I loved this book! Very well narrated, spooky thriller with bits of Frankenstein, Macbeth, American Psycho and Stephen King. This is Ellis' best work since his debut -- well told, smart story with lots of interesting twists and turns.
I really enjoyed the confusion between biography and story as the book evolves.
Well narrated, but a somewhat tedious "summer" book, reads like a hard boiled hollywood thriller. Not a lot of innovation over George Orwell in terms of the 'surveillance society,' -- seems like JTH's "off the grid" life is sort of a gimmick to sell the book.
Not a lot to say about this. The young boy is a good character, but otherwise it doesn't have the energy or heart of his first book.
