This review has taken me days of contemplation to write. I read a few reviews which said this is not realistic and the female could not be that dumb and this could never happen.. WAKE UP.. it CAN and DOES happen to young girls everyday!
My review: This novel is a stark rare look into the mind and of a psychopath.. you watch the progression of insanity; you have a front row seat watching the finesse used to cast the line, set the hook into a fragile innocence and the long slow reeling in of the line... the closer the line is reeled in the more the vulnerable innocence thrashes, finally realizing the consequences of being caught.
Look into yourself and remember when you were so young and ignorant of the evils of the world.. remember the crush on the oh so hot guy (girl) in school.. remember what it felt like to go along with the crowd.. to fit in.. remember the little voice you chose to ignore warning you not to toilet paper Mrs. Jones house.. but you did it anyway.. because you wanted the approval of going along with the crowd?
My warning: Not a novel for those who haven't the courage to look at the dark side of this life we are part of. You better have courage because it will stay in your thoughts... sneaking in.. for a very long time.
The book is a unsettling view of a man who I would categorize as (I am not a psychiatrist) a sociopath or some type of personality disorder, and the girl that got taken along for the horrifying ride. I do not want to give too much away, so I will just say that this is not a healthy romance and contains some rather disturbing events of rape and violence.
My only issues with the book are someone related. For starters, I know that a person of Zeke's nature is unpredictable, but I don't know if I believe he would have invested so much time and effort on Sue, especially before they hit the road. He seems too impulsive to put up with another person for very long. I guess then we would not have this story, so I am just going to assume that a person of Zeke's ego enjoyed having someone to tag along to amuse himself with sexually that he could also manipulate and belittle. I just would think he would have gotten bore or fed up with her much sooner. Also, on the subject of pace, I am surprised it took Zeke as far into the story as it did to really show off his (extra) crazy side. I know all the signs are there early on, but he seems to go off the deep end later in the game than I would have predicted. I only complain about these factors, because when characters "act out of character" it removes me from the story.
All in all, if you are intrigued by the description of "ZEKE" you will most likely enjoy it granted you are not offended by the violent and sexual elements. If you are, you have been warned so go find another book!
I don't like to post negative reviews, unless I feel very strongly about the review and for me to NOT finish a book is highly unusual. I am hoping that if someone else might be dettered by this type of writing, they will take my review into consideration.
Having said that and because I did positively review "Betrayed", I will continue to follow this author for additional works.
Susie meets Zeke and is instantly enamored with him. The author does a fabulous job of describing how Zeke wins her over with his looks, smile and personality. Susie is somewhat of an introvert living with her parents who are stuck in an 80's timewarp with little knowledge of their only child's life outside their home. When Zeke talks Susie into leaving their boring life behind and heading out on the open road in search of freedom she has absolutely no idea he is completely psychotic. Wodke Hawkinson does an excellent job of telling the story from the perspectives of both main characters, including the multitude of inner thoughts both have throughout the book. Be warned, this book is graphic and contains multiple rape scenes so if you have a weak stomach don't buy it.
I am looking forward to reading more by this author and have already purchased Betrayed.
