Could not even get through a quarter of this book. Every time a town name was mentioned, the author felt the need to give a complete historical background of the place, repetitively. Over and over I read about the history of Milwaukee. If you want to read a good book on the actual subject of Jeffrey Dahmer, and not a geography textbook, I suggest Brian Masters Shrine to Jeffrey Dahmer. This book doesn't even deserve 1 star, off to the recycling plant it goes.

This book is useless. The author hasn't a clue what he's talking about and obviously knows no facts about the case. The author is against Dahmer. A good book is written by somebody that is impartial to the case - someone that is neither for or against Dahmer.

The author refers to Dahmer as an evil monster etc. The book is solely the opinion of the author and does not state any facts about the case.

I picked up this book and read the synopsis. I laughed because I found it to be fictional rather than factual. After reading only a few pages I had to put it down. I was disgusted at how an 'author' could write such rubbish and claim it to be factual. Even the captions underneath the pictures of Jeff in the book - 'the face of a monster'. Absolutely appauling.

Does this 'author' know anything about Jeffrey Dahmer ?

Many of the "facts" contained such as dates and events were inaccurate. It was published very close to the trial, and it seems that the writer worked so fast to get something out, that he paid no attention to the accuracy of the content. If you really want to read something accurate about the man behind the murders, read "A Father's Story" by Lionel Dahmer. If you enjoy reading a story based on sensationalism, this book is OK. It was entertaining to read, but so is "The National Enquirer."

This book was originally printed in 1991, so much of what is in it has since been argued as rumor, either perpetuated by the media for their sensationalism of the case, or by Jeffrey himself in attempt to lay out a better insanity defense. Nevertheless, it offers a great insight into his childhood, work-release-probation period (a period hardly even mentioned elsewhere) and his inner mind workings...and it's even peppered throughout with historical facts of regions in which Jeffrey lived. It has been updated to include new findings, and even addresses Jeffrey's death. All in all, it's a worthwhile read.

I have read this book before but because it was so many years ago I wanted to read it all over again. Call me morbid but I do enjoy reading books that delve into the profile of a serial killer and this book did exactly that. I must say though I found the end of it slightly irritating as it went on to talk about comparisons of other serial killers and slightly toom away from Jeffrey Dahmer and what was going on throughout his trial. Overall a good read for anyone who is interested in the personal history of a serial killer.

I guess it is hard to write a book about a serial killer that didn't leave any survivors. I was looking to learn more about what Dahmer did between the time he invited a victim to his house to after he dismembered them. There was little about the actual killing ritual.
