I've waited a month to write a review because I hoped I would like this disturbing and compelling book more than I did. This boy is surrounded by dysfunction and it's a miracle that he survived at all. As much as I disliked it however, I felt compelled to finish as I was pulled along by the ever more disturbing plot. In that, it was excellent, by I certainly wouldn't save it to disc as I would never want to read it again.
I couldn't put this book down. I couldn't wait to get to the end.
I was a little let down by the end. He seemed to sell out. And the book got complicated about two thirds of the way through. And i loved the references to Scooby doo throughout the book;.
no, i have not.
I didn't have an extreme reaction to this book. I enjoyed it, and wanted to read it. I loved it, and listened to it for several hours at a time but it didn't make me laugh or cry.
One might have a greater appreciation of this booj if one is familiar with the work of Lovecraft.
I loved the fact that you got to care about the main character. Having been the wife of a recovering alcoholic, I could relate and this story was perfect. I couldn't wait to continue to listen so I could find out what happened to her and to her family.
My favorite was the main character's gay boyfriend. His name escapes me at the moment but he was the one I most wanted to know a little better. I wanted him for MY friend.
No, I have not.
Probably the husband of the Jehovah;s Witness woman that was killed. His capacity for forgiveness is something that I could learn a lot from.
