I generally start off with what I didn't like about a book. Here, the only fault I can find is the narration itself. Williams has an odd cadence, and the pace is unnerving. Secondly his pronunications almost seemed forced, as if speaking in an easy going manner would have been hard for him. Thus, performance loses a star.
Now, Wallach does not hold back in any sense. He is graphic and caustic in his very visual descriptions of Chad's murders. In other words, this book isn't for people with weak stomachs or delicate sensibilities. A serial killer he may be, but he is not indiscriminate about it. Chad has a purpose in his actions, and Wallach skillfully makes the reader sympathetic to his character. Most especially when Chad loses pretty much everything important to him.
The book really gets dark when our boy Chad goes out looking for some real payback. He makes the Punisher look like a half blind 90 year old grandmother who is mildly annoyed. These are the scenes you won't want to read to your 10 year old!
I deeply recommend this for someone who likes black-hearted humor, twisted revenge tales, and dark twisted anti-heroes. Just don't expect to sleep for a bit afterwards, dreams may get disturbing.

We are presented with a detailed and depressing study of a young couple, Chad and Bel striving for the American Dream, but ultimately being crushed by credit card debt and student loans, while trapped in the clutches of a depressed economy. Sound familiar to anyone out there? Once things started going sour the downhill momentum increased, ensuring let down after tragedy. Comparisons are made to the practice of bankruptcy and even the return of defective products. No exceptions apply to student loans, period. In effect we are presented with a treatise on the dysfunctional aspects of the student loan bureaucracy and the cumulative affect debt can have on people under certain conditions. Between tragic loss and depression Chad lost it. Stay tuned to find out what happened to Chad and how he dealt with it. Tis a dish best served cold.
