King builds a rich interior world for even the most peripheral characters, and creates perhaps his most fully realized, richly satisfying work ever.
Reading this novel always rekindles a connection with my own childhood naïveté (something I haven’t necessarily shaken).
This contemporary noir detective novel with a fetish/BDSM twist should be on the reading list of anyone who likes crime and detective fiction.
I read Michel Faber’s UNDER THE SKIN (2000) due to my interest in reading novels that have been adapted as screenplays for films. I watched and reviewed the cinematic adaptation of this novel prior to reading it. I had significant problems with the film, but very much enjoyed the novel.
