Well-educated and spoilt - a rich kid, fun-loving party-goer and brutal sociopath. Ruthlessly arrogant Ollie takes what he wants, when he wants it. But Ollie's going to learn, the hard way, that for every action there's a consequence, and for every bounty a price.
Granjy's terrifying eyes see Ollie like no-one else can; the blind old lady spoilt him rotten-to-the-core, and now his payment is due - Ollie will tear apart his own dark soul, and Granjy will teach him new meaning of the word 'remorse'.
When I started the book I didn't think it would go the way it would. At first I was going okay where is this going to go. Then as I continued I saw the route it was going and I was like oh wow, didn't think it was going like that.
There is talk of rape within the book just so the reader can beware. We are in first person with Ollie who is a sociopath and is spoiled by his grandmother. It is given to us pretty early on in the story that something is up with Ollie and of course it just gets worse.
The one person who has taken care of him, knows of his dark deeds and he will pay a price unlike no other. I have to say I really enjoyed the ending and how it came about. I mean we all know karma is a -----, and Ollie will get paid back for what he has done.
The author did a decent job with descriptions especially when it came to the bathroom scene and the head! It had me going oh wow. I will be reading more from this author in the future to see what other stories he has for us!
I don't normally read horror but I think the cover and title sold me on this book "Granjy's Eyes'. It is a dark and disturbing tale of one man's total selfishness and the relationship he has with his grandmother he calls Granjy. It was a bit like reading the diary of a psychopath. I couldn't put this book down and read it in one session. The category of horror is appropriate and one section of the book truly is horrifying and violent.
I think the author, Matt McAvoy does a great job of making his characters very real and believable especially the main character Ollie.
I recommend this book to anyone who loves psychological thrillers.
