I really hated this book. And it wasn't the subject matter that was bothering me, it wasn't the bloody gruesome scenes or the ease of killing. It was the writing itself. If I wanted to read a fashion magazine, I'd pick one up. I couldn't stand it. Same goes for music reviews. Did Mr. Ellis write essays on Genesis and Whitney Houston and couldn't get them published anywhere else so he decided to stick them in a novel?
