dark humour.

Grabbed by the "If you could hold a dinner party with famous people that are no longer with us, who would you invite?" tagline. Dinner Party by Daniel J. Barnes gave me a cast of characters that made for a wildly entertaining and horrifically wonderful dinner.

Blending together humor and horror is one of my favorite types of books and Dinner Party pulls it off. Instantly having a mild moment of panic at the beginning of the book as Barnes decided to mix up the chapters and then also having my lil brain scrambled in the storytelling chapter, I got more than I expected. Trust his process. I can truly tell you nothing of the story because you need to just go in and let the story come at you in the way it was intended. The story works magnificently because of these crazy twists and moments he put in. It is crafted to perfection.

Really good read, I like how it’s written. Without giving too much away it’s like watching a crime program where it keeps flashing back to events leading up to the main story. Kept me gripped and immersed and entertained.
Another great book from a great author

This fantastic third novel by Daniel J. Barnes takes you on a journey to discover what would happen if you could answer the question who would you invite to a Dinner Party the chapters are not conventionally laid out as in a regular book but this adds to the story for the reader it has you gripped from the start.

I would definitely recommend this book.

What a great read! This book had me gripped from the start and kept me involved right til the end! With it's mix of humour as well as slight mystery it never disappointed.

The author has managed to create a story which makes you want to keep reading and finding out what will happen next. It's well written and a great size for those just wanting a short read for holidays, short breaks etc.

If your looking for a light hearted read which will keep you intrigued whilst also raise a smile or two I would 100% recommend Dinner Party!

I've read both of Dan's previous books and enjoyed them. I was a bit sceptical over this one to begin with as I'd never really thought too much about the question let alone a full book about it. The jumbled up chapters also interest me because I'm going to have to read the book again in order to see the story in flow order. I've never ever had that before.

The short and curlys are I loved it. Same as always with Dan character depth is outstanding. You have a real strong knowledge of who's who based on Dan's deep descriptive writing style. I loved the inclusion of the story written in German to keep the flow as in keeping as possible.

Dan's stories all being loosely connected to other books is also a strong indicator of a bigger thing than just the one book which I think personally not even Dan has figured out what it might be yet but I put nothing past him.

I started the book when it came out, and I have only just got around to finishing it due to personal commitments. But what can I say about it? Upon finishing the book I was speechless it has taken me some time to come and think about what to write.

If you are a person who likes crime thrillers and murder mystery’s then this book is one hundred percent for you. It includes everything you expect from a murder mystery with extras added in.

At first when I picked the book up I was quite sceptical about how it was laid out. I thought that I would find it hard to read, but I kept going and I’m glad I did. The chapters are expertly crafted in a way that entices you to read on. Dans choice of words really flows and could easily pass for a professional writer.

At times the imagery that Dan pushes is of the explicit nature, but really adds depth to the story. For my age I have read a lot of books and I am pleased to say that Dinner Party is my new favourite book. I loved every moment about it.

I would recommend this to anyone that loves a bit of mystery. Well done Dan.

Of all his books I felt this may not to be my cup of tea, but had a few hours to spare so dug in ready for a slog. How wrong I was!

If you've found Daniel's books via his comic inspired Vatican series or almost biopic Blood Stained Canvas, I'd urge you open your horizons and read my favourite of his 5 current books (number 6 due very soon)

I was absolutely gripped from start to end and read in a single sitting. What seems to be simple dinner party and the guests journey through the night turns into a much different affair by the end. The shifting chapters introducing us to the characters was a great way to break up a fairly obvious dinner party. The writing was superb and much better than previous books, obviously his confidence and experience is really paying off now. Loved the fact the book feels like the starter (or even main course) of a bigger story and the last page had me gagging for more. Hopefully Daniel gets round to writing another course for us all to enjoy and find out more secrets of The Hosts Dinner Party.

I have only rated this book as a four because of my own preference of what I enjoy reading. Unfortunately this book didn’t draw me in as much as Dan’s other books. However it was brilliantly written and went into great detail especially with the characters. I would recommend this book to others to read as we are all individuals with our own preferences if we were all the same the world of books would not host and open up our minds and hearts to other worlds behind our imagination

Another great book from Daniel J Barnes. Some full on belly laugh moments and moments of complete shock. I really liked how the book was laid out by not starting with chapter 1.
