One of my favorite books is called The Alienist, by Caleb Carr. I read this book in my undergraduate abnormal psychology class. Yes, the picture in this post is my actual book from college.
The book is about a psychologist, or an “alienist,” trying to profile a serial killer. In class, we were assigned certain sections of the book at a time so we would create our own profiles of the killer based on the details we had read in the book for that week.
Earlier this week, while I was watching a Warriors game on TNT, I saw some commercials for a new show coming out next week called “The Alienist.” It premieres January 22. I remember liking the book a lot, so I’m going to try to check out the series. Hope it doesn’t disappoint.
I saw the commercial for this show too and thought it was a show about Aliens. Good thing I read this post or I would’ve skipped over the show!
