"Lionel Shriver's We Need To Talk About Kevin was both the most riveting and frightening book I've ever read. Spooky tales of anonymous serial killers or nuclear winters? Please. Those are nothing next to this intimate and chilling tale of a boy gone terribly wrong and the mother who witnesses it by degrees."
