Wow, if the rest of the books that Mr. Montes writes turn out like this, than, I can't wait. I grabbed this book and started reading it. Warning: This book is addicting. I finished it in a matter of a few hours. Although, sleep was delayed as I started this book before going to bed. I could not stop reading. The quiet ones do you have to watch out for.

This is not one of those psychological thrillers were it creeps up on you and messes with your mind. No, it is one of those books where you are instantly hooked by what you are reading. It might even seem a little unbelievable but you can't stop reading as you are intrigued and want to see how it all plays out. Are there really Perfect Days? Oh and did I mention that this book had a feel of Misery. ( )

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0143129996, Paperback)

An Amazon Best Book of February 2016: Brazilian medical student Teo Avelar is not your standard protagonist: for starters, he lives with his mother and his best friend is a cadaver. He is also a psychopath, with no (living) friends, who falls for an aspiring screenplay writer who is his polar opposite. Clarice is bombastic and passionate, while Teo comports himself with a quiet stoicism. After he falls for her, he quickly kidnaps Clarice—with the idea that she only needs time to fall for him—and the wheels are set in motion for Montes’ odd, macabre, fast-paced, twisted, and twisty novel. Is it for everyone? Not at all. But if you’ve ever wondered what Humbert Humbert would look like in modern times, you might want to pick up this short, dark, kind of sick, alternately propelling and repellant book. In its own creepy way, it’s kind of perfect. -- Chris Schluep
