The ordinary (English Edition) Kindle-editie
2015 INDIES BOOK AWARD, SILVER WINNER, HORROR
DANTE magazine: Fusing horror, psychology and new age religion, this is a novel that repels as much as it fascinates... definitely not for the squeamish... a world where pornography is mainstream viewing, money is valued above self-respect while goodness hovers near the edge of extinction
FLUX magazine: an allegory-laden satire, with impressive character development, twists, and a hefty dose of black comedy... Christopher Ritchie has marked himself out as a rising star in fiction--Deze tekst verwijst naar de paperback editie.

Whilst I wouldn't say this book is better than “House of Pigs” because they both have their own charms but I do think he's come even further out of his shell and really grabbed his audience.
Each of the Characters has his/her own story and background and they don't all feel like carbon copies of the previous ones. Even those caught in the net of the Ordinary seem to have their own personalities underneath the hive's trance.
When I first started the book I couldn't really see how everything fitted together, I thought Mr Ritchie had too many characters and sub-plots and each time I got into one story I felt like I'd been forced into another. The stories do all tie in and come together though so if you've got part way through and feel like it's all a bit much, do keep reading because it's quite interesting how it's all tied up at the end.
I enjoyed Stanley's storyline and the story behind the PP girls a little more than others, but as I say once they all tie in it's much easier to read and keep up with.
My only disappointment really is how fast everything climaxes. It seems just a little bit simple compared to the rest of the book although I can't properly describe that without spoiling it. You'll have to read it for yourself to find out!
This doesn't make it a bad book, it's just that it seems to build up over a series of chapters and then end within one. This however could just be me, you'll have to read it and add your take on it below in the comments to let me know if you disagree.
I would be interested in hearing your ideas about the book so if you're likely to spoil the ending and don't want to post below then you can also email me to discuss.
I would very much like to see what Mr Ritchie comes up with next and would like to see what other stories lurk within the dark corners of his mind.
