Life long compulsive reader & lover of recorded books
Probably. Although I did not read the print version I believe true crime books benefit from a good narration.
I would recommend this book to anybody interested in true crime in general and Ted Bundy in particular. For anybody who decides to try the true crime genre Anne Rule is a no fail option. I am not a hard core true crime reader but have a taste for it once in a while and Anne Rule has never fail me.
I had never listened to anything by this narrator before. She was excellent here.
"Ted Bundy and Anne Rule: Unlikely buddies"
Worth the listen.
There was too much time given to legal proceedings and too many "final" chapters.
I didn't have a favorite. I thought she did good job giving different voice characterizations.
I can't say I was "moved," but more "astounded" that Bundy could accomplish the massacre at the sorority house in a 15 minute time span without anyone being the wiser.
It took so long for Rule to realize that Bundy was a killer. She sympathized with him far too long and it's hard to believe she couldn't see through him. But then again, I've never been (and hope never to be) in such a horrendous situation.
this is a good book. for true crime fans. kept my interest until the very end
The reader Mispronounced so many things and says NE instead of northeast when referring to streets. Being from Seattle this was annoying. Otherwise well read. The story is Shocking but true and interesting to hear a different side from someone who knew him. An interesting look at our criminal justice system. Also a reminder for everyone especially young women to be alert and be cautious of strangers. My heart goes out to the families of the victims.
loved it. it gave a different insight into a serial killer, one that you rarely get to hear. In ways that makes serial killers even scarier since you see how normal they can seem. Having it on audio book makes it seem like Rule is telling the story to you personally.
My only squabble is that the narrator sometimes mis-pronounced Seattle area place names like Sammamish. If you don't know how Sammamish is supposed to be pronounced, you won't even notice.
the author really frustrated me by not giving more about the victims. she supported Bundy and that's sick this book was long and boring
I couldn't stop listening. I hadn't paid much attention to the murders at the time they were committed. The prolonged length of time during which the murders occurred and the shocking level of pathology are disturbing.
I found Ms Rule's narrative gripping but her prejudices are glaring at times. One need not ban something to condemn it or warn against it.
Narrator was difficult to listen to.
