Jan 26, 2009

it was amazing
bookshelves: mystery-crime-thriller, edgar-award, 1st-in-series
Read in January, 2009

So ok, maybe 5 stars is too much for a crime book. But I enjoyed it, and I still keep thinking about it.

[side rant: I'm still mad at the main character, the narrator. I get where he's coming from. There are reasons why he acts certain way. But still I wish, he'd have done things differently. He's messing up his own life! It is all rather sad and frustrating. Yet, had he done right by himself, I feel that the story would not be as realistic... Bugger!]

It's a debut, and a damn good one. One thing that bugged me a little was the pace, I felt like the story could be told more dynamically. Still I'm looking forward to her next book.
