Basement Baby Factory

I cannot even imagine what it must have been like to have been one of the women held captive in this idiots basement, subjected to his nasty raping, torture, neglect, and abuse! And living on dog food! *Cringe* All in his quest to start his own "baby farm" (to keep them). Not to mention the awful things he did to the others that never made it out alive!

This book doesn't go into too much detail at length about each victim and ALL the sufferings they personally endured...which would have surely been gut wrenching. I for one would have liked to have heard much more about this case. It's just SO unbelievable (as in omg) !

This is a GREAT introduction to a killer that you may have not known about, or knew little concerning their deeds. I like that this author strays off the "over-done" path when choosing crimes to write about, and selects these unusual cases. <--- Awesome.

Narrator: I had flashbacks of being in the 7th grade all over again, with someone standing in front of the class reading his book report aloud...emotionless with awkward pausing throughout. Teacher says you get a D- for that.

Terrible narrator, interesting read

Absolutely terrible narrator. Interesting story loaded with facts. Last 5 minutes could be removed as it serves only as advertisement for additional books from this publisher.
