YMMV / I Am Not a Serial Killer

  • Crowning Moment of Awesome: John killing the demon.
  • Love It or Hate It: Many critics are turned off by the Genre Shift.
  • Moral Event Horizon: Cleaver attempts to asphyxiate Crowley's wife and knocks her out with a blunt object, but it is not fatal. This trope is then lampshaded in conversation when he calls his therapist.
  • Narm: John Wayne Cleaver is such a stupid name that it's kind of hard to get past that.
  • Nightmare Fuel:
    • The entire first chapter explains exactly how a body is embalmed in a mortuary. And it just gets worse the more you read.
    • This whole damn book. Just the style of writing and how the reader gets so engrossed in John's warped mind is almost enough to give someone PTSD.
    • The worst part is, since this death was natural, is that it really has no purpose in the story. Rather than to be a very long detailed Establishing Character Moment for John.
  • The Woobie: John, his mother, the Demon a lot of them really.
