    One thought on “The Jeffrey Dahmer Story: An American Nightmare”

    1. The original title, The Milwaukee Murders, fit this book better than the generic, ubiquitous The Jeffrey Dahmer Story An American Nightmare This is because writer Don Davis goes into great unnecessarily graphic detail about the geography of Wisconsin The reader is, in fact, given an impromptu history lesson regarding the German origins of Milwaukee, placing emphasis on the beer based economy thereof.While it can be said that Jeffrey Dahmer was an alcoholic, having been discharged from the army [...]

    2. This book was horrible in my opinion of course It had a multitude of grammar errors and typos It also left out a ton of details about the case Some of the murders were summed up in a paragraph or two that basically said he did this just like he did the other ones He uses very unscientific and sometimes plain out biased language He keeps calling the mixture that Dahmer gives to his victims a sleeping potion and never says what is in the concoction He talks about rock and metal music as if it s th [...]

    3. This book was pretty disturbing, but it was detailed, accurate and gripping at the same time and a very suspenseful true crime novel.

    4. 4.5 stars.This book, which exposed the facts behind the Jeffrey Dahmer murders back in the 70s, 80s, and 90s, fascinated me It was a terrifying book that would mess up with your mind I would have never expected or anticipated that a human being can do all these kinds of unspoken atrocities to another human being, which include murdering young men and adolescents in horrible ways, dismembering their bodies, necrophilia, and even, the most shocking of all, CANNIBALISM.I was impressed by the writer [...]

    5. After reading a graphic novel about Dahmer, I was intrigued and wanted to know about him so I picked this book up at the library.It started off strong and read like a fiction novel which really captivated me because I knew it was all true, but a third of the way in, it lost that element The last two thirds felt rushed and disorganized It felt like a textbook 3 5

    6. If you re looking for something that contains the straight facts with the occasional pointless history lesson on areas in which Dahmer lived, then this book is for you Quite frankly, for something that claims to be a New York Times Bestseller it leaves a lot to be desired.It was interesting in the way a news report about the subject matter would be, but there was no real insight No hypothesis or attempts to understand the case by Davis To me it seemed to be nothing than a collection of other pe [...]

    7. Well I haven t had a book rated less than 3 stars all year so I guess I was due for a stinker.I started a book club last month for fans of the new podcast My Favorite Murder If you re a fan of true crime, I highly recommend it This book was the first selection and it was not good It reminded me of a few papers I wrote in college thankfully just a few where I procrastinated like hell and when I finally sat down to write, I realized I did not have enough information gathered and I had zero time ga [...]

    8. I left the star rating blank, because I still have hopes that this book will improve I am a little than halfway through reading it and I am yet to be impressed Don Davis writing is that of a pretentious high school jack ass One of the things I love most about true crime books is that they read like fiction One can get lost in the content of a true crime book, and once the realization of its based on a true story stance comes back to the mind, it becomes terrifying However, Don s style of writi [...]

    9. This book was mostly filler based on lazy research I ve handed in many a last minute paper in college that was filled with quotes and pedestrian research and perhaps this is why I was able to see through it There is no information in this book that one could not have gathered by watching news coverage of these crimes, except maybe the pages long histories of several midwest towns that took place generations before Jeffery Dahmer was born My issue with all of the filler is this This guy is one of [...]

    10. This book approaches a topic in which can only be successfully carried out with a lot of research It is quite apparent that the author did his research in order to write this book, but one of the many things it lacks is detail Each topic that is brought up is briefly viewed except for Dahmer s childhood, which is not the main focus of the book Another thing I disliked about the book is a lack of organization It jumps from his childhood to Dahmer s first victim and then to his high school life It [...]

    11. Jeffrey Dahmer certainly was a serial killer that will forever be etched in America s history not the sort of notariety one might seek, but so goes it for the tragic life of Dahmer.I have always been intrigued as to what made this man do the heinous acts in which he committed upon seventeen unsuspecting victims Most of what is reported in this book was just a small fraction of what most of us heard or read about in the news, at the time Dahmer was arrested In fact, I learned a great detail of th [...]

    12. on Sunday, November 13, 2005 I wrote about this book I did read just a bit I had to stop cause when I read about the 14 year old boy Konerak, who ran away with Dahmer following him, and the police believing Dahmer who said the boy was a gay drunk, the boy still had a pair of handcuff s on his wrist and bringing the boy back to Dahmers apartment where he was slaughtered.No this was to emotional for me.on Saturday, September 22, 2007 I wrote further Well I did manage to read it Very sad story and [...]

    13. In general the book was pretty good I just did not understand why the author kept getting into the history of all the places where Dahmer lived from childhood on up I don t know if he was trying to fill pages up or perhaps thought Dahmer s residence and enviroment influenced his lifestyle, but it would have been interesting if he would have deducted all the tire companies, breweries, what happened way back when in Wisconsin or Ohio, etc and filled those pages with interviews quotes from Dahmer [...]

    14. This was an ok book If you go into it knowing next to nothing about the Dahmer case you ll probably enjoy it But I went in with a pretty good understanding of the case already and this book just seemed to gloss over a lot of details Random tidbits seemed to tossed in at the end, that were actually pretty important Dahmer s attempt at creating zombies The contents of his sleeping potion These were significant details that were just paid so little attention A lot of the victims were glossed over a [...]

    15. This book was not what I expected There were loads of useless information throughout the entire book Halfway through I felt I was reading the history of Wisconsin I wanted to read this book mainly because I was interested in the Jeffrey Dahmer story, but was thoroughly disappointed I felt the author, Don Davis, just touched on Dahmer s story and added useless fluff to thicken up the pages I would not recommend this book to anyone interested in Dahmer Unless they were Wisconsin history fanatics.

    16. I went through a literary phase when I was younger of reading true life crime stories and biographies on mass murderers I m not quite sure why I went through this phase save for curiosity on how people could inflict such pain and damage on their fellow man.This was a harrowing account on the crimes committed by Jeffrey Dahmer Not easy reading and certainly not for the faint of heart.

    17. This was obviously published in a hurry to capitalize on the still fresh Dahmer trial, so very little research was done There are errors all throughout, and it s written in a very sensationalist style It s not very objective, either My copy also has a very lurid bright orange cover, which just further adds to its pulpy feel.

    18. I m quite annoyed with this book If you want a history lesson on Milwaukee, definitely read this Way too much unnecessary info Not enough of the info I was interested in It jumps around Not worth reading.

    19. sigh this book was soooo boring It felt like i was reading a bad school report I gave this 2 stars only because it had a few gruesome details but damn, ive never been so happy to be finished with a book.

    20. Not very well written at all The author oftentimes leaves the reader hanging with some of the victims stories cases It was quite frustrating I would like to read another J Dahmer book that is better written than this one.

    21. This book was interesting and there were parts that I enjoyed but the author rambled in parts and gave a lot of useless information on topics which were not really relevant.He glossed over the crimes for the most part and it left me feeling that the whole picture was incomplete.

    22. Contradicting information from everything else I ve read on the subject Long winded and unnecessary back stories on state history and victims random tangents into completely unrelated killers and beer tax prices in 1983 this book is a mess

    23. Not very well written And jumped around a lot Would have liked some organization of thoughts and chronology Also very random history lessons of city s where Jeffery Dahmer was or has been was kind of weird Seems like book was written in a night Very rushed

    24. 2.5 stars The author didn t get the details that I wanted and some were incorrect He had a tendency to slip into the history of beer and the towns Dahmer occupied Interesting story because of the actual case, however the author left much to be desired.

    25. Read for the 2018 PopSugar Reading Challenge Prompt True Crime.This book was all right From a biographical standpoint it was as bland as unseasoned, boiled chicken It was impersonal and un involved but it managed to put all the pieces of this horrific story together in a concise manner I ve read a lot of negative reviews of this book and most complaints tend to be saying roughly the same thing That the text was focused on the history of Milwaukee, Bath, and Chicago than it was focused on Dahmer [...]

    26. It s difficult to give an I Liked It rating to a book like this Certainly it s not the topic of the book that is likeable I was raised in Milwaukee and I was in my early 20s when this whole nightmare went down But being young and self involved with newly found adult freedoms as many young people can be I didn t really pay that close attention to how this story played out in the media I didn t notice the bubbling racial tension that came quickly to the surface because of the police department dea [...]

    27. This book was not that good Don Davis writes too much about the history of the places Jeff has lived and honestly I don t give two shits about that I did like the mention of Ed Gein tho The research could have been better Some things were just ignored like Jeffrey s attempt to create living sex zombies so he would always have someone completely under his control and who would never leave him This is so important if you want to try to understand what went on in his head I also had the feeling Dav [...]

    28. I think this book was decent all and all This book had interesting facts about Jeffrey Dahmer, but could be a drag The story at certain points used the surrounding information well, to make the story interesting But, at other times the background information would consume and take away from the main point of story, Jeffrey Dahmer Although, the story had some boring points, it also had some exciting points, for example when the cops made a mistake of a lifetime In the end, this book was an easy r [...]
