The Last Werewolf Author:Glen Duncan Meet Jake. A bit on the elderly side (he turns 201 in March), but otherwise in the pink of health. The nonstop sex and exercise he?s still getting probably contribute to that, as does his diet: unusual amounts of flesh and blood (at least some from friends and relatives). Jake, of course, is a werewolf, and with the death of his colleague he has... more » now become the only one of his kind. This depresses Jake to the point that he?s been contemplating suicide. Yet there are powerful forces who for very different reasons want?and have the power?to keep Jake alive.
Here is a powerful new version of the werewolf legend?mesmerizing and undeniably sexy, and with moments of violence so elegantly wrought they dazzle rather than repel. But perhaps its most remarkable achievement is to make the reader feel sympathy for a man who can only be described as a monster?and in doing so, remind us what it means to be human.

This might be the worst book ever written. Ever. I had this book on my wish list, presumably because it was recommended and others liked it. It was awful. I did not like a single character in this book. I started the book three different times because I thought I missed something but realized this book just stinks. This might be the first time I have ever used the word 'stink' in a review of a book.
