James Lasdun's account, while terrifying, is told with compassion and humor, and brilliantly succeeds in turning a highly personal story into a profound meditation on subjects as varied as madness, race, Middle East politics, and the meaning of honor and reputation in the Internet age.

Very Entertaining and Enlightening
Any additional comments?
I read this to understand how a stalking situation develops. As I thought, the stalker doesn't wake up and decide to become a stalker; and no one thinks they are the bad person. The first part, which explained the development of the stalking mindset, was the best part for me. I enjoyed 90% of the book, though.
There were about 10 chapters (what, 2-5 minutes each) that I just skipped through because they weren't related to the stalking. They were nice and well written though, the pieces of them I heard.
I don't think rating a book the way you think it deserves makes you a "weird-o" and I gave it 5 stars. That was a silly reason for a reviewer to give it 3 stars. Who is on here judging that person anyway? That is weird. Maybe it's the stalker.
I think the author could have changed his email address. I think he fed her emotionally by replying. If he had stopped completely, after some number of years she probably would have stopped. How exciting to have someone write a book about you; she won.
Nothing every happened with the stalker. She is still out there. So many people die every day in car wrecks - why not her?
The narration was very good, too.
