So why only four stars instead of five? Well, technically I'd give this book 4.5 stars if I could. I loved, loved, loved it--right up until the last chapter, especially the last few paragraphs. I don't want to spoil the plot, so I won't go into details. I will say that I was confused by the ending--it seemed that a prior scene or two between the three characters who are in the very final scene was missing. I even re-read the last 15% of the book just to make sure I hadn't missed something. I simply could not figure out how to interpret the last chapter, especially those final paragraphs, because the main characters in that chapter seem too tentative and unsure (with regard to how they relate to Belinda) to support the tone of the final paragraphs. I finished the book feeling unbalanced. Were they truly that reconciled and at ease with each other? It didn't seem so, which made the very ending feel forced and unnatural--at least to me.
That said, I would still highly recommend this book. The rest of it is just about pin-perfect.
And, thanks to this book I now have a headache - the curse of reading too late into the night under the poor artificial lighting in the bedroom. I guess even upsizing the kindle's print couldn't remedy that... And an entire morning wasted as I had to finish it! Thanks Wailing, you kept me entertained ^^
There are a bunch of cringe-worthy grammatical errors that didn't get caught, and a few that might have been intentional. Although such things irritate me, they were not enough to make me dislike the book. I still think he is an amazing author and I recommend his Auto series as well. I read them first and found a couple of references in Fake Kate that tied to that series, which is always a fun inside joke to me, when authors allude to their own work. (Or, I should say, the Auto series refers to a few things I read in this book. I think this book came first.)
The music and club scenes in the story are very far from my world - in fact I was sure he was making up the musical genre "House" as it sounds like total crap, but it actually exists. ("Porch," as far as I can tell, is made up.) Initially I found the book depressing because the lifestyles of these people are so far from my own and seem very empty, but the mystery kept me reading. I give him a lot of credit as an author that he wrote a compelling narrative about characters who I would never hang out with in real life.
David Wailing publishes his work independently, and mainstream publishers, you don't know what you're missing. If any of them ever rejected his work, they're idiots. This book will be swirling around in my mind for a long time. Worth the money spent.
