The observation of everyday events in detail gives the protagonist life a a very 'mundane' feel, too 'mundane', it doesn't feel quite right and there builds the tension. The man who lives above him has a much more eventful life and the small details of the protagonist life becomes almost desperately sad by comparison. The writing is compelling, I could almost see where this story was going and I didn't want to go there anymore than the character did, but I was drawn to see the events to their conclusion, as he was. If you like a thrill and a chill factor you will love this book. If you scare easily its not for you. I found is disturbing and therefore give the author full credit for a job well done.
This is an excellent thriller! It will keep you guessing until the end.
A very well written book, draws you in, takes you with the protagonist to places you would rather not go. An interesting view of something is all to common in the papers today.
I really enjoyed this story. It was well-conceived, and quite unpredictable; I got to at least 84% through it before I started to realise how it might all end, and I found that ending quite satisfying indeed.It concerns a young man called Paul, who moves into a new flat and meets a guy called Gavin. He and Gavin become quite good friends, and spend their time drinking, smoking weed, and getting laid.It's not very well edited though, with nary a comma in site, and mixed up words all over the place (affect vs. effect, stuff like that). It's also written in slang, which is completely understandable, because the narrator is British, but there were times when I didn't completely understand what certain things meant... which was compounded by the aforementioned confused words and lack of punctuation because I ALSO didn't immediately get what was intentional, and what was an error.That being said, it's a great psychological thriller, and reminds me somewhat of Fight Club (oh dear, I hope THAT little bombshell doesn't give away too much for you). If you like that sort of thing, you're sure to like Saffron!
