Right now it's Erika for me, I think she has some real potential. It'll be interesting to see where all this goes and how it all ties in. I'm on chapter 51 right now. That's another thing I like about this book, nice short tight chapters with no silly dialog or endless boring descriptions. (yet)


I feel bad for her right now, she can't seem to live up to Victor's expectations. She does have potential though.

I finished it yesterday but couldn't access the site to post.

I thought it was fantastic!


Spoilers through last half

********************************************




I thought the peeling away of photos on Harker's wall was pretty interesting about who all he had up and searching for any philosophy to fill the void in him.

Victor is terrible. Not a villian to laugh at much. The baby rat dinner... [xx(]. He even likes to torture his food.

Erika's demise was sad but it sure was satisfying to see how it affected Victor when she said "I forgive you for this. But I will never forgive you for having made me."

I was hoping for more character development with Carson and her brother Arnie. Maybe that will happen in F-2 or DK doesn't want to resemble BTLOTM too much. I loved that book too.

You ever feel like Randall 6 when you get hold of a shopping cart? [:P]

Anyway, I thought the whole book was fantastic. I was disoriented at first with the style because I had just finished a GRRM book that is very wordy. When I started F-1 I thought I was going in fast forward. It definitely had a fast thriller movie pace to it. I can see how it would work well with a series. Too bad USA Network wanted to change it up which made Martin Scorsese and DK lose interest and withdraw from it.

I'm ready for F-2 now and just started it.
I'm inclined to believe in parallel worlds filled with dark bound Snow and Odd adventures.

I'm halfway through, it's very good. I have tried to post more but it's a pain.
