So earlier this year I took the brave plunge and tried Audible.com. I say brave because, firstly I was resistant to trying ebooks (which I have now grown to be very fond of) and I was resistant to trying this method of book deliverance. However, if you’ve read my review on the first ebook I listened to, then you’ll know that I very much enjoyed this method of ‘listening’ to a book, despite the hiccup I had with the second one.
But I jumped right back on the horse and I wasn’t let down this time. Previously, the book I listened to before this, the narrator was too distracting for my liking. Not so this time.
Ted and Ann – By Rebecca Morris (purchase here)
If you’re a true crime fan, and I mean that in the least creepiest sense I can, lol, then you’ll be familiar with Theodore Robert Bundy AKA Ted Bundy. Convicted of killing 19 women in the 1970’s on the west coast of the US, he was and still is one the most written about and read about serial killers. They fascinate us, and we often find ourselves asking why?
I have to say, that I have noticed other comments on the book from those who read the ebook version, saying that they were frustrated by the grammatical errors of the ebook, however i didn’t notice any because I was listening to the book instead of reading.
And… I was impressed. There were things written about that I wasn’t familiar with, things I didn’t know about Ted or about the young child he has and still is suspected of killing, 9 yr old Ann-Marie Burr. Such a sad situation for the young child and her family and friends. You can only imagine how difficult it must have been to go almost 50 years and never know what happened to your child or be able to put her to rest.
I particularly loved the 13th chapter, being a psychology and criminology major, it was nice to hear the talk or personality disorder and psychopathology. It was also not too much for the layperson to have difficulty understanding.
