4 out of 5 STARS- DIFFERENT AND VERY UNIQUE, FOR DARING READERS!!
This book was a challenge for me. As a reader I really enjoy the horror-thriller genre, but this book was something else. A very different read , which I believe every lover of horror MUST read it.
Thank you, "Making Connections" for giving me the chance of reading this book! And Todd Russell, of course.
It was an intense reading. Let me tell you something. This isn't just a horror novel. It's a psychological one , too. It combines perfectly three basic elements of a psychological novel: suspence, craziness and perverted human nature. While I was reading this book I found myself wondering what is a life of a criminal, how can he kill and why. I found myself wondering if I could kill, too (no kidding). It got that under my skin!
What is more, the author takes all the above characteristics and "marry" them with a horrific background. Every character has gone through hell and every criminal has lost the sense of reality. This is how this novel, makes you thirsty for more and more and more. To my mind, The second half of the book was more completed than the first half.
I'm not a person who yearns for long and wordy descriptions. The author took care of that, too, with a fast-paced narration. The descriptions were what the book needed. Simple and understandable. Also, I love it when there are different points of view given in a book. "Fresh Flesh" was this kind of book, as well.
I think, the grammar was at times uncared but this didn't stop me for deavouring this book.
This novel, you either love it or hate it. People who take risks at their reading and wish to read something different, will love it. I'm one of these people. It worthed my time and from now on, I'll have an eye on Todd Russell's work!
