    Review in English | Reseña en español This was just… meh. I am not sure if it is because I’ve seen a lot of true crime shows, documentaries and movies, but I found that when reading about the topic, it just falls short (to this day, I recall being a fan of Unsolved Mysteries and this show scares me for its realness when presenting unsolved crimes).

I am not sure if it is because I’ve seen a lot of true crime shows, documentaries and movies, but I found that when reading about the topic, it just falls short (to this day, I recall being a fan of Unsolved Mysteries and this show scares me for its realness when presenting unsolved crimes). In any case, I felt this book was just a compilation of famous murders and serial killers but it felt more like a listing rather than an in-depth study or presentation. Some of the stories read like Wikipedia entries so obviously this was very disappointed. Sure, the authors could not have presented a very profound analysis of each crime but then… they could have shortened the list, for example. I liked the structure of the book –which divides crimes in historical, classic cases, serial killers, and cold cases, but I think it could have achieved more and it didn’t. The title of the book itself includes the word “Evil” but I think there was no real exploration of the topic, except for very few examples. True, there are some of the documented cases that gave me goosebumps –for example, a German serial killer in the early 20th century (can’t recall the name) or Richard Ramirez, the Night Stalker- but those are the exceptions than the rule. And while surely if one wants to know more about each individual committing the crimes there must be specific books about it, I insist –I felt this book missed a great opportunity to present a stronger psychological analysis in the cases. _______________ Este libro fue bastante regular. No sé si de deba a que he visto ya demasiados programas, documentales y películas de crímenes reales pero me pasa que cuando leo sobre el tema, siento que los libros quedan a deber (hasta hoy, recuerdo con claridad ser fan del programa Misterios Sin Resolver y al hacerlo, también recuerdo el temor que me despertaba por los crímenes sin resolver). En este caso, me pareció que el libro era solo una compilación de asesinatos y los criminales, un listado más que un estudio a profundidad sobre el contexto de los crímenes. Siento que algunos de los casos parecían más artículos de Wikipedia por lo que mi decepción fue grande. SI bien es cierto que los escritores no podrían haber presentado para cada caso un estudio a profundidad, creo entonces que pudieron haber acortado la lista. La estructura del libro me pareció buena –se dividen los crímenes en históricos, clásicos, asesinos seriales y casos sin resolver – pero creo que se pudo haber logrado más. Por ejemplo, el título hace alusión al “mal” pero creo que no hay una exploración profunda del tema, excepto por algunos pocos ejemplos. Sin duda, hubo casos que me dieron escalofríos –por ejemplo un asesino en serie de principios de siglo XX (no recuerdo el nombre) o Richard Ramírez, El acosador nocturno- pero éstos fueron más excepciones que la regla. Y aunque estoy convencida que si uno quiere tener más detalle de los asesinos o los crímenes famosos seguro ya existe un libro especializado sobre el tema, insisto –creo que este libro es una oportunidad mal aprovechada para presentar un análisis psicológico de una manera más profunda en cada uno de los casos.

    I was disappointed in this book. I really enjoyed Colin Wilson's "Manhunters," so I expected this book to be along a similar vein. I found it was more historical and dry, where Manhunters included a lot of psychological theories, which is what I really enjoyed about the book.

    The vignettes were incredibly short with minimal details. Many of them were disjointed with confusing chronology. Additionally, this book could have used an editor for the missing commas and other grammatical mistakes, which made it confusing in places. Don’t waste your money on this book.

    Some of the murderers featured in this book were truly evil. I love reading about them.

    Disappointing If you are a true crime buff who appreciates well written informative literature, then this is not for you. Not bad for someone who has not read much true crime.

    I probably should have finished this after I woke up today, because now I can't sleep. Overall, this was a really interesting read. It was different from most of the other books on crime and serial murder I had read in that it had pictures of not just the crime scene and the killers, but also the victims, maps of important events, and additional illustrated details. Another thing I liked about this read is it not only focused on the crimes themselves, but factors leading up to them and facts tha I probably should have finished this after I woke up today, because now I can't sleep.

    I expected better from the Wilsons. The formatting of the ebook was off--strange margins and headers cut off from their sections--and no amount of font or don't size tweaking helped. The book actually crashed several times while I was trying to read it, and lost my place numerous times as well. There are also many editorial errors, such as hyphenated words in the middle of a paragraph. On top of this, the book has an amazing amount of factual errors. On one page, the victim was shot twice; on the I expected better from the Wilsons.

On one page, the victim was shot twice; on the following page, that same victim succumbed to seven shots. The worst error found was mislabeled photos: Angelo Buono's photograph was captioned as Kenneth Bianchi, and vice versa.

    This was my "hair drying book" as the whole thing was divided up into small chunks that could easily be taken in small doses, hence while I blow-dried my hair. Very interesting, especially since the authors took a look into ancient crimes as well as recent ones. Lots of anecdotes and very precise. Possibly a tad gruesome for some readers, however, if you are squeamish, I would guess you wouldn't be picking up a book called "Evil."

    I had pretty much already read about most of the "evil" people in this book but the splashy photos are what caught my eye. It was written in a somewhat haphazard style with very poor flow. Might be ok for those who don't obsessivly read such things.The bar is a little higher for sicko's like me.

    The book was interesting, but it seemed a bit rushed. There were numerous small (and some not so small) grammar errors, and sometimes the explanations of events failed to coherently explain what actually happened or who a certain person relevant to the event was.

    Interesting Well worth reading, lots of useful information not necessarily mentioned elsewhere about well known cases. Shame it ended. Thank you!

    Very interesting read. I enjoyed that this book had so many different facts about different killers and not just one long blurb about one.

    The pictures are great, and there's a decent variety of killers. It was a bit choppy but overall entertaining and interesting!
