the ultimate serial killer bull
am 5. Juli 2009
This book is about confession and contrition. I must confess I took Cody McFadyen for a woman as his sympathetical style is an originally female one. The way he writes about his female heroes, the way they talk, behave, share their secrets or talk about sex or cooking is something you wouldn't really expect from a man. Insofar it's not a wonder this book deals with a victim that's undergoing a sex transformation at first and you read a dozen pages about the mental and social problems of these group. The book's written with a good sense of humour and the dialogues are pretty witty, the human relations between the agents are outlined professionally, the social background of the victims is depicted convincingly. There's not much action on the other hand, and hard-boiled serial killer addicts will maybe suffer from a little boredom along the way.
But - you'll rub your eyes. This book's crammed with perverted stuff. In fact I guess it is the ultimate serial killer novel as Cody summarizes all perversities and sins you could imagine - and even some you wouldn't imagine.
Serial killing of the most evil kind, rape (adults, children), child molestation, cruelty to animals, homicide, incest, matricide, euthanasia, torture - it's all in here.
In fact - while I wouldn't recommend the story itself (reality is too far off), I am impressed by this brief and comprehensive overview of aberrant behavior. It seems it was Cody's ambition to pack it all in one novel. The only problem I see: if you plan to read further serial killer and other deviant stuff you'll find yourself at a loss. It will be almost impossible to detect anything Cody left out. This book isn't funny, but I often found myself burst into laughter at the wealth of aberrant fantasies the author unfolds. Congratulations! If there would be a "pervert's book of the year" award this book would be an aspirant.
You really won't have to bother reading another one and can return to earnest literature without regret. And that impresses indeed.
