I read 30% of the book and I've had enough!LOL! Life is too short to read a book I don't like, so I've quit! I don't have kids so I can really feel the woman's pain of giving up her freedom for a child that never seemed to bond with her anyway! But maybe it was her reluctance to accept being a mother that caused him to be so deranged to begin with??? As I said I'm not a parent and I don't really get it, I guess that's why I'm not a parent!! LOL!
Haha.. my thoughts exactly!I also forced myself to read something out of my comfort zone. I quit half way, skimmed the rest, and went online to see what happened in the end.
as you said, life's too short!
Another thing that bothered me is the narration. It is supposed to come across as non-fiction. Well, to me most of the storyline felt far fetched and yes I do know about children with dysfunctions. I think the book could have touched me if the scenes of "evil" Kevin and his "poor" mother would have been less exaggerated, more subtle.
At least one good thing came from reading this book. I thought I am ready for children of my own, but I realised I am not, yet. I´ll give myself a couple more years although I am already feeling pressure from my environment.
Why do you think Kevin killed those people?Was it for the fame,for the pure pleasure of rebelling or what?I'm curious about your opinions.
Although I think this book had a lot of potential, I think it fell short and proved to be a difficult read and not quite on target.
