Normal isn’t normal. It’s a serial killer book from the perspective of the serial killer, so what would you expect? We follow him around as he does what he does, but to say we got a view into his mind?
The premise was intriguing, it sounded like the kind of main character one would love to hate, but it never got that far. Because even though we are so to speak inside his head, we still learn very little about what drives him. Sure, he goes around preying on young women. But why? There is a little bit of backstory, but it is too little to build an answer on. Without moving into spoilers there were a couple of events in the second half that were very unbelievable.
However, the story didn’t fail to entertain me, even though I’m left with the feeling that there could have been more and it didn’t reach it full potential.
Thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for providing me with a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review!
