Here's the Written Review! What if a serial killer John Wayne Cleaver knows he has all the hallmarks of a serial killer.
He likes to stalk people, hurt animals and fantasizes about killing friends and family. Fear is a People are only afraid of other things, they're never afraid of themselves.
John is afraid of himself - or at least he's afraid of what he could become. So, he's created a set of rules avoid any situation or thought that could encourage those traits.
If he notices himself following someone, he will not look at them for a week. If he wants to hurt someone, he has to say something nice. He has rules to help him cope and manages quite well ish to pass for a normal kid.
Yet, if another serial killer comes to town Following his rules or allowing himself to indulge his killer tendencies and hunt down a murderer?
And to top it all, there's a cute girl at school and his mom is trying to hook them up. He doesn't know what's worse, that it's his mom whose facilitating this girl's interaction with a potential serial killer or the fact that he likes her back.
There is a fabulous twist that brings the term "serial killer" into a whole new light. I love how John is doing his absolute best to curb all killer-instincts AND he has a great family to support him.
This is a crazy-good mixture of familial love and homicidal urges wrapped up in one book. One of my favorites! View all 34 comments. Quite possibly the best book ever written.
View all 27 comments. For everyone else, let me explain as best I can without any spoilers. Our story begins in a small town with a wonderful introduction to John Wayne Cleaver.
John is 15 years old boy who is obsessed with serial killers. Sounds pretty sensible to me, but then again I've never killed anyone Anyway, to help John in his quest not to commit heinous butchery, he has developed strict rules that he follows in order to try and be or at least appear normal.
For example, if someone makes John angry he will compliment them. These were very interesting and this part of the book was excellent.
Now, for those of you that read or watch Dexter, comparisons to that series are both accurate and appropriate.
Apart from their age, the only significant difference between the characters is that John has not yet killed. Apart from that the similarities are certainly there.
It seems that some madman is killing older men and stealing parts of their body. Of course, John is fascinated and begins trying to figure out who the killer is and how he is selecting his victims.
Okay, let's just pause and take a moment to appreciate how we got to this point because the road is gonna get pretty rough ahead. Ready to continue Okay, so up to this point, everything about the book was excellent.
As I finished the first pages my rating was sitting in high 4 star and maybe even 5 star territory and I was just as happy as I could be Very, very painful Well, neither I nor the book ever really recovered from IT.
IT kinda took the wind out of my sails. Now the rest of the book was not horrible and there were some interesting portions in the rest of the book.
Unfortunately, after IT I was basically disengaged from the narrative. I just felt…. For those of you who have requested to know what IT is, here you go View all 94 comments.
I really didn't quite know what I was getting into with this book. And, yes. It is that. But it's also a paranormal story with real demons in it.
I think that's something you should probably know upfront. Ok, so the gist is that this kid named John, who is trying his dead-level best not to turn into a serial killer, ends up becoming the only one who can save his town from potentially Alright.
Ok, so the gist is that this kid named John, who is trying his dead-level best not to turn into a serial killer, ends up becoming the only one who can save his town from potentially the most sympathetic murdering demon I've ever read about.
Or listened to, since this was an audiobook that I downloaded on the fly because it was 'currently available' from my library and I needed something quick - which explains why I didn't realize it had all the spooky monster shit in advance.
Anyway, the point is , John's sleepy small town is being rocked by a vicious killer and everyone is in a tizzy.
I enjoyed the dark humor and thought the narrator John Allen Nelson did a fantastic job of bringing the whole thing to life. I can see there are quite a few books in this series, but I feel as though if I wanted to stop here, I could.
I'm not sure yet, to be honest. We'll see. View all 7 comments. Shelves: reviewed , young-adult-teen , kcls , read-in John Wayne Cleaver lives in a mortuary.
But before you go thinking this is all fun and games like My Girl well, at least before Thomas J and the bees , you should know that John Wayne is a killer.
Well, at least he thinks he is. As a teenager, his internal monster makes life considerably harder, especially because John feels no connection to his peers and little to no emotion.
I Am Not A Serial Killer follows John as he deals with having a serial killer in his town--Will being so close to an actual killer cause John to lose control of his own monster?
At times, Dan Wells ' debut novel seems a bit too juvenile. Anyone who knows my reading habits knows how much young adult literature I read. My expectations of this work were that I was going to be reading Dexter Lite.
In actuality, this book had very little gore and it read like someone did research on serial killers, found out about the Macdonald Triad and then just wrote a book about it.
I don't meant that to sound harsh but I honestly feel that it could've been so much better. John is in high school but it felt like a middle reader book.
Without spoilers, I'll just say that I thought I was reading a book about a serial killer in reality. Major buzzkill. There were just too many "no way" type moments for me in this story--the one that kept popping up much to my dismay was the fact that John simultaneously shovels snow several times a week yet also bikes everywhere even to a lake outside town.
If there is enough snow to be shoveling more than once a week, you are not bicycling. Especially in a small town where there is less traffic to melt the snow on the roads.
Yes, I know it is possible and some people enjoy biking in winter but I don't buy it here [note: More "no way" moments below but with spoilers] There are tons of glowing reviews for this book on Goodreads, so maybe it is just me.
And that's great. But this book is the first in a series of three--I will definitely not be reading any further. I see that a few of my friends on here gave up on this one and to them I say--Cheers on a choice well made:- And to Linda, whom I still trust for recommendations, I was excited to read this one.
You were right to recommend it. But I need more blood and guts in my killer novels! Someone that is used to stalking prey will not just go on with every day life la-la-la while someone is trying to expose them.
Are you kidding me? They'd spy back and figure out who it is. A large part of me thinks the paranormal element might've been added in because the book is YA and, for some reason, either the publisher or the author felt like it would be too gruesome to have a regular human doing all the killing and body part snatching.
To them, I say, yeah right. Have you read YA these days? Bring on the regular serial killers! View all 13 comments. Shelves: audio , dark , anti-hero-i-love , favorite-narrator , paranormal , horror , favorite-series , violent , amazing-narrator-performance , series-worth-continuing.

Or at least he did until he wrote the utterly crappy Dexter in the Dark. Now Dan Wells is taking a ne Ever since Hannibal Lector flirted with Clarice Starling by telling her about his favorite recipes, it seems like every other thriller features some kind of deranged but brilliant serial killer.
Now Dan Wells is taking a new approach to the concept. John Wayne Cleaver is a teen-age boy who lives with his mother at the funeral home she runs with her twin sister.
He also has to see a therapist who he tells about his efforts to not engage in mass murder. However, when a string of grisly murders occur that terrify the town, John can barely contain his excitement that a serial killer is operating nearby.
However, John will find out that this killer is worse than even his deranged mind can imagine. The first third of his book had me completely intrigued.
I loved the notion of someone fighting against their own inclinations. However, the book takes a wild turn that I didn't really enjoy.
Plus, I could never get entirely over the similarities to the Dexter series. View all 12 comments. Shelves: library-book , couldnt-finish.
I wanted to read this book because of my fascination with serial killers and the intriguing slant in the main character's relationship with himself.
While reading, I was put off by Wells' writing style. It came off as juvenile in that he writes as though he doesn't trust his readers to figure out fairly obvious things for themselves.
It's muddled in redundancy. All I wanted to read this book because of my fascination with serial killers and the intriguing slant in the main character's relationship with himself.
All of this I could have put aside, and tried to, for the sake of the still intriguing concept and somewhat likable main character. However, a few more than pages in, it took an unforgivable turn for the worse.
I don't want to spoil anything for those who haven't read it yet and may still want to, so I will spare you any sort of real detail.
Suffice it to say that it became very obvious fairly quickly that this book wasn't one I would care for in the slightest. I put it down without finishing it, which is something I usually have a hard time doing, but it was fairly easy with this one.

When Dan asked people to name 5 killers in order to win a t-shirt, she stayed quiet and named 14 under her breath.
DO NOT enter our home, make sure to arrive with witnesses, and be careful if she offers you refreshments, it is a distraction tactic. Bring gelato if you plan on surviving..
Dan Wells scribbled his John Hancock into the cover and i went home.. I had some must reads already waiting that needed to be pushed through my brain machine before i could get to this..
How i waited nearly a month, i really do not know….. He grew up in a family of morticians. He helps out around the house and business. John is an outcast because he firmly believes he will grow up to be a serial killer.
John does not WANT to be a serial killer, but he thinks that the universe has stacked the deck against him, starting with his name. His father is Sam Cleaver, making him the Son of Sam.
His last name is a tool for cutting meat. Interestingly enough, the town John lives in has a new killer hanging around, killing people and leaving their bodies lying about with parts missing.
John obsessively investigates the killer, attempting to determine his motives and methodologies.
This is in part because of his interest in the subject matter, and in part because of his fear of joining the ranks.. This really was a great book.
IANASK is a mild thriller, and a must read for anyone who has found themselves spending an afternoon reading through the Internet Crime Library or whiling away nights watching true crime shows on TV.
Wells did a great job breaking down the mind of a killer and really leaves you mentally cheering for the 15 year old sociopath that is the main character.
You know he could turn out to be a horrible person in a couple years, but hope for the best because really, his is just a great kid.
It is a little gory in some spots, but not overly so.. One of my favorite aspects of John Cleaver is that he has already identified character traits of his that make him fear for his future.
He has created a series of rules that will help himself suppress these character traits. These rules are mandatory to keep himself from crossing over, they keep his darker side in check..
He should have one tattooed on the back of his hand. The book is humorous and intense in all the right places.
If you pick this book up, let me know what you thought of the Halloween Dance chapter. This was book one in a trilogy, i am very interested to see how the characters in this series turn out.
Mr Wells, Get to releasing the books.. View all 6 comments. You are evil , said myself. You are Mr.
You are nothing. You are me. Well well well Simplistic and understated, this book really doesn't try to be anything other than what it says it is, making for not only a fun, easy read, but a very touching one, as well.

I became entwined and engrossed with this character in the early stages of the book, making it enjoyable from page one all the way until the end.
And then there's that damn middle part that just He really went there? You've got to be kidding me. And yet It took a bit, I'll admit, to get past the absurdity with which this was presented.
But let me ask you this: For me, being the type of reader that I am, why wouldn't I love the fact that this little twist made it all the more perilous?
Yeah, it was totally unbelievable. Yeah, it was an odd direction to go. And, yes, it will not be for everyone.
But, for whatever reason, I decided I really liked it- Logic be damned. I think that fire is more alive than we are-brighter, hotter, more sure of itself and where it wants to go.
Fire doesn't settle; fire doesn't tolerate; fire doesn't "get by. Fire is. I really did have an internal struggle on whether or not I liked what was happening in this one.
I wrestled with the idea that, while I am in love with these types of books, this was really dumb. But it comes down to more than that, it comes down to if the positive outweighs the negative And that big positive that made this whole book worth it?
Our main character, John. People scurry around, doing their little jobs and raising their little families and shouting their meaningless emotions to the world, and all the while you just watch from the sidelines, bewildered.
This drives some sociopaths to feel superior, as if the whole of humanity were simply animals to be hunted or put down; others feel a hot, jealous rage, desperate to have what they cannot.
I simply felt alone, one leaf sitting miles away from a giant, communal pile. Emotionless , lacking empathy , and a social outcast , John was my favorite type of character, at the moment.
Well, I like a little more empathy in my boys, but, hey-You get what I mean. Not without the quirky inner monologue or the twisted humor of the writing would this book have succeeded-of that I'm sure.
John would not be a likable character to read about had we not gotten his odd rationalizations of the goings on around him or the way he views human flaws, such as love and loyalty.
In a way, he's broken. He longs to feel something, anything , if only to be like those around him- He can't even cry. He gets jealous that others have this ability, and that's why he is so fascinated with serial killers-weird sounding, I know!
But, when you feel like you're on the verge of being one yourself, it only makes sense to latch onto the one connection in this world you are sure is your only link to humanity.
Someday you're going to kill a whole bunch of people-probably more than ten, because you're such an overachiever-and then they're going to have me on TV and ask if I saw this coming, and I'm going to say,'Hell yes, that guy was seriously screwed up.
You heard me right- He thinks he is destined to be a serial killer. And, because of this, he has a set of rules he rigidly follows.
And it has worked Every day his 'monster' threatens to leak out, to identify with this new murderer-sorry, sorry, not murderer But when he finds out who is killing, he takes responsibility into his own hands.
Who better to find a serial killer Is that what you want me to say? I Am Not A Serial Killer honors the book it's based on with a well-acted drama that leavens its gore and dark themes with wry humor.

Spiritually if not literally. Nigel Andrews. Kate Muir. A pleasingly macabre study of a mixed-up teen who could be a Dexter-in-waiting.
Mike McCahill. There's a touch of 'Stranger Things' about this lo-fi indie horror. David Clack. Jake Wilson. The arbitrary value of life in I Am Not a Serial Killer makes its nature as an ostensibly character-driven mystery that much harder to swallow.
Simon Abrams. The film is bloody while definitely teen friendly to some. It's not overly scary but the story is engrossing and suspenseful, making it an enjoyable, entertaining film.
Emilie Black. A brilliant film that is rightfully placed in the 'Cult' section of the festival as it is sure to have this status in years to come.

The film is strongest in its most outrageous, emotive moments, and along with the great performances it offers a lot to enjoy. Tom Bond. There's a great sense of claustrophobic place in winter darkness, which enables a contrast between icy growing dread and candle-lit normality.
