I like the way this book is organised; it separated the lady killers from the child killers and those that kill men and so on. It is really quite an interesting read. It presents the facts in a matter of fact kind of way and really demonstrates the extreme depths of man’s capability for evil.
Personally, as a novice writer, I find this book inspirational in creating characters that are truly barbaric.
