It FELT like the author was trying to sound academic, there was a preview and review of the chapters, too repetitious, and a little insulting. The content was not as interesting as I had hoped. I just didn't like it.

Would you listen to Why We Love Serial Killers again? Why?
Definitely, however, it’s confession time, as soon as I saw the title of this audiobook I was drawn to it like a moth, I am one of those people who cannot resist reading about the people who carry out horrendous crimes. Throughout history there have been plenty of examples both real, and those which have been the product of somebody else’s mind, such as the serial killer Hannibal Lecter first made famous in the book and film Silence of the Lambs.
The author of this book, has however a special insight into its content. Not only is Dr Scott Bonn a Professor of Criminology but he also comes from a media and analytic background.
What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?
The author explores what makes these people so interesting to those of us who look on with morbid fascination at their crimes. He looks into their background, upbringing, and ultimately the people and events which have influenced them. However, he also looks at role that the killers themselves, media and law enforcement agencies have in the public’s perception.
What does Keith Szarabajka bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
Keith Szarabajka carried out a very good narration of this unique and fascinating book.
Any additional comments?
For anyone interested in the subject, this book will be fascinating, famous serial killers such as David Berkowitz and Dennis Rader, and the author has interviewed some of them. There is also a look into the world of their cult followers and people who will pay for memorabilia and work by them, something I never realised happened.
