While I did like the way he wove history with fantasy, it was kind of dry and if I had been reading I probably would have stopped in the middle - I'm not that strong a reader anyway, and that's why I love audio.
He got the essential elements correct, history, manner of speaking and writing for the times and all that. Perhaps that is why I thought it rather dry.
All that said, it is clever and worth a look for those who love the time period of history and vampire stories.
I have searched for books that tell about how things were inside the camps, and I have searched for books about the experiments, and the gas chambers.
While most books skirt around those topics - this one hits the full horror head on. First rate account
Wow the things people do just amaze me sometimes. This is a nicely written work of Mr. Phelps. The narrator does a good job except one of his voices bothered me a bit, but that can be over looked.
If you like this one and haven't read his Perfect Poison - please do so. You'll enjoy that bizarre story as much as this one if not more.
It was interesting to hear Koontz talk about the history of this work, his experience with the movie studio, and the new release.
This is a type of story that has been told in different versions before, but this has to be the creepiest I have run across so far. Funny strange and disturbing. Well done.
This contains about as much information as you'd get out of old news articles and nothing more. Very short and just the basics. I didn't even find the narrator's voice appealing,
Most of the book is advertising his other works, and maybe a 15th of the book is on the title story
That's right, this made me giggle with nervous laughter I could not believe how bizarre this woman's actions were. This has to be one of my all time favorite True Crime books as I have listened to it several times. I have also talked to people who couldn't believe it either - mostly nurses believe it or not, and a a few of them have read it on my recommendation - and they were as dumbfounded as I was.
Is there a way to give this book a negative number of stars?
This should have been titled "Serial Killers For Dummies"
If you like reading the dictionary and have never heard of serial killers in your entire life - this is the book for you...but you could still be bored to tears.
For the rest of us - move along, nothing to see here.
I was really pleased with my decision to continue with the second book of this series.
Great sense of action and humor is shown in this and the other two books - and I'm excited that there is a 4th one now.
I think these would be pretty good movie material on the level of something like Hellboy.
Wyman really makes the very tightly written characters to life as they were meant to be.
Entertaining all around.
I really like the way Preston writes and researches his material, but there were some parts of this book that I fast forwarded through. He has much better books than this here - please look for them, they are worth a listen over this choice.
This book makes me wonder how things were for my uncle in the 1930's in reform school. People who were in charge of this place in Florida should be in prison or in hell if they're already dead.
Very well done book. Lessons to learn here.
It wasn't dark and thrilling enough for me - it seemed more like a Harry Potter adventure than a horror story.
The flavor of it was just not right in my opinion
