Blackbird by Michael Fiegel

Blackbird

A dark, biting literary debut for fans of Caroline Kepnes following the unlikely bond between two sociopaths―and the destruction left in their wake.“When I was eight years old, I was abducted from a fast food restaurant by a man who took me, in all likelihood, because of a small splotch of mayonnaise on his hamburger. And so I believe in neither free will nor predeterminat...

Blackbird Reviews

  • Emily Hemenway
    What to say about this book... Is it disturbing? Yes. Is it alarming? Yes. Would I let my mother read it? Probably not. Despite the murder and mayhem, does it wiggle itself down into your heart and soul like some weird little worm and dig up little bits of emotions you didn't know you had? Most defi...

    I have read various editions of Blackbird over the last 10 years and it's only gotten better with age, so sort of like Helen Mirren. I am very pleased that a larger audience will finally be exposed to the Chronicles of Edison North - it's been a long time coming and has certainly been worth the wait...

    [considering 3.5 stars]Caroline Kepnes, the author of You and Hidden Bodies, subtly recommended Michael Fiegel's Blackbird on her Facebook page. It was just a little tidbit at the end of a long post about this book she was currently enjoying...subtle but intriguing. It's not scheduled for release un...

Edison is a serial killer for hire. He doesn't have real emotions and freely admits to that. Then one day he is at a restaurant ...

    The targets are just a bunch of heads at the end of the day, and inside each is a big juicy brain, about two pounds of which is water. The human body is mostly water, in fact, roughly two-thirds. We are literally trash bags full of liquid, waiting to pop. There are a hundred thousand miles of blood ...

    Fans of Leon the Professional will really enjoy this story. It's a gritty and shocking character study, offering a glimpse into a world best not explored, and it's deeply psychological in nature. There's also a lot of wit and dark humor, but ultimately Blackbird is a look at what it means to be evil...

    This was not an easy read for me. Aside from the fact that one must pay attention or miss out on some important information, this book alternately attracted and repelled me. I had to put it down many times. I had to pick it back up many times.Of all my armchair journeys, I have never yet spent one i...

    It started with mayonnaise. BLACKBIRD is a tale about a domestic terrorist that abducted a child and trained her to be like him. You’ll probably expect a lot of blood and guts, and you’ll get that. What you probably won’t expect is how human this book is. That said, Michael Fiesel did...

    This review can also be found here!DNF at 55%The whole time I read this, it felt like I could just set it down and forget about it. And, I did that, actually. Each day, I’d put it down after reading the page number I needed. The next day, I’d pick it up, vaguely remembering what happened.E...
