This is my first book from this author. I actually really liked the story line! My big complaint-slash-dislike is the level of cursing. It actually shocked me that it bothered me so much, I am generally not a prude, nor do I cringe at vulgarity. The level of vulgarity in the book however was more than even I could handle. It occurred so often and got so extreme, that it genuinely started to ruin the book for me.
It had a classic anti hero. This was not the usual mystery and the story owes its success to that fact.
Lots of surprises and would have never guessed at the outcome. Those are the best mysteries to me. I also have a habit of reading books before the movie. The movie would have spoiled the book completely and now I am really ready to see the movie.
Amy's gone but where's the body?
Great writing style. Reads almost as if its scripted with first him being the narrator and then her narrating. This style keeps you unsettled which is good. It's nice to have them keep you guessing.
This book is definitely worth reading. Filled with twists and turns. It's also written brilliantly with respect to various perspectives. I am excited to watch the movie and compare (though I doubt the movie will be anywhere as good as the book)
I couldn't help but wonder what transformed a beautiful, intelligent girl into such a monstrous psychopath. Narcissism at its worst.
