liked it

While I liked the writing style and I thought a crime-filled book would be exciting, this book just didn't catch me the way I expected.

Otis Chandler Was it disturbing? Am scared of reading books about killers.

Louise I'm desensitized because of video games and violent movies, so I'm not the best person to ask.

I've heard people say it's disturbing. There is a lot of blood with regards to the murders, but probably more disturbing is the minds of the killers. I can see people being scared of those parts.

Hey Otis!
I am too, and I read this after I'd seen both "Capote" and "Infamous". I thought it was fabulously written. Great book. Read it!
