What is horror? Sometimes it's things that go bump in the night, and sometimes it's having a child that is so scarily smart... But also a sociopath. And it's that dawning realisation for the mother in this tale that truly gave me the creeps. The child cannot be other than who she is. Be it amoral or not. But reading the mother slowly gaining the conviction that there is something very wrong with her child is true horror!
Also, I really enjoyed the vague preternatural aspects - is the child really taking to a bird? Is it real, or the overworked mind of mum as she struggles to keep check in a daughter that, like some A.I's, feel that sometimes for their own good, people ought to be culled.
