Fe He takes her back to his room and wakes the next morning in a bathtub full of blood and ice missing a kidneyDragging himself from a hospital bed Phineas discovers he wants to be with Jude like a hunger and he wants to find her and ki. So I finished this book days ago and certain scenes have begun to fade I really should stick to writing reviews the day after I finish a book I try to include at least one night's sleep between finishing and reviewing but this has been an overly hectic week all around So like I said a certain amount of fading has happened yet how I felt while reading is still pretty strong and I really have only good things to say in that area The first chapter sucked me in aroused my interest The idea of waking up in a bathtub of ice after having a kideny stolen is one of those scenarios that have always interested me whether or not it is just an urban myth or has in fact happened to people I would not be surprised either way Organ thieves are just cool I probably sound like a total nutt job but this is fiction not real life so I tend to gravitate towards disturbed stories Above all else and why I loved this book so much is that Baer managed to include some of my favorite story traits which I am currently very keen to explore First he includes an unreliable narrator As a reader I love being unsure as to what exactly is happening whether or not what I just read was in the character's head It takes personal perspective and twists it further than is normal Throw in some seriously depressing memories maybe a personality disorder and some drug use and you have what I consider excellent potential something that is likely to keep me on my toes Second throw in a love story But this is not storybook romance This is bloody noir love love that only the people involved in the relationship seem to comprehend To the rest of the world it just looks like some messed up alternate love universe I did not think of this until right now but Kiss Me Judas highly resembles Tarantino's film True Romance I'm ok with that since I was not thinking of it while reading If I had then I'd be slightly annoyed but the book is uniue I must point out that my noir experience is lacking I love the settings and characters for the most part but I have found certain author voices to be bland Not in this case I loved reading Baer His writing was smooth and at times surreal turning into depressing and violent prose He is an author who pairs words oddly but beautifully and I am a fan of his minimalist style There were some deeply disturning scenes a plus in my opinion as I hate being bored I was surprised lots of little shocks here and there The first half was also uite funny at times in a dark humor kind of way My initital rating was 5 stars but I've lowered it slightly due to the ending The entire book was rather along the lines of POW and the ending was of a mini 'pow' Everything peetered but I have high hopes for book 2 Chantilly, guimauve et chocolat
