James Ozryck has a monster in his head.
All of his life the entity that he calls Catskinner has made him a fugitive, afraid to get too close to anyone, afraid to stay in one place for too long. Catskinner kills, without compassion and without warning, and is very good at it.
Now James has learned that Catskinner is not the only monster in the world, a world that has suddenly become a far stranger and more dangerous place than he imagined. In order to survive he will have to become something more than a monster, he will have to learn what it means to be human.
You first meet James who seems to be your everyday nutjob with an alter ego named Catskinner that loves nothing more than the thrill of the kill.
He works in a faux electronic store for a man named Vincent who for whatever the case may be, Vincent lives like a snowman in perpetual cold climates.
This book is VERY descriptive. You get lost easily within the spine of this wonderful story and quickly lose track of not only time but the fact that you yourself are not a part of the story.
I was quite intrigued during the mass amount of time James/Catskinner stood staring at the wall.
This book is full of action and quirky quotes. It will definitely keep you wanting more.
Catskinner's book is a genre of its own fitting into neither of the genres it's tagged for.
If you like amazingly detailed fight scenes and the strange and unusual, this book is for you.
