The Talented Mr. Ripley

The Talented Mr. Ripley (Ripley #1) - Patricia Highsmith I did not like this book.

Strange to have given it 4 stars then isn't it? The reason is simple it is a good book, a very good book with excellent writing, amazing characters and heart stopping tension. The problem for me was that I really didn't like spending all that time with the characters, especially the sociopath. And for as much as I like heart stopping tension in movies, it simply doesn't work for me in books. This is definitely a "not for me" book even though it's a very good one and I DO recommend it to people who enjoy anti-heroes (seriously anti; like mentally disturbed anti) and very tense situations.
