No. Strike that. What I love the most about this book is the slow building suspense over time, the dark crimes that intertwine their lives, with discovery a day away.
Nope. Not that either. What I love the most about this book is Finnegan the grown man, how he begins again at every setback, and his growing obsession.
Nope. Wrong again. I love the ending the most. That final word. I highly recommend that you read this great book all the way to the end. Then you'll know what I love the most about this book. It's one of the best.
For me, the best thing about the novel was, I really didn’t know what to expect. For the record, I’ve had my fill of serial killers. So, as the bodies piled up in Pocketful of Bones, I was surprised at the logic and—dare I suggest it?—the correctness of it. The story unfolds as though Fate itself were guiding mother and son to their inescapable destinies. And along the way, they planted the annuals. In short, they were born for this.
If you’re looking for a satisfying read that both perplexes and horrifies in a Canadian sort of way, I suggest you read this book. And remember: anyone is capable of murder; some see it as just another tool in the toolbox.
Julie Frayn has written a fun little book about psychosis, a mother's love and forensic archaeology. The characters in this story are well crafted, and i enjoyed getting to know all of them. The story itself was quite unique, and Frayn kept the storyline moving along very nicely. This was one book I could not stop reading, and I am looking forward to reading more of her work.
My Rating: 4.25/5 stars
Actually, it was extremely well written but is definitely not for everyone. The material is very dark with an ongoing sense of impending doom. The author, Julie Frayn is a "sick puppy" in the best sense of that phrase. She deserves credit for writing a novel which is not your typical study of evil. Too many novels are too similar to others that I've read. In this case, I can think of nothing similar.
It was not really a "page turner" for me, but it did keep me very interested throughout. If you were a fan of the TV series "Dexter", you will likely love this novel, otherwise stay away.
