Awful. Self indulgent writer. Wouldn't bother!

The writing is confusing at times.

When I started this book I was concerned at the authors clear bias towards those he interviewed. As the book went on I got used to his voice and greatly enjoyed the chapters. It is clear he is an author who is clear about his opinion on these criminals both negative and positive. The authors voice may not be for everyone but I greatly enjoyed the read and will be seeking more out from this author.

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.

Awful!!! This subject area is one of my favorites, but this book was so bad that I couldn't even finish. I probably only read 70 pages

Very badly written. I had to force myself to read past the halfway point only to find it did not get better. Author has high opinion of himself, but not sure why.

Avid true crime and enjoy going behind the minds of serial killers. This book was horrible! Could not even finish reading!
Sep 27, 2017 rated it did not like it  ·  review of another edition
I thought perhaps this book would provide insight into why these specific serial killers - plus one female who killed only one person and is included in the book for no clear reason - did what they did and how their minds differ from the rest of society. Instead this book proved to be a regurgitation of detail regarding the crimes committed, sometimes in the words of the killers but mostly related by the author. It was poorly edited, as the author was allowed to continually bring himself into th ...more

As someone who felt like she knows enough about sociopaths, both from my psychology major education and my special interest in the fiction world about them, this book does give me more insight of what and who the sociopaths are. All these times, sociopaths has been romanticize by the media. Makes people get interested with them but not in an appropriate way. They ARE fascinating human beings, but not one you would actually like to know personally. Admit it, of all those stories in TV, books or m ...more

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!

I thought the author focused to much on the physical appearance of females in this book, which I thought was totally unnecessary.
