Not for the easily offended.
on 6 February 2012
This is quite a shocking and disturbing read at times but despite this it is still a page turner. Jimmy Hawthorne, is a bit of a loner. He decides to live out his fantasies by kidnapping 2 fellow high school girls who he then holds as prisoners in a secret underground fallout shelter. You do wonder where it is all going to end and the descriptions of violence and torture are quite detailed but I think they are necessary for the story. I like the fact that we get to see both sides of Jimmy - his "good" side, the relationship with his family, especially his brother and the start of his first romance. However this is soon replaced by the "evil" side and the pain and torture he inflicts on the 2 girls. Great ending - totally surprised me and left me thinking! A good read if you like this kind of story but not for the easily offended.
I have just realised that I have another of this author's books (Text Message) on my Kindle, and if "Jimmy" is anything to go by I should be in for another good read.
