    Great :D!

    One of my favorite books. Describes the actions of countless murderers and rapists in gory detail, almost as if the author were there himself. Perfect for any Criminal Minds fan!!!!

    This book doesn't really talk a lot about the actual show, just

    This book doesn't really talk a lot about the actual show, just says how some of the fictional criminals in the show are based off real life serial killers, and then explains the real life serial killer in more detail. So I don't recommend this book if you're wanting to read strictly about the show.
    It talked about all different kinds of crimes and all types of criminals. Rape, kidnap, torture, cannibalism, arsenals, bombers, taking hostages, etc. It didn't just talk about adult killers either, but also child killers. It gives details of the crimes which are often very sickening, but sometimes when reading about their lives, especially if their childhood is mentioned, its hard not to feel sympathetic.
    The only thing that disappointed me was that I found out that the BAU team in Criminal Minds is way more badass than real life FBI agents. I guess I should of figured that, though. If you like reading about criminals/serial killers, then you should definitely check out this book.

    (: BEST BOOK OF ALL TIME :)

    I have heard so many great reviews about this book but i have read this book and i agree in so many ways because it explains what could happen even with the nicest person because even with nicest person they could be strait up perverts and thats gross but anyways that could happen at any time ( so never trust any one) thats what i go by and after i read this book i have been a lot more careful around people cause i have realized that there are a lot of stupid freakin people in this world ad when people that murder people and that are cerial killers, well it hurts them more than anything cause they will go hell for their sins unless they seriously get help then go to god for help and he helps yoy to get saved but my religeon is mine and if you dont like what i believe in then oh well cause thats who i am
