Jimmie was a quiet man that tended to be walked over, either by his ex-wife or his bosses. A man not to draw attention to himself due to his speech impediment. Jimmie was meticulous in his home life and with his collection and I think that was why he had not got caught. He was not a character that I disliked, even though I know what he did, I did wonder whether if he had a better childhood would he have been different. This question is probably asked about the majority of serial killers.
Detective Florel Ross was a woman on a mission. Pushed on to be the best of the best, she did not want any other family to go through what her family went through when her twin sister was abducted. Not liked by her colleagues, she had no social life and was very focused.
The way the author wrote this book was a lot different to other books I have read about serial killers. The majority of the book was written as a journal either by Jimmie or Florel, this told the story from a different perspective. The story concentrated on the whys and the how’s, but not the actual killings. Jimmie wrote in detail about each of his Things, telling their story through his journal and the newspaper cuttings he also collected. Florel’s journal was her research into tracking him down. What I enjoyed was they both showed some of the same characteristics which enforced my view that it was their upbringing that took them down their path. The story flowed smoothly making it a quick read and it was just like you were following this story via a news channel. My only complaint was that the ending was abrupt and I had to flick back a few pages to see if I had missed anything. However, reading on after the story there will be book 2 so I will be able to know whether Florel caught the Ice Cream killer.
The story is told between two peoples view points, the killer and a police detective and it was done in a way which was like reading a journal of theirs, it was a unique twist to the book.
I loved the story as a whole, i only haven't given it 5 stars as there are a few lists in the book and i found myself skipping over those parts but the main chapters in the story i absolutely loved and i will be reading the second book straight after as i cannot wait to hear more about this killer.
Is it strange that i actually quite like him?
Also just have to point out i love the cover.
The story is told through two points of view. Jimmie the serial killer and Florel the FBI Agent trying to catch him. Jimmie is a serial killer who collects things- human bodies.
So looking forward to reading more about these two characters.
The book is written in a very interesting way, party diary, part case notes and in dual POV. I was hooked from the first page and could feel the character Jimmie, getting under my skin.
It is a real page turner and if it hadn't been for other commitments, I would have finished this book in one sitting. (A bit like my favourite ice cream)
The author has created something very unique within the pages of 'Just Things'. As I was reading, I found myself really thinking about the human condition and what makes us all tick.
A very thought provoking read in my opinion, and I look forward to the next book in the series; which I understand will be released soon.
There is nothing about this book I didn't love. It reminded me of something my dad used to tell me when I was growing up. The real monsters are the ones hidden in plain site. Take notice, you never know who is out there with you.
