    I debated for a while if Maximum City was the book that disgusted me the most, but then for the most part it was a great read. BUt I agree with you on that.

    Thanks for visiting my blog and yeah I miss out on discussing Sherlock Holmes with people I know here in the US.

    Actually I felt disgusted was a strong word. I really loved the book, but it disgusted me in the sense that, it gave me this peek into a side of human beings that I find disgusting. The kind of people who do not think twice before killing, the manipulative, self centered, greedy, lowlife’s who dot the earth. Thanks for stopping by..
