  • review: I can only guess what the author meant by stating that a deranged violent psychopath is a 'child of god', but the book does show how a child born in civilisation turns back upon the barbaric and unhinged beastial nature of everything that defines social morals. The language is sparse, and sometimes poignant in thinking and stating things. Interesting end to the novel, though I wished more was written about the character at different walks of life - especially as a child and young teen.,
