From the beginning of chapter one to the very last chapter this story is so detailed, very intense, emotionally exhausting, vividly descriptive, mind boggling, heart pounding and heart wrenching book that I have read.
At the end of the first chapter I was in tears and said- this book is not for me at all. I put my Kindle down and found myself picking it up a bit later to see what the next chapter would be like- I did this through out the entire book-- put it down, pick it back up again, put it down yet again saying nope I can't finish this book. Well this was quite an experience for me and quite a ride let me tell you. I did finish this book and only skipped over the chicken area.
I found myself gasping at times, saying thing's like OMG, put this book down , take a break NOW, do not pick this up again etc. How Scott molded this entire story together is an art. His mind and thought's keep pulling you in even when you don't want to finish this book.
Then when Joshua brings Jacob to their father's house, the empire, and all the evil that happened their, this story turned into a very dark psychological thriller to me, yet I still could not put the dang story down, I was sitting on the edge of my seat at times.
There were a few times I laughed like the description of Carlita being wrapped into a tortilla ( hot and spicy) or when the twins were sitting together in the car and are described as two embroy's in a womb and the vision of duct tape and a snake. This author has so much imagination and must read all types of genre's and retain every single thing forever.Plus he has been given a great gift of writing.
Scott Nicholson is a genius at writing and has the capability of becoming a well established author, IMHO .
I thought about this story and it kept going through my head well after reading it and I am reliving it as I give this review . I feel like Scott absolutely deserve's a 5 star review because his writing is amazing and I am a firm believer in giving credit where credit is due. Kudo's to Mr. Nicholson for writing " Disintegration" and giving me a ride I won't forget...
I am hooked on reading indie books and am trying to read different genre's.
First, Nicholson is a stellar writer. In this novel, he's given us rare glimpses into the F-ed up minds of the characters. (Sorry to be so blunt, but that's completely accurate, in my opinion.) Nicholson's like an evil genius that way- to show me how completely screwed up a person can become while still functioning in society. The plot is twisty and murky at times, and I totally didn't see the numerous plot twists at the end. The opening chapters were some of the hardest I've ever read- in terms of tragic subject matter, but they were also the most visceral and vivid I've read in a while too.
Now, I had a few minor issues too. I feel like there wasn't a single character to root for through the suspenseful plot. I liked the wife (forget her name, sometimes my own too) well enough, but almost from the beginning I was conflicted by her. Something seemed off about her. So I didn't make a good connection with any of them, really. As good as this book was, it would have been stellar if I'd grown to care for someone, only to see the error of my ways at the end.
My other nit-pick is the names of the twin main characters, Joseph and Jacob. I get it. Twins have twinsy names, but dang-it, I had to go back and read once or twice because I kept confusing the two and then what was happening at the time didn't make as much sense. I hate getting sucked out of the story like that. But, it only happened infrequently and I've already confessed my lack of name-remembering, so the fault there might be my own.
Overall, I will certainly read more by Nicholson, as his mind seems to be as warped as my own and I can't wait to see what else he's created in that diabolical noggin of his!
Tragedy strikes Jacob and Renee Wells when their house goes up in flames one night and they suffer the horrors of the aftermath. These two are no strangers to tragedy though, especially Jacob who has been dealing with darkness his whole life. When his long lost but not forgotten twin brother shows back up in town, the sins of the past come to the present and none of their lives will ever be the same.
I'm trying to review this without putting in any spoilers. It's difficult. One thing I think I can say that makes this book rather unique (at least to me) is that Nicholson gives the reader good reasons not to like ANY of the main characters. On the surface they seem to be two people dealing with a series of horrible events but as more was revealed about them I found myself saying aloud 'wow...I really don't like these people..at all'..but that didn't make them any less enjoyable to read. Is Jacob a cold hearted control freak? Is Renee just a power hungry drama queen?
This book isn't for the feint of heart. It's not gory, it's not super violent. It just covers some very disturbing subject matter that has a good chance of disturbing you.
I didn't rate this a five star because at times it's confusing and the ending left me scratching my head even more, especially in regards to how I felt about several of the characters. The e-version has an alternate ending that, while different, I found equally confusing. Some may call it 'thought provoking' I'm sure =)
Either way, it's well written and a page turner to be sure. Just be prepared to feel sucker punched at some of the events and subject matter. It's a great example of how many colors Nicholson has in his palette.
