The premise was so promising but the style just didn't do it for me. A number of problems with the book could all have been helped by one simple thing. The Golden Rule of Writing: Show, don't tell.

The book was filled with info dumps. About characters, about real life serial killers, about conspiracies... There are multiple occasions when this actually happens:
"About [character]." followed by a page or so of facts about said character. Don't tell me "[Character] had horrific nightmares that woke him a couple of times each month." before I've even met the character. Show him having a nightmare or two, then say that.

The narration was written in a detached, flat sort of way that left me not particularly caring about the characters or what was happening to them. "So, [this] happened, then [this], oh, and I didn't know it then, but I now know that [character] thought [this]." There was no immediacy. Even when the bad stuff is happening, it's told from such a distance that you just kind of don't care. It doesn't hit home.

Others have already pointed out the lack of proper dialogue. I know the author was going for something here, but for me, it only added to the detachment. The author may have been going for "This kid is clearly traumatized" but I was feeling more like "This kid is kind of boring."

This book is full of adventure and suspense. It was an amazing book to read. 4Q5P The cover art is awesome and I'd recommend this for high school students. I chose to read this book because the cover and title looked really interesting. AbigailH

So this is my first book and first review of the year and wow is it off to a good start! There is so much to say about this book, the idea is insane but well thought out, the author backs up his ideas with evidence of previous American conspiracy theories, its horrifying to read yet it could also be so close to hidden truths. The book also contains a ton of very interesting information on some of the most violent convicted serial killers, some of this information can be a bit tough to swallow, whilst the book has an age of limit 14yrs+ i really think it should be 16+ whilst its not actually graphic at any point in the book it does touch on subjects I wouldn't have been allowed to read about at 14. Whilst i really enjoyed this book and was totally gripped by the pictures and info of the serial killers and the story line I have to admit I found no qualities or dimensions to the main character at all, I get that he was a 15 year old boy but seriously I cant bare it when an author uses WTF or YOLO or 'gonna' its just annoying to see that in a novel, its not a txt message. Jeff, the main character personally for me doesn't have many qualities, he has moments where I think he shines, like the dreams and figuring out his dads notes but other than that he spends a lot of time moaning. The book couldnt have been without him as he literally carries it but he really ought to have been much more built up, more three dimensional and stronger. All in all though its totally worth the read. This author is crazy but good! ( )
