˝S toplim je napitkom u jednoj, a pepeljarom u drugoj ruci sjeo za stol, okrenut prema prozoru koji je gledao prema gradu. Taj mu je kutak bio najdraži dio u stanu. Prozor je bio ogroman i uvijek je imao dobar pogled na sve što se događa u gradu koji je već godinama smatrao svojim.˝ Andrea Tomić, Grad Zvijeri
Here’s another book I didn’t love nor did I hate. First of I have to say I liked Okidač boje pepela a little bit more. Which is a book somewhat connected to this one and it’s written by a Croatian writer Andrea Tomić.
I liked the main character Nick the most, and even though his personality’s twisted and sick we got to see him in a slightly different light in this book. The other main character Annabel, I didn’t like that much. I couldn’t connect to her at all, she was just there, I know she’s important to the story, but she needed to be more interesting in my opinion. Also her connection to her brother and what exactly happened to them needed to be explained more.
It is a quick read and I must say I did in fact breeze through it and it got me hooked. The main plot twists are interesting and surprising, but I also needed more of that and more action too. The ending is what I wanted it to be, I didn’t expect it to be executed like that and it surprised me and I also liked it. It leaves us wondering which is ok.
I’m sad I didn’t like this book as much as I hoped I would, maybe this isn’t my genre or something. Or I’m just too used to plot twist hurricane by now. I know Andrea has a lot of potential and I love her writing and I’ll support her no matter what she writes in the future. Can’t wait to see what’s next.
Glad Nick stayed a monster, it just wouldn’t be right if he changed.
