Whatever? Yeah, check-out the Kristine Whatever chapter.
I am an avid reader, who typically reads two to three books at a time (one in the car, one in my bedroom, and one at work). I’ve done this just about my entire life. Until now. Or, more accurately, until I read past page 69 in this series (more on that later). Since page 70, not only have I not been able to put this book down, it is now the ONLY book I am reading. I hate when a great book ends, which is something I don’t have to worry about until I get to the last page of Installment 8. It’s so cool to turn to the last page of one book and simply pick up the next. I’m only half-way through the series and can confidently say each book is better than the last, and with each book, I form a stronger bond with each the characters. I’m so connected to them, I feel like they are truly part of my life. At times, I even see myself in some of them. So, to fellow readers, if you’ve picked up the first book and struggled with the first 70 or so pages (they are very descriptive, which is not my reading style, I tend to skim the descriptions to get to the action), TURN TO PAGE 70. I’m so incredibly glad I did!
I have to say that this book is extremely well written. The dialogue is literary and grabs your attention immediately. The author definitely has their own voice and creates these amazingly three dimensional characters which make you invest in them simply from a few chapters into the book. The story is at once both mysterious, exciting, psychological, and titillating. I can’t recommend this book more. I am usually hesitant with modern literary fiction and new authors, but it is not too much to say that this book explores the psychological makeup of its characters much like Hemingway’s The Sun Also Rises and its characters sexuality like D.H. Lawrences’ Lady Chatterly’s Lover with a little bit of 50 Shades of Grey thrown in for spice. A real thrill and enjoyment to read. It is also beautifully bound and illustrated! Highly recommend for those who like literature and those who like entertainment.
