The book does move at an astonishing pace, the sort of prose where you skip half the words in order to reach the next turn in the plot on the following page. There's certainly no poeticism here, it's potboiler all the way, but in this sense it is perfect for a lazy Sunday afternoon.
I was holding out for some sort of - if not happy, then at least optimistic - ending, but nope, no such luck. The death count gets higher and higher until it blows through the proverbial roof. The ending has a clever little twist, one that would make you cringe if you could see the book as anything deeper than the fun read it is.
To sum it up, I would say hardly life changing but perfectly enjoyable if you love a good bit of sex and violence.
Still can't help wondering if the whole 'horror' part was superficial to the story, but nevertheless, made it interesting.
Not great, but not bad either.
