Ted Bundy Insight
on 22 November 2008
I bought this book last week, having an interest in all things serial killer and having read many books ON Bundy I was quite excited at the thought of basically reading his own thoughts his own words, in 3rd person of course.
I finished the book within two days, I was really disappointed. Throughout Bundy is as he always was, manipulative and un-co-operative, skirting around answers and only providing information in a way he felt acceptable and not really dealing with the enormity of the crimes. Reading some of his thoughts, but knowing a good amount of the story, it was apparent he was lying quite a lot, taming things down maybe to make them more acceptable in his mind? He doesnt want to come accross as a weirdo, or a pervert. What was interesting was how aware of personality traits this man was, how he understood psychology and generally how intelligent he was. While we sometimes got a little glimpse into his psyche really it left me with more questions than answers. A worthwhile book to have, just dont expect too much.
