The characters were good, but this book nee This book isn’t bad. It felt nice to be in his head because he had this certain sense of humour and a nice, short way of expressing himself. There’s a lot of action, powerful description of really weird, gross situations within the first couple of chapters, the main character cuts up a pig and is discovered with the partially dismembered corpse and a saw in his handsand a feeling of alone that I believe is common to the experience of many young people today.
The author balances black humour, farce and emotional truth — a real achievement. But his extraordinary struggle to free himself of his Beast makes him a hero you will never forget. But he still gets letters by Lenny from America.

Thanks for telling us about the problem. Become a LibraryThing Author. His efforts to allyy himself of the Beast make him a hero. Contains some profanity, but an entertaining read about a boy who has a “small” problem that has grown into a 12 foot problem!
