A Serial Killer You Can Relate To

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Brilliant! This book was unlike anything I’ve ever read before. I enjoyed every minute of this deranged story.

Welcome to the mind of Joe, a seemingly normal guy that works in a bookshop. However, there is nothing normal about Joe. His mind is a fascinating place to be, turning brief encounters into meaningful events and even, obsessions. He’s a stalker, a murderer and the most candidly honest character that I’ve ever crossed.

The thing about Joe is that his craziness sucks you in. I loved Joe and all of his totally inappropriate behaviors. I found myself laughing my ass off at his brutally honest inner monologues on people and society in general. I kept thinking, “Am I supposed to be laughing so much?”

As Joe fixates on Beck, he finds ways to infiltrate her life. He stalks her, invades her most private moments and thoughts. He even eliminates those that would bring her down.

There’s no denying that he’s bat-shit crazy. However, I still loved him. I never thought I’d be able to connect with a character like Joe, but I couldn’t get enough of him.

I listened to the Audible version and it was phenomenal! The narrator did a superb job. I’m not sure I would’ve loved it as much if I had read the kindle version. He really brought a lot to the story.

It did take me a little time to get into this book. Joe was unlike any character I’d ever encountered and his inner rants took some getting used to. He grew on me quickly though, becoming a favorite character of mine in no time.

If you’re looking for something suspenseful, creepy, mysterious and a little quirky, look no further! This is a great read!
