I requested a copy of this book and I was so excited about reading it. A woman who kills and eats her husband? Amazing reviews? The 'female American Psycho'? It sounded like a book I would really enjoy. We've all heard the story where the woman hits her husband over the head with a frozen leg of lamb then serves the lamb to the police man- I was expecting a book with humour, maybe a little gore and horror, and several insights into the mind of a murderer.
This book didn't give me any of that. What I was present with was a very one dimensional character, with no reasoning or logic to what she did despite being described as 'pragmatic' throughout the book. I'm not the only one, Char didn't rate it much either.
I wouldn't have kept reading if I hadn't requested it for review and I have to give it one star just because of how hard it was for me to finish.
