The broader plot involves a plastic surgeon who, for all intents and purposes, is a garbage-pile of a human. Will he get what’s coming to him? And if so, who or what will be the the scales that balance things out? And if not, can we make peace with that?
I’m being vague on purpose, of course.
The book is also lightly peppered with beautiful yet haunting illustrations that make the book really stand out. Some are emotional, some are terrifying.
I was torn between giving this novel 4 or 5 stars. On the one hand, the novel’s prose could use some of that kind of finessing and polishing that only experience can bring.
On the other hand, BR Smith handled Jon’s despicable character with such deft. While I would normally be frustrated by a wholly unlikable character to the extent that I might even put the book down for good, Mr. Smith does a great job of exposing Jon’s human side, those touching moments with Charity that reveal that he’s not as heartless as he’d have the world believe.
Still, I settled on a 4 because I truly believe that BR Smith’s next project will be even better. Greatness is in his future, and he took his first step toward it with this release.
Though the book is great on compatible Kindle devices/apps, the paperback is where it’s at. The illustrations are lovely in print.
