An ingeniously nasty exercise reminiscent of Vladimir Nabokov and Patricia Highsmith - John Dugdale, Sunday Times This book is an experiment. We're experimenting together. You are part of the experiment, if you'll agree to it. Normally I don't let my subjects choose to be subjects. If you know you're being watched, you cease to be you. But I want you to read this. I wrote it for you. This magnetic book pulls you in its wake even as you resist its force. Sometimes you don't want to know what's next...… (mer)

“Who am I? The word that many would apply to me would be stalker, but applying doesn’t make it so. I’d say instead that I practise people studies.”

Unfortunately, I just could not gel with this book. At only 225 pages it was very short yet still took just over 2 weeks to read. As a stalker book, this had the elements of ‘You’, but did not live up to the expectation. The characters were not engaging, there was no tension or back-story, and the ending was just that, a random abrupt stop without any outcome.

Whilst seeing into the mind of this unnamed misogynist stalker was interesting, I just could not find him believable. What should have been a thrilling ‘Dexter’ style murder was more of a gloss-over with the dismemberment being far too easy. Whilst I haven’t killed and disposed of anyone, I imagine it would be a tricky task to undertake, especially on the first try.

Finally, the writing style was annoying. The popular back-and-forth element did not work on this occasion, most likely as there was a lack of quotation marks making it difficult to know who was ‘talking’. The book was written as a type of diary by the stalker, yet comments and observations were made where he would not have been privy to that information. I’m confused as to whether this was all just his imaginings and how much of it was accurate? Either way I won’t be losing sleep trying to figure this out. ( )
