Dastardly Bastard was somewhat of a surreal read for me, something I'm not used to from this author. All the previous books by Lorn I've read have had a real feel to them, not in the sense that it could really happen but more that I was present. This one felt different. I didn't feel connected to the characters in the way that I usually do. Don't get me wrong, the characters were well developed but I just didn't feel for them. I wasn't immersed in the events or part of the story like I am normally when reading this author. I was watching from the sidelines. I think it may be because a lot of the story was the characters reliving their memories and the manipulation of their memories, it had the effect of separating me from them and what was going on. Personally I like to feel present, which I didn't experience but that's not the fault of the book it's just my personal preference.

It's a hard one to rate as I have mixed feelings. I enjoyed the story, the pacing was consistent, the dialogue natural and the humour was great but it was more of a words on the page story than the immersive experience that I have enjoyed in all of Lorns other books. ( )
