The letters between the kid and the serial killers were interesting. That's what the book is supposed to be about, after all.
You also get hour upon hour of fluff about the kid's injury. Sorry that happened to him, but who cares? Without that filler, the book would run about 3 hours.
A very unique and interesting story. The ending was anticlimactic. But other than that, I loved it. I will definitely read/listen to more by this author.
I'm Irish and proud of it! Father of three beautiful girls, USAF veteran, 25 years in Social Services! Carpe Diem
I enjoyed this book on several levels, the support and love from this young man's recovery from his own misfortune assisted in solving this crime
The finer details of the events and it's protagonist were spell binging
No, I love Kevin Pierce so it's difficult to put any one up against him but i though Alan did a better than average narration.
Yes, the ending was incredibly emotional for me. As a father of three wonderful girls I could not imagine what the parents of these victims went through.
Great book and Kudos to our young man who overcame his life circumstances
Not for the weak at heart, sensitive souls, those who can not tolerate obscene grotesque language and context. Riveting and left me wanting to know more. Hope there is a sequel and the performance was spell bounding.
A must read for sure!
I'd like to know where all characters involved (alive) are now and any new findings or closures.
Hello, my name is Teresa and I'm an addict.
Don't read this book if language, talk of rape, torture or killing bothers you, it is very graphic. The content comes directly from serial killers and no punches are held back. Even I had a hard time with it and thought TMI was added. With that said the story was so engrossing. What does it say about me, when I have a fascination with serial killers. I don't know, but thankfully it is only a passing interest. The author mentions serial killers that I had not heard of both past and present ones. I happened to look the names up to find out what they had done. As morbid as it is, it was also fascinating. As for the story about Tony's tragedy it is amazing how people are able to overcome life, this part of the book was an emotional roller coaster. Narrator is a little monotone, but as you continue on with the story he really fits the part.
I've always been interested in serial killers so this one stood out to me. The book was very detailed and graphic almost to the point some of it was really sickening. I wouldnt recommend this book for someone who isn't ready for details about killing and rape but if you are open minded as I am you should be fine. The book, and true story, talks about a boy that had a traumatic brain injury. He was somewhat isolated due to outbursts and begins writing to serial killers with his families supervision. The book goes into details about what was written to give you a peek into how the killers think.
This guy was awesome at reading
I wish the book was longer

To my friends who are into psychology, yes. To my friend with a weak stomach, no.
It made my stomach turn.
