Perverse 12 year olds...maybe I'm being too hard and not taking into account the subject matter and intention of the book, but if you're looking for a dry compilation of facts presented at a 6th grade reading level, look no further. If you're looking for something a little more sophisticated I think Dr. Suess would do the trick. The book does present good information, and covers the subject of Serial Killers well, it just does it in such a disjointed and rudimentary manner it makes it hard stay engaged. The narrator doesn't help either, and may actually be to blame for the way this is received, for if this book is written at the level of a 6th grader, her literacy is at the level of a 5th grader, and that is being generous. Maybe the most entertaining aspect of the audible is listening to this illiterate octogenarian bite her tongue, mispronounce words, trip over sentences and awkwardly stop and restart due to complete errors in her reading.
He could have expanded upon the retelling of the facts so as to make it not seem like a straight read from a serial killer wiki - more expert insight and speculation and more relation between each killer and their proposed "style" or "psychology" would have made for a more interesting approach. Maybe it's just me, but I think the fascination around serial killers it not just the brutal details and gory truth but the unfathomable acts they commit and our inability to relate - any attempt at an answer to the mystery of "why?" would go a long way.
No...that was not a performance. She fell off the stage before the hook could pull her back.
please give me a credit back
