Review: Invisible

Invisible by Pete Hautman

My rating: 2 of 5 stars

This was a quick read and mildly interesting. I liked some of the random thoughts of the obviously mentally ill main character, like him wanting to count to 180,000 by 17s, things like that kept the book entertaining and gave it a bit more personality. Outside of that, the story itself was kind of ho hum with a plot twist that was very obvious from the beginning and when revealed, it was done so matter of factly that it was almost as if the author was saying "of course you saw this coming, I meant for you to" (which I actually kind of enjoyed). I also almost liked the way it ended until it went just that one step too far and became almost cartoonish. Grab it from the library for something quick and painless to read.

There's nothing worse than a mystery whose ending you can guess right from the start. *sigh* Sorry this was a disappointment to you, Donna! But I'm glad to see you again. :) Hope you have a good week!

Hi Donna,
I appreciate your review and reading suggestion for this book.
I've enjoyed a few of Hautman's books and will check this at the library.
