30 Books in 30 Days, Vol. 2
Yessss, I am still catching up on reviews from books I read in April. My goal is to be caught up by the end of June; we’ll see if I can do it, especially since in July I’m going to try and read the most amount of books I’ve ever read in a month (31!). It is going to be a Project.*
*I am attempting to do this feat because I want to see if I can, and also because there are so many books this year that I want to read, there isn’t time enough to read them all, and this is an attempt to cram as many in as possible to make some room for more through the end of the year.
This was one of those sale audiobooks I downloaded forever ago and never had a plan for, thought it would be nice to eventually get to, but there was no hurry. That was the kind of listen it was, too. I liked listening to it, and I thought Jensen did a really good job mixing his own experiences in the more memoir sections, and the stories of the murders or cases he’s investigating. I also liked how he didn’t tell all these stories or the stories from his childhood and life in chronological order, but more together as part of a theme. This made it clear why he was telling each story, instead of lulling me to sleep like many told in chronological order memoirs often do.
It’s been two months since I read this, so I don’t really remember many of the stories he tells, but one sticks out. It involved someone finding a body in their house that was put there some time in the 60s and 70s, and how Jensen found the killer (one of his first cases).
If you like true crime, this would especially be interesting to you, because he really gets into the how of what he does and why. It’s very interesting. Will definitely be reading future books by him.
