'The Nature of Monsters' is part historical novel, part phychological thriller, and does feature a few sexually explicit scenes early on which may put off some listeners. It also centres around the old wives tales that suggest that an unborn child can mutate . Unfortunately, most of the information in each chapter came off as either a movie review or an opinions blog. There wasn't really much science that went into the book, and I'm honestly just disappointed. Only about 3 chapters had a satisfactory amount of real scientific review put into them regarding the various monsters/creatures of interest/5.

: The Nature of Monsters () by Clark, Clare and a great selection of similar New, Used and Collectible Books available now at great prices/5(K). One is left to consider the true nature of monsters, whether created by “scientific” experiments or in fact the victimizers who prey on the helpless. In this acute study of human nature, pride and greed, Clark once again mines the underbelly of London for her treasure: innocence, men and monsters.
