This review is from: The End Of The Dream The Golden Boy Who Never Grew Up : Ann Rules Crime Files Volume 5 (Mass Market Paperback)This book was wonderfully entertaining -- I could hardly believe it was true. Usually I can tell by reading the captions under the pictures in the middle of the book generally what happened. Not so in this case. Ann did her usual wonderful job of taking me through the life of each character. However, when the crime began, the partners in crime changed so much and Kevin still remained such a close friend that I wondered almost to the end if he was going to get sucked into this horrible plan. The book was excellent, Ann did a wonderful job of introducing all of the characters to the reader. For the first time, I felt a little sorry for the criminal in the end (because of the end). Ann had taken me through his entire life so well that I felt I knew him. This book was especially interesting to me because I work in the criminal justice field and was amazed that these guys were able to get away with what they did for so long. I highly recommend this book to any true-crime reader.

You know,these people arent actors. They are real human beings with families and lives. I think its horrible that this book is profiting like so many others on the real life tragedies portrayed to look more like a theme for the movies.

And I am glad things aren't as portrayed in Fahrenheit 451 where books are burned so no one can read them. I appreciate your viewpoint and respect it, but others enjoy learning what prompts people to do what they do, and these books fulfill that need.
