Killer & Victim Reviews
I'm a little biased since I wrote it, but I just wanted to leave this here. If you read my book, or at least tried to read it, thank you! We only have so much time to be alive, the fact that you spent some of that reading my work...that's very nice. I hope you got something positive out of the experience. Now let's hug.
Here's a novel that has a pretty quirky way of being unique and interesting. I'm not sure I've understood everything there is to it (especially the second part), but it did make me feel like I was doing something exciting and dangerous. There are definite influences of James Joyce, Don DeLillo and David Foster Wallace to Chris Lambert's writing, although it has its own angle, its own identity if you will. It's noticeably darker and influenced by television and genre literature, too. Lambert is definitely not a copycat.While I appreciated the telescoping realities and the intimate portrays interweaved, I couldn't shake the sense that it was all foreshadowing something else and I'm not sure what that something else is. I'd love to discuss it with other readers if you guys are inclined. KILLER & VICTIM has a fantastic scope and such an original and daring setting that I've deliberately slowed down my reading in order to get the most I possibly could out of it. That's when I know a novel got to me. KILLER & VICTIM was not exactly an emotional journey, but it managed drag me into its intricate and groundbreaking structure without making me feel stupid. Only great novels can do that.
Killer & Victim by Chris Lambert reminds me in many ways of The Last Projector by David James Keaton, another challenging, genre-bending book that seems to build toward something that must happen in your own mind and not the page. Set in a vaguely dystopian near-future “crowd-sourced” city, the plot plunges into its citizens’ lives as a madman makes his way through the metropolis.
I read this in the midst of a 24in48 hour read-a-thon. It clearly needs more focused attention than I gave it. There are interesting ideas there, yet I have not gone back and given it a serious read. I see dystopia all around me, and am seeking escape.
The book teases at something much bigger to come. There's a manic style to the writing that makes for an engaging experience. It's bizarre, aloof, and riveting all at the same time. Vibrant characters and a rich setting create a lot of intrigue. I believe there is more to come, looking forward to it.
