To me, this book seemed to be trying to sensationalize and hype up little known criminals. There was not a lot to the whole "in their own words" bit. It was more of the authors interpretation of pieces of letters written to him by the criminals, that may or may not have been taken out of context because the majority of the letters are not published in the book. It was difficult to finish because it was not interesting and I felt like I was forcing myself to finish it.
I can't finish it the style it's written in is hard to tell who's talking and about what. The first chapter I had to look up the guy he was talking about and I hate not finishing a book but I couldn't force myself to read it. Great book idea but the wording made it boring.
This was a very interesting read! As a true crime lover, I enjoyed reading the correspondence between author and killer. It was a refreshing difference to read correspondence letters as opposed to strict court-room transcript. Great, enjoyable read for any true crime fan out there!
