I couldn’t help but enjoy the noir-like tone. Stacks Fischer can really entertain with his raw-boned and gritty point of view.

King’s 2003 revision was badly needed. This revision sets the story in a way that the reader can far better appreciate what happens in books two and beyond.
This story starts off fast and only continues to build tension and, finally, horror. The book is really two stories, a backstory remembered and current events. But everything comes together for the main character, Malorie, at the end for a satisfying conclusion.
But it’s these travels and Omar, himself, that soon conjured up a different simile as I turned more pages: This story is like a flower.
I don’t typically write book reviews as I feel that there are others who do it better. But I just finished reading Patrick Rothfuss’ book The Name of the Wind. It’s a good read.
