Here he uses the visits to a social worker by Sheila (I think there were 2 visits in total) to base much of his material upon. He even goes so far as to create conversation between Sheila and the social worker. I'm sorry, but that's just not good fact finding IMO. Sure as a part of the book, but to use it throughout??? Especially to bolster his own armchair psychology.
I've not seen his TV shows, but other reviewers seem to be swayed by this. The books should be judged as stand alone, not based on how much you dig his show. I might try another by him, as I am a fan of the genre. Maybe third time will be a charm.
Writing flaws aside, the story is so fascinating that even though I had seen the Dateline account of it, I couldn't stop reading. What was that woman thinking? I wish I knew.
But I would discourage anyone from getting the Whishpersync Audio for this book. Whoever is the reader is not so good. He reads too slowly and separates almost every single word. It's not realistic, kind of robotic. I will come back and review the actual book when I finish it.
Edit: The reader gets a little better as he gets more into the book. Maybe he's getting the feel of it better?
Author...learn the difference between the words 'amount' and 'number' when used for measurements. "amounts of people" is a no-no as people are not measured by volume (like water) but by number ('numbers of people'). Otherwise, excellent book.
