    Who would ever think???

    Never in my wildest dreams would I ever think of anyone volunteering themselves to be tortured, murderd, then cannibalized by a man. I found this book sickening, yet oddly fascinating at the same time, as Armine Meiwes found his cannibalistic meal online in a chat room dedicated to fellow cannibals. This practice goes against everything I believe in, but, from my profession as a nurse, and dealing with many with pshychiatric problems, I found this book fascinating from that viewpoint. This act of cannibalism was not just the sick "pleasure" of eating human flesh, but there's a strong sexual arousal Armine also got from this experience as well. This book is not for the weak stomach, that I'll tell you. My stomach is strong, yet I found some areas very sickening. All in all, I still enjoyed the book.

    Thank goodness for the net???

    Very well written quick read. I kept thinking 'which one is really the guilty party?' You'll shake your head many times while reading this book. How could such twisted people be out there? This is a true warning of the dangers of the net!

    Jennifer Wardrip - Bought for Sister

    I got this book for my sister, who has a weird fascination with true crime, and serial killers, especially cannibals.<BR/><BR/>From the excerpts she read to me, this is a very graphic and sometimes disturbing book. But even more than that, it's the fact that the cannibal found numerous WILLING victims to the ad he placed for someone to murder and then eat.<BR/><BR/>If you've ever wondered if there really are such messed up people in the world, the answer is undoubtedly YES!

    A reviewer

    This book is the story of a real life cannibal from Germany named Armin Meiwes, who met his willing victim on the Internet. While reading this book you will learn all about his childhood and controlling mother, him as a young adult, and his life leading up to his sentencing which includes his famous meal of real human flesh. This book also goes into very gruesome details that turn your stomach while reading. I am usually not the type to actually sit down and read a book, but seeming that I had to for a college class I gave this book a try because true crime is something that interests me. While I was reading the book, every time I would read a page it kept me wondering what is going to happen next! All in all I really enjoyed reading this book, because I never really realized the kinds of people we had in this world. I think its cool to hear what goes on in the mind of a madman. When you're looking for a book, and you're a fan of true crime, I highly suggest this book to you.

    Not Sure About This One

    I haven't read very much of this book. It's the typical story that starts with the childhood of the character then goes into his adulthood. I was hoping for a story full of raw edgy suspense but I am only on page 56 and it just seems a bit dull. Maybe if I would continue to read this novel it would become more interesting to me. However, as of right now I just can't bring myself to continue this book. I really need a book that can grab me and keep me interested from the beginning and this book did not do that.

    Great

    Very interesting book to read because it is very fast passed, informative sticks to the story. This book is really interesting and tells a great story of a sick man. Even though it is a gruesome book it is very intriguing and makes the character almost lovable the way he is portrayed.

    Damn Good Book

    Definietly worth the bucks. Way better than you would think. An awsome look into a world that most people could never make up. This is one my friends HAVE to give back when I loan it out. My only complaint is that is was over to soon. Damn good read.

    Too Skocking To Stop Reading

    I hardly ever read. So for me to say I finished this whole book is a huge deal. If you are into horror movies and serial killers I know you will love this book!! To me it is amazing how some people's minds work.

    Fascinating story

    The story of Armin Meiwes' is very fascinating. However, it could've been written better. I'm not familiar with this author, maybe english is not her first language. I'll definitely keep an eye out for a potential autobiography by Meiwes. Overall, I guess for the price/quality, i'd still recommend reading this book.

    Turned My Stomach

    There are only two books I've read which have literally turned my stomach.. this one, and the story of Ed Gein by Harold Schecter. Cannibal was the sickest. Unfortunately, I made meatball subs for dinner the day I read this book and had a hard time getting them down. I feel that Bernd was even sicker than Armin, because he willingly partook in the preparing and dining of his own sacred body part. Sick! Sick! Sick!
