I will admit that through most of this book I was confused, but since the main
character seemed just as confused as I was I think that’s okay. This story
revolves around a man, James, who has some other entity permanently attached to
him thanks to his father. James has never really understood Catskinner, or what
his own purpose was, but he gets thrown into some very confusing answers as he
becomes a target for several groups of people. This book was different than
anything I have read before, and was not what I expected.
There were a lot of plot twists, and some of what seemed randomness in this book. I never
fully understood what purpose James played for all the people that were after
him, and I never fully understood what these other entities were trying to do.
That being said, I was definitely invested. I gave this book 4 stars despite my
confusion because the author actually managed to get me attached to the
characters. I found myself rooting for James and Catskinner despite what they
had done before everything went crazy. I especially liked how the author evolved
the Character of Catskinner throughout. I found myself wondering right along
with James if it was really Catskinner changing, or if it was James that had. I
will agree with another reviewer though, the ending wasn’t as satisfying as I
would have liked it to be. That was actually probably the most confusing part
for me through the whole story. If you want to read something that keeps you
guessing, this is definitely the book for you. I will add the warning that there
is quite a bit of language, and some very strange sex-like moments.
