I just finished this book, and I really liked it, for some reason. It was fairly good until the twist at the very end, and the twist elevated it even more.
VERY basic summary: He hits a gypsy woman with his car and kills her. Another gypsy curses him to keep getting thinner, and thinner.
(spaces to keep spoiler from appearing in mouse-over)
I really liked the end where he brings the pie home to his wife and his daughter eats it accidentally, and out of despair then he chows down, too. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not really in favor of such brutal revenge but I honestly didn’t expect the twist. I thought he would feed it to his wife and the book would end on him saying something slightly creepy to his daughter, like “Your mother…something’s happened to her.” I totally didn’t see the twist of his daughter coming home & then him eating it out of despair. What can I say, sometimes I have sick tastes.
