I had to make myself finish this book. Didn't flow that great. I still can't get over how Tyria walked away with nothing in this case. She should be in prison as well. But justice at its finest.

This is the worst book I've ever read. Every letter is about her wanting to make money by her story ! And, her wanting to help Dawn make money off it. She had no remorse for what she did to those 7 men. Absolutely none. I'm sorry I ever wasted my money on this book !

Just ordered this today from Barnes and Nobel because they didnt have it in stock. I have all the other books about Lee. This seems far more interesting and personal so far.

I picked up "Dear Dawn: Aileen Wuornos In Her Own Words" Edited by Daphne Gottlieb and Lisa Kester at a poetry show I hosted with Daphne Gottlieb as the feature. I had no idea she was editing this book and it was a total surprise. I bought it on the spot and it has proven to be one of the most amazing reads I have taken on in years. I cannot say enough good things about this book! I followed Aileen's case and have watched every piece of media I could get my hands on regarding it and this book is BLOWING MY MIND! It is truly an amazing exercise to read through this book and hear Aileen in her own written word writing to a friend from her childhood. I had seen the stacks and stacks of material Dawn had collected from correspondence with Aileen over the years in documentaries. I cannot stress enough how harrowing the task would have been to cull through the sheer vast amount of material to put this book together and Daphne and Lisa make these missives jump off the page in a larger than life way. The body of work remains cohesive and retains a narrative the reader can follow even with all the twists and turns in Aileen's case and her mental state through the years the book encompasses. Even if you don't know anything about Aileen Wuornos and her case, this book is a treasure trove of information that reads quickly and is thoroughly fascinating! But don't take my word for it! Buy this book, read it, and then tell everyone you know about it!! Reading it is like chasing a cat whose tail is on fire down a paranoid rabbit hole. Superbly edited and well annotated! Trust me, you will not be able to put this book down once you crack the spine for the first time. Thank you Daphne and Lisa for giving Aileen a chance to tell her story through Dawn's collection of letters. Her voice is ringing loud and clear, the contents finally surfacing to gain some semblance of shape and form in the light.
