Of the Lemon of the North can be loosely defined as experimental fiction, if the experiment involved flipping a mystery novel on its head and shifting the mystery to why we oh-so-love to enjoy immersing ourselves in the minds of psychopaths.
Have you ever thought about what it’d be like if the villain never died, if the villain wasn’t the villain at all, but sat front and center as the protagonist? Yes, ladies and gentleman, I’m referring to the traditionally defined anti-hero, but what I’m trying to drive home is that there’s nothing traditional about this book— anti-hero or not.
People apart of polite society, if there’s anyone else that can honestly identify themselves as such, would turn up their noses and make a disgusted look at this book while gossiping. Thankfully, I’m far from polite or engaged with society, so I can, without more than a few twinges of guilt, say this book was fascinating, engaging and thought-provoking. But seriously, don’t get me wrong, it’s bad.
If you’re looking for a traditional fairytale where the hero rescues the princess and slays the dragon, you’re better off passing this book by. On the other hand, if you’re okay blurring the lines (no wait, crossing out entirely) between what’s acceptable and proper, you’ve got a winner here. There’s nothing acceptable or proper about this book, and it’s likely to disturb you even as it fascinates you. From start to finish, you'll be hooked on this guilty pleasure. That’s the kind of story it is.
