Blueeyed Boy - Joanne Harris

'Once there was a widow with three sons, and their names were Black, Brown and Blue. Black was the eldest; moody and aggressive. Brown was the middle child, timid and dull. But Blue was his mother's favourite. And he was a murderer.'
Blueeyedboy is the brilliant new novel from Joanne Harris: a dark and intricately plotted tale of a poisonously dysfunctional family, a blind child prodigy, and a serial murderer who is not who he seems.
Told through posts on a Web journal called badguysrock, this is a thriller that makes creative use of all the multiple personalities, disguise and mind games that are offered by playing out a life on the Internet.

Comment: Once again, the author surprised with the interesting, misterious plot. I never imagined who the vilan actually is.
I think this story is a bit confusing sometimes but that doesn't mean it doesn't grab you right away. I enjoyed reading it a lot.
Lately the books by this author are more suspense than fiction, but it's a unique voice and I don't recall anyone else writing like this, so, I'll keep reading her.
