"Season 2 of the show is better than the book. "
"Yeah the second book was horrible. I love the show. I can't wait for season 3. "
"I have to reply to this review, just finished reading this book to start the 3rd book. Now, I have to say I feel a bit disappointed. First of all, sorry if I'm one of those who sees it, before your read it. But, I have to agree the show had more character and was more vivid with showing some life to the characters. The book was more surrounded in the life of Forthy, then describing more about Love. Which is Joe's wife and mother of his first child. Reason I give credit to the show, and not as much for the book."
"This was honestly hard to keep up with. At times it just didn’t feel cohesive. The first book was thrilling, had me on the edge of my seat I absolutely had to read this. The book I feel tried to do world building when it came to the new setting in Los Angeles and how the people act there. I feel the pacing was also an issue as the first plot is almost completely scrapped when he finds his nice victim. It’s not entirely bad. There are some good chapters but I honestly don’t think I’ll be reading again. Too confusing and weird pacing. Not the worst but probably my least favorite In the whole series."
