This started out amazing. The opening scene is dark, twisted, and humorous in a way that has you feeling both dirty and guilty for enjoying it. I was hooked. I felt for this poor guy, and I wanted to know what the hell was going on, what it was that put him in such a horrible situation. As the story grew into darker twists and turns, however . . . as it began exploring more psychology and family drama . . . as it transformed that feeling of empathy into one of annoyance . . . well, I found myself enjoying it less and less. I skimmed a lot to see how it ended, then skimmed backward a bit to understand why it ended that way, and I have to give William Becker full credit for what he's constructed. It is by no means a bad book - in fact, I would urge readers to give it a chance - it's just didn't connect with me.
