My Review of Born to be Killers

I've had Born to be Killers (True Crime) by Ray Black on my Nook for quite some time, but I had just never got around to reading it. Boy oh boy, do I wish that I had just never bothered to start it at all.

This has to be one of the worst written books around, there are spelling mistakes, incorrect grammar, incorrect words used, incorrect information and just blatant made up thoughts and feelings that the author has no way of knowing. In a lot of e-books, I find there are more mistakes than in physical copy books, but this book is just ridiculous.

While reading it I was discussing with other book friends on Twitter how badly it was written and was asked if it was a self published book. I hadn't thought of that and momentarily felt bad that I may have judged someone who had done it all by themselves and got a book published. Nope, this book is not self published and to make matters worse, the author has written 6 books so there is no reason what so ever for how terrible this book is.

In certain places as well the author is extremely judgemental in regards to prostitutes, people who aren't children, different races and women. This book made me incredibly angry for so many reasons.

I could go on listing the reasons this book was basically unreadable, but I won't, I would just advise anyone not to waste their time or money on it.

I started reading this book on the 17th of December 2014 and finished it on the 19th of February 2015
I gave this book 1 star (because you have to) on Goodreads
