What are you readingEhum a book I bought at Gatwick airport last weekDo you like itNoWhat is it aboutPsychopaths talking about the microscopic details of their murderous actions explaining them away with even worse psychopathic deeds that they fell victim to watered down to banal cause and effect psychologyWhat Who would read that kind of book Sounds hardWell on the pro side the language is simplistic the plot is absurd and it is short so I think it caters to young adults with a short attention span and an obsession for violence in different drastic formsWell we live in a violent world that is realityYes True I doubt we would see a father trying to change the gender of his child though and a murderer who proudly announces three completed murders before reaching adolescence using bombs snakes and kites to kill off even younger children in the family explaining it with hindsight at age seventeen as a phase he went through because of some very odd Freudian sexual issues and stereotypical misogynyEhYes I knowWhy do you read that kind of trashDunno Motives are bizarre sometimes Cheap and easy entertainment Fascination with vulgarity I was bored at the airport and paid for it People like violence especially against women children and animals They like to be confronted with bodily functions and exact descriptions of drunken vomit They like it in the way they like brutal computer games and stupid television showsIt's not funny thoughIsn't it Isn't it funny when a murderer stops to contemplate the fact that he might look a bit silly like Mr Spock when he is working on his sinister plansYou sound sarcastic and angryI am Angry that I read this book The vulgarity of the world makes me angry We have abolished Ancient Roman gladiator games and Medieval public executions only to find ourselves being completely absorbed by morbid stories psychopaths and their victimization I am angry I've had enoughAs I only review what I finish though I forced myself to read to the last page Fully aware that my review will be different from most others' opinion on this novel I have to voice my anger at the shallow violence voyeurism exaggerated to the point of becoming bizarre satire without sense or meaning If you think it is funny to read about a child exploding please consider this a roller coaster of the most hilarious kindRecommended for those who would have enjoyed sitting in the Colosseum watching animals and humans tear each other apart for the entertainment of the bored SPR Recommended for those who wouldn't have missed spitting in the face of a condemned witch before watching every detail of her skin burning while she's publicly suffering at the stake in the Middle Ages Recommended for whoever needs a bit of sexually motivated absurd unrealistic violence every page or two to keep reading Recommended for those who sit in front of brutal computer games and laugh out loud whenever the pressing of a button causes a virtual character to go BOOOOOM body parts graphically flying over the whole screen Recommended for those who like violence for violence's sake and who do not need or want any other raison d'être for so called literatureAs for me I'll make a check on my list of tried and failed to like another hailed mainstream author
