While well written, I've no stomach currently for graphic horror so I stopped reading & didn't renew the library loan. I'll give the author's other books a try; this one we chalk up to bad timing on my part.

This book gets my highest rating because it is one of those rare ones that, as I approach the end, I am sad because I will regret parting company with the characters. In some ways, there are no unique tropes in this book; it is similar to many high school-angst stories. But Lyga's characters are so well-fleshed, and the comic geek theme so close to my own SF geek real life, that the story practically sang its reality to me.
[Audiobook note: The narrator absolutely nails the tone. Were I reading the book, the characters' voices in my head would have used exactly the same intonations and patterns.]… (mais)

this was really interesting. I am hoping that there is a second book and that Jazz gets to catch Billy. no spoiler intended if you are reading the book the names should make sense

I enjoyed this read. I thought it was a super fast pae read. I also really liked all the characters in this read especially the side characters. I also like the intensity of this story and how fast pace it was. I also really liked how you did get POV chapters from the killers POV. I also think the sturucture of this story reminded me a bit of the nartuals series by jennifer lynn barnes and some early caslte epsiodes. I also like how jazz character proogressed as well. I thought all the character realtionships were fun and i will def check out the sequels!… (mais)
