I thought that this would be pretty cut and dried, technical or scholarly; didn't have high hopes. It was well read and interesting. It kept my attention with enough stories without getting too detailed. It came close to too much information when you thought about the families and victims, but the psychology of the penpals was the story. Hope it helps lead to some answers for society. Well read, the narrator seemed to have a good feel for the book.
I must say this book had my emotions all over the place & I loved it! Works of nonfiction are something special in the world of books and most are just the same old same old, but the way this young man and his family dealt with everything was truly amazing. Hearing what these sick, twisted killers did to their victims will infuriate and fasiant you. This book is on my top 10 list of books about serial killers. The narrator did a fantastic job as well.
Great book, makes you think about your surroundings the people you trust. Narrator did a great job as well!
Very uncensored, I tried using this as a "sleep" book. It had the opposite effect, I couldn't sleep I wanted to hear the whole story. The narrator has a great voice that takes on dark and evil tones when reading the killers parts.
This was a great book. I was looking on the internet (as the book was being read to me) so I could see pictures of all the killers that were being mentioned. I was scared after listening to the book but maybe we should always have our guard up.
Very interesting but definitely not for the squeamish. I grew up in Maryland and am praying i stayed away from that stand.
This was one of the best books I have downloaded. I am intrigued by the mind of a serial killer and this took a new approach with pairing the apparent similarities that Anthony had with his SK pen pals as a result of his TBI. Language and graphic descriptions could be very offensive to some, so definitely not something to listen to while kids are around.
Excellent listen! Another fabulous true crime listen!
It is a very interesting book, with a lot of detail to the crimes committed by the serial killers that Tony was corresponding with.
This is a VERY GRAPHIC book. If you have ever been interested in how serial killers think this is great insight. If you are squeamish or don't like to know awful details about murder or rape and so on this may not be the book for you.
