The Last Werewolf | [Glen Duncan]

The Last Werewolf

Meet Jake. A bit on the elderly side (he turns 201 in March), but otherwise in the pink of health. The nonstop sex and exercise he’s still getting probably contribute to that, as does his diet: unusual amounts of flesh and blood (at least some from friends and relatives). Jake, of course, is a werewolf, and with the death of his colleague he has now become the only one of his kind.

Publisher's Summary

Meet Jake. A bit on the elderly side (he turns 201 in March), but otherwise in the pink of health. The nonstop sex and exercise he’s still getting probably contribute to that, as does his diet: unusual amounts of flesh and blood (at least some from friends and relatives). Jake, of course, is a werewolf, and with the death of his colleague he has now become the only one of his kind. This depresses Jake to the point that he’s been contemplating suicide. Yet there are powerful forces who for very different reasons want - and have the power - to keep Jake alive.

Here is a powerful new version of the werewolf legend - mesmerizing and undeniably sexy, and with moments of violence so elegantly wrought they dazzle rather than repel. But perhaps its most remarkable achievement is to make the reader feel sympathy for a man who can only be described as a monster - and in doing so, remind us what it means to be human.

One of the most original, audacious, and terrifying novels in years.

From the Hardcover edition.

What the Critics Say

“A brilliantly original thriller, a love story, a witty treatise on male (and female) urges, even an existential musing on what it is to be human. Get one for yourself and one for the Twilight fan in your life.” (James Medd, The Word , UK)

“Space should be cleared for this violent, sexy thriller... The answer to Twilight that adults have been waiting for.” (Courtney Jones, Booklist)

“Yes, there are vampires here... But don’t give this book to Twilight groupies; the frank tone, dark wit, and elegant, sophisticated language will likely do them in... smart, original, and completely absorbing. Highly recommended.” (Barbara Hoffert, Library Journal)

    "Great reader"

    I would probably given up reading this book, but the reader was excellent. I am reaching saturation on the ware vampire genre.

    Any additional comments?

    I couldn't listen to the whole thing, it was horrible. The book couldn't keep my attention because it was all over the place, it's as though the author had several books to write and was tossing bits and pieces into this one.

    This book is like the difference between horror movies of the past and current slasher movies, the movies of the past were fun, scary and left you wondering, the slasher movie is just gore and sex and no real content. You're left wondering why you bothered and you need to give your brian a bath and somehow wash away the garabage.

    "Great concept, so-so writing."

    It just didn't flow right for me. It had some good points, but not enough. I just wanted to finish it so I could move on to something better.

    "This book is soooooo slow...."

    Please, I'm hoping this audio book picks up. Rght now the character is remembering, reflecting and basically boring me to the point of tears. I'm hoping to get through it and perhaps I'll hear some action, some moving forward instead of "rear-view" mirror explaining. The narrator is excellent and for right now, this is the only compliment I can think of for this presentation.
