Epic, that word gets thrown around a lot, probably at times, too much. But in this case, it is most accurate. Crouch and Konrath are right now the tip of the spear in this eworld we live in. This download has more gadgets on it then on anything I have seen. Plus the disclaimer at the beginning, I love it. Fortunately with aid of heavy medication and an understanding wife I can sleep at night, the recurring plotline just keeps running through my mind, over and over and over: the carnage, the hate

Absolutely blew me away!
I am a fan of Jack Kilborn (J.A. Konrath) but it was my first pleasant introduction to Blake Crouch.
For those who know me, I am a massive horror fan. The grittier, sicker and gorier; the better!
I like books that can shock me and make me screw my face up in disgust or horror and this book did exactly that.
I don't want to spoil it for those who haven't read this but it was an epic read. One of the best I've read in a long time.

This is DEFINITELY NOT for the easily offended

could not stopping read this... was totally engrossed...
it really romps through some horror that made me sit back and swallow hard in some places...
not much is left to the imagination with these guys at the helm...
loved all the links to the times/books chronology etc...
of course now I have to read all the bits in between.
cracking book!

This is one of the best books I have read in a long time.
Crouch and Konrath are fabulous together.
Each of their serial killers is unique and they are the bad guys you love yet love to hate.
I recommend this book and the others in this particular series.

OVERVIEW/ANALYSIS: Serial Killers Uncut is a collaboration between authors Blake Crouch & Jack Kilborn, which originally started as an experiment labeled Serial. The novella was given out for free HERE and turned out to be something of a success story as it was downloaded more than half a million times. Blake Crouch & Jack Kilborn then decided to flesh out the characters in Serial, which resulted in Serial Uncut, a book that was embraced by fans a

I'm not really sure how to rate this book. I feel I am unqualified due to not finishing a quarter of it, but I also feel obligated to let others know what I would have liked to have heard prior to purchasing.

I am not a prude, I do not mind gore or depravity(in the right context), and I'm usually up for anything. So perhaps this review has more to say about myself than the book. With so many books out there that I need to make time to read, as a general rule, if I find me forcing myself to conti

I'm glad I bought this book. It is exactly what I was hoping for, exciting, gory, dark, funny at times... Plus, this format seems like something very special to me, something we will probably see more of. Not only is this book a ride that is well worth the $3.99, it is also a great way to learn about two different authors (three if you count Konrath's pen name, Kilborn) and the rich worlds and characters they've created. Great read.

I'm pissed off. Why? Because I love Blake Crouch's work so much that I keep sinking money into more and more books. And now that I've read Serial Killers Uncut and have gotten a taste of the other authors involved, I now have to read their works. It's getting expensive, but I guess I can't complain too much for the entertainment. ;)

This book is described as a "double novel" and includes two previously published books (Serial Uncut and Killers Uncut), along with a bunch of novellas and short stories by the same authors as a compilation. This book basically includes every Konrath and Crouch character written so far and strings their stories together chronologically.

There are over twenty characters throughout the book who keep running into each other in various stories. Sometimes that got a little confusing, but it helps if y

Wow. This book really pushed the envelope for violence and depravity as far as what I've read to date. It rather caught me by surprise. Once I got over that initial shock, though, I really got into the stories. I'm working my way through the intertwined Konrath/Kilborn/Crouch universe, and this was a quick intro to several of their major characters. Most of these were a lot of fun, and I liked getting to read about the background of some of these individuals to see the paths that led them to the ...more

I was drawn to this book because of the comments and content. I like gore murder stuff like this. I wasn't as disturbed as I expected to be by the killers except for a couple scenes. This wasn't a bad thing, as I said, this is what I enjoy reading. This book is a combination of several serial killers by a couple authors, well worth the read and I'll be getting the other books too. Highly recommend.

I have enjoyed Blake Crouch's other books, so for some unknown reason, I though MAYBE I would like these books too...I was wrong. I couldn't finish the book easily. I'm not one to give up on a book, but I seriously almost walked away from this one a couple of times. It pushed the limits too many times. It's been MONTHS since I've read this book, but I still can't get some of the images out of my head. Every time I see a peach pit, I feel like I'm going to throw up....if you've read this you know ...more

You need to be incredibly deranged to enjoy this book. With death, rape, attempted rape, kidnapping, torture, and more'd have to be completely deranged to write something like this.

With that being said, I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It went into how Luther, as well as his family, became so disturbed. It helped me piece together Lucy and Donaldson's vendetta against Andrew Z. Thomas(I read Stirred before this). It once again had jack in some ridiculous situation that would have ha

Sick and fun with a great ending and fun disclaimer in the beginning of the book. my only complaint was the afterward: if you want read more about these characters, read these books. somehow that made Serial feel like an advertising ploy. The book, however, really moved at a fast, fun, pace.

All the Best of the Best

This was mind blowing - characters from the different series interact with each other, sometimes in pretty gruesome ways. Here, for the first time, I was able to read more in depth about Lucy and Donaldson. What a pair these two are!

Luther Kite had plenty of action. Jack Daniels shows up a time or two, same with Andrew Thomas.

I dosed a time or two reading this, jerking awake because what if I wasn't reading these stories, what if they are real?

I do recommend that you r

This is essentially a collection of stories interspersed with ads for other books to read. As long as you're ok with that, it's not a bad read. And it did make me want to read some of the other books.

Probably not my bag. A bit like eating popcorn at a major traffic pile-up. I have to say, it's a totally gripping read, if you have the taste and stomach for it - so much going on, so many twists and turns and utterly preposterous coincidences and plot contrivances (are there really that many serial killers around the States??). But it really is a thoroughly horrible read - utterly depraved, cruel, sadistic and more than a tad depressing. I would probably read more from Blake Crouch and Jack Kil ...more

This book is only a five star if you have read Konrath and crouch's other books. You could read it not knowing the characters in advance but it wouldn't be as much fun.

Very interesting book. It is a collection of short stories about serial killers interacting with other serial killers. Sometimes they kill each other. Sometimes they kill others together and become the best of friends.

If you are looking for an interesting plot, or a compelling good guy that's going to save the day, this is not the book for you. There are no good guys. This book is all about serial killers killing and torturing their prey. There's very little exposition about why they kill.

I loved this book and really ate it up, Crouch and Konrath are two authors I've just discovered and this is a collaboration like I've never read before. These guys are twisted! It was thrilling and very imaginative. The characters in these stories come from their books and they intermingle in and out. But you won't need to keep track of who is who, just enjoy it. The book stands alone. Fans of horror will love this. Now I have to read their other books too! Not for the faint of heart; it's graph ...more

I normally don't review books, but I thought others should know what they're getting into. My complaint is not about the gore or gruesome antics of the characters in the book, although they did seem to push the limits in some story lines. I purchased this book thinking it was an UNCUT version of a series of books from a few authors of the same genre; compiled to make a mega-read with the addition of content to create character crossover. Although I felt character development was good enough to f ...more

Serial Killers Uncut is the final product of a collaboration between two horror authors: Blake Crouch and J. A. Konrath. The story features 21 of their different characters from all of their series and universes combined. This isn't to say that new readers can't come into this book blind. They CAN, and there is even an index where one can look up a character, what story they were introduced in, and their behaviors/personalities. Throughout the novel, whenever there is time that goes by, the auth ...more

I loved the bits with the killers from the initial novella project and a few of the longer interactions, but overall the tales were disjointed and less than engaging. Had I read all the other various books I'm sure I would have liked this more... especially if I took the time to read them in order while periodically returning to Serial Killers Uncut, when appropriate.
I just don't have the patience (or all the other books).

On one hand, I have never come across such clean & lean narrative, that deals with such sickening stuff. On the other hand, my introduction to Lt Jack Daniels, courtesy her confrontation with two of the most vicious serial recreational killers, left me rather dissatisfied. No more of such nasty stuff, but more of Jack Daniels, that's what I would prescribe to myself.

Hmm what can I say. I think not everyone will appreciate Serial Killers Uncut. It's gross, horrifying - the carnage, all the blood, gore and what humans are capable of doing to each other... I love it!

Interesting, tying all the characters together in one book...making you want to read more. I enjoyed reading about characters I already know and also finding new ones I want to find out more about. Great concept!!
