    1. This is one exceptional novel If you don t read this then you are so not in the cool gang If you read crime novels a lot like me, or even if you don t, start now, with this one Honestly, go do it I freaking loved this book for a million reasons, it messed with my head, blending slight humour through a book about a serial killer is not an easy task, but it was pulled off with finesse Bravo to Graeme Cameron.I loved being in the head of this serial killer.I m not NORMAL.He is the man who lives on [...]

    3. Normal by Graeme Cameron is anything but normal it started with a bang just kept going until about the middle then slowed a bit, this was not for the faint of heart it is very dark gruesome what this serial killer put his victims through was abhorrent it chilled me to my core I couldn t imagine myself being kept in a cage like an animal.DID I LIKE THIS YesBUTWould you believe I actually liked the protagonist I wont go on any further as I don t want to give any spoilers away.WARNING DO NOT READ I [...]

    4. A book written from the POV of a serial killer.woo hoo,I m on board.As soon as Normal was delivered to my kindle,I hunkered down on the sofa and dug in.After a few disappointing hours,my take on the book was as follows, a man with a van, a home in a remote location, mad knife skills and cage in a secret basement YAWN Nothing original,fresh or mind blowing.The serial killer,who remains nameless throughout the book, is basically your run of the mill Mommy s little basement dwelling red pill guy.Th [...]

    6. A book about a serial killer in the eyes of the serial killer I know what you re thinking the morbidness The fascinating concept The potential to show us what it is like on the other side of the fence The opportunity to give us such a gritty, different, and complex story which boggles the mind how the hell did this one manage to bore me the frack out Here s the thing, ladies and gents when we re reading a perspective from the other person when it comes to controversial issues, I expect it to be [...]

    7. I m a big fan of leaving some things to the imagination, but I do not want to have to do all the work I can fill in the blanks with the best of em, but there needs to be a point of reference with which to begin This was like a cryptogram without a key It was all over the place, with no clue as to the whys and the wherefores Bumping it up to two stars for the dark humor which kept me reading.

    8. Firstly, and most importantly, everyone should read this book right now Even if it s not normally your genre of choice, you must read this book, so that you have experienced it too This is definitely one of my favourite books of the year so far It s bloody marvellous It s going to be so hard to review this book, as I really don t want to give much away at all I m not even really sure how to describe it It s a psychological suspense crime thriller with dark humour and a little extra totally messe [...]

    9. 4.5 stars This book surprised me with how much I liked it Not because I was expecting the writing to be bad, or even because I didn t think the storyline would be interesting, but rather because, this story is told through the mind of a sociopath The voice, is one of a killer and as weird and messed up as it sounds, it was a fascinating read and hard to put down This jumped right into the gore, right into the heart of the storyline There is nothing quite like the dark twisted mind of someone dee [...]

    11. Right So where to start First of all for me, this was one of those books that grips you so utterly that you practically live in it In fact I probably have lived in it for the last couple of days even whilst doing the usual life type things like picking up the kids from school hang on, wait, where are my kids I ll be back.Seriously though, this was a marvel of a twisted tale, so addictive that a warning sticker on the front of the book would not go amiss, most horrifically fascinating and with at [...]

    12. GO OUT AND READ THIS NOW Okay, done that Good Now you ll know just how bloody amazing this book is Seriously, it is already on my list of top five books of the year and it will take a hell of a lot to shift it off.It s a novel, unlike many novels you read in the crime genre It s told in first person narrative from the point of view of a serial killer Come to think of it, I don t think we even get to know his name And don t be fooled by how much I love this book, this guy really is a bad guy He k [...]

OMG I have NEEDED to read this book from the second I saw it on Netgalley and went to incredible lengths including stalking and begging to finally receiving a copy from the publishers last week This did not disappoint it was deliciously dark and sick and twisted and funny and wonderful and disgusting and just perfect in everyway except the ending Noooooooo I want I need don t leave me like that.I will be following Graeme very carefully be afraid Mr Cameron and reading everything he ever writes [...]

    14. A debut from the pen of Graeme Cameron which I know has a lot of buzz around it at the moment.The book is about a serial killer who goes around, well, killing young females predominantly It s written in the first narrative from the killer s perspective throughout The point being we get to see his personality, where he s coming from and how s he s feeling as he approaches his kills The opposite of anything akin to normal During such one kill he s stumbled upon by the victim s friend so is forced [...]

    15. Hell yes Normal is a total win I had high hopes for this book and it totally lived up to them.I can t help it, I love getting the story from the serial killer s perspective It s friggin disturbing, yet completely fascinating And it s definitely 100% entertaining.Normal is told from the main character s perspective What s really cool about this is the fact that we never know the narrator s name or age There are little references that kind of narrow it down, but it comes down to him being faceless [...]

    16. This book by Graeme Cameron is named NORMAL.This may be named NORMAL but its anything like NORMAL and its certainly ME that isn t NORMAL Because I got to like a serial killer, OMG how did that happen I was left feeling like I was really not NORMAL and felt unbalanced reading this Its an outstanding debut novel You turn the pages knowing that he s going to kill someone again when they least expect it, it can be graphic and terrible imagined in your minds eye and you end up reading it behind your [...]

    17. In Normal, we follow the day to day life of a man who is seemingly ordinary to outsiders, yet following the story through his own eyes, we see how far from normal he really is This man, you see, is a serial killer, and a good one at that The truth is I hurt people It s what I do It s all I do It s all I ve ever done I m not normal This is one very different book, one thing is for sure, love it or hat it, you will not read a book like this I LOVED the idea of being able to get inside the killer s [...]

    18. The success of the Dexter novels and TV show has obviously started a bit of a trend I m thinking of Dan Wells novel I Am Not a Serial Killer, a story of a young man struggling with his urges, and now Normal, which features a killer as the main character, with limited success at making him a sympathetic character.If you are squeamish, stay far away from this novel Its first pages include a dismemberment and the whole thing includes multiple murders The twist is that our main character who never i [...]

    19. I honestly could not decide between two and three stars However, since I was somewhat entertained and I did finish the book rather quickly I went with three I feel a bit deflated after finishing the book I think I may have bought way into the hype and was so excited for the book that it kinda just left me feeling flat It had a very intriguing story plot, and I was positive I was going to be thoroughly engrossed from the start I just didn t enjoy this book as much as originally thought I would Th [...]

    22. I picked up Normal because I was absolutely fascinated by the idea of reading a love story notice I didn t call Normal a romance novel written in the POV of a serial killer, because I have been fascinated with serial killers for years What makes them tick, how they do it, why they kill people, what turns them into humans that kill and mutilate other humans these are only a few questions that have plagued me since I first heard the term serial killer So it was not a complete surprise that I absol [...]

    23. A special thank you to Harlequin Mira and NetGalley for an ARC in exchange for an honest review NORMAL by Graeme Cameron is told in the first person, an unnamed killer, whose favorite pastime is trolling the neighborhood and abducting women and killing them.From the mysterious front cover, the summary, and the first 3% of the book, I was ready to settle in for a chilling psychological thriller The positives stop here.From this point on, it declines quickly, and if I had not requested it through [...]

    25. How quickly could you spot a serial killer Male Female Young Old In fact, most of us know that anyone of us could be a killer There are obviously recurring themes when you research the lives of these killers dreadful childhoods, lack of love and support, lack of feelings etc etc but very few people think of these things when they bump into a stranger on the street or park beside them at the supermarket Who is standing in line alongside you at the library How often have you seen the same person a [...]

    28. I ve got problems Wow just wow I m so glad that I stumbled across this book From the very first page, it was dark and mesmerizing with a touch of comedic genius The entire story is told from the serial killer s POV and it makes for a truly great story The author never gives a description of what the killer looks like or even his name It s left entirely up to the reader to conjure up the identity of this guy A guy that preys on unsuspecting women and could be out walking among us right now In my [...]

    29. The good thing about this book is that it has an original storyline It s unnamed narrator is a serial killer who sometimes kills his victims outright, and at other times kidnaps them and keeps them in a cage in his basement before he murders them The twist is that, throughout the book, he gradually becomes normal He doesn t feel inclined to kill his latest victim, Erica, as she s quite tough and stands up to him he saves another women, Annie, from being raped and becomes her friend and he falls [...]

    30. GoodReads stars ask us to rate an understood question My answer here is 2 star it was ok I expected to like this debut far than I did Though serial killers aren t often expected to portray humanity I can see how the author went for that here He fell short for me I didn t quite buy the whole premise Improbability and bad men who do good take a skilled author to make the plot work for me There was something lacking here Many of my GoodReads friends really liked this book, giving it 4 stars Read t [...]
