Read in July, 2012

I was lucky enough to win a copy of Dastardly Bastard in a goodreads giveaway. I had previously read Edward Lorn's debut novel Bay's End and enjoyed it. His sophomore offering did not disappoint.

Dastardly Bastard retains the sarcastic humor that I loved in Bay's End as he goes from a coming of age story to one of adults coming to grip with the most painful and intense memories of their past. The cast is unique and Lorn does a good job of letting you inside their minds.

Another thing that I liked was just the little mention of Bay's End that tied Lorn's world together.

This book has moments where you will laugh out loud and others that will have you holding your breath. It was an enjoyable read and one I would recommend for a range of age groups. My teenage son will be reading it next!
