this is a good book. for true crime fans. kept my interest until the very end
A 33 year old with a painfully short attention span. Audible brought me back to reading."
I read multiple reviews that said how awful the narrator was for this book, and I nearly turned away but had been convinced by the high overall rating the book had. I'm glad I ended up doing that. I'm not sure why those people thought the narrator did a bad job. Okay, her male voices sound a little silly sometimes, but the variation in her female voices is great. Her overall narration is very good too.
I'm not big on writing reviews because let's be honest, I'm not very good at putting my thoughts into words. But at the very least I wanted to make sure to do my part to assure people that this lady knows what she's doing. I'll let people smarter than I am review the book itself. (Which is good by the way. One of Ann Rule's best.)
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.
The author's personal connection to Ted Bundy gives this account a fantastic level of authenticity. To me this story is on par with Capote's "In Cold Blood" and Bugliossi's "Helter Skelter". This book is a must for True Crime fans.
I'm a true crime addict. I'm not sure why but it fascinates me. Although, up till recently, I have always preferred television shows and mini series to book or audio books on this subject. My TV is always tuned in to ID (Investigation Discovery). Ann Rule however is a master of the true crime genre. She makes the story come alive. You can see it unfolding as she reveals the bits and pieces that make up the true tale. I usually don't write reviews but Ann Rule has done such a fantastic job I felt like I had too. If you enjoy any aspect of true crime you will not be disappointed with this book. The narrator also does a wonderful job bringing the author's work to life. Her voice sounds like she is the author herself and when she narrates for others speaking, such as Ted himself, she dies a fantastic job of making her voice totally different to be that character. I would highly recommend this book over and over.
