Free read The Serial Killer FilesPeople never fail to disgust me this book proves why As a fan of true crime I was so xcited to read this book However once I brought it home from Barnes and Noble I was just about instantly disappointed There s cons than pros with The Serial Killer Files that I almost don t know where to startThe biggest most obvious annoyance I have with this book is that the author is straight up bad at writing I feel like he
to be successful fiction author but just didn t have the chops hence leading him to write subpar nonfiction like *this He notoriously uses the same descriptors over and over again most notably *He notoriously uses the same descriptors over and over again most notably and its variables as well as savage slicing and the annals of crime Without hyperbole he uses the word psycho at least once almost Biblical Hermeneutics every single page He also can t hide his lack of skill with writing when he grossly sensationalizes these crimes often using poor word choice to make the horrific crimes seem as if the author finds them sexually tantalizing He also shows almost fanboy ish levels of interest in a select few of offenders his favorites being Albert Fish Jeffery Dahmer HH Holmes and John Wayne Gacy He talks about these guys so often that he often resorts to repeating their stories without adding new details padding the novel in a way that doesn t hide his lack of skill Pushing the author s obvious lack of talent aside he also can t stop himself from injecting his own opinions and attempting to pass them off as fact which is simply unacceptable in a work of nonficiton In a section discussing the variouslements of culture that society often blames for crimes he defends pornography with all the vitriolic rage of a Red Pill poster He flat out lies and claims that there s no proof that porn negatively impacts it s viewers a claim that has long since been disproved through various studies to be fair this book was published in 2003 the year these studies were being performed or just coming out He also left a sour taste in my mouth by My Life And Work ending the book on a section titled Serial Killer Groupies in which he derisively writes about how its women s proclivity to fall for bad boys and that women s universal taste for these bad boys is a fact of life Again a dull dim witted juvenile man with no intelligence trying to pass off his rejection fueled scorn for women as universal facts Which leads me to my next point anyone trying toducate themselves on the topic of true crime or the actsbehaviorsthoughtsmotives of serial killers should steer clear of this book The Serial Killer Files offers small glimpses into the crimes and motives of the killers but often glosses over major A Light In The Storm elements ofven well known offenses Also with his trite sensationalism.
