Reads a bit like a thesis- starts out very detail oriented, and kinda laborious to follow, but very thorough. You can see the obsession Graysmith struggled with- the frustration and desperation to present every single fact. Presents some great theories and plot twists quite objectively. Got a little strained toward the end when the clues ran out, but that can't be helped. Will have to listen again to keep up with all the Darlene Ferrin conspiracies, but am happy to do so. Great book. Movie is a nice accompaniment too.

Modest, mature and engaging.

It's nice to read a book in this genera that is intellectual, honest and informative- no petty peddling of half-masticated ideas, or gross blanket judgments on character. I really enjoyed Moss' narrative and Kottler's contributions, which were unique and effective. I even warmed to the voice artist's cadence (after a while). Very smart book. Highly recommend!

If you want to know about Ed Kemper, watch his interviews on YouTube. There are two. The only new information this book supposes is a disrespectful poke at Ed's penis size. There's also a schoolyard dose of judgment and misunderstanding. A flaccid attempt at research and proof that anyone can write a book. Do not reccomend.

Not his best storyline, but easily forgivable. I hate to put anyone down, but the narrator for this series really does this book- specifically the main protagonist- a disservice. Erica Foster flips between knee-jerk aggressive and moany, neither of which mirrors the dialogue or context. I don't think the narrator identifies with the characters, or understands their motivation. I don't think she reherses either. It's a shame, because the characters themselves are believable and original. I'd definitly recommend the series... in paperback.
