Diary of a Teenage Serial Killer is a thriller with an interesting, fleshed out heroine, but superficial in it's other characters and with fast paced, but still not very exciting action.

The Good: Diary of a Teenage Serial Killer surprised me. Darla is a surprisingly well fleshed out character for the thriller genre. I was not expecting her motivations and viewpoint to be so thoroughly thought out. The best parts of the novel are when Darla is reasoning and thinking through how she will react to the situations she finds herself in. Jem Fox has done a great job bringing a character to life. She is also a character that can kick some serious behind. It's good when a thriller heroine can walk the walk as well as talk the talk.

The Bad: While the creation of the character Darla is the best aspect of Diary of a Teenage Serial Killer, the rest of the characters are the worst. A lot of this is due to the diary format of the novel. It only gives Darla's thoughts and viewpoint. Still, the motivations of other characters could be drawn better through dialogue and interactions with Darla. None of the others caught my attention.

The scenes of the novel that are most action and thriller genre oriented are definitely not as strong as the sections where Darla is by herself and thinking through her options. The action is fast paced, but not very remarkable or exciting.

There is also one plot element that I did not at all find believable. I won't give it away because it is a big spoiler, but if you read it you will know what I am talking about.

The Bottom Line: Jem Fox has created a great thriller heroine, but the rest of the novel is a bit of a let down.

I like it when I start a book and have preconceived notions about it's topic. And then am proved 100% wrong. From the title of this one, I assumed it would be full of maiming and somewhat random killings. However, it is more an explanation of why and how one becomes a serial killer, especially at such a young age. There's a kill or be killed type of reference. Daddy dearest tried his best to prove to Darla that there is evil in everyone and that everyone deserved to be wiped out. Darla tries to prove to herself that her father is wrong, only to realize that he's partially right.

This was a short story that kept me enthralled through to the end. It's not written like a diary, per se, more like a regular first person story. But you could see how it could have been a diary. A diary of a much older and wiser Darla. Maybe writing things down helped her see how she fell into that serial killer category and how if she wanted to live she would need to change her ways.

I was thrilled to find this book was not what I expected and enjoyable nonetheless. It was a fairly quick read and I would be more than happy to read more by Jem Fox given the chance.

This is one of those books I've had tucked away on my kindle for ages and never read. I came across the title again as I was skimming through looking for something fresh to read and this did not disappoint. It is nothing like you would expect in the mind of a serial killer. A different perspective, from a different kind of teenager. If you're looking for a quick thrill to get your mind going again, this is it.

This whole thing could be considered a spoiler. You have been warned.

Darla was raised up by Daddy dearest that the world was filled with Bad Men who deserved exactly the punishment he dealt out to them. Darla, however, doesn't want to live like that. Although she may skimp a bit on ethics (such as lying about her age to minimize her time in the system), she tries to just skim the surface and be seen as a regular girl living a regular life.

Not what you'd expect from the title, is it?

Read like a first-person diary, "Diary of a Teenage Serial Killer" is a fairly quick and simple read. The action doesn't pick up until halfway through, and the ending is left open but somewhat hopeful. There were definitely some quotable quotes in this book, some unique thoughts I rather enjoyed. It was a bit of a darker read, however, as Darla is read as acerbic, "realistic," and never once happy. I'd go so far as to say she is always, always, grim. But that's supposed to be the result of her upbringing by her father, having trained her into sociopathy.

There was one bit to the premise that made me rather annoyed, and that was the stupidity of the teenagers coerced into porn. None of them thought, "I'm being blackmailed, maybe I should go to the police?" They just went along, and continued to go along because, "The internet is forever." Really? I mean, I know that once it's out there, it could potentially be out there, anywhere, yes. But there's help out there too. It just seems like one of the biggest problems of these characters is nobody thought to get help, they just let themselves be blackmailed.

I won't be reading this book again, and wouldn't recommend it. It was well written, but ultimately fell short of my expectations.

At least the cover is pretty interesting.
