The Making of Evil by C. Ross Dutton was a thrilling, captivating, and engaging story about a boy named Juan. Juan was a brave and intelligent child. According to the book, he acted more maturely than his age. Juan had no choice, as he was to take full responsibility for his siblings. He was born to a woman named Senora Emilia, a drunkard, drug abuser, and sex worker. Juan grew up being unclear about things. His naivety made him feel like the worst sinner on earth and he was an evil man.

Little Juan, who was brilliant and interested in learning about new things, now grew up to become a sex worker, sexual abuser, and drug trafficker. He accepted life the way it came to him, and he's unapologetic about it. Juan followed his mother's destructive path and did many grievous and unimaginable things. He had always considered himself an evil man. This book would let us know what happened to Juan as he went on with his life. This book is intriguing.

I liked how the author used this book as information to open our eyes and let us know that there is genuinely a worldwide sex market out there, and innocent children are being abused sexually. I have always watched them on the screen but never believed they were real, but with the author's note at the end of the book, I was surprised to see that things like this happen. Everyone needs to be cautious of what's happening to avoid being victimized in such circumstances.

What I found negative about this book was the over-sexual content. Also, the use of profane words was overused. I understood from the author that it completes the tone and manner of the characters in this book, but it may sound uncomfortable to some readers. One of my pet peeves about this book is a character in it; the mother of Juan, Emilia. I disliked her so much; she was the cause of everything in Juan's lifeline. She portrayed terrible parenting. I always felt bad reading the part about her sending her children away in the dark to entertain her visitors.

This book was well-organized and professionally edited. It was exciting and had a way of gluing somebody to a spot till they were done reading. For the above reasons, I have no choice but to give this book a rating of four out of four stars. However, this book contains many profane words and some minor errors. I recommend this book to lovers of thrilling stories about psychological abuse, sexual abuse, and adventure fiction. I recommend this book to teenagers, adults, or anyone with a mature mind. This book was an exciting read.
