To most people, this book would seem really disturbing, but honestly that's why I loved it... It was different.

This is a very disturbing book. I highly recommend parents to read it before they consider allowing their kids to read this. "Eric's search for tenderness is found in caressing and killing beautiful girls.” (How long until the Thinkpol gets this comment censored?)

This was overall an odd, creepy, disturbing book. Not the kind of book I usually read, and not fun, but the sense of forboding keeps building throughout the book and the ending was unexpected. A quiet book, but kind of haunting in the end. Depending on your taste, you may really like it.

A very different story by Robert Cormier. It was a mixture of creepy, disturbing, interesting, scary and surprise. Kept me on the edge of my seat.
