My eye caught The Bride Collector from Ted Dekker. The name sounded familiar and i thought i had several of his books at home. So my decision was made quickly.
I was a little disappointed by the 7 pages of "readers speak out" section in the beginning of the book, but maybe that is what you need to do these days to sell a book.
I had a rough time the first 50 pages, not because of my flight but because it was a little all over the place with lot's of difficult words and difficult build up of sentences. After the initial hesitation i was happy i stuck to it. The book is about a virtuoso (yeah that's what i meant with difficult words) killer who is carving a path of death across the west, intent on killing only the most beautiful women. Special Agent Brad Raines is desperate for help and finally ask some of the patients at the Center for Wellness and Intelligence if they can help him find out who the killer is and track him down.
Everybody who is in to detectives or thrillers this is a great buy. It wasn't very expensive i think i paid $7.99 and it is small! So you can take it everywhere!
I would rate this book at an 7. It is good book for on the road, in bed or on an airplane! And of course it looks good on my bookshelf!...
Favorite passage of the book:
I am comfortable with myself, signified by the way i walk so nonchalantly wearing only sweats and a T-shirt. I am nobody. But please, please don't tell anybody.
