This is the shocking story of Anders Breivik, who, alone, killed 77 people in a one day terror attack on his fellow citizens of Norway. Many of these victims were teenagers who were attending a summer camp. This book is very well written and tells, not only the progression of this mass murderer's life , but also weaves in personal stories of the progression of many of the victims' lives. I thought this was a very important part of the story...so the reader can get a better understanding of the impact of this event.
This is really a very thoroughly investigated book and this writer tells a complete and thought provoking story.
Although the courts found this man sane, I think his own writings and actions prove differently. He is truly a madman with a murderous rage and no empathy for others. He also has an extremely high opinion of himself. The book that he was writing is an example of his disorganized, bizarre and grandiose thought. I was shocked to find that he was only given 21 years in prison... the maximum penalty in Norway. He is most certainly a danger to society and I am not sure what Norway will do with him upon release.
The narrator has a very pleasing voice and is a positive addition to the audio version of this book.

Excellent insight into a horrifying mass murder in Scandinavia and beautifully written. But some parts, i.e. the life story of the perpetrator, could have been dramatically condensed. Nonetheless, I would wholeheartedly recommend this book to anyone interested in the Norway massacre and what led up to it.
Story beautifully scripted - the reader connects with each family sadly affected by this pointless outrage.
Very clear narration. Well written and provides insight into areas I knew nothing about. Chronologically clear and concise.
