Publisher's Summary

"The truth is I hurt people. It's what I do. It's all I do. It's all I've ever done."
He lives in your community, in a nice house with a well-tended garden. He shops in your grocery store, bumping shoulders with you and apologizing with a smile. He drives beside you on the highway, politely waving you into the lane ahead of him. What you don't know is that he has an elaborate cage built into a secret basement under his garage. And the food that he's carefully shopping for is to feed a young woman he's holding there against her will - one in a string of many, unaware of the fate that awaits her.
This is how it's been for a long time. It's normal...and it works. Perfectly. Then he meets the checkout girl from the 24-hour grocery. And now the plan, the hunts, the room...the others - he doesn't need any of them anymore. He only needs her. But just as he decides to go straight, the police start to close in. He might be able to cover his tracks except for one small problem - he still has someone trapped in his garage.
Discovering his humanity couldn't have come at a worse time.

Great choice of narrator

Would you consider the audio edition of Normal to be better than the print version?

The choice of Julian Elfer to narrate this book really gave it something else, a chilling essence that you would not get from just reading the book


Have you listened to any of Julian Elfer’s other performances? How does this one compare?

I haven't listened to any of Julian's other performance, and i guess it really depends on the story that he is telling, but, after this performance I will keep an eye/ear out for his skills!


If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Caged!


Any additional comments?

There is quite an interesting edge to this story, about how the perpetrator's opinions, thoughts and feelings change throughout his actions, but the stand out element of this audio book is the detached and slightly chilling narration by Julian Elfer. His performance really makes the story come alive.

That moment when....

... You discover an author who writes brilliantly and then find out there's only that one book Gah!!!!
Absolutely loved this book and everything about it. Alternated between liking and being horrified by the main character! My only regret is that I've finished and now have to wait patiently for the next gem from Graeme Cameron. Great narrator too.
