Interesting, but redundant writing style,

This review is from: Vanessa: A Portrait of Evil (Kindle Edition)
The story was fascinating just based on the sheer fact that it is difficult for anyone to comprehend why someone would do such horrendous, terrible things with seemingly very little remorse. The book does do a good job of explaining Vanessa's family and upbringing along with a detailed account of how she was caught and what happened after. My only complaint about this book is how redundant it was at times. The author used, in my opinion, similar quotes from many people who basically thought the same thing. At times it reminded me of when I had to write a paper for college and it had to be 10 pages long, but I only had 5 pages of real substance so I filled it in with things that weren't necessary to convey my point. I'd recommend this read, but don't feel bad if you need to skip ahead a couple pages as you won't miss much.
