This author has put down in words what some only dream about, cannot or won't voice. The character seems to be on autopilot, going through the motions each day--getting up, going to work, coming home, etc. You find that he does want to be recognized for his abilities, but also does not want to be taken advantage of as his sister does in this story. When he has to identify her body after a tragedy he shows the emotions that have been built up over time and circumstances throughout the his life and even though she made incorrect choices, he still can feel for her life that has gone wrong somewhere along the line.
The author describes each situation, each day with the character by words that make you feel the pain, the sense of hopelessness and even anger building up inside. When it comes to the point of no return, you feel the emotions rise up in the character and finally released due to a betrayal of someone he loved. He is finally feel free for the first time in a long time and before he is captured meets another who knows what he is feeling and understands. He knows she will appreciate her time, family and friends even more after witnessing this tragedy he has caused.Read more ›
With the beautiful gift the author exhibits, I'd love to give the book five stars. But somewhere past the halfway point, the subject matter became so disturbing I had to skim through it quickly to see how it ended without getting too involved in the horror of the events. I wouldn't call the sex and violence gratuitous, because it's necessary to the story, not shoehorned in for shock value. But it's graphic, and it's disturbing, and if you're prone to nightmares, this is good fodder.
The book is unquestionably well written; the author's ability is impressive, and the typical errors of the novice writer are absent here. It's just a shame that it's not a story I can recommend to my friends.
