the devil in silver

This book was about a guy who was sent to a mental institution due to a glitch within the criminal justice system. At a first glance, the book seemed to be about a monster that roamed the halls of the institution. At a second glance, it seemed to be a social commentary. It was kind of all over the place. Also, I wasn’t a huge fan of the author’s writing style. For one thing he used a lot of parenthetical expressions (while I am a huge fan of the parenthetical expression in casual writing, I don’t care for it in my literature). Brian, on the other hand, really liked this book. So, I guess we’ll just have to agree to disagree on this one.
