Wow, this was quite an intriguing and unique book. I've never read anything like it. My major was psychology, and my favorite course was forensic psychology, so I have always been fascinated by the subject. It was so interesting to read from the point of view of a teenage sociopath. I found him so honest and insightful. He's trying to do good and fight against what he knows he is. A noble sociopath you can empathize with...who'd have thought? Okay, maybe noble is too strong of a word, but you get the idea!
Another thing I liked was how the twists really caught me off guard and surprised me. That doesn't happen to me very often.
I do want to say, without spoiling anything, that when John tells us what he got everyone for Christmas presents--I literally laughed out loud. I found it so hysterical for some reason!
This is the first book of a trilogy, and I am very interested in seeing how the story continues.
