it was amazing
bookshelves: 2010

In which our protagonist tears down his entire world just to get back to/with the only person in the world he loves. Spoiler: It doesn't work.

This was the book, I guess, where Huston's noir roots really hit me - you like Joe, and you root for him, but he's not always (or even often) a good person. He doesn't always make choices that you would, or ones that are morally acceptable. Or sane. But, I mean, he's been telling you since the first book that not only does he live in the dark and drink blood, but that he was raised in an atmosphere of horrific abuse. Joe isn't an abuser himself, but he's also not normal, even by the standards of his world. I haven't read #5 yet, so this is just a suspicion, but at this point I don't know if I want there to be a sixth Joe Pitt book - let's just say that it feels like his story is drawing to an end.
