Horrible but brilliant,

This review is from: Jimmy (Kindle Edition)
There are two disturbing stories that I've come across that have stayed with me after I've finished: the film, Eden Lake, and this book.
The story is about high school teen, Jimmy, who is a bit of an outsider. He kidnaps two girls and keeps them locked away in a hidden converted storm shelter. William Malmborg describes in detail exactly what Jimmy does to the girls for his own sick pleasure while he's holding them. I cringed with disgust and horror at times whilst reading.
What I really liked about this book was that it didn't just focus on Jimmy, but almost told the story from the perspective of other characters - his brother, girlfriend, high school bullies and the kidnapped girls. Because of this it was possible to see different sides to Jimmy and not just the sick, twisted, perverted side of him.
I managed to get this when it was free on Amazon but definitely would have paid for it, and will definitely look for more from this author.
