I really don't get the 5 star reviews of this book! It's so badly written I was embarrassed whilst reading it, and a lot of the information is false or misinformed. Don't waste your money when there are far superior books to read on the subject. Try The Only Living Witness or The Stranger Beside Me
Vor sehr vielen Jahren sah ich beim Durchblättern des Spiegels zufällig ein Foto von Ted Bundy und dachte, ohne zunächst überhaupt etwas von ihm zu wissen: "Der sieht aber gut aus." Dann erst las ich, wer er war. Oh je... Seitdem interessiert er mich, zumal ich fürchte, dass ich auf seine "Arm in der Schlinge" Anlockung auch reingefallen werde.
Das Buch hier geht so. Es wurden die Untaten von Ted Bundy beschrieben, aber mich hätten mehr die Hintergründe interessiert. Die Beschreibung von ihm als Monster ist mir zu oberflächlich. Ja, natürlich war er ein Monster, aber das beschreibt ihn ja nicht. Das ist nur ein label, aber was steckt dahinter? Die Hinrichtung von ihm war mir hingegen zu genau beschrieben. Das muss ich nicht wissen. Vielleicht liegt es daran, dass ich eine Gegnerin der Todesstrafe bin, auch bei Ted Bundy.
Das Buch war auch bei ca 57% des Kindlevolumens zu Ende. Ich dachte, nach der Hinrichtung käme jetzt das, was mich wirklich interessierte: Wie tickte der Kerl, wie funktionierte er. Aber das Buch war dann zu Ende und machte einem weiteren oberflächlichen BEricht über einen anderen Serienmörder Platz....
I am a huge fan of RYan Becker stories and this is one of the top. I have read a lot of books about Ted Bundy but I still learned a couple things in this book. I have followed the case almost from the beginning and read several books on his crimes as well as movies and TV documentaries. What is really frightening is that he could be your next-door neighbor. He was intelligent, charming and handsome and had a way of convincing people that he was a nice guy. He was a monster and it causes you to be leery of all people you meet. One of the oddest things is how he managed to escape from jail not once but twice only to offend again. He is without a doubt one of the most prolific serial killers of all times and I don’t think his name will ever be forgotten. It’s hard to believe that people like this exist and I wonder if they will ever truly get inside the psyche of maniacs like him. Execution was too good for the likes of this monster. The story is definitely worth reading.
This book is essentially a glorified Wikipedia page. There was no new information presented, no new viewpoint, no startling revelation. It's a cursory glance at Ted Bundy from start to finish, with little explanation of who he was or even the crimes themselves. It was also very poorly written -- full of run-on sentences, awkward commas, poor subject/verb agreement, and odd phrasing (such as referring to Ted's murders as "all this craziness"). Definitely would not recommend.
I love Ryan Becker’s writing style. It’s like he’s sitting with you telling the story and it’s a great story. If you love true crime you’ll love this book! If you’ve read about Bundy before, I still recommend this book. Like I said, his writing style is so good that it’s like a fresh new take on the Bundy story.
I was not impressed with this book. Ryan Becker might be a good researcher, but not a good author. The sentence fragments, run-on sentences and erroneous use of the semi-colon had me climbing the walls. He is overly-fond of the word, "heinous." Even though the crimes described in this book were truly vicious and horrific, Becker's dry writing style makes them sound like a movie description in TV Guide.
I downloaded this book free from amazon. It is not a genre I would normally read. The writing was lacking depth and breadth of information, more research could have been done. I was hoping for a more psychological look into the mindset of the killers. Will not read this author again.
