Well...I'm not even sure where to begin,
This review is from: Jago (Paperback)
So first of all, this book took me absolutely MONTHS to finish. I'm not a slow reader so this was an odd sensation for me. Please don't assume that because it took a long time it must have been a bad book, the book was great, there are other reasons.
Each chapter in this book tells part of the story from a different characters point of view, eventually blending them together. It works pretty well, although it did take me quite some time to get my head round the characters because of this. It also meant that I found it difficult to just pick up the book and read a bit as I found that if I only read a chapter I would forget what on earth had been going on and who it happened to. Maybe that is just my poor memory I don't know. I ended up reading the book in large chunks when I had the time and found it much easier going...
On to the story... It starts of weird and then decides that 'weird' is for babies and goes into night-mare mode. There is so much going on at the beginning I'm still not sure how it ended up being tied together at the end, but it was. I thought it was really well written and absolutely MESSED UP. It is also one of those books you really can't say too much about without spoiling it.
WARNING: If swear words and a lot of weird sex stuff offends you, you probably won't like this book. You're missing out, but there is quite a bit of it...
