(I received this book for free as part of Goodreads First Reads giveaways).
(This review may contain spoilers).
This is yet another book I have some very mixed feelings about. The concept of it was quite an intriguing one and there were some really disturbing scenes in this book… but at the same time, I felt there were parts of the book that seemed to drag quite a bit.
I wasn’t entirely sure when this book was set. There were references to the modern times, but there were also some suggestions that it was set at some point in the future.
The dreams that the main characters has are truly disturbing. I wasn’t expecting half of the contents of the main character’s dreams.
I can’t really say that I liked the main character. It was interesting to see the kinds of things that went on in his mind and how he viewed other people. I did notice a few contradictions, though – like when he says he doesn’t have the money to use his phone to call people, but then uses it later. And where he has the money to buy his equipment to kill people.
I was quite confused by the ending. It didn’t really make things very clear. The glimpses into the main character’s mind were interesting… but having reached the end of the book, I’m a bit unnerved having been stuck in the head of a character so mentally disturbed. I don’t think I’d read a sequel to this book… though the fact that it had an age rating was quite amusing.
I might check out other books by this author, depending on the genre and what the book is about.
