Inhaltsangabe zu „Mr. Monster“ von Dan Wells

Mein Name ist John Cleaver. Ich bin sechzehn Jahre alt. Ich mag Lesen, Kochen und ein Mädchen namens Brooke. Ich möchte das Richtige tun. Ich möchte ein guter Mensch sein. Doch das ist nur die eine Hälfte von mir. Mein Name ist Mr. Monster. Ich weise alle Eigenschaften eines Serienkillers auf. Ich phantasiere über Feuer, Gewalt und Tod. Ich habe einen Dämon besiegt. Aber es gibt viele Dämonen da draußen. Zu viele. Und jeden Tag verspüre ich den Drang, erneut zu töten. (Quelle:'Flexibler Einband/27.03.2012')

Amazing. I couldn't put it away. Different that book #1, but it was exciting and I enjoyed reading it so much.

    I had heard "I Am Not A Serial Killer" as an audiobook and was really impressed by the story and it's characters. It was clear to me, that this series could turn out to be on of my favourites, and so it is. "Mr Monster" ist book #2 in the serialkiller series by Dan Wells and I love it. Story: After John has killed for the first time, even if his victim was a demon and the Clayton Killer, his hunger for more grew. He has his rules, but it becomes harder and harder for him to follow them.  When a new killer attacks in Clayton County, John is sure: another demon is here, to seek revenge and finde the one who killed his friend. But who is he? Now his mother knows about demons, but she isn't ready to talk about her experience yet and there's not even Dr Neblin to talk to. John is all on his own. Characters: John Wayne Cleaver is a very interesting person and I love to read about him. He is like the opposite of average and it's very refreshing to read about a book with fantasy elements (demons), that is in all other parts a "normal" book. I like to feel with John and see him struggle and balance on his way to do the right thing. He knows what he is (a sociopath), but he isn't willing to let this part of him, whom he calls "Mr Monster", let gain control over him.  April, his mother, is a bit more understanding in this book, because she knows about the demons. She also trusts John more, because she knows that he wants to save the innocent. Nevertheless, she wants to keep him from the danger and even isn't willing to let him kill the new demon. I can understand her, she just does what a mother has to do. Brooke is just one of the secondary characters, too, but she is important to John. She is likeable and the tourist-date she and John went on is an amazing idea.  Writing: Dan Wells knows how to keep the reader's focus on the story. I couldn't put the book down, because it was so exciting and thrilling. I have this faible for stories with psycho-characters so it's perfect for me :) John is one of my favourite book characters and Wells writing is very good. He totally is capable of building this YA-Story (a young protagonist) including fantasy elements (demon) and making it a crime (serial killer) and a thriller altogether. And it works out well(s) :) Furthermore, there are many gread ideas in the book and things like the descriptions of the embalming process (John's mother runs a mortuary where he works) make the book as real as it is possible. Wells' protagonist is anything but perfect and I think this is rare (in this extreme form). So I give 5 of 5 claws for this book. I am currently reading book #3, "I don't want to kill you" and so far it's great, too. :)

    Etwas abgedreht und erschreckend...aber dennoch mit... wie soll ich sagen.. nchvollziehbaren elementen... trotz meinen miesen engl kenntnissen bin ich ohne duden durchgekommen bis auf 1 wort.. mortician... für die geschcihte wichtig und in der schule leider net gehabt.. aber das buch.. ein außenseiter mit einer gestörten persönlichkeit versucht sich zu " benehmen " und es klappt mithilfe seiner regeln bedingt. ob er sich verbessern kann?
