“Interesting read, I'm a sucker for tidbits of horrible history. However, I can't agree with the majority of her theories and opinions. Though she maintains that she has sympathy for the victims, it appears that she also has an abundance for the murderers, and it seems the majority of her sympathy definitely falls to the latter. I'm not a doctor, nor do I interact with serial killers daily. Nature vs. nurture will probably always be in debate, (and I'd probably agree that it's about 50/50), but Morrison just presents herself horribly in this book (seemed like she believes it's more 99/1 in the nature/nurture department). She appears to heap all blame on nature, disregarding any external forces for murderers. Several times she states that serial killers are not as sly as their media counterparts, however, she mainly showcases the suave and/or good-looking of the breed. Didn't really include any of the mouth breathing, drooling types, who've obviously been bonked on the head a few good times, and started murdering after all that brain damage. Really, I don't know, I just found her writing a little attention starved and meant more to garner shock for her CRAZY career choice (sarcasm).”
