#84: The Serpent's Bite - Warren Adler (With Giveaway)

(Affiliate link)

''How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child'' --King Lear, William Shakespeare This famed quote by William Shakespeare finds its modern meaning in this taut, fast-paced, remarkable novel by renowned author Warren Adler. The Serpent's Bite will take you on a frightening horse trek through the far reaches of the Yellowstone wilderness that turns a father s quest to deal with parental guilt and reunite with his two adult children into a nightmare of lust, betrayal, entrapment, and death. Beyond the revelations of dark family secrets, readers will discover how an obsession for celebrity and blind ambition can distort familial love and turn a beloved child into a grotesque monster. Courtney Temple is sure to be judged as one of those most evil women in fiction, alongside the likes of Lady Macbeth, Medea, and the Wicked Witch of the West. Adler's latest novel takes its place next to the iconic The War of the Roses, in which the author exposed the true nature of marital dysfunction.

MY OPINION:
First I have to say I enjoyed both The War of the Roses and The Tie That Binds, but the dark nature of the latter attracted me more. This book is dark and twisted like it, but in a different way.
I loved 99% of it.
It was the very last page I hated. Yup. Total WTF!!
So I will keep in my memory the 99% and make my own last page....
Suspense seekers that like little sick and demented twists, this is for you....

4.5/5

  1. I didn't see either of them. I saw some trailers for War of the Roses but it wasn't really my cup of tea at the time. This book seems more up my alley. Thanks.

How Reading Helps Your Brain

The brain is one of the most complex biological structures that scientists and doctors have ever encountered. It is like a machine that runs non-stop that has the computing power to be able to make very complex decisions and experience unexplainable phenomena like emotions.
