The executor, Jesse Kellerman. p. cm. eISBN : 978-1-101-18615-2. Jetta in good condition, below Blue Book.

The executor, Jesse Kellerman. I say appeared to because the copy was nigh on unintelligible and the person who’d written it quite plainly delusional. Anyone can advertise in the Crimson.

The newest book from Jesse Kellerman is a very effective psychological suspense novel. The executor is an amazing book. Screw nail biting, this book made me want to gnaw my hands off. Kellerman has a rare ability to weave a story in a way that makes you feel so uncomfortable and nervous that it takes over your life. Luckily the book reads very quickly and you can get back to normal in a day or two. His writing is addictive.

What choice did I have? I was afraid of what Eric would say to the police, and Alma’s vehemence, however puzzling, was irrefutable hat if I wasn’t, Eric would not be so stupid as to act now. One seldom truly believes that the worst will happen. Before I left I apologized again. She winked forgiveness. Friends must be honest with each other, mustn’t they?. I told her I would call her once I touched down. Do not concern yourself with me, she said. Put me out of your mind.

A masterful, inventive thriller from a remarkably assured and always surprising young writer. I would recommend that readers check out his first book, "Sunstroke," for a great read, his second book, "The Genius," for the read of their life, and maybe then if there's nothing else on their biblio plate, check out "The Executor.

My first book by Jesse Kellerman and cannot wait to read his previous ones! I loved everything about it: the plot, the well-defined characters as well as the depiction of the darkness of the human soul that permeates the entire story. I ended up caring deeply for Joseph even if he does commit unspeakable acts. Honestly, I rooted for him in spite of such acts and wanted him to be okay! This book is great entertainment and will leave you thinking about it way after turning the last page. Maybe it was the reader I listened to this book rather than reading the book.

A masterful, inventive thriller from a remarkably assured and always surprising young writer. Perpetual graduate student Joseph Geist is at his wit's end. Recently kicked out of their shared apartment by his girlfriend, he's left with little more than a half bust of Nietzsche's head and the realization that he's homeless and unemployed. He's hit a dead end on his dissertation; his funding has been cut off. He doesn't even have a phone. Desperate for some source of income, he searches the local newspaper and finds a curious ad: CONVERSATIONALIST SOUGHT. SERIOUS APPLICANTS ONLY. PLEASE CALL 617-XXX-XXXX BETWEEN SEVEN A.M. AND TWO P.M. NO SOLICITORS. And so Joseph meets Alma Spielman: a woman who, with her old-world ways and razor-sharp mind, is his intellectual soul mate. How is he to know that what seems to be the best decision of his life is the one that seals his fate?

When I looked at the ratings for 62 previous reviews, it is clear that The Executor appeals to some, not to all. To me it was brilliant, except for one issue that I will soon describe. For those who treasure writing so profound and descriptive in creative ways (ways I had not read before), this book is for you. I know it may not sound very exciting when I say that the best part of the book is "Joseph's" nonsexual relationship to an older woman who takes him in. But have patience. Soak up the descriptions and thoughts like fine wine.

Some didn't like the ending. On the contrary, the ending was perfect to any reader who has been unpeeling the layers of determinism vs. free will that pervades every chapter in one form or another. (I won't say more about how it all goes down as that would be a spoiler.)

So, why do I think that many didn't like this book? Because they were expecting a thriller, not a reading experience to be savored page after page. Maybe Kellerman had to include grissly stuff so that it would sell to a publisher or to a reader. That's a shame, but I do understand how that goes. To me, that was all stuck in for "necessary effect" and downgraded the product in the process, but not enough to detract from my 5 star rating.

THE EXECUTOR is the second novel I’ve read by Jesse Kellerman.

Beautifully written, it was a pleasure to read from beginning to end.

The pace moves along at a surprising speed considering the static nature of the setting. A psychological examination of the workings of the mind and a philosophical investigation into the nature of choice, Kellerman’s novel both entertains and educates.

The only surprise in THE EXECUTOR was that the lack of the unexpected did not take away anything from this novel.

More a literary work than a who-don-it or a thriller, THE EXECUTOR finds a home in a realistic, if disturbing premise.

I have been reading Jesse Kellerman ever since Trouble, and I have always thought that he was underrated. I have never read anything by his parents, and my understanding of the type of novels they write does not really appeal to me. Kellerman, on the other hand, is a unique, underrated, and occasionally twisted writer.

I understand the frustration that other readers have had with this novel. It is truly strange, and the second half differs so much from the first half that it almost seems like a separate novel. But Kellerman has so much malicious fun with this novel, that it is hard to be too upset. Unrealistic? Absolutely. Fun? Totally. Take it for what it is -- this is not high literature -- but it is a very good novel in its own right.

For those of you who are interested in reading more by Jesse Kellerman, I also recommend both Trouble and The Genius, as they are probably Kellerman's two best novels.

I'm a huge fan of the Kellerman family of authors and Mum and Dad never disappoint. Jesse is another kettle of fish, he does have a different style but I have enjoyed all his other books. This book is very different again from his own usual style. It took forever for anything to happen and I was to endure chapter after chapter of philosophical rambling before getting there. OK, I get it the main character is a 'Philosopher' the point was driven home in mind numbing detail. Maybe the point of the rambling was to demonstrate the characters own deteriorating mental health, if it was it got lost in the boring details.. MY point is that is I wanted to read philosophy I wouldn't be downloading from the 'Thriller' category.

Jesse Kellerman's latest is a considerable improvement over his last effort "Trouble" which I found extremely disapointing, but ultimately, unfortunately, this book dissolves into an implausable mess, with the protaganist's actions becoming more unlikely and idiotic with each chapter.

I first became aware of Jesse Kellerman with "The Genius" and that book absolutely STUNNED me. It was SO brilliantly conceived, and so magnificently drawn, and the prose as snappy and smart as it could be. The inner thoughts of that book's main character, an over-privileged, over-educated, arch, and unapologetically narcisstic art dealer were like candy to me as a reader. What writing!

And Jesse can still pull out the big rhetorical guns at will, there's no doubt about it. The guy is a major intellect and a phenomenally gifted rhetorician, but in this book it seems more like showing off than the masterful storytelling of "The Genius."

I would recommend that readers check out his first book, "Sunstroke," for a great read, his second book, "The Genius," for the read of their life, and maybe then if there's nothing else on their biblio plate, check out "The Executor." And don't waste your time on "Trouble," unless you enjoy wonderful pearly prose piled onto a swine of a story.

It tired me out. I wanted to shake the fool and yell at him, "Snap out Of It". Stop staring at your navel. Well done to wring such emotion out of me.

The Executor by Jesse Kellerman is just poorly written. The main character is tedious, unsympathetic, and uninteresting. The characters aren't believable, and the plot goes nowhere. The alleged plot twist at the end isn't really a twist at all, but rather a cop-out by a lazy author who couldn't figure out how to bring the story to a conclusion. There are so many better thrillers out there by writers like Michael Connelly, Dennis Lehane, or Denise Mina.
Another great story from a Kellerman
