The book of human skin is a large volume with many pages of villainy writ upon it. There are people who are a disease, you know. 13 May, 1784, Venice: Minguillo Fasan, heir to the decaying, gothic Palazzo Espagnol, is born. Yet Minguillo is no ordinary child: he is strange, devious and all those who come near him are fearful. Twelve years later Minguillo is faced with an unexpected threat to his inheritance: a newborn sister, Marcella. His untempered jealousy will condemn his sister to a series of fates as a cripple, a madwoman and a nun. But in his insatiable quest to destroy her, he may have underestimated his sister's ferocious determination, and her unlikely allies who will go to extraordinary lengths to save her...

The Book of Human Skin -

The most enjoyable book I have read in a long while. Clever, witty, different, brilliant. I wish I hadn't read it so that I could read it all over again! Once in a blue moon a brilliant book comes along. This is one of them. Written in the form of diaries from the perspectives of different characters, Minguillo is so incredibly evil you cant help but root for him, its just excellent -highly recommended - give it a go!

"Brilliant" -

It's ages since I enjoyed a book this much - couldn't put it down and didn't want it to finish. An unusual story, full of twists and turns. An exceptional novel.

"An absolute must" -

This is one of the best books I have read in a long time. It is a fascinating portrait of a sociopath and those around him, told beautifully with a distinctive style which captures the imagination and draws you in. I did not want to finish reading this book! I cannot recommend it highly enough.
