Lucy's Monster tells the story of a leading Hollywood actress with the world at her feet and her subsequent slide into mental breakdown - with catastrophic consequences. It is a very interesting idea for a story and the blurb on the back cover really drew my attention, with its promise that this was unlike anything I'd ever read. The author certainly does have a unique style, but overall I didn't find it to be particularly well-written. The style was somewhat annoying, and in places the book felt overwritten. It read like a first draft that had a lot of promise but needed a rewrite. There were also quite a lot of errors which a good edit would have sorted out - for example, one page a character leaves the table leaving his food untouched ... turn the page and there is a reference to his empty plate.

Overall, strong plot, good characters, but somewhat let down by the writing. Worth reading if you like a pacy story, but if you are looking for strong writing this won't be for you. ( )
