In many ways, Davis' Breaking Point felt like a reimagining of De Niro's
role in Taxi Driver. It's also a sharp comment on where people end up
in this distorted economy in a downward spiral where there's nothing
left and nothing to look forward to. It's a noir-ish descent into nihilism.
It's a story of a man at the end of his rope, isolated, desperate, and
finds that his answer is in random and not so random killings. The
main character's life has been destroyed by drinking, unemployment,
the bitter end of a marriage, the custody disputes, and his future as a
fast food worker.
There's also a switch in narrative from the point of view of one of the
officers chasing the killer.
This book is well written, easy-to-read and quite engaging. Davis talks
about tough subjects with a dose of irony and humor and it works
quite well. This is certainly a writer to keep an eye on.

This is my newest Kindle Serial. I am in the process of reading the first episode. It's a little hard to get into. the lead character seems to have some mental illness issues.
Just finished the first episode. This might end up being ok. I believe I just need to get use to this authors writing style. I am curious to see what happens next.

episode 2. Still not too sure about this book. I am going to continue it just because there are a few humorous moments and the story seems to be going somewhere interesting. It is a little raw though. The language and the adult situations. There is entirely too much detail at times. You really dont need to tell what kind of frozen dinner you are making and everything that is contained in that frozen dinner as well as the temperature it is to be cooked on. Just say the man threw a frozen dinner in the oven then ate. The same message will be given.

episode 3. improving. left off at a cliffhanger of course. ( )
