Blurb; A vacuum salesman by day, the introvert lives a quiet life alone with his dog until a work relationship and a dark secret from his past team up to create an uncomfortable imbalance in his otherwise ordered life, one that soon finds him squarely at the center of a murder investigation. With his thoughts continually urging him to make people “red and open” and to “achieve it” with his girlfriend Donna, what follows is a sometimes brutal, oftentimes hilarious, and absurdist account of the life of one very anti-social and unexpected anti-hero.
My Review; This is a brilliant short story at roughly 160 pages. Not what I was expecting at all. A few words to describe this story would be funny (in parts), wierd and twisted.
It took me a while to understand the main character of this story as he has a very unique personality I have never come accross before. We also never learn of his name… I wierdly liked the main character, I actually liked him even after everything that happened. Strange?
Brilliantly written, he’s quite a clever character really when you think about it. Doesn’t talk much but when he does he makes sure what he says is correct and punctual. A cute little ending to round off the story.. I enjoyed it. A good read. Something different.
I can’t wait to read what he gets up to in the sequal! A well deserved four stars from me. Highly recommend. Perfect for a quick read.
