I didn't expect much when I got this book, I mainly got it because it sounded like it might be interesting, but wasn't sure I would be able to like, or care about the characters. The author has created and developed characters that are psychopaths and sociopaths who have few to no morals and would disgust and frighten me if I knew they were in the same zip code as me (think your average Fortune 500 CEO) and has manged to make me like and care about many of them. Especially the somewhat conflicted main character who likes his fish better than most humans and his mentor and best friend who won't kill women or children.
As I already mentioned, I didn't expect much when I got this book, but it has turned out to be one of my favorite books so far this year. One of those books that the closer I got to the end, the more I kept hoping that more pages would magically appear and it wouldn't actually end for another week or so. You know, one of those books that leaves you a little empty inside at the end because you're sure that you don't have any books in your library that are going to be as good. It's one of those books that made me instantly go to the Author's Amazon page to see if he had written any more books with these characters.
While there, I was excited to find that he is writing a prequel to this book and I'm hoping a sequel will be along sometime in the future. I was also surprised to find that John had edited the entire book himself which I found amazing since I didn't find any obvious mistakes or misspellings and I'm sure it must have taken a tremendous amount of time. I'm not a grammar expert by any means, but there was nothing obvious to me.
Not everyone enjoys the same things in a book and just because I thought it was exceptionally well written doesn't mean anyone else will, but this one checked all of my boxes.
As an avid reader, I'm conditioned to be disappointed in the churn of predictable, bad editing, unpolished stories that clutter my kindle. Then I come across an author who has so many unique lines, who made me care about a stone cold killer, and I'm so glad I ignored the cover that doesn't do this story justice and got hooked by the thought and wit that went into every line of The Art of Disposal. I love the flawed and realistic characters shown through Ronnie's eyes, whose internal thought process is fascinating. The author does a wonderful balance of action, dialogue and introspection. I'll be reading every thing John Prindle puts out there.
In between the violence, the bits of reflection on relationships and humanity really grounded the book too. The thoughtful parts helped pace things without ever getting too plodding. It's 400+ pages but kept moving at a rapid clip, and as a fellow writer, I know how hard that is. Ready for the next installment in the trilogy!
