3.0 out of 5 stars An interesting and odd read, 4 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Killing Jar (Paperback)
It's a very odd novel with the theme of the Killing Jar that poisons the butterflies and bugs running throughout. On more than one occasion Kez refers to their estate as a killing jar and she's not wrong, it does seem unequivocally bleak and depressing.

I really enjoyed the novel whilst Kez was young, but then it all goes a bit weird for me. There are a number of events which happen and there is no way in real life, despite her circumstances, you'd feel sorry for Kez yet she portrayed in such a way that made me feel like Monaghan wants us to feel sorry for her.

This novel is most definitely believable and that's probably all the more depressing. From page one, you know Kez' life isn't going to be great and each page shows a further deterioration until we reach the conclusion which is slightly too clichéd for my liking. Definitely glad I read it though and would quite like to read another of Monaghan's novels.
