What would you do with a book like that? How far would you go to catch a madman?
And what if time was running out. . . .
This was a fantastic thriller! One of my favorites, for sure. I loved the plot, which was complex and well-thought out. It was interesting reading about how the narrator was trying to find the deranged serial killer, Roach, based only on his secret journal. Roach's character was described wonderfully, and certain chapters made me so anxious to see what would happen next! If you like a good fast-paced, intense thriller, I really recommend you read this book.
The only reason I even picked this book up was because of it's slightly odd cover, but once the book was open, I just couldn't stop! The sarcastic comedy had me telling anyone in the same room quotes, and the suspense kept me on edge for thew entire time.....definately a must read!
A thrilling, emotional roller-coaster of a read. Once you pick up this book, you will not be able to put it down. I read this book with a grooup of people and even the one who absolutely never read said that it was the best book he'd ever read in his life. This is the tpe of book that is written with elaborately interwoven ideas and occurances that leave you desiring to discover more and more every minute that you read. Also good because it is reasonably short, and wll not take long to read no matter what our age is.
All around a marvellous read.

Worst Book ever. Boring plot, executed even worst. Has no symbolism, no feelings expressed. No images are formed in your head and the reading and immersion of the book is poor. You just don't picture much and it doesn't bring you in. One of the worst books ever. Go read Joy Luck Club for a good read.
