Third Sentence Thursday (4): Hemlock Grove by Brian McGreevy

Third Sentence Thursday (4): June 4, 2015
Hemlock Grove by Brian McGreevy

This week's novel is one that I read yesterday for the #TBRTakedown Challenge as the "One Year or More on TBR" book! If you liked the TV show, I would suggest not reading this one unless you want to be like "well I read the book and watched the TV show". It was a bit challenging to get through so take that one with a grain of salt. I know you guys have read my review, and know I was disappointed. I wanted to have a "but" there but there is no but. I was disappointed.
(1) "He lied without charity that he would and in the interim had not. He had instead taken up drink as affective novocaine." p. 37
(2) "'She says it's going to happen again the next full moon,' said Alexa." p. 95
(3) "Stated, not vehemently, but with what I believe could fairly be described as heartbreak, Roman told her to stop." p. 176
Goodread Synopsis
The body of a young girl is found mangled and murdered in the woods of Hemlock Grove, Pennsylvania, in the shadow of the abandoned Godfrey Steel mill. A manhunt ensues—though the authorities aren’t sure if it’s a man they should be looking for.

Some suspect an escapee from the White Tower, a foreboding biotech facility owned by the Godfrey family—their personal fortune and the local economy having moved on from Pittsburgh steel—where, if rumors are true, biological experiments of the most unethical kind take place. Others turn to Peter Rumancek, a Gypsy trailer-trash kid who has told impressionable high school classmates that he’s a werewolf. Or perhaps it’s Roman, the son of the late JR Godfrey, who rules the adolescent social scene with the casual arrogance of a cold-blooded aristocrat, his superior status unquestioned despite his decidedly freakish sister, Shelley, whose monstrous medical conditions belie a sweet intelligence, and his otherworldly control freak of a mother, Olivia.
