Since I'm random I couldn't help but think of V.C. Andrews books when I saw the cover had a cutout shape on it. It is an interesting cover but I have to admit that I'm not sure if it was the mood I was in at the time or if this is just one of those times when I'm meh about a book. While reading the first chapter I couldn't help but think of John Winchester from Supernatural since he suffered the same kind of loss but the guy in the book suffered a worse loss since he not only lost his wife but his kids as well. The guy is out for revenge.
I really wish the book had started at a different point because it just didn't make sense to me. I tend to know fairly quickly whether or not I'm going to like a book. With this one I wasn't sure what to think. I really think that some people are going to be turned off with the way it starts off because I found it confusing. I'm not sure if that was just me. Maybe this just wasn't a good time for me to read this book. There have been times when I would put a book down because it just wasn't working for me only to pick it up later and have a totally different reaction to it. I find it to be a struggle to get past the first chapter. I realize that there are times when it takes a while to get into a book but sometimes that just isn't possible which is why it is awesome that there are plenty of books out there for us to enjoy. If it isn't working try another one. I haven't closed myself off to the possibility of giving this book another try but for right now it just wasn't clicking for me. I think it might be a mixture of not being in the mood and being confused right off the bat which isn't how I want to be when I'm reading a book.
