My Rating: 5 Stars
Definitely a Hell of a different reading but not by all means disappointing. I always thought of Hell as the traditional "place of misery and punishment for your sins" like Dante's Inferno, but in this story, Hell becomes something else entirely. Several brutal murders happen in a place where they're common and everyone is guilty of something? Very well thought, with a great in-depth to the main character and amazing plot twits.
It's impossible not to like Thomas Fool and to really think over if we really are in control of our choices and our path in life. Is it us or someone else? In Fool's case "Is it my choice or Hell just making me think I have a choice? Is free an illusion in hell and if yes, who creates it?" This phrase isn't in the book, it's just one of the many questions Thomas Fool tries to answer and understand while looking for the responsible for all the brutal murders.
Different, macabre, but I loved every page.
Hope you find an idea for your next reading here.
