You can learn a lot about how to write a book from book reviews.
For example this review Books of The Times – Caught – By Harlan Coben – Never Look Away – By Linwood Barclay – Mom and Pop Thrillers – Review – NYTimes.com tells you how to create a believable character:
“Davidâ€™s love for his son, bewilderment about his wife and anger at his newspaperâ€™s new business practices (like outsourcing local reporting to workers on other continents, who have no idea how to paraphrase idiomatic phrases like â€˜not enough room to swing a catâ€™) all serve to make him likable and to make readers share his worries. And in terms of regular-guy realism, this thriller reveals a major clue when David and his dad try to fix the leak behind a bathroom sink.”
