Serial, Volume Three by Lily White
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Just when I started thinking it was too crazy, it got really good!
I was at a place in this book where I thought Jude is just too psycho to be redeemable. I had no clue how this book could dig itself out of where it was going. Then all of the sudden it started to dig and it got really good. I want to tell you haw that happened and why that makes it so much better, but that would be giving the whole thing away. Suffice it to say this is the best book so far.
Jude starts out showing us his true self a bit more than he has in previous books, he talks about his childhood and his father which helps us understand him more and helps us want to cheer him on a bit. He also begins to get a bit frustrated with Ronnie, because she apparently talks too much when he gets home. Though he locks her up in a room all day by herself while he goes to work then stops on his way home to “play” with Patty. So what does he expect?
Agent Blake is a bigger jerk all the time, so I hope he gets karmic retribution at some point. I certainly feel bad for Agent Chase following him around like a puppy dog. He is the worst. His inner commentary about women uses the most misogynistic and derogatory terms.
Ronnie is a surprise in this book because she wasn’t in the last book all that much and she plays a bigger role in this book. She is so good at being the submissive and doing exactly what Jude tells her, but at one point in the book she really comes out of her shell.
Of course everything starts to come together towards the end and I was surprised at how much I was truly enjoying the book and how things were working out so far. But of course since there is one more book, it ended on a cliffhanger, like the others and this one was a doozy…
