Wow, this is an in depth look into the mind of someone who is mentally unstable ... or is he really? The author had me going with this one - there were moments where I felt just as disoriented as Michael did, and being in his head was a trip. It was believable, realistic, and kinda freaky. However, as fascinating as Michael's story was, it took 179 pages before anything other than - "he's crazy and deserves to be committed" - to happen. That's a little over half the book.

But once we got going - we really got going. I was expecting some plot twist to explain what was really going on - I mean, the author practically told us this - BUT I didn't expect THAT twist ... or rather, those TWO twists! But I think because the author spent so much time on Michael's madness, when we finally got to the truth about the murders, it just didn't seem all that believable. I don't want to give anything away, but I wish Wells had gone into more detail about some of the other characters. It felt like I spent so much time in Michael's head, that when anything not having to do with him happens - it seemed like it was coming from left field.
