Superb! The protagonist is dangerous: creepy, violent, a murderer. However, his internal dialog makes you laugh-out-loud at unexpected times. His complicated yet fragile nature evokes pity despite his violence. There is an underlying current of Good and Evil - and the reader is left to contemplate whether one exists solely without the other.
Really great, lots of fun, worth the smallish print and narrow margins; I wouldn't mind seeing more books featuring our nameless hero. It's a very good thing that my friend sent this book to me to borrow, my library and its partners have nothing to offer from this worthy author.
Holy shit.
A lot is going on here which is good. There are so many well written moments. I finished this about a week ago and am still trying to figure out if I liked it, which in a weird way says a lot about the book. It was definitely worth the time I spent reading it.
My friend Tammy is responsible for publishing this book in the US. With her help, I was able to meet and talk with the author. If you're looking to gain a different perspective on the world, try reading Miha's books.
Sama vsebina me ni navdušila, je pa pripoved odlično napisana.
Despite my opinion on the story, this was very well written.
