I went through a literary phase when I was younger of reading true-life crime stories and biographies on mass murderers. I'm not quite sure why I went through this phase save for curiosity on how people could inflict such pain and damage on their fellow man.

This was a harrowing account on the crimes committed by Jeffrey Dahmer. Not easy reading and certainly not for the faint of heart.
The story of Jeffrey Dahmer is about another one of America’s most famous serial killers. It is interesting to note though that his fame did not come from killing all those people, as there are some serial killers who killed a lot more, e.g. John Wayne Gacy, but instead was known for exposing the racial tensions that were already building within a city that was majority minorities. His fame came about from exposing how police officers overlooked many important situations on the basis that he was...more
It's difficult to say that you enjoy a book when you're reffering to a biography about a serial killer, but I do believe that I enjoyed reading this one. Don Davis is one of those writers that really puts his mind into the way he expresses the information. I love finding out about the people behind murders and looking at their motives, upbringing, lifestyles, friends and family.

The only thing that I disliked about this book was that my copy was the 1991 version which was before the trial. Therefore, it didn't touch the subjects of his trial nor his death. It would have made a more interesting read if it was the whole Dahmer story 100%. However a fact about him that I didn't know that I learned through this book is that he was in the U.S Army.. that was very sad.
This was obviously published in a hurry to capitalize on the still-fresh Dahmer trial, so very little research was done. There are errors all throughout, and it's written in a very sensationalist style. It's not very objective, either. My copy also has a very lurid bright-orange cover, which just further adds to its pulpy feel.
I was still in that serial killer mood! I can say that Jeffery was a bit off from the beginning and Ma and Pa should have seen the big RED FLAGS he was waving. Instead of reading this go spend time with your kids.
Good read. Explores the murders by Jeffrey Dahmer. Good stuff. What a sick, disturbed person.
Too sensational
