Content good but narrator dull
The content of the essays were good and very well written. My only issue was the narrator. It was like listening to Batman reading the essays.

What disappointed you about Serial Killers - Philosophy for Everyone?
The voice of the guy that read the text.... could it be any more hilarious??? Its so overly dramatic and hyped up.... for a minute there i thought Nancy Grace or any one of the so called journalists over at HLN were involved.
What was most disappointing about the authors’s story?
It is assuming the listener is a moron.
How did the narrator detract from the book?
If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Serial Killers - Philosophy for Everyone?
START OVER. NO EDITOR CAN SAVE YOU.

The readers voice is horrible. Why is he whispering? I could not get through the first 30 minutes!
