I Am Not A Serial Killer (John Cleaver, #1)I Am Not A Serial Killer by Dan Wells

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I listen to Dan Wells’ writing advice on his podcast Writing Excuses regularly and went a head and decided to listen to his novel by audio book. Because I had been listening to Dan for so long, I already had a few minor spoilers regarding the plot of the story which likely affected my reading of it. I am happy to say I enjoyed the story and would even recommend it to fans of psychological horror. There were a few aspects that kept me from loving it however.

My personal problem with the novel was there were times when I was not that interested in the main character’s welfare. The story has a lot of introspective moments which sometimes fell flat for me, although I am not sure why. There was, however, one particular scene at the start of the climax of the story that really got to me. It gave me chills, which is what a good horror novel should do.

If you’re fascinated by sociopaths, serial killers, and don’t mind a bit of the supernatural, then I do suggest you read this book.
