Hey Select Samaritan, how's the book going? I was curious because it's a great title and wanted your opinion on it
You've got a lot riding on this, Raisin. Don't forget, you picked it!
It's not bad. I'm not finished yet though. I'm a slow reader regardless, but I haven't been reading much at the same time. Three quarters done and I like it enough to give it three out of five stars.
Overall, it's better than average and in some areas, it's quite good.
It's about a serial killer with a unique method of murder, in case you didn't already know. The novel chronicles a new phase in his life you might say, as he moves from one part of the country to another.
The writing is choppy, though intentionally so. Meant to mirror his mind. Although he's a very calm and cool individual at the same time.
Every now and again, Lew (the writer) lets go an absolute gem, either as a paragraph, a scene or a simple one sentence observation. So he's "good" if you know what I mean.
There are a million books one could and perhaps should read before this one. But if you're in between great novels, give this one a try as a break.
I often do that. Break up heavier novels with lighter filler. Anyway...
