Aicher is one of my Twitter peeps (can a 47 year old man say "peeps"?) and I read this before I got his e-book Nightswimming (see last post) but it took me longer to write a review because I like to put more thought into reviews of novels.
You know, if they took all that time to write the thing, I can put some time into voicing my opinion.
Anyway, here's my well-thought out review of The Trouble With Being God:
"An enthralling story. A story of imperfect people trying to relate to each other in the midst of the investigation of horrific killings. Aicher's characters feel like real people with real problems (outside of a killer on the loose) and this story kept me guessing until the very end and then turned me on my head. A great read!"
I liked the book. It was his debut book way back when (2018, I think, but originally ten years earlier as this is the "Special 10th Anniversary Edition") and I can only hope that when I finally put out a novel in print it measures up to even half what this one accomplishes.
That being said, it's pretty violent and gory in places, so if that sort of thing turns you off then give it a pass.
