    for something different, read this one..

    The Parent Killer is unlike any book I've read its a fictional story of abused children, and the man who takes it upon himself to help them. Due to my background in working with abused kids, anything written about the subject is something I want to kids should ever have to suffer what abused children do. I've read a lot of books both fiction and non about the subject, but none have ever taken the path this one does. The story is tragic and uplifting, heinous and beautiful all in one. As I read it I was forced to examine my own ideas of right and wrong and of good and evil. While it was a fictional story, there were many times througout the story I found myself wondering what I would do.. The book is realistically written, honest and raw and entertaining as well. I couldn't put it down, I needed to keep turning those pages to find out how it would all end. Two thumbs way up!!

    Attrociously Bad Writing.

    The writing is laughably, throw-the-book-across-the-roomingly bad. The editor is asleep at the wheel - Heed the PW review and don't bother with this one. As for the blurb from the teacher below, if you enjoy 'metophors' like "...nightmares that came and went like girlfriends and boyfriends in a journey through adolescent puppy love," or "...the heat from Rachel's crotch burning like a red flame on a sultry August evening," then yep, this 'uns for you (although I think those're simmy-lees, rather than meto-fors, teach.)

    Filled with metophors and symbolism--awesome!

    The Parent Killer was a very well written, page-turner. I just couldn't put the book down until I was finished reading it. I highly recommend it to everyone interested in saving children from abusive parents as a portion of the book proceeds go toward the Prevention of Children America.
