Book Review – Good Me Bad Me


Good Me Bad Me by Ali Land (Penguin) ISBN 9781405923910

This review contains spoilers. Skip it, buy the book, and read it now.

Milly has a new life, a new family, and a whole new identity. This would all be perfect if only she could forget about her mother, the fact that she is a serial killer and the first fifteen years of her life. Or to quote Milly, “The brain of a psychopath is different from most, I’ve weighed up my chances. Eighty per cent genetics, twenty per cent environment. Me. One hundred per cent fucked.”

This book is fascinating. I couldn’t put it down. Written in first person, it makes for an uncomfortable, disturbing read. Milly hears her mother’s voice all the time. Do we ever escape our mothers? Especially if your mother is a psychopath. Is Milly strong enough to overcome her childhood? Just read it already.
