View Larger Image. Synopsis: Library of the Dead is a debut thriller by Glenn Cooper about predestination and fate. A murderer is on the loose on the streets of New York City: nicknamed the Doomsday Killer, he's claimed six victims in just two weeks, and the city is terrified. Even worse, the police are mystified - the victims have nothing in common, and all that connects them is that each received a postcard in the mail before they died - a postcard that announced their date of death. Questo romanzo comincia nel dicembre in un'abbazia sull'isola di Vectis Inghilterra , quando il piccolo Octavus, accolto dai monaci per pieta', prende una pergamena e inizia a scrivere un'interminabile serie di nomi affiancati da numeri.

F word used s of time. It ruins the story for me and won't buy any of his books. There was about use of fuck or its variants. So, while that is a lot, that is not the eq …more I actually counted using Adobe Digital Editions search. So, while that is a lot, that is not the equivalent of hundreds in the plural, which implies more than I have not read this book yet and when I searched the text, I did not read the context - so I do not know if it was said in moments of distress, anger, by the villain, etc.
You are totally unqualified to judge that and besides using swear words, even very often is not the sign of a mental illness! Writers write fiction stories and the words and actions of their characters do not represent them.
Just because a story or character states an opinion or does something, doesn't mean the author shares it. So, while the character s in this book may drop the f-bomb often, that doesn't mean the author does or even likes using the word in real life -- and it certainly doesn't make him mentally ill, even if he did.
If the use of the word fuck is too triggering for you, I recommend you stick to inspirational genres which take great care to not featuring swear words, sex or violence. You could also try reading Middle Grade and Young Adult. Though there are many YA books that might be an issue for you - some even have swear words in them, because teens surprise, surprise do swear.
Most modern action and thriller books will have some form of swearing in them, though, so be prepared. Do you know if there is a difference between "Secret of the Seventh son" and "Library of the Dead"? I can see it's different publishers but is the content the very same? Tracy Wood I think they are the same book, but the one released in England has a different title than the one released in the US. See all 4 questions about La biblioteca dei morti….
