it was amazing
bookshelves: drama, faves

"Phobia” reminded me almost of the movie Seven, but with the killer using the victims’ worst fears instead of the seven deadly sins. I was hooked from the opening scene to the very last page as my eyes gobbled down every word, every sentence! The action didn’t slow down for a second, and every page brought new twists and turns to keep my attention. Although it was shown mostly from the police consultant’s perspective, the author utilized multiple POV’s including the killer, which was cool. But this was done so gracefully and subtly, I never felt jarred from the story. Also, I liked that there was just minimal descriptions and no overuse of adjectives. Just clean, crisp writing that pushed the story and plot forward at a good clip. Usually in reviews I try and point out the things I thought were good, but also the things I didn’t like as much – but in this book I honestly can’t think of even one thing that I didn’t love! It was fantastic!
