Odyssey of the Anti-Hero
December 11th, 2014
This is a great read for fans of crime fiction, psychology, and the seventies. The book excels at avoiding cliches and formulas. The characters are interesting and the plot and outcomes are believable without being boring. The aspect of the book that I like the least was the main character. He's a little bit of a teenager throughout the book in his internal dramatization of events and, in general, isn't likeable. However, you don't hate him either, and the story
