Not the best writing style I've encountered, but a gripping and compelling story. The Main Character seems to grow more bizarre with each page. I had to constantly remind myself that this is a work of fiction. I'd definitely recommend it.

Wow! I couldn't put this one down. Super bizarre, but at the same time I wanted to know what happened. Although it left me wanting to know more, it was a pretty good read over all!

2 words to sum it up :

1- sick.
2- sick.

The first sick, is the positive sick! :p As an appreciation for the author's talent in describing and luring me into another world of excitement and thrill.
The second sick, is the negative sick! :p
It should be expected though, reading a diary of a (serial killer)!

If you're a fan of crimes and gore, you should read this book. :)

Not for the fainthearted. I suppose you must either be used to anything or be a little sadistic to enjoy the book. The author tried to captivate the reasons why someone can become a serial killer and touched factors like absent fatherhood, dominant mother, asocial behaviour, pathological mind. I have one critic however: I do not believe that a real serial killer will change his m.o. that much.

Wow! Such a great short read! I have to remind myself that this is just a work of fiction, that it is not actually in fact a diary of a serial killer for many times than I would like to admit. It just shows how hatred can motivate people; to kill. Not so descriptive, but it conveyed the emotions very effectively.

I know it's bad, but Reece makes serial killing sound like a reasonable research methods. I loved his writing style, his interactions with Barbara and the so called bitches at work.

Oh, and his mother, I loved how he described his mother.

Creepy, gory, graphic, intense. If it wasn't for the fact that I had to read a "psychopath" themed book for school, I wouldn't really have a reason to read this. It gets weirder and weirder as the main character, a curious writer, goes from a lonely, sketchy writer who conducts research for his stories to a freakish, psycho serial killer. To top it off, he finds a lover who turns out to be as crazy as he is who eventually teams up with him. If you like horror and suspense, I guess this is for yo ...more

Reece, is your ordinary deliveryman/ writer who failed to publish any of his books due to lack of characterisation sometimes or plot development of the story in others. So he seeks for an idea that would satisfy their (publish companies) "hunger for action". So he started his "research" of being a series killer and documenting his feelings in his diary.

Great book. Easy to read. In some points you think that is crazy and sick and how the main character can do these things ... it is not actually real -it is just fiction. I was actually hoping to have more details and longer storyline, but for short story it is good.
