The Page Sage

The Page Sage was started because I love reading and writing- it just seemed like the natural way to combine my two passions. It's where I discuss books I love and some I don't, as well as everything from book covers to feminist literature.

I Hunt Killers

I Hunt Killers - The Page SageI Hunt Killers is completely, if morbidly, fascinating. I'm not going to lie, I find serial killers interesting in a disturbing, frightening sort of way, so this book was right up my alley. Lyga lets the reader see right into the mind of a sociopath, which is a wacked-out place to be, to put it plainly.Jasper is a great narrator. He's utterly torn up inside from his more than unique upbringing, and his struggle to prove that he is not his father makes him a sympathetic character. Not to say that Jasper doesn't have his issues. I think it shows how skilled Lyga is as a writer that even when Jazz is thinking like a serial killer, the reader still feels empathy for him.I was happily surprised by how much I loved his best friend, Howie, and his girlfriend, Connie. Howie is quirky and fun and his humor made me roll my eyes a few times (in a good way). Connie on the other hand is sassy, confident, and really cool. She does her best to keep Jazz in line, doesn't let him whine, and is all around awesome. Mystery and suspense are both present, along with a decent amount of blood. Some points had me turning pages as fast as I could. And the ending... there is a cliffhanger. I wasn't aware that this is the first in a series when I read it, but I am anxiously awaiting more of Jasper Dent's story!Find more reviews at The Page Sage
