Customer Review

VINE VOICEon 13 February 2014
I can't believe that I haven't read anything by Glen Duncan before, so pleased that a new edition has been produced and I got the opportunity to read it courtesy of the publisher through NetGalley.

'The Last Werewolf' had me hooked right from the start and once I reached the end immediately ordered the other two books in the trilogy. It works as a straight horror story and yet, as with all literary novels, there is far more to it than that. The protagonist, Jake Marlowe might be a monster but it is a very human story, about life and what we would do to survive. At the start Jake is tired of life but then something happens that changes everything. I felt ambivalent about Jake, yes what he does at the full moon is horrifying and frightening and yet I couldn't help liking him and feeling for his plight. It is definitely an adult book, and some readers may find some of the sex scenes gratuitous but they are really essential when Duncan's take on the werewolf myth is taken into account. It is intelligent, moving and written with a wonderfully dark sense of humour. There may be a lot of books around involving werewolves but nothing quite like this. I defy you to read this one and not want to go straight on to 'Talulla Rising'.
