**'Read it if you dare' Daily Express

The Wasp Factory is a bizarre, imaginative, disturbing, and darkly comic look into the mind of a child psychopath - one of the most infamous of contemporary Scottish novels.

'Two years after I killed Blyth I murdered my young brother Paul, for quite different reasons than I'd disposed of Blyth, and then a year after that I did for my young cousin Esmerelda, more or less on a whim. That's my score to date. Three. I haven't killed anybody for years, and don't intend to ever again. It was just a stage I was going through.'

Enter - if you can bear it - the extraordinary private world of Frank, just sixteen, and unconventional, to say the least.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Wasp Factory Creepy, eerie, psychotic. A great read delving into a twisted mind. True understanding comes in the final pages of the book. Loved the description of the Wasp Factory. Truly imaginative
