Publisher's Summary

Stalkers, rapists, murderers… all found new opened doors, and a criminal playground for them through the internet, and victims are piling up.
Murder. Kidnapping. Cannibalism. Suicide. All these themes, among others, can be found in these true stories about various killers who have used the internet to lure out their victims. As you listen to this book, you will find the most shocking lives led by men and women from around the world. These true stories are from different years and areas. Places where these crimes are committed vary - mostly from the United States, United Kingdom, and Germany.
The stories are written in a way to help you understand the killer better by exposing his or her background and the reason(s) which led him or her to commit their murders. These types of killers are identified as people who are motivated by a psychological factor: some murders are triggered by anger or jealousy, others are just a way to seek attention, and some are merely committed for the thrill of the kill.

Not bad…

There are many interesting stories in this book. If the stories were longer, it would have made it much better. Overall, I would recommend this to others.
Some of the grammar was pretty bad. "from which they came from"

Educational for Parents

Where does Social Media Monsters rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I listen to way to many books, and have far to many favorites to put this in a number slot. So I can say this it's in the to 10% of interesting reads.


What other book might you compare Social Media Monsters to and why?

The Vampire Next Door by T. J. Hunter. Same narrator, which I liked. Same publisher, which may also mean the same editor, but the styling is good in both books.


Which scene was your favorite?

This book is a series of short stories. I don't have a favorite scene, I do have a favorite effect. I played this book with my 13 year old daughter in the room, who I have been trying to educate on the dangers of talking to people you don't know online. The author emphasizes this point and many others to parents and teens at the end of the book. It explains why it is dangerous, and what are the best ways to protect yourself.


If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

"Stranger danger is more real online than in person."


Any additional comments?

This is a true crime book. I know, I'm stating the obvious, but I have a point. There is nothing light, fluffy, or redeeming in human nature to be found in books like this one. If you are easily disturbed by the ugliness in the world, please take a moment to consider the topic. This book is a great tool to exemplify why we need to teach our children about internet safety.
