Description

Ambitious, attractive, and full of potential, five young college students prepared for the new semester. They dreamed of beginning careers and starting families. They had a lifetime of experiences in front of them. But death came without warning in the dark of the night.

Brutally ending five promising lives, leaving behind three gruesome crime scenes, the Gainesville Ripper terrorized the University of Florida, casting an ominous shadow across a frightened college town.

What evil lurked inside him?

What demons drove him to kill?

What made him A Monster of All Time?

My Book Review

I chose to read this e-book after receiving a free e-copy. All opinions in this review are my own and completely unbiased.

I like true crime, but I didn’t remember this story. I was young and busy with college and a young child, so I didn’t keep up with the news on a regular basis. So I was happy to read this book when I had the opportunity.

The information about the first prime suspect and how the media affected his and his family’s lives was good information to include. People don’t often realize how horribly innocents can be affected by the media. I also appreciated knowing that he was able to overcome that negative publicity.

Although Danny Rolling’s childhood wasn’t a good one and he had a below-normal IQ, that’s not an excuse for being a peeping Tom or committing robberies, rape, murder and more. He deserved the sentence he got.

I did find the information in A Monster of All Time interesting but I found it repetitive and difficult to follow.
