    • It s a pretty big shock to realise that the only people you can identify with are psychopathic killers.We continue the story of quasi serial killer John Wayne Cleaver, who despite bearing the name of two serial killers and a murder weapon, is determinedly not going to give in to impulse to become a murdererough he may bend the rules for some truly monstrous people.The demon from the first story He had friends And one of those friends just came knocking at the door As the disappearances mount, Jo [...]


    • This book is a bit hard to rated review Please note I AM ASSUMING YOU HAVE READ I Am Not A Serial Killer which is the first volume of this story THERE WILL BE SPOILERS FOR THAT BOOK HERE.I find many things about this these book s interesting and well done I also find a lot about especially this one objectionable The books attempt to walk the lines between slasher horror urban fantasy The first book follows John as he struggles with his own verging sociopathy He has always been fascinated by deat [...]


    • Esta rese a NO contiene spoilers.Bien hecho, Dan Wells MUY bien hecho.No soy el se or monstruo es la segunda parte de No soy un serial killer y OH GOD, QU SEGUNDA PARTE Como es l gico, no puedo decir mucho porque spoilers, pero si quieren saber mi opini n, contin en leyendoRSONAJESSin dudas puedo afirmar que el fuerte de esta saga son los personajes Dan Wells hace un trabajo incre ble al construir a cada uno de ellos, pero John se roba el escenario por mucho Lo que vale la pena destacar es la ps [...]


    • Trust me, from one sociopath to another if you don t understand the reason for something, it s always love What fascinated me in I Am Not A Serial Killer is learning about antiosocial personality disorder, discovering the world of morticians, and than anything rooting for a boy struggling with his sociopathic tendencies and his need to be good But none of that was fascinating for me here.When it wasn t repetitive or bland all those oh my gosh es and first dates screamed Mormon author , it was d [...]


    • Iako mi je prvi dio za dlaku bio bolji, kvalitativno su u istom rangu Zaista fantasti an nastavak.Dok smo u prvom dijelu imali cat and mouse game, u ovom dijelu se vi e bavimo samim Johnom, njegovim mra nim mislima iako je duboko dole jako dobra osoba i kako Mr Mosnter polako po inje vladati nad njim, iako se John bori protiv toga Kada se u Clayton pojavljuje novi ubojica, to ne ide ba u korist samog Johna, nego vi e njegovoj sociopatskoj strani, Monesteru Pri a li i malo na neki mix Supernatura [...]


    • FIRST READ Aug 10 13, 2012SECOND READ Sep 4 7, 2015THIRD READ Oct 27 28, 2017Once again, wow.I blazed through this one over the course of a weekend it would have been a single day but I had to visit a local Scandinavian festival with friends and then finish my slideshow for tomorrow s lesson This volume is even darker, even gruesome than the first, as John s heroic actions from I Am Not A Serial Killer take on a twisted life of their own The darkness within John is getting stronger and hungrier [...]


    • This review and other odd shaped monsters on Blood Red Velvet.About a year ago I made the chance discovery of Wells other novel, The Hollow City, which I have honestly not been able to find an equal of in its unique concoction of genres A novel with zero flaws in my eyes So of course what had I to do but to read literally everything else Wells had written And absolutely zero of his books have been a disappointment, or even below a solid four out of five stars.I ve read all of the John Cleaver se [...]


    • Mr Monster, the sequel to I Am Not a Serial Killer by Dan Wells, was scarily addicting It s a story about a sixteen year old sociopath, at war with himself over giving into his darker urges or doing right and acting normal And while this sounds creepy and weird, the mystery of the story and the development of John s character make for a fascinating read Also, it s impossible to put down.Continuing a few months after I Am Not a Serial Killer, Mr Monster delves even deeper into John s sociopathic [...]


    • La verdad es que no s que decir sobre este libro ya que no me sorprende ni positivamente ni negativamente.No creo que sea una mala historia, pero s es cierto que me da la sensaci n de que el autor se va un poco por las ramas a veces Me hubiera gustado que se centrara m s en la acci n ya que la parte final se me ha hecho s per corta en comparaci n con el resto del libro.Otra de las cosas que me fallan sobre la saga trilog a creo que hay m s de 3 libros de John Cleaver es que se descubre enseguida [...]


    • Es una gran sorpresa darte cuenta de que las nicas personas con las que te puedes identificar son asesinos psic patas Esta secuela pudo haberse ganado las cinco estrellas f cilmente, pero tiene un inicio m s bien torpe, lo cual arruina las cosas un poco Sin embargo, luego toma un rumbo inesperado que no puedo m s que alabar, yo al leer la sinopsis imagin algo similar que el primer libro, un nuevo asesino perseguido por un soci pata, bueno, por John, pero no, es algo m s calculado y mucho m s adi [...]


    • I can t help but love these books Already with the first book, I knew that I d enjoy whatever Dan Wells threw at me, but seriously, these books are like crack to me now.I love John Cleaver because he s a sociopath with morals That kind of main character is hard to beat.The only negative thing I have to say is that I m not pleased with the end It felt too abrupt and inconclusive Of course, it s not the last book in the series, so it s not supposed to be completely conclusive, but what I mean is t [...]



    • In the second book of the series, young John Cleaver continues to battle the forces of evil inside of him and out in the world He does his best to stick to his list of rules that should help prevent him from becoming a serial killer, even if that is all he knows would actually make him feel fully alive He struggles to communicate with the rest of society because he s got no empathy but he tries, and he tries hard But in this book, something is taunting him, marking him, inviting him to embrace w [...]


    • segundo livro lido, continua com o seu humor sarc stico, uma escrita brilhante, timos pormenores sobre as casas mortu rias.


    • Mr Monster is different from its predecessor, I am Not a Serial Killer, as it gives me a good kind of mixed feelings With I am Not a Serial Killer, I felt like I was on a wild ride where I didn t know what to expect In Mr Monster, Mr Wells takes us on a wild ride where we don t know which aspect of John Wayne Cleaver s personalities we re dealing with as both are wide awake and fighting for control of his psyche A good example of me feeling dual feelings is when John goes on his first date We sa [...]



    • I am going to review Mr Monster by Dan Wells.In the interest of full honesty, Dan and I don t go way back, nor are we even Christmas card friends We met a few years ago and have barely talked since not out of any animosity However, the circumstance was just unusual enough that I remember him and he remembers me He s an accomplished author and I m an aspiring one.And that s all there is to that.Now on to his book.I read I Am Not a Serial Killer, also by him and the first in his John Cleaver trilo [...]


    • El primer libro me gust mucho porque tocaba constantemente el tema de asesinos seriales y a m me causan fascinaci n y aunque hubo un giro en la historia que me medio decepcion , al final me termin gustando mucho Adem s, hab a escuchado que el segundo libro era a n mejor y que me gustar a m s, as que ten a muchas ganas de por fin leerlo Pero mi amigo Yorch me hab a medio decepcionado con su opini n sobre el libro, as que no sab a qu esperar de l sta es la continuaci n de No soy un serial killer d [...]


    • Dan Wells has certainly done his homework He pulled me in with I Am Not A Serial Killer, his first look at John Wayne Cleaver, his well named sociopath named for both John Wayne Gacy and a weapon While the first novel explored the relationship between John s good side and Mr Monster, his twisted inner demon, this latest novel delves much farther into John s relationship with his own psychosis As someone who s always been a little fascinated with serial killers I ve stopped reading the true crime [...]


    • So I Am Not a Serial Killer had that abrupt turnaround that put off everyone and disrupted the flow of the book Get over it It was still a very creative story that managed to turn a creepy kid into a 15 year old antihero for our ambivalent generation The secret is out for number two of the trilogy It is even in the description of Mr Monster This series is a supernatural thriller with a would be teenaged serial killer in the driver s seat.Now the question is Can Mr Wells successfully combine the [...]


    • Don t read this book until you ve read I Am Not a Serial Killer You really need to know the background story in Book 1 of this series to fully understand it.That said, I did like this book It started out a bit slow, focusing on John s personal life than the mystery Once the bodies were discovered, the pace really took off The supernatural element from the first book is continued here I found this book emotionally distrubing than the first one, mainly because of the descriptions at the killer s [...]


    • Bueno si, el misterio de los asesinatos es bueno y todo, pero lo mejor del libro DEFINITIVAMENTE es la pelea psicologica del protagonista con sigo mismo por no convertirse en un asesino John Wayne Clever es un personaje SUMAMENTE interesante, pero aveces da miedo leer sus pensamientos Definitivamente seguire leyendo la saga.AY POR CIERTO YO SHIPEO A JOHN Y BROKE 3


    • Ok esta saga se esta poniendo cada vez mas interesante pero sin duda lo mejor son sus personajes en especial la evolucion del protagonista atravez de los libros no puedo esperar para ver que mas ocurrira con el.


    • This is wrong This is exactly what I ve always wanted, and exactly what I ve always wanted to avoid.I can t tell my dreams from my nightmares.Dang it, Dan Wells I got other books to read Places to be Emotions to not be spent on fictional cats that may or may not be dead At least I tore through this in two sittings.Shooooot this is was so much emotionally charged than the last and I loved it for that Seriously, IS this YA We re sorta pushing it Lots of uncomfortable and creepy moments that were [...]

    • So very, very disturbing This is an LDS author like you ve never read before.As a teenager, I used to wonder what it would be like to be a sociopath who was trying not to kill It seems very similar to the way I felt about sneaking snacks into the movie theater It s something that I know I shouldn t do in my head, but I didn t think my heart would feel any guilt if I actually did it What stopped me, then, from sneaking snacks in even though I really wanted to Was that the same thing that would st [...]


    • Depois do livro Eu n o sou um serial killer que foi muito viciante, chega nos a sua continua o, O senhor Monstro Contando a Hist ria sobre um sociopata de 16 anos de idade, que trava uma guerra com ele mesmo, em que os Senhor Monstro, tal como ele lhe chama, faz despertar dentro de si os seus desejos mais sombrios Com uma data de regras impostas por ele pr prio para tornar tudo mais alegre e manter o monstro sossegado.Este livro passa se alguns meses depois do anterior, e o Senhor Monstro est ma [...]


    • Is a killer a monster if they only kill bad people What would you do to keep your child from thinking bad thoughts, from fully embracing the sociopath that he or she is In book 2 John talks about his Monster and basically the rules he and his mother have set up to keep him from going off the deep end.The story had a good flow and could easily be read in a sitting or two.While the story of John Cleaver progressed, it did so in the most minimalist way possible The baddie in this read was, not nece [...]


    • Ich muss sagen das Ende fand ich ganz gut ja, es geht um D monen, aber ich habe mich jetzt darauf eingestellt und den D monenj ger John akzeptiert Es h tte nur von Anfang an so kommuniziert werden sollen damit man wei auf was man sich da einl sst.
