I think Sherman is trying to do too many things with this book and therefore does none of them well. There‘s the serial killer who‘s supposed to be the focus, but also a rivalry between Kurt Vonnegut and Norman Mailer, detailed discussions of “hippie culture” and of the area where the murders occurred. It also crossed the line between nonfiction/fiction with all of the dialogue that can‘t be substantiated, presented as gospel. Bailed at 30%-ish.

One of several Ann Rule books I've got going at the moment. Can't stop. Won't stop. I mean...until they go back to the library for a bit and then of course I'll be back for them!!

This is a tough read, but worth it. I am enraged, disgusted, and heartbroken.

Some short #Booker2022 Longlist books leave some room for some other light night reading 😂. I‘m wondering how this will make as a companion piece between The Colony and Small Things Like These. I couldn‘t wait any longer to start this one after some recent Litsy comments. #BlameItOnLitsy

batsy I wanted to read quite a bit of the Booker longlist but I've yet to start 🙈 This sounds like the perfect nonfic book to read for context for Small Things and Colony. 18h
jlhammar Great timing, I think, given your other reads. I loved this one! Empire of Pain was also good and hope to get to Rogues soon. I thought his podcast, Wind of Change, was also pretty great. https://www.patrickraddenkeefe.com/podcast 13h
Christine ❤️ Looking forward to learning what you think of it! And OMG yes, @jlhammar , I had forgotten he did that podcast, it‘s such a great one!! 9h

The I-5 Killer | Ann Rule

WOW!! If you like true crime stories- this book is for you. A true Criminal Minds episode, on steroids, come to life. If disturbing, sadistic, complete soullessnes actions from a human being gets to you- I would suggest you never open this book!

Loved it! The main story is the building of the Chicago World‘s Fair along with the story of the serial killer H H Homes in the backdrop. Both stories fascinating. Very fun and approachable read.
