Reading progress update: I've read 42 out of 294 pages.

The Beast Must Die - Nicholas Blake

Now, this! This, friends, is more like it! 

 

I started reading before I set out for work this morning, and have just read a few more pages over lunch. 

 

I have hunches of where the story might be going and what twists and turns might pop up but not in a way that makes this a boring read. On the contrary, the narrator addressing the "hypothetical" reader by way of the diary is very engaging...and somehow I get the distinct feeling we are being addressed by a

psychopath

(show spoiler)

, but that is for the story to reveal. or not, as the case may be. It does make the reading experience quite unsettling, tho. I like it.
