MY THOUGHTS -This book was freaking brilliant! I read it once way back in the early fall - I loved it then. I just re-read it and I think I loved it even more this time!
This is one of those books that starts out like "Whaaaaat?" and you are not sure you want to continue, but wait!... Keep reading! You have to read this book all the way through before judging it, because you won't get it unless you do. If you quit in the beginning because you think you won't like it - you are really missing out!
This story-line is different, very different, but that's what I loved about it. I get tired of reading the "same ol' same ol'" So bravo to Lisa for her bravery in bringing us this incredible book. This was just as much fun as it was creepy.
And the characters! Oh my word! don't even get me started on the characters! Holy crap! Excellent character development - even in the secondary ones. Each one was so different and unique. Quite a few of them - snarky and quirky (my favorite type!). Agnes was my favorite, but honestly I just loved them all!
Warning - there is quite a bit of swearing - but... it works! I can't imagine this book without it.
I guarantee this will be one of my favorite books of the year! I was just telling my husband about it tonight at dinner. How there are so many spider webs in the plot and so many characters and how they are all connected in some way and how the author ties it all together in the end. I told him I could picture Lisa, the author, sitting with 3X5 cards with notes all over the table LOL. My husband said it sounds like it would make a great movie. YES!
I'm actually hoping it comes out in audible - I would love to listen to it!
So if you are looking for something that dares to be different and you don't mind a roller coaster ride - hold on and go for it!
Come back tomorrow for an original interview with the author - Lisa de Nikolits, its a great interview, almost as much fun as the book!
I voluntarily posted this review after receiving a copy of this book from Partners in Crime Tours - Thank You!!
