The violence lessens as we are taken into the "who is it" realm. The detective, Prosper Snow is an interesting character. Not really a Will Grham, or an Alex Cross, but a bit more authentic. Like most detectives from these types of books, we start of not liking Snow much, but over the course of the book we find more to like.
The Oracle is a great villain, and much like Hannibal Lecter, is the reason we should see a big screen version of this book. The author gets everything right about the creepy factor of The Oracle.
If you like the genre, you'll love this book. If you have a distaste for violence, it might not be your cup of tea.
And a quote I'm totally ripping off from a friend, but fits this book so perfectly: "The scariest monsters have human faces".
This book was scary. The beginning was pure horror. 10% into the book, and I was afraid to leave the house. At one point near the beginning, I almost put the book down saying "no more". But I couldn't. I had to read more, I had to find out what happens!
Vengeance, Retribution, Bait... There are a lot of reasons to kill. Detective Prosper Snow (coolest name ever, by the way) is now on a case to find The Oracle. No one is safe from this serial killer. And before too long, it seems the Oracle has his sights set on Prosper Snow.
I really enjoyed this book. It had some very strong elements of horror. In fact, I wouldn't recommend it for the very faint of heart or easily offended - unless you can skip over some parts. In which case, you should get it, because the rest of the book is definitely worth withstanding some very scary parts.
While taking notes for this book, I wrote down "I don't immediately like Prosper. He seems like he has a dangerous secret". But my opinion of the man changed drastically over the course of the story. Prosper snow takes you on his journey with him, and you feel it all. Stress, regret, fear, love, some more fear, a dash of paranoia, and so on and so forth.
I instantly felt like I connected with the victims. That only made it that much more difficult when they actually became the victims.Read more ›
I must say it's a smashing opening line, which got me interested in the book (probably because I am a total routine freak and therefore am obviously an easy prey!). It's what got me to buy the book (along with hints that it was going to be rather gory and hearing a lot of praises from fellow readers), and what got me totally into the story within the first few pages.
I won't spoil it for anyone, so I'll keep to generalities. Story totally messed up with my brain. Through the information that is released little by little without spoiling the actually fast-paced storyline, I ended up making theories about loads of stuff, who, what, how, why... And it's more than just the story of murdered/murderer/victims/motive etc. You see how things go for Prosper Snow, and you think "will he? won't he?" and you pretty much do that with every other character, you just don't know... and then it comes to a head. And BAM! you do know who, what, how, why. But no, it's not the end of it ! Shaun still has a couple of tricks up his sleeve, and still manages to drop more bombshells ! And you continue to think "will he? won't he?"
Loved every single line of it. For a fiction story, it's actually very credible. Because after all, we see dark stories in real life and we know how far some people are ready to go to satisfy the evil side of their personality. Details really help you imagine the scenes (people with weak stomachs be warned), and as a reader you really feel the tension, the worries and the dilemmas felt by the protagonists.Read more ›
