The main character - "Mama" is a despicable human being. She is, in fact, by virtue of her acts - inhuman. And then you remember this is based on a true story. It is sobering to read fiction that is so frightening and imitates life.
As a news junkie and observer of the human psyche, I'm all too aware of the horrific acts humanity imposes upon itself - through acts of war, in the name of religion, and in many instances, via the instability of the mind. The landscape of Mama's mind is dark indeed, and the worst part is she shares it with the people around her. As the reader, we see the results of her warped way of thinking.
I commend Mr. Chitwood for not being gratuitous with his description of the horror. He allowed the story to dictate how much detail was needed. Mama's wrath in itself was bone-chilling enough, and the author did a very good job of conveying this.
