Publisher's Summary

Few serial killers in history have garnered as much attention as Jeffrey Lionel Dahmer. Although Dahmer killed 17 young men and boys, it was not so much the number of people he killed that makes him stand out among famous serial killers, but more so the acts of depravity that he committed on the corpses of his victims.

In this true crime story, you will listen to how Dahmer transitioned from a loner to serial killer, committing numerous unnatural acts along the way such as necrophilia and cannibalism. Following in the macabre tradition of another infamous Wisconsin serial killer - Ed Gein - Jeffrey Dahmer terrorized Milwaukee for most of the 1980s until he was finally captured in 1991.

Perhaps one of the most frightening aspects of Jeffrey Dahmer's serial killer career was how easy he was able to lure his victims into his trap. Dahmer possessed above average intellect, was conventionally good looking, and usually had a calm demeanor that could disarm even the most paranoid of people. Because of these traits, Dahmer was able to evade justice numerous times, which allowed him to keep killing. Truly, Dahmer was able to fool his family, the police, his neighbors, and even the judicial system into believing that he was not a threat; but during the entire time his kill count increased and the body parts of his victims began to pile up around his apartment.

Purchase this audiobook to listen to a story that is among the most disturbing of all true crime serial killers. You will follow the course of Dahmer's life from an alcoholic outcast in high school to a vicious predator who stalked the streets of Milwaukee. Finally, you will hear about Dahmer's trial, his jail house murder, and the impact that his many crimes had on Milwaukee.

    "A Biography of a Monster"
    If you could sum up Jeffrey Dahmer: A Terrifying True Story of Rape, Murder & Cannibalism in three words, what would they be?

    Grotesque, Madness, Evil


    What other book might you compare Jeffrey Dahmer: A Terrifying True Story of Rape, Murder & Cannibalism to and why?

    Representative of Jack Rosewood's Serial Killer work. Short but thorough. Attention grabbing, well written


    Which character – as performed by David L. White – was your favorite?

    This is a biographical work, there isn't character interpretation. It is well written, and David L. White does a superb job getting the book across as written.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Empathy for the victims, disgust with Dahmer.


    Any additional comments?

    Another Jack Rosewood serial killer biography. Well done, as usual. Narrated well.

    Thanks for the opportunity to listen and offer my opinions on this work!

    A review copy was gifted to me at no charge. In return, I am happy to provide an honest review. Also at no charge.

    "A great listen"

    my only problem with this book is the frequent mispronunciation by the narrator, but otherwise a great synopsis of Jeffrey Dahmer's entire life story

    Story
    "A gruesome, in-depth look into a true monster"
    What made the experience of listening to Jeffrey Dahmer: A Terrifying True Story of Rape, Murder & Cannibalism the most enjoyable?

    It was just a real in-depth look into the life and story of one of the nations most well known and disturbing serial killers. I found it interesting that he didn't show the "typical" signs of a serial killer, per the Macdonald Triad. It was disturbing, knowing that it was all true, but at the same time, fascinating.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I didn't have a favorite character. As this was an in-depth look into a monster and serial killer, well, I didn't like him at all.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I didn't have a favorite scene, as like I mentioned before, Dahmer was a true monster. That being said, just learning about his early teen years into his 20's was really interesting-learning how the monster reared it's head and how he used alcohol to "numb" what he truly felt inside. It's unfathomable.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Dahmer-American serial killer.

    "Murderers need not apply"

    I had to do a paper on Dahmer in high school for a project and this reads just like one you would hear in high school. Most of the info is what you can find online or in videos, nothing new to the world. But for people who never heard or know of Dahmer, then this is a great starter to get them the info they need.

    Where does Jeffrey Dahmer: A Terrifying True Story of Rape, Murder & Cannibalism rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    The book was a real portrait of a killer. It was difficult to listen to at times but captured the essence of the dark character well.

    I love dark gritty thrillers, mystery, psychological, police procedural, and horror with the romance set at a minimum to none.

    "Horrific True Story Narrated By a Great Narrator!"

    I have watched multiple movies about Jeffrey Dahmer however none painted a picture more grotesque than this audio book. Rosewood wastes no time with fluff and goes through Dahmer's life story including the somewhat good, the really bad, and the extreme ugly. It also provided details about why he chose to eat his victims and shed light on his fetishes, which was quite disturbing. I feel like I walked away knowing more about his psychopathic personality too. The section about his high school years was also interesting and surprising to learn what his peer’s thought of him at the time. I have to wonder what happened to his grandma once she learned about who was really staying in her home. I can't imagine the gravity of how this impacted his family. The narrator is top notch and kept a perfect tone throughout the story.

    I recommend this to anyone who enjoys learning about true crime but this is definitely not for the fait of heart. His crimes are the most horrific of all serial killers in my opinion. We should all be thankful that he was caught because killing people to feed his fetishes had totally consumed him.

    "Sounded like a documentary"
    Any additional comments?

    I received a free copy of this book from the author / narrator / publisher and I'm leaving an unbiased review.

    When I read any true-crime book, I want to read a little dramatized version of it. Something where I can get drawn into the story and feel it happening right in front of me. But this book doesn't do that. This one felt more like a documentary. The incidents are described matter-of-fact ly . The victims aren't humanized and the connection is missing. It felt like it is just listing out names and facts. So, as a documentation of the gruesome incidents, this book does fine. And narration too is fine from that perspective. But not what I was looking for in a book from Audible.

    "Best Jeffrey Dahmer information I've seen or heard"
    Where does Jeffrey Dahmer: A Terrifying True Story of Rape, Murder & Cannibalism rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It's in the top 10 of my favorite true crime books.


    Which character – as performed by David L. White – was your favorite?

    No favorite character but Mr. White was an excellent narrator for this book.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    yes, but some parts were awfully gruesome..as expected


    Any additional comments?

    I've read and watched several things on Dahmer so I didn't expect much new information from this book. However, this book did surprise me. It is well written and thorough. It goes into detail from childhood until his death. I would definitely recommend it to anyone interested in Dahmer or serial killers in general.
