    "So many well known serial killers in one book."
    What made the experience of listening to The Serial Killer Books the most enjoyable?

    These are serial killers most of us have heard of. There is a lot of information on the killers and their crimes but it doesn't drag on. The cases move from one to another and I got sucked right in from one case to the next.


    What about Kevin Kollins’s performance did you like?

    Kevin was a good narrator. His voice and the way he read was perfect for this type of book.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    There were so many terrible cases here that one couldn't help but be horrified and saddened several times.


    Any additional comments?

    For anyone interested in serial killers, this is a must read. These are stories you would have heard of and are somewhat familiar with. I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.

    "Interesting true stories"

    Jack Rosewood has a knack for telling stories about serial killers and making them even more interesting than they already were. He goes into just enough detail to be able to imagine the horrific events without going so far that you don't want to hear any more. Great read!

    "More Terrifying Than a Horror Movie"

    Jack Rosewood really did his research with this book.
    I watch a fair amount of gruesome tv and some of these cases had me anxiety ridden and on edge at work.
    I usually listen at night alone.. that didn't happen with this book.
    I had to turn it off and finish when the sun came up.
    I'm familiar with most of the high profile cases and maybe a little desensitized due to all the media coverage but Jack still managed to shock me with some of the world's most horrendous sadistic killers.
    This book is well written and extremely graffic.
    Kevin kollins did do a great job narrating this horrifying book but..
    I didn't like the long pause in between chapters.
    I still think it's worth a credit.
    And I have to give it 5 stars just on the scare factor alone.
    I requested this book in exchange for my honest review

    "If you Like True Crime, then you will Love This"
    If you could sum up The Serial Killer Books in three words, what would they be?

    Good True Crime


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Serial Killer Books?

    The Murder Castle was particularly interesting because I grew up just outside of Chicago and had no idea about this history until I heard it in the audiobook.


    Have you listened to any of Kevin Kollins’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No I haven't, but he was very good. Articulate with good pacing.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I was extremely appalled at the way a human being could so callously take the life of another without remorse.


    Any additional comments?

    I was given this book for free by the author/producer for an unbiased review of the material.

    "Alright book, performance could've been better."
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    In my opinion, the non-linear storytelling didn't really work for this book. It would've been better if the author finished each of the stories in sequence, linearly; instead of jumping around.


    What aspect of Kevin Kollins’s performance would you have changed?

    The narrator's voice made it sound like I'm listening to a documentary; which isn't bad in itself, given the subject matter. But I was expecting more of a horror story vibe, which I didn't get from the narration.


    Any additional comments?

    I received this audiobook for free from the author / narrator / publisher in exchange for an unbiased review.

    "Another Excellent Book by Jack Rosewood"
    Would you listen to The Serial Killer Books again? Why?

    Yes I absolutely would. The stories have a lot of details that you don't normally hear in some true crime books.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Serial Killer Books?

    For me, it was the story with the "ice pick" details. I had to turn it off for a while. Whew....


    What about Kevin Kollins’s performance did you like?

    Kevin Kollins's performance was very good. His voice was spot on and didn't irritate me like some do.


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

    Gruesome sick crimes

    "Great listen! Kept me intrigued throughout"
    What made the experience of listening to The Serial Killer Books the most enjoyable?

    The method that Rosewood used to link all of the stories together and organize the chapters was an entirely new and refreshing experience for me. What also stood out was that even though the stories were short, the book included nuggets of info that I had never heard before even though I've read full length books on a number of the crimes included. I wouldn't say this gave the crimes an entirely new angle, but it absolutely fleshed out my perspective in ways that I hadn't previously considered and kept me glued to my headphones. I recommend this book both to those who are experienced true crime readers and those who are brand new to genre.

    This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.
