I Hunt Killers by Barry Lyga (Audiobook Review)
I absolutely loved the idea of this book, as morbid as that might sound. I could not wait to see if Lyga would be able to follow through. To put it simply . . . He did!! I grew to love the characters - the good, the bad, and the crazy. Jazz is quite the character in and of himself, carrying this story until the very end. He was brilliant and scary and vulnerable and strong. It is no wonder that I Hunt Killers made my Best of 2014 list!
I cannot close my thoughts on this book without also mentioning the narrator, Charlie Thurston. Thurston was the perfect fit for Jazz's tale, but also slipped into character so easily with the others in the story. His interpretation on Jazz's best friend, Howie was my personal favorite. I found myself sitting in parking lots, taking the long way home, and finding every excuse I could muster to listen to this book. I can only hope that Thurston continues to narrate this series.
Have you met Jasper Dent and experienced his chaotic, abnormal life? What did you think about his story?
