The Wasp Factory

The Wasp FactoryThe ending of this book is almost unrelated to anything that happens within the plot, it’s almost as if the author just changed his mind in the last chapter and did the first random thing that came to his mind. Still a really cool and entertaining study on a psychopathic mind.

Positive: Negative:
Sarcastic, eloquent prose Plot is just a compilation of random disturbing set-pieces while the protagonist waits for his brother to return
Mysterious, disturbing atmosphere
Ending twist comes out of nowhere and is not even related to the main question raised by the plot up until then
Interesting, extremely disturbing protagonist
Enlightening on psychopathy
