Born Evil - Book Review
"Author of two books and many short stories, J.P. Ransom
is busily writing a series of books called Colla'd Greens and
two more upcoming books including a sequel to Born Evil.
Born Evil is a compact, 150-page book that is printed on
acid-free paper - which may be of interest to the
environmentally conscious consumer. I would categorize
this book as a chilling horror, which involves an infant that is
born evil. Traumatized by early experiences, only
compounds Jonathan's natural inclination - a cruel desire
to cause harm. Unprepared for a disturbed child, his
adopted parents are continually wallowing in deep pits of
overwhelming uncertainty. Rick suspects the truth, but Trish
finds it very hard to imagine or even accept that little
Jonathon is capable of such hateful acts.
I think the book makes a good point that some people are
simply born with a desire to do harm, with no abusive
situation to attribute these urges to. Readers are also
shown how these urges can easily be encouraged through
socially acceptable entertainment and through being
witness to violent acts.
While reading Born Evil, I experienced a wide range of
emotions from anger to sorrow and shock. The conclusion
was exceptional and I look forward to J.P. Ransom's
