  1. Sorry you didn’t like the book, but thanks for giving it a try. The character isn’t necessarily supposed to be immediately likable, and the moral compass, like the art, is supposed to be shades of gray. I’m a guy – there was confusion in your review as to my gender – and it is written as diary entries in an 18 year old girl’s diary. If you want any more info on me, my website has my bio.

    Thanks for trying!

  2. Matt Adler says:

    I wasn’t on the podcast this week, but I liked the book!

  3. Aw, thank you! I wasn’t upset or anything. It’s not going to be for everybody.

  4. Matt Adler says:

    Since I didn’t have a chance this week to chime in with my two bits… the thing I liked about it particularly (and I hope this doesn’t sound TOO crazy) is that I think most of us have had those moments where we’ve had an awful fantasy about someone who has pissed us off. And the interesting thing about Zoey is that she’s just like us, except that for her, the line between fantasy and reality is blurred, and she doesn’t have that “off-switch” that says “No. That would be a BAD thing to do.” So you took a serial killer and made her relatable, which I think is an impressive feat.

    Then again, I’m also the guy who thinks Rorschach is the easiest to identify with in Watchmen, so maybe it says more about me ;)

  5. Much appreciated! I could tell listening that they aren’t the target audience. Like I said, it won’t be for everybody. Glad you liked it!

  6. Jaydotdee says:

    Out of curiosity, who is the target audience?

  7. Matt Adler says:

    Can’t speak to that directly, obviously, but I’d recommend it to anyone who’s a fan of more introspective, psychological books.

  8. I’d agree with Matt. It’s a character-over-action book. Terry Moore fans have liked it, for example. I don’t exactly write with a specific person or demographic in mind. I just tell the kinds of stories I enjoy reading.
