Waiting for me when I got back from my Christmas hols - looks interesting.

Apologies for delaying this at the start of its journey.

This book really plays with your sense of what is morally right and wrong. Is there a kind of person it is worth killing? I think most of us would agree there probably is, but would we do it? Lily’s twisted kind of logic made sense to me but none of the characters were particularly likeable and I’m sure they weren’t meant to be. It’s a gripping read with nice unexpected twists and a little bit of humour humour.

This has now arrived with me, not an author I'm familiar with, so looking forward to getting stuck in!

Sorry, this wasn't really my cup of tea! I found the characters to be unpleasant and unbelievable. I kept reading to the end to see what the plot twists were, but found them to be a bit ...meh. And the ending felt a bit lazy to me.

Well, I wasn't expecting that! When I started reading, I thought this was going to be the same old story of two strangers agreeing to kill someone in the other person's life. But it soon twists out of shape as the story takes unexpected routes and the characters get dragged into a rather complicated situation.

I did the feel the ending was a little unsatisfying and the final twist on the last page a bit easy to see coming, but otherwise I was completely intrigued by Lily and her unusual morals. I think we've all wondered on occasions whether we could get away with murder? And it seems as if she has the knack for it. None of the characters are very likeable though - even Kimball, the cop, seems a bit weird and sinister at the end - what is it with all the rude limericks? - so the title of the book is kind of apt - they are ALL 'the kind worth killing' in the end!

Not my kind of book, I'm afraid.
I'll soon pass it on to the next reader.
Thank you for sharing.

Arrived safely, thanks Arvores!

A great, twisted story with characters you love to hate, or is it hate to love? The one thing I didn't buy into though was the way Kimball acted towards the end. I can see why that was put in and where it was leading to, but I didn't find it convincing. Apart from that, I enjoyed it though.

Arrived along with Earthcaroleanne's book while I was traveling. Thank you !

Journal Entry 18 by wingIcilawing at Nantes, Pays de la Loire France on Thursday, June 20, 2019
I enjoyed this book a lot. I totally agree with earthcaroleanne, dark-draco and Fifna and since my English isn't so good I don't need to add my prose.
I read the author's notes and I'm going to follow his advice concerning the great books that inspired him.
