Creepy look into the mind of a serial killer. The whole book is written from the killers point of view. The killer is a bit child like, but still very deadly. Very good read, just like anything Oats has written.
Very dark. Lots of similarities to Jefferey Dahmer. Written through the eyes of the serial killer who prays on men and boys. Interesting ending.
A horrific story...a serial killer tells his story in first person. A lot of stream of consciousness, it is like being inside his mind. It is written so matter-of-fact without the gratuitous titilation you might expect from a book about a serial killer. I think that's what makes it so chilling. It is a short book that can be read in one sitting but will leave chills down your spine for days. Joyce Carol Oates strikes again...and yes, I liked it but then I like books that are just left of center...
This was a nauseating look into the brain of a sadistic serial killer. It was one of the most uncomfortable things I have ever read and literally gave me nightmares. That said, it was a good book, but you need to have nerves of steel for this one!!
