3.0 out of 5 stars Michael First, 9 May 2013
By 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: January First (Paperback)
The main thing to note about this book is that it's not January's story, it's Michael's. Michael's love for Janni is unconditional, and he is a fantastic father, but at times I feel this takes over the story too much. I feel for the mother, who Michael has written in such a way that I can't even see how they are still together after she's read it. He seems very controlling, right down to the way he tells his story.

I did actually really enjoy the book, in its extremely disturbing way. It reminds me a little of 'We Need to Talk About Kevin' at times, but the fact it is real life really is amazing. The pace is right, it's well written and wasy to read. I so wanted to give it more stars, because I know it's just Michael's love for Janni that makes his story the way it is, but it just frustrated me in the end.

Here's the "fantastic father" in action.

The "mother" is the manic voice behind the camera.
