The Killer Inside Me - Jim Thompson Lou Ford is your basic mild-mannered, small town Texan sheriff. His father was the town's well-respected doctor, he's been courting the young, All-American schoolteacher girl next door for years, and he's considered maybe a bit too nice and a little slow, even among his good ol' boy neighbors. Oh yeah, and he's also a psychotic killer who's steadily getting worse at controlling his murderous rage.

This is considered a classic, and I thought it was pretty good, but it didn't affect me as profoundly as I had expected. I just didn't find it that gripping or horrifying, and I generally like more psychological-type thrillers like this. It was a pretty quick read, though.

I also found the ending completely incomprehensible. Anyone else?
