Great Book

Really keeps you on the edge of your seat. I found myself reading way into the night because it was impossible to put down. It's a real page turner. It is the first one I've read but I plan to read many more.

Monster is one of those stories that captures the reader¿s attention, but doesn¿t infiltrate or spiral down enough to the reader¿s senses to entice he/she to listen or read it once again, it¿s a one time shot type of reading that never let the reader really catch a breath of wander or lost of interest. The story mainly preoccupies itself, and greatly constitutes of an intricate web of clues, lies, and deceptions, a lot of suspense, which almost always keep the reader to the edge of the next page and chapter. The story is not deep, in the sense of an elaborate scheme that carries great and heavy weight of a best seller, however is consistent within its views (and stay true to the story), and at the same time puzzling, which never miss to keep your attention focus. In addition to the book, the story is also well read. The characters are mostly distinct within their own boundaries, and some what carries the stigma of originality, except for one or two floating ones¿ not so important to the story, with meaningless weight that some how fuse themselves by borrowing personalities. Over all MONSTER has earn itself a 2 & ½ to a 3 *s. A story of the moment, Monster is one of those stories that will not survive the personal book collector¿s shelf, but will restlessly circulate the library.

    Not Recommended

    I've read a lot of mystery/crime fiction and this was one of the worst. In a word - BORING!!! There was no action until the end and even then the ending was weak. I kept waiting for it to get good and it never did. Even worse, I ordered the audio book and the person who read the book has a voice like fingernails on a chalkboard.
