This is made exciting through the use of a thrilling story about an ex-soldier who is stalking and murdering homeless people. A sort of one-man mission to rid the streets of this "filth". When Link becomes his tartget the reader is swept along to a thrilling conclusion. This combination of suspense and social comment make for an entertaining and thought-provoking read.
"I have aquired a cat. this was my finishing touch.I can't abide the arse-licking, hair- scattering beasts myself, but you have to admite that there's something reassuring about a homewith a cat in it. A cat speaks of warmth, comfort, placid domesticity. A man who owns cat can't possibly mean anybody harm, can he?"
This probable one of the most amusing parts of the book. As shelter is a murder who owns a cat. i would recommend the book to anybody.
The author writes the book in a style that I've never met. He changes narrators often. This helps the reader to understand how both characters feel about the situation.
To conclude I feel that this book was relatively boring, but I have learned how hard it is to live on the streets.
