Psychologically creepy and dark. The premise and the characters are fascinating but I felt the read to be a bit choppy. I get that there is an urgency to the writing and, perhaps a strategy to have the prose mimic the up and down aspects of Guy's state of mind...but the flow of the narrative still felt a bit clunky to me. As a first novel though - holy cow! I wonder how creeped out the publisher was upon receiving the manuscript?
