Normal by Graeme Cameron ~ Book Review

Book Synopsis:

This is a love story. No, really.

He lives in your community, in a nice house with a well-tended garden. He shops in your grocery store, bumping shoulders with you as you pass him and apologizing with a smile. He drives beside you on the highway, politely waving to let you into the lane ahead of him.

What you don't know is that he has an elaborate cage built into a secret basement under his garage. And the food that he's carefully shopping for is to feed a young woman he's holding there against her will--one in a string of many, unaware of the fate that awaits her.

This is how it's been for a long time. It's normal...and it works. Perfectly.

Then he meets the checkout girl from the 24-hour grocery. And now the plan, the hunts, the room...the others. He doesn't need any of them anymore. He needs only her. One small problem--he still has someone trapped in his garage.

Discovering his humanity couldn't have come at a worse time.

This book jumps right into the story with a murder first thing. You don't even get the main characters first name at any point in the book which puts more suspense in the whole thing. This is definitely a suspense/psychological thriller! The main character is just your average everyday person shopping at the supermarket or traveling the subway except he likes to kidnap girls, cage them up and then play chase before killing them. Erica is a bit different. I don't think he wants to kill her, I honestly think he wants the company. Erica is also a strange character. They are both have very odd behaviours and almost match each other in the mental issues. The main character wants to be loved and have love. We don't find out too much back history of him but we learn a bit about his father and how he got started in killing which he thinks is normal. Or at least it is to him.

The author does a great job grabbing the readers attention from the first page and holding us on every word. I found myself wondering what will happen next, the cops are right on his heels, will he get caught or will it work out for him in the end. Such a great story. I can't wait to read more from Graeme Cameron.

I give this book a 4.5 out 5 stars!
