Trust Your Eyes by Linwood Barclay
All i can say right now is: Oh My Goodness.
It was kinda big, about 490 pages of awesomeness. I gave it 4 out of 5 stars.
What an interesting book. Definitely knows how to leave you hanging and craving more. The characters were well developed and i didn’t feel like i was missing any details anywhere. It was definitely descriptive enough but almost to the point where it was too much, like you knew too many unnecessary things. But it was good because when they would talk about something in the book, you knew other details previously mentioned by someone else – it included everyone’s perspective, and at the end of the book everything fell into place.
Summary according to goodreads:
Thomas Kilbride is a map-obsessed schizophrenic so affected that he rarely leaves the self-imposed bastion of his bedroom. But with a computer program called Whirl360.com, he travels the world while never so much as stepping out the door. He pores over and memorizes the streets of the world. He examines every address, as well as the people who are frozen in time on his computer screen. Then he sees something that anyone else might have stumbled upon–but has not–in a street view of downtown New York City: an image in a window. An image that looks like a woman being murdered.
Thomas’s brother, Ray, takes care of him, cooking for him, dealing with the outside world on his behalf, and listening to his intricate and increasingly paranoid theories. When Thomas tells Ray what he has seen, Ray humors him with a half-hearted investigation. But Ray soon realizes he and his brother have stumbled onto a deadly conspiracy. And now they are in the crosshairs
Once i read that it was about a schizophrenic, i was instantly interested. Reading Thomas’ perspective and thoughts was definitely creepy at times, but very interesting.
I found this book very addicting and i would highly recommend it.
