    The targets are just a bunch of heads at the end of the day, and inside each is a big juicy brain, about two pounds of which is water. The human body is mostly water, in fact, roughly two-thirds. We are literally trash bags full of liquid, waiting to pop. There are a hundred thousand m...

    Enjoyable and yet somewhat disturbing at times book about a serial killer for hire and the girl that he abducts for unknown reasons from a restaurant that he shoots up. Dark humor and shady characters aplenty in this book that mostly focuses on their relationship, the girl growing up a...

    I'm going with 2.5 stars but I'm rounding up to three stars because I'm really not sure how I feel about this book. The first part of the book I liked more than the second. Edison is a serial killer for hire. He doesn't have real emotions and freely admits to that. Then one day he i...

    [considering 3.5 stars] Caroline Kepnes, the author of You and Hidden Bodies, subtly recommended Michael Fiegel's Blackbird on her Facebook page. It was just a little tidbit at the end of a long post about this book she was currently enjoying...subtle but intriguing. It's not schedu...

    Blackbird is a compelling story about a professional serial killer and a burger with mayonnaise. Fiegel is an accomplished author, a huge nerd, and possibly a mild-mannered sociopath. They say write what you know! I've read this book at least 3 times and I'll probably read it at lea...

    What does one say about a book as dark as this? "She is the second-shortest of her group, perhaps eight years old, with matte blue-gray eyes--steely, scared, and sad--peering through the thin curtains of pooldamp blonde hair, half of it smashed crudely behind her ears, licking her n...

    Fans of Leon the Professional will really enjoy this story. It's a gritty and shocking character study, offering a glimpse into a world best not explored, and it's deeply psychological in nature. There's also a lot of wit and dark humor, but ultimately Blackbird is a look at what it ...

    What to say about this book... Is it disturbing? Yes. Is it alarming? Yes. Would I let my mother read it? Probably not. Despite the murder and mayhem, does it wiggle itself down into your heart and soul like some weird little worm and dig up little bits of emotions you didn't know yo...

    I devoured this. It affected me deeply and it will forever be one of my favorite stories of all time. Michael Fiegel - you effing rock. ...

    I have read various editions of Blackbird over the last 10 years and it's only gotten better with age, so sort of like Helen Mirren. I am very pleased that a larger audience will finally be exposed to the Chronicles of Edison North - it's been a long time coming and has certainly been ...
