    Description

    In this quirky debut novel from author Matthew Dicks, career criminal Martin uses his OCD to pilfer items from his victims' houses without being discovered. It helps that he only takes things the homeowner would never notice are missing - like a roll of toilet paper or a bottle of maple syrup. Martin has spent so much time snooping through homes he feels like he knows the owners, but when he starts meddling in their personal lives, his precise world turns to haos.

    Sheldon Cooper as a Thief!

    OCD and thievery combined. There were a few times the story could have gone a bit faster - but thoroughness demanded he move carefully. This book stuck with me.

    Parrot Sketch Partially Included

    Far from being tedious, I found Martin's explanation of his career and techniques appropriate and extremely practical. His thoughts are what drive his actions and therefore the plot.
    Many of the other characters are thinly developed, but that fits as well since we can only see the aspects of other people that Martin recognizes.
    To some extent, Martin may do for obsessive compulsives what Dexter Morgan did for sociopaths: pull back the curtain a little to show how their minds work and make them more personable.
    I was a little disappointed and confused when the parrot was introduced and that subplot began to develop only to be left hanging. Nothing ever comes of it.

    Weird, unexpected story

    A crazy story with a mildly early ending. I really could have used one more chapter!!

    cool concept

    A few exciting moments in a lot of boring detail.

    Too much detail even though a good story. I don’t think we need every single moment accounted for to get the idea. Just okay.

    What a terrific story!

    I thought this book was going to be a little tedious and too detailed when I first started, but all of the detail made for a fantastic world to step into. Even with such a satisfying ending, I want to know more about what happened in this "world" after the book ended. I wish I could read it again without knowing what happens.

    Slow yet interesting story

    The plot is a slow build that I at first struggled to get through. I eventually was able to get interested when I was about half way through.

    Magical

    The perfect blend of family and the bonds that tie us together, personal flaws, reality, and just a touch of magic. I loved it.

    amazing

    Probably my favorite book of all time. It's impossible to not fall in love with Martin the main character.

    Decent Content Missing

    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    It would have to be a short film.

    Any additional comments?

    Dicks' quirky main character makes for an interesting premise, but he fails to deliver comparable content. This book turned out to be nine hours of patiently waiting for the plot to pickup.
