Did not like this one. I wanted to enjoy it. I wanted it to scare me. But it was mostly just irritating. The stream of consciousness writing style left much to be desired, and the sporadic capitalization, punctuation, and drawings were unnecessary and added nothing. I feel like Joyce Carol Oates was trying too hard with this one, and it showed. ( )

I got about halfway through and decided it wasn't worth it. It was very edgy for the sake of edginess. Gross, but not to any particular end. Joyce Carol Oates is better than this book. ( )

Impressive attempt by Oates to get inside the mind of a deeply disturbed, psychotic young man. The story would have been more powerful if it wasn’t so obviously inspired by the Jeffrey Dahmer case. ( )

Yuck. ( )

Absolutely lovely. A very easy read, and Oates has taken in Jeffrey Dahmer's story and made it something on its own without resorting to shock tactics. ( )
