Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Them or Us (Hater series) (Hardcover)
Mr Moody sucked me in, and I have certainly given him a good chunk of money. I'm a big fan of his Autumn series, and I was really looking forward to the conclusion of the Hater trilogy. Unfortunately, i didn't think it lived up to the expectations. Hater did a great job of creating the paranoia one would expect based on the premise. I actually liked Dog Blood even more; seeing the potential for some excellent irony and a great twisting ending. I just don't think he quite got it on this one. Danny doesn't act much like a protagonist in this one, mostly getting dragged along by whoever else is currently in the picture. The story just didn't really ever feel like it had legs; it couldn't go anywhere. It was almost as though he painted himself into a corner, and didn't know how to get the story out.
Don't get me wrong, i finished it, and it was ok. but i had such high expectations after Dog Blood.
But let's face it, if you've read the first two, you're going to read this one. i might just recommend borrowing a copy.

I was gunna write a review but this pretty much sumed up all my thoughts I read and own the book but I was really dissapointed. Like how you said Danny is just dragged around everywhere I completly agree and instead of his beastial aggresion he just mopes throughout the whole book. I wouldnt go as far as to call it a bad book but it was a major dissapointment If I rated Hater Id give it a 9/10 compared to Them or Us I would give it 4/10
