Book Review — I Am Not A Serial Killer (John Cleaver #1) by Dan Wells

I Am Not A Serial Killer (John Cleaver, #1)I Am Not A Serial Killer by Dan Wells
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

What’s not to love about a YA novel starring a sociopathic main character?

I haven’t read much fiction about serial killers, but I think Dan Wells should be lauded for his handling of this troubled child. The 1st person really got us into John Cleaver’s head, and allowed us a peek into his fantastic narrative voice.

I also loved the dark turns the story took every now and then. (view spoiler) It didn’t let us forget that John could easily be a serial killer, and that he has those tendencies.

Like many other reviewers, I’m not sure the whole demon aspect was necessary, but I trust Dan and will continue on with the books.

On a slightly disturbing aside, I am now completely fascinated by serial killers. I’ve been reading about them non-stop and watching movies like crazy. Dan Wells, what have you done?

On a more awesome aside, Dan is coming to town for a local convention! Can’t wait to finally meet him.
