    6. You are evil, said myself You are Mr Monster You are nothing You are me. Well well wellwhat an odd slice of fun this was Simplistic and understated, this book really doesn t try to be anything other than what it says it is, making for not only a fun, easy read, but a very touching one, as well It s not easy to read about a diagnosed sociopathwell, at least not for the average person For me It felt authentic and real I became entwined and engrossed with this character in the You [...]
