  1. I m going to refer people to Bettina s review I hope she doesn t mind if you do please let me know and I ll remove this My reason for this is she basically says what I don t have the time for right now.The oversimplification is so over the top it s nuts I m not sure what happened to Davis to make her believe everything is so easy, most especially when dealing with a subject like this, but apparently something has.She s far too opinionated on a subject that should have been covered with facts alo [...]

  2. Of course this book is engaging and the subject matter is difficult to present in a boring manner It also isn t overly sensationalist, which is positive and rare in this area The author successfully manages to empathise with the situation without demonising or condoning the crimes.However, although this book is clearly above tabloid level, the author falls into many common traps 1 Oversimplification look what the world did to those poor children, is it any wonder they turned out like that The se [...]

  3. Through this book.I now know who I am.I now know how I got here.I now know why I do want I do.I now have the knowledge, perhaps, to move on Because.I know why I get angry.I know why I get depressed.Recognising that it is not completely my fault means I can step back easier and review any situation I don t think I have read such a valuable informative book.

  4. I feel like the author has picked a hand full of pages, after typing Children who kill into a search engine, then proceeded to print them, bind them, and with a smattering of average banal thoughts, from her highly unqualified head, proceeded to get it published Complete shit

  5. This book was so interesting, even if it was a little tough to get through at times The insight into the lives and minds of these killer kids is captivating and I really learned a lot from this book.

  6. An absolutely amazing read This book has made me want to read from this author, as she truly points out the flaws in society that turned these children into gruesome murderers.

  7. This book retells some sad and sick stores of such broken lives Beyonce that the writing is very juvenile and tedious.

  8. Nonfiction isn t usually my thing, but a family friend, who is a psychologist, thought I would be interested in Children Who Kill by Carol Anne Davis due to my interest in the field of psychology, not children killing The book was thin enough around 250 pages , so I decided to sit down with it I consider myself a slower reader, but I was finished with this one in less than a week It was simply so engaging and thrilling, I couldn t put it down.First, this book is divided into two parts The first [...]

  9. Children Who Kill, by Carol Anne Davis, is a relatively long 396 pages book which looks at the always emotive subject of juvenile homicide The author sets out to explore this subject using in depth case studies of children aged between 10 and 17 The book, as it was published in 2003, is relatively out of date and it does show when it comes to certain cases.This could have been a very good book, it is relatively easy, if repetitive, to read But then it is hard to write a boring book about such an [...]

  10. A great read for those interested in psychology The book provides insight into the psyche of children who kill Unsurprisingly, one of the main factors that drive a child to commit murder is the presence of violence in the child s environment Violence manifests itself in various ways sexual, physical, emotional However, sometimes even in a seemingly perfect family, parents could be unintentionally hindering the normal development of their child Carol gives an example of a boy who is born to a fam [...]

  11. A very well researched and sympathetic examination of child killers, including a variety of case studies where the reasons behind such crimes are examined, and chapters discussing the author s conclusions on the issues raised I was impressed at the apparent even handedness of the discussions a lack of sensationalism and a high level of contextualisation a credit to the writer and an insight into the grounding for her novels , as is the fact the book remains readable despite the difficult subject [...]

  12. The book was written in a rather awkward way I feel like this book only breached the surface on certain cases, and I was confused as to why Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold were not included in this book since Kip Kinkel was, and he was a school shooter whose fame due to his shooting pales in comparison to the incident at Columbine The author also seems to point fingers at the fact that all these children came from troubled backgrounds violent families, dysfunctional families, etc though many do bu [...]

  13. I am doing some research on problematic youth so picked up this book and found some interesting well, disgusting, heart breaking, sickening, shocking, horrifying etc stories and some insight into the topic but I still do not know what makes one child snap and become a murderer and not the other The only explanation she gives is parental carer abuse and at one point she even blames a child s lack of opportunity to masturbate wtf but then every abused child would kill someone and it is by far not [...]

  14. In case you are wondering why it took me so long to read another book, this is the answerBefore you question my sanity, please note that I chose to read this book for forensic purposes only and that I hated reading about the morbid lives of eDreadach child in the text.Dreadful truths aside, this frightening piece does a good job of repeating stories and analyzing relating facts helpful for debate However, I wish there had been facts evidence, profiling rehabilition.I hope I never have to pick i [...]

  15. I won t be rating this book out of 5 stars as I don t think it s appropriate However, it was well written and succinct in terms of information What I ascertained primarily from this book was the fact that if you analyse each child s background carefully you ll find that the most likely explanation as to why they committed such diabolical deeds, often than not, stems from the same source that is, the child hasn t been loved and nurtured by their primary carers and this has spawned sufficient rag [...]

  16. This is a really fascinating intelligent book about children who kill, without the usual hysteria Davis looks in detail at the possible reasons behind each child s actions, and it s so heartbreaking to see just how much child abuse can damage lives.It can be repetitive at times, but is very well thought out and Davis makes a compelling case.

  17. Strangely fascinating book and subject and proof that it s not video nasties or computer games that turn people The ending of the book was a let down for me as it was delving into to diverse a subject trying to explain why people kill etc I would have preferred in the stories if the individual killers Well laid out and easy to read.

  18. It was an interesting read It was most interesting to see the family dynamics that lead children to kill It s also very sad to see how many children are abused and no one steps in to do anything about it Something needs to change in this regard.

  19. An interesting look at a subject that s been attempted many times before The author seemed to care a lot about her topic and in this book, attempts to make people see that children aren t born bad circumstances make them do awful things It s not an excuse, but it is a reason.

  20. Nurture over Nature.Not bad seeds, but bad parenting, abuse, negligence This book explores the reasons this children ended up killing, the author treats them with great empathy and tries to understand their lives and motives.

  21. Parts of this were very interesting to read, but after about half way through became very repetitive with very similar stories, making it feel as though they were just added to make up the number of pages.

  22. This could have been an interesting book but the author s style of writing was so bad that fifth graders could do better I couldn t even finish it.
