An outstanding book, delves into the life of the Brother of a Hungarian Count studying abroad in Paris who has quite a twisted yet believable persona. He eventually inherits the title of Count and straitens out, but eventually returns to the old hat of being demented.
I loved this book. It was compelling and lush. I loved going into this story knowing what was to come but being able to read about Lazlo's life before he became a killer. His morale was quite astonishing and is amazing to think that his character was so human and I really felt sorry for him instead of contempt. This book will break your heart in more ways than one, and though he is a cold-blooded killer at times, you will find yourself actually caring about his character. I think that is what truly carried the story, wanting to know what becomes of him. Plus the writing style is so intriguing.
