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.
This was pornography, not what I'd expected I only listened to the first chapter. The sample was ample The reader seemed fine. The author may be good as well, but the matter repulsed me.
One of the best.
Cant think of one just yet,
The way he narrated it with such compassion and understanding.

We know there are evil people out there and Alan Sklar narrated it in such a way that he makes us realize how dangerous & soulless people can be, without a conscious but proud of how they tormented anyone who crossed their paths.just for their sick enjoyment.

This is a great listen. The main character has a heartwarming and tragic story in his own right. But the real story is what he does, who he talks to and what they tell him. It is fascinating and I found myself unable to hit the stop button. Warning though: If you don't like a LOT of strong language and sexually suggestive materials, do not buy this. If that doesn't bother you, I highly reccomend it.
