This book is hilarious and extremely informative of his trials and pitfalls of the journey--not only his physical journey on the trail, but his journey to becoming a man as well.

An Absolute Gentleman

by R. M. Kinder
Sunday, February 24, 2008

"This novel portrays a segment in the life of a serial killer and his relationships with the people he is surrounded by as a professor and an author. The raw honesty about the killer's perspective on other people, in particular women, and his own psychological breakdown of himself was fascinating. This book does not go into much detail about the murders and has a surprisingly sparse amount of violence considering the premise. Instead, the book focuses on the human interaction of a serial killer. Philosophical types will definitely enjoy this novel."
