Apr 01, Regan rated it really liked it. I can't remember if I saw the movie or read the book first, probably saw the movie.
It's been years since I did either and I stumbled across the book on the shelf and wondered if I would still like it. I recall liking this novel the first time I read it and liking the movie, too, although that could be as much that I like Owen Wilson as anything.
I'm very drawn to the Zen-pacing of this piece. You have to slow down when you read it because the primary character a proantagonist, sort of, he's bot I can't remember if I saw the movie or read the book first, probably saw the movie.
You have to slow down when you read it because the primary character a proantagonist, sort of, he's both is slow, measured, paced.
I like the non-judgmental take, too, that you're left to come to your own conclusions and responses. I can't say this is the best of the best I've ever read but I can say that I quite enjoyed it and will keep it on my shelf for future returns.
If you need your moral attitude spelled out for you this isn't the book for you, but if you enjoy an interesting take on being a serial killer this is a pretty intruiging book.
Sep 09, Bagtree rated it it was ok. Overall, this book was okay and I don't have many comments to make.
However, there is one single batfuck psycho line early on that I really need to share with as many people as possible: "She was helpless because I had showed her my smile, which is like a charming hamster a boy might keep in his pocket and take out only to show on a special occasion to a special friend" 4.
Because that's how you seduce people, you know. With pocket hamsters. May 26, Susan rated it did not like it.
Terrible writing. It drags and drones and induces sleep. Jun 01, Kate rated it really liked it Shelves: , age-adult. Interesting book about a serial killer The movie version was strange--with a slew of comedy actors like Owen Wilson, Jeanine Garafola--for a fairly dark and somber story.
May 13, Paul Billadeau rated it it was ok. Fairly well written but gives in to a get away with murders story, no up lift in this book. Mar 21, Jon rated it it was amazing.
I read this after watching the movie and was glad for it. Had I seen the movie after reading, it would have been an utter disappointment.
The book has so many more layers too it, is so much darker than the movie. In the book, however, Vann is in fact a deeply disturbed schizophrenic, whose lack of ability to feel emotions on any real depth provide him with the ability to obey I read this after watching the movie and was glad for it.
In the book, however, Vann is in fact a deeply disturbed schizophrenic, whose lack of ability to feel emotions on any real depth provide him with the ability to obey the voices that tell him who to kill.
I absolutely loved the description of the voices he heard, especially the rivers at the beginning of the book. We get the impression that Vann isn't just a petty criminal.
Vann knows that the police will eventually tie the murders to him. While looking in the mirror, he pulls hairs off his jacket and puts them in an envelope on which he writes 'FERRiN'.
Jane is found dead from a blow to the back of the head. The police suspect Doug, but Vann is worried that the increased scrutiny from another murder will lead the police to him.
During a date with Ferrin, he tries to initiate sex by assaulting her. She is terrified, and Vann leaves. The next day, the police arrest Doug for Jane's murder.
Vann packs his things. Before he leaves town, he puts his postal uniform and the envelope marked "FERRiN", containing the sample of his hair, in a mailbox.
The film ends as he drives on the highway, saying that he wants to lead a more regular life once he gets to wherever he is going. He is pursued by a cop who had earlier approached him on the beach.
After taking a good look with her spotlight, she smiles at him and takes the right fork in the road, while Vann takes the left.
Roger Ebert called it "a psychological thriller of uncommon power maybe because it's so quiet and devious". In praising the film, Andrew Sarris writing for the New York Observer said: "A surging undercurrent of black comedy drives us out to sea without ever breaking to the surface with glib psychological or sociological explanations.
We cannot laugh out loud, nor can we feel any grief". Glenn Lovell described the film as "an assured blend of Camus and Hitch 's small-town classic, Shadow of a Doubt " in his Variety review.
