Review ~ Normal by Graeme Cameron


I'm not sure I knew what to expect when I started to read this book about a serial killer. I'd read a few reviews that said they had found themselves laughing during reading it which I thought seemed entirely incongruous about a book about serial killing but in reality I found that some parts of the book were funny but I'm still not sure it was funny in a 'good way'.

The story is darkly observed, almost a definition of what can be classified as normal, It's well written, quirky , totally original and quite, quite different from the usual crime thriller genre.

I read it quickly which I think is the best way to deal with it. And don't think too deeply and don't try to rationalise something which is as entirely removed from normality, as it's possible to be.

My thanks to Mira and NetGalley for the chance to read something different.
