An interesting listen
I thought this was an interesting book some of the information I already knew. It was great to listen to the ones I had not. I found the author did his background on the stories writing the truth on each criminal giving the facts as they happened.
I found Jack Chekijian as the narrator to have done a great job. He has a strong deep voice which adds to this type of read. He has a voice that is easy to listen to as he lays the facts out giving this an interesting listen. There are no background noises just a very clean clear audio. There are no character voices but that does not take away from the audio at all. I feel his voice goes very well with this genre giving the correct tones and passion to the read. It is never easy to take these terrible crimes and read them but Mr. Chekijian does and outstanding job making the read feel the emotions and understanding just how these people are and the terrible things they have done. This is the first time I have listen to anything by this narrator. I do look forward to listening to more of his audios.
If you are looking for the fact of a Serial killer you will find them in this book. Their time of Death Row is always longer than it should be. Sometimes they go from death row to life in prison. Is this right you will have to decide. It is also interesting to see what type of death they pick, sometimes they aren’t given a choice. They most always want to live never seeing what they did as wrong. They will fight to the end to stay alive not caring that they didn’t do the same for their victims. I have always been interested in this genre the human mind is something else. I can never understand why they do what they do. Some say there is something wrong with the mind it isn’t normal. One lady did send the brain off but it came back as a normal one. The question is still there why and what makes these people do what they do. Do you blame it on the background, what they had to deal with growing up, or is it in their nature, are they missing something most of us have. I am sure if you are into serial killers like I sure there will be some you will already know and others in this book you will get to meet.
