Martin Misunderstood by Karin Slaughter
18 February, 2010 by Wulf Forrester-Barker
This book is refreshingly short; at least you only waste about 150 pages of reading time compared to the longer works Slaughter normally delivers. I found the writing style very simple and wondered for a while if it was a new departure for the author, venturing into fiction for the teenage market. However, some explicitly detailed scenes of sex and violence left me doubting that conclusion.
Perhaps it was a project to write a story without any attractive characters or a proper ending. If so, it succeeded in those goals but fails to rise to any loftier ambitions.
