Excellent story--I've read everything by J. Douglas. However, this narrator has such a monotonous delivery, and he mispronounces even only moderately difficult words, suggesting he didn't do his homework first. Increasingly irritating, and I gave up.

Where does Inside the Mind of BTK rank among all the audiobooks you???ve listened to so far?
The content was great, and if you can survive the narration, the book is really good. I would say it's in the top 25 audio-books I've listened to. I guess it says something if the content is good enough to -almost- neutralize the narrator? I don't know if I could/would tolerate another

What didn???t you like about Jason Klav???s performance?
Mr. Klav should seek another line of work. He should also give back the money he was paid for this book.

For the most part, this horrific story held my complete attention. BTK's defiance of all the comfortable cliches about what makes a serial killer - loner, history of abuse as a child etc. - gives you a genuine sense that anyone could be capable of terrifying violence. What lets this audiobook down is the occasional - but jarring - tendency of the narrator to mis-pronounce certain words. This mainly happens with place names or technical terms with which the narrator is clearly unfamiliar, but it is a shame that no one present for the recording took the time to correct him. It seems such a minor point, but in some cases the mispronunciations (I particularly recall 'Larry-Nix' for 'larynx') are almost funny, and that reaction is so at odds with the feelings produced by the story as a whole it detracts from the experience.

what a great re count on such a strNge and twisted person. ithank you.
Inside the Mind of BTK is the third audiobook that I have listened to and the third true crime book. The writing is approachable and the narration intelligible Though I found the story to be set in a logical order, the were occasions where the pacing of the story would change dramatically and the author would jump forwards or backwards in time in a jarring manner.
That said, this was a really interesting work which did not glorify BTK or his acts, but rather portrayed him as the sick, pathetic man he is.
