Gruesome adult entertainment
(I received a free audible copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.)
When reviewing books I’ve listened to or read for that purpose, I usually sleep on it and start fresh in the morning with a few phrases that immediately come to mind. This one has taken two days to filter through my thoughts. I found that Number of the Beast seems to be the hardest one to review.
Not that it is a bad book and I’m searching for a way to make it seem good. On the contrary, it is a very, very good book. It is very well written, with non-static, self-aware characters.
I think it simply took my breath away. I went into this listen after having read/listen to a lengthy list of either light-hearted or YA books for the past few months. Number of the Beast reminded me that I do enjoy purely adult fiction.
That is what this is, adult and dark and disturbing. I was disturbed in ways I haven’t been since opening my very first Stephen King back in high school. If that is what you are looking for, please pick this up. Good writing is getting hard to find.
However, if you offend easy, have no interest in graphic language, sex and violence, simply walk away.
