disjointed and jagged with numerous sexual passages, not for my 14 year old, but perhaps I'm being naive ( )

In my opinion this book was of great ratings. It probably wouldn't be a very appropriate book for most kids because there is a lot of bad language but overall this was a very highly sophistocated book. ( )

This entertaining tour de force has one of the most intriguing characters you'll ever encounter. He's Myx Amens, survivor of two near-death experiences, owner of a photographic memory, and victim(?) of a fascinating condition known as synesthesia. For the uninitiated, that means Myx experiences the world differently from you and me--he smells colors, sees sounds, and tastes the inner workings of the minds of the people he encounters. Very, very weird.

But also very, very entertaining. These skills also come in handy when Myx goes about investigating unsolved murders like the ones that set off the plot in Miracle, Massachusetts. They are gruesome affairs, with sexual mutilation, sliced-off lips, and an imaginatively-mangled tattoo artist. Myx's super psyche gets a little help from a secret-filled puzzle box that might connect town founder Elbridge Sonnet (gotta love that name!) to the murders, but it's his almost otherworldly abilities that enable him to uncover the secret for all the world to see--or taste, or smell, depending on your own sensorial skill set.

Myx has another interesting characteristic that comes in handy: he hasn't slept for three years. It doesn't seem to bother him much, though, and it makes it possible for Diotalevi to compress the action into a pounding 42 hours. ( )
