Read in August, 2011

My husband was goofing around with my Kindle and found this one for free. We both agreed that the premise sounded awesome--what happens when a psycho driver who kills hitchhikers, picks up a psycho hitchhiker who kills drivers?

I started reading it before he did, and I regretted it pretty quickly. The first scene is SO gross, and SO gory. I know they warn you about it beforehand, but it's so gory that I feel it really takes away from the premise of the story. I kind of breezed through the rest of the novella just because I wanted to know what happened when Donaldson met Lucy (and the rest of the novella wasn't quite as gory...but still pretty gross).

So I think the issue here for me is that this is a novella with an excellent premise--unfortunately, it feels like the authors wanted to pack it with so much gore, that the interesting premise gets a bit lost. One positive I will say though, is that the ending is pretty cool.
