Avid general reader with a fondness for British and Irish Writers and world history.
I am amazed that the young man with his multiple problems was given access and encouragement to visit and correspond with some of the most manipulative and evil prisoners - not that Shawcross, et al. wanted anything other than to obtain publicity at any possible occasion. Additionally, the killers were certainly not particularly unique or interesting. There were just the bottom of the barrel. This has absolutely no educational value and is of no worth, whatsoever, in the work of those who study anti-social personality disorder a total waste of time.
The actual story playing out from the accident to the first serial killer contact. You really get to know the main character in this book
Least - the shocking foul language and the disgusting descriptive sexual abuse/murders
Yes. I don't judge all books from reading just one.
Enjoyed it. He is definitely engaging.
Might be interesting to read the follow up to each story.
The foul and disgusting language in this book was shocking. I'm not a prude by any means however it even made me uncomfortable to hear some of it.
The story premise was flawed, but it did not have to be such an empty, tedius listen.
He tried too hard to mimic the serial killer laughs--that drove me nuts becuase he did it so often.
This book would haven never made it to print. The title is an absolute LIE.'You, like the so called Whisperer will learn nothing, NOTHING, nothing about the murders.
Skip this junk. It was horrible!
I ignored the warning about the graphic nature of the book--I'm a true crime buff and I thought I was pretty used to graphic material. But this one went over the top into the pornographic area, lingering with uncomfortable glee over the letters of the killers. I certainly wouldn't recommend that a woman listen to this book and I'm not sure I'd recommend it to men. Unpleasant listening.
hope they rot.
none, its in a category i don't normally delve so i have no base of experience, maybe silence of the lambs for the way that Clarice communicates with Lector to solve a crime, only this is real!
When the boy comes out of the coma, only to be crushed by a horrifically described torture and murder of someone.
I would hope there wouldn't be a film of this book. too much gore, no pun intended:>, unless it focused on the main characters fight to come back from suicidal madness to his triumphant heights on the strip in Vegas, and his families' will to see him survive.
I love stories about serial killers, true crime is my thing but for some reason this book just didn't hold my interest. I kept going back to it but it just never held my attention.
The majority of the book deals with the brain injury suffered by Anthony and it's aftermath, (He believes he met god), than about serial killers. Not really a true crime book. Not what I was looking for. I don't understand the title, it doesn't apply.
