Customer Review

on May 5, 2012
John Wayne Cleaver is your average teenager; he fantasizes about girls, has a turbulent relationship with his mother and is slowly deciding what sort of person he wants to be. Oh, and he's a sociopath with murderous tendencies!

'Mr Monster' carries on the trials and tribulations of everyone's favourite teenage sociopath where the previous book left off and let me tell you, the pace doesn't slow down for a second. Having just solved the unsettling mystery behind a string of murders in the previous book, John finds himself in a similarly twisted situation as a fresh batch of bodies start turning up. But John's finding it increasingly difficult to keep his alternate personality, the eponymous Mr Monster, locked up inside his psyche. With new opportunities to unleash his deepest, darkest desires presenting themselves at every corner, will John be able fight back and resist? I can only tell you to read on.

I devoured the first book in the series and was equally satisfied with Mr Monster, despite the rather jarring shift from tentative thriller to full-throttle horror. Without spoiling anything, the antagonist in this volume isn't sympathetic AT ALL and lends a far edgier atmosphere to the proceedings than in the previous installment. John himself is also becoming more and more troubled, which makes him a challenging character to root for in certain parts of the story, but that's partly what makes him so fascinating. I wholly recommend this book to anybody who enjoyed the first and can't wait to see what grisly happenings the third book has in store.
