review 1: This book is as interesting as it is disturbing. Usually these murder mysteries/crime novels are told from the perspective of the "good guy" or the killer but to have a story told through the eyes of someone who is good, but has the instinct of a killer is something new and I applaud Barry Lyga for that. The mystery aspect of the "who had done it" wasn't as appealing to me as the inner struggle that Jazz faces on the daily-the whole nature vs nurture ordeal. I love how psychological this book was, and how it kept my mind spinning. I like how it was told in third person because it gave the story the wide scope that it needed; yet, despite being told in third person the story never felt disconnected or distant. Although a lot of the time some of the scenes made me really unc... moreomfortable and a bit queasy as well, I can't deny that this story was compelling and I'm glad that there are more than one book.
review 2: If you want to know how to get away with murder or just like to read crime, mystery, thriller books, I Hunt Killers written by Barry Lyga is most definitely the book for you! High school student Jasper Dent is the son of famous serial killer Billy Dent. When bodies start to pile up in small town Lobos Nod, Jazz is determined to figure out who is behind it. This was the first book I've read that Lyga has written but I'll be looking for more. He made this book different from other mysteries you may have read, the main character is the son of a killer while most mysteries have a detective or the killer as the main character. It kept me in suspense, and I was guessing from the beginning to the end. I can't find anything wrong with this book, and it is by far, one of the best books I have read. less
