    • A corpse is actually the perfect friend The perfect pet I feel comfortable with them than I do with real people.Classic John Wayne Cleaver John is your typical teenager, with the added bonus of psychopathic tendencies, an extremely rigid moral code and a wonderful family support system He knows that he wants to become a serial killer but he absolutely refuses to give in and his mom is right there to back him up I adore their mother son dynamic No, Mom, I said No pictures But you re friend s her [...]

    • I got so into this book that I burned off a chunk of my hair trying to read and use the blowdryer at the same time I might take the chunk and mail it to Dan Because Dan is amazing His brain just doesn t work like mine does It s not that the whole serial killer thing worries me if you ask around, you will probably find quite a few of your friends know random facts about serial killers, or Jack the Ripper, or true crimes Who cares about that What amazes me about Dan Wells is the intricacy of his [...]

    • Debo decir que esta saga cada d a me gusta m s y que amo a Jhon Cleaver, se que es un sociopata y es creapy pero me gusta mucho y en este libro todav a m s ya que vemos una parte de el que en los dem s libros no se hab a tocado y que al menos yo cre a que no podr a pasar, desde que le los primeros dos libros tenia much simas ganas de que saliera el tercero son 6 y cuando salio me apresure para ped rselo a la editorial y no me equivoque al pedirlo ya que amo much simo esta historia.Como en los de [...]

    • First Read Sept 3, 2012Second Read Sept 10th, 2015 Sept 12th, 2015Third Read Oct 30th 31st, 2017I don t even know how to process my reaction to this book Wells kicks things up a notch for the apparent finale of his John Cleaver series, but much of this book is actually dedicated to John s relationships to and with other people than ever, John is forced to confront who and what he is and how others see him It s incredible, it s gripping, and it s horrifying And the final revelation of who and wh [...]

    • Who the hell left this bowl of onions here ta re i o 3 dijelu serijala, a ne spoilati itavu radnju.Meni se pri a i dalje stvarno dopada, John mi je i dalje drag lik i dokaz da ne postoje samo crni odnosno samo bijeli likovi Iako je konkluzija Nikoga slabija nego u predhodnim dijelovima, prokleto sam se dobro proveo da bi ta utjecalo na ocjenu Kraj me uhvatio nespremnog, ali je tako er dobar Zanima me kakva je drugi dio serijala.Ocjena Stra no subjektivnih 5

    • I m a little sad to think the John Cleaver series is now over I was really enjoying the socially awkward teenage sociopath and his struggle through high school While the supernatural twist was a good one, I really wanted to know about John and his struggle with others and teenage urges I wonder if there are books like this.

    • I just finished the John Wayne Cleaver trilogy by Dan Wells and here is my ratings for each novel I An Not a Serial Killer Four starsMr Monster Four and a half stars.I Don t Want to Kill You Five stars.I listed my rating because this is what I think a trilogy should do It should build on each book making the next one even better You should never get the feeling that the author is just trying to finish it up or complete for the pay check Dan Wells appears totally invested in each work In fact, th [...]

    • This is the third installment in the story of our intrepid sociopathic monster hunter killer.John has a trying life, as do those who care for himor find themselves in their vicinity For the first two books I fond these books very interesting Here we got very involved in John trying to function in a world that he just doesn t get without seeming too weird, dangerousightening After a while here I burned out on John s frustration The story simply bogged down a bit in the middle We ve traveled this [...]

    • This book didn t scare me, which confuses me because it seems like it did many others, but it thrilled me, moved me, inspired me.First, his characters in addition to John Wayne Cleaver, who s a pretty unique fellow in and of himself, Wells creates amazing characters He doesn t take shortcuts or rely on tropes and stereotypes The voluptuous most popular girl at school Guess what she s not an empty headed bimbo She s smart, reflective, even wise Wayne s mother is neither the denial ridden, emotion [...]

    • 3.5 StarsI have been waiting for I Don t Want To Kill You for what feels like forever I absolutely loved the first two John Cleaver novels and just couldn t wait to get my hands on a copy of the third and final book in this chilling trilogy I cracked this baby open with great anticipation.We meet John only a short time on from where Mr Monster finished and there is another demon in town This time it s after him John has killed two of the demons friends and it wants revenge John spends most of hi [...]

    • Dan Wells doesn t pull any punches in his conclusion of this fun and fast trilogy.I thought the climax worked perfectly because it culminated so many emotional threads that had been set up in the previous books I was completely unprepared for how hard it would hit me The end isn t happy in fact it s quite dark and introspective , but it s exactly what this story needed.As an epic fantasy guy, I d almost given up hope on short novels 500 pages long pleasing me There just isn t enough time to make [...]

    • OMG What a perfect book I don t think Dan Wells can top I Don t Want to Kill You Plot is disturbing, main character is sociopath yet you cheer for him With every book John feels less upset about wanting to kill and can t wait to see what he s going to do next.

    • 3.5For most of this book, it was easily a 4 star It was engaging and entertaining, and I really liked the addition of Marci to the cast She brought a spark, and it was interesting to see John start to make an actual connection with someone.I was a bit frustrated with John now and again, in his hunt for the demons, because I d cottoned on to a couple of things long before he did I can write it off as his obsession making him a bit myopic, but I still wanted to reach through and shake him a few ti [...]

    • After absolutely loving the first and second books in the John Cleaver series, I couldn t wait to get stuck into this one and it didn t disappoint.John s not like other teenage boys He doesn t have real friends, he tries to keep his distance from girls, he enjoys helping his mother in the family mortuary, he s an expert on serial killers, he has a set of rules he constantly recites to himself, and he s a sociopath Oh, plus he s killed two demons Evil demons that decided to terrorise his town And [...]

    • Estava indeciso entre 4 e 5 mas como foi o livro que mais gostei vou dar as 5 o fim ser de uma triologia que come ou morna e acabou mto quente literalmente Para mim o melhor livro da triologia, mais complexo que os anteriores mas sempre com uma escrita muito cativante e cheia de humor engra ada esta mistura entre o policial e o sobrenatural.Pelos vistos o autor est a escrever uma 2a triologia mas nao sei se ser editada por c o Blog FB da Contraponto est parado desde Julho de 2013

    • Cre que el 2do iba a ser el mejor definitivamente, pero en este libro descubr muchas cosas Tuvo muchos momentos buenos, me dejo espacio para pensar, nos dejo todo armado y al final resulto que nos enga o Cuestion que tenemos muchos sentimientos involucrados tambi n Me encanto.

    • Lo empec hace un par de semanas pero no lo anot , me gust el libro, el final es sorprendente la verdad, no me lo esperaba, el cuarto lo tengo en papel, veremos c mo sigue la saga.

    • I Don t Want To Kill You is the third and final book in the John Cleaver series After the awesome debut of I Am Not A Serial Killer and the sheer epicness that was Mr Monster, this book had some mighty big boots to fill In the end this book may have fallen just short of the level set by Mr Monster, but it is still a brilliant book and a fitting a fitting end to the series.I Don t Want To Kill You starts a few months after the end of Mr Monster John is still feeling the affects from his battle wi [...]

    • Algo muy com n en m , es que me aburro f cilmente de una historia Puede que el primer libro de una saga me guste mucho, me anime a leer el segundo, pero para el tercero ya perd todo mi inter s Es por eso que he le do muy pocas sagas a lo largo de mi vida, y usualmente intento mantenerme lo m s lejos posible de ellas Eso es algo que me est gustando mucho de la saga de John Cleaver por Dan Wells, que a pesar de mi nata repulsi n hacia las sagas, sta la estoy leyendo con toda naturalidad y gusto st [...]

    • Minor spoilers for the first book only this is of a review of the series in general I wanted to wait until l finished all three books before writing a review about any of them, because that seemed to make the most sense I enjoyed these books a lot I read them in three days, so obviously I was into it although of course it s of a fun quick read kind of thing and not a life changing omg must recommend feeling First of all, I accidentally read several pages of I Don t Want To Kill You before I ev [...]

    • A curiosidade nasceu com N o Sou Um Serial Killer, a paix o e o v cio com Senhor Monstro e j com saudades que me despe o de John Cleaver em N o Te Quero Matar Dan Wells conseguiu construir uma hist ria fant stica com uma personagem principal s lida e fascinante e com um enredo de prender o leitor do in cio ao fim, mantendo sempre o suspense at s ltimas p ginas.No fim do Senhor Monstro, John fez uma promessa solene iria destruir Ningu m Como Ainda n o sabia Por m, n o demorou muito a formular alg [...]

    • What an ending to a first trilogy John has really grown over the last three books and I am so happy that he is still as broody, clever, ingenious, and warped as he started out in book one However, the slight turn is that there is hope and he has learned to live with his demons and keep them in check Use them for his better advantage on taking care of the demons that exist and continue to wreck havoc among his town.I liked that this book focused on John s romantic side and if he is suitable to ha [...]

    • 4.5 StarsQuite awesome This one I felt, was a little slow paced than the two before it, and in the first half especially is speculation than action Is that a bad thing No, actually There s a lot of character development there.In summation, John has invited this creature called Nobody down to his hometown, completely unaware of what this monster can do though that fact doesn t really hit him until bodies start to drop.He suspects this Nobody is at the heart of two mysteries a chain of unusual s [...]

    • I ve just finished the third book in this series Right in a row Of the three John Cleaver books I ve read, I think this is the best one Or my favorite at least I heard the author say that his intent with the second book was to take this character to a real bottom before he overcame his personal demons enough to combat the external demons In retrospect, that dark place left a bad taste in my mouth Something about a fictional character murdering a fictional housecat changes my all too real percept [...]

    • Hold on to your hats people While I don t expect every book in a series to be better than the previous ones, I do expect to see characters grow and plots thicken Never fear, as this one is every bit as good, if not better, than the others.It s been a month since John s last otherworldly encounter and he s feeling in control of his urges Enough to challenge a demon to come and get him The demon accepts his challenge and the consequences are dark indeed The author through me a curve ball here You [...]

    • Have to rate this one lower because I had the twists figured out pretty quickly one was just too obvious right from the beginning , and I also didn t like that a certain character died.I really enjoy the puzzle aspect of these books John profiles and gets inside the heads of the killers and finds out their weaknesses and from there has to puzzle out the best way to defeat them This book has that in it, but because of the nature of the twists, I didn t feel that the ultimate ending of the book re [...]

    • Este libro fue un tanto distinto, aqui tenemos una monta a rusa de emosiones John siendo como siempre peleando con su demonio pero ya con mas control, enamorandoce, confundiendose, quedandose hueco y sufriendo, sin duda un cambio a los dos anteriores libros.Me ha encantado, la lectura con todo y las descripciones de embalsamiento y los perfiles de asesinos se hace facil y ligera, no se necesita mucho estomago.Ademas el prota se hace mas sociable, lo que nos permite conoser mas personajes y los q [...]

    • Actually 3.5 stars The plot this time around was disappointingly full of obvious red herrings I knew within the first chapter where Nobody was hiding, and it was kind of ridiculous that talented, intelligent John was missing it Similarly, I found the serial killer who John identified as who he could end up being if he made the wrong choices to be a bit heavy handed John was already well aware of the risks of his sociopathy from the very first book It felt a bit unnecessary to make this such a st [...]
