Ay or closing a book then you can face the greatest of humanity with even greater understanding I cannot recall reading a book this well written The book of the year for me and I have read almost 30 books this year alone I ve always been fascinated by Albert Fish and I thought I knew all about him I was wrong Schechter has a way of making you feel Como Abrir Mentes Fechadas like you re there and you can see it all perfectly clear I knew Fish was incredibly depraved and disturbed but the extent of the horrors he inflicted on innocent children was far beyond anything I thought I knew It takes aot to creep me out Fish creeps me out This book creeps me out It s well written and the facts are solid Anyone who is interested in true crime particularly the psychology of serial killers although Fish wasn t exactly a typical case should read this book I do not mind true crime I enjoy watching Criminal Minds I understand why it s a popular genre Many have a certain curiosity for the macabre and delving into the deranged minds of criminals gives us a glimpse of how humanity can go to hell in a hand basket in no time flat My issue with this book was not the content not exactly Sure Albert Fish was a particularly disturbed individual and he did some horrible things If he ived in a current time perhaps he would have been able to receive the help he so obviously needed As a story it was interesting enough But as an overall piece of work I cannot agree with it I can divide my grievances into two categoriesGripe 1 The Writing StyleOddly enough if you read
The Acknowledgements At The acknowledgements at the he dedicated this book to his editor for doing such a fantastic job as always I d ike to have a serious talk with this editor and how much work she actually completed with Schechter Not only were there typos and grammatical problems but the sentence structure and overall The Old Myers Place (Halloween, layout of the book provided a very choppy picture At times it was difficult to read dipping into the realms of high school history reports The run on sentences could have been easily fixed with some added punctuation Or even better cutting whole sections out entirely I think Schechter could have made the same if not a better impact with 100 fewer pages There were paragraphs that did not even relate to the current content There were entire chapters I honestly skipped after I realized he decided to go on a field trip tangent about some other event There are good and bad ways to incorporate related ideas With Deranged it feltike the author could not keep his focus And this Witcheskin led to repetition and over the topong winded theories I think he took a Jack Glass lesson from the Dempseyawyer because it also took Schechter 15000 words and 45 typed pages to get out one statementGripe 2 WHERE ARE YOUR SOURCESI cannot in my right mind give a nonfiction title greater than 1 star if there is no bibliography index footnotes or any recognition from the author that he used outside sources to compile his book Any researcher ibrarian or freakin high school student knows that a source is not credible if they do not cite resources I m not asking for much just some proof that what Schechter presented was factual He did uote some newspapers which was nice However I still wanted those newspapers to be isted in a bibliography or at Me Write Book least a note of which database he used to find the prints Without it I have to say that Schechter painted a fictional portrait of a serial killer The accounts in this book are way too specific to be real It readsike fiction most Cosmological Enigmas likely because aot of it is The dialogue has no basis and plenty of it would not have been recorded in any form So how did Schechter know who said what and when It was conjecture And I m fine with conjecture as At Hells Gate long as the author makes a note of it Erik Larson author of Devil in the White City among others ateast gives us that He adds a forward to his books that ets us know that some conversations were fabricated to help with the facts Any nonfiction writer worth his salt should know this I Do Not Trust Schechter And his ack of refinement in this category really irked me to no end Sure I could do my own research to back up his information but that s not the point of reading nonfiction I should not have to double check the author s work Nonfiction should not come with homework unless you are writing a paper and using it as a source hah For all I know Schechter wrote this book by ooking through blogs and Wikipedia So no Just no. Ter a relentless six year search and nationwide press coverage the mystery of Grace Budd's disappearance was solved and a crime of unparalleled gore and revulsion was revealed to a stunned American public What Albert Fish did to Grace Budd and perhaps fifteen other young children caused experts to pronounce him the most deranged human being they had ever se.
review Deranged The Shocking True Story of America's Most Fiendish KillerCan a book be terrible book can be bad it can be boring it
can be poorly written but ike to think that just by being a bookbe poorly written but I Hunted by Herne (Otherkind Kink: Horned Gods, like to think that just by being a book s exempt from being thought of as terrible Terribleike Ivan Terrible Lady Lorena’s Spinster’s Society like children who are two Terribleike some of the things Ann Coulter and Rick Santorum saySadly Deranged The Shocking True Story of America s Most Fiendish Killer is despite it s eye grabbing National Enuireresue title pretty much a terrible bookAnd worse I didn t find it terrible because of the gruesome subject matter but because it s not only poorly written and it s not only boring but it reads On the First Night of Christmas like a shortcut seeking high school student s book report And by shortcut seeking I mean the type of book report that was written in a hurry by someone not being familiar with the book and relying only on the synopsis on the book s dust jacketThe subject of the book Albert Fish was a serial killer who committed crimes too horrible for me to mention here He was born in 1870 to a supposedly distinguished family that suffered from histories of mental illness After his father died when he was five years old Fish was sent to an orphanage and it was there where the seeds that would shape his future obsessions and behaviors were planted That is about the extent of the man s biography shared in the book Thorough huh More biographical information is given about a German serial killer Fritz Haarmann than about Albert FishThe rest of the book is made up of boringong winded accounts of Fish s two final crimes the city wide manhunt and his subseuent arrest and conviction and it reads P.S. Im Pregnant like everything was simplyifted out of old newspapers And the narrative it just goes on and on and on andLet me save you some time Fish was tried and despite jurors saying they believed he was insane they also believed he should die for his crimes so they found him sane and he was put to death in the electic chair in the Sing Sing Correctional Facility Too bad he wasn t holding this book when they pulled the switchYou guessed it I wouldn t recommend this book to anyone Though his name has faded from public memory his presence is inescapable Personally for me this is one of the most terrible serial killers of all time Albert Fish This is one f d up gramps A detailed story of the difficult hunt for him by the police and of the atrocious crimes he committed in the Tigress for Two (Alaskan Tigers, late 1920s He did not kill as many as other notorious serial killers but his modus operandi and the fact that he got away with it for soong is absolutely shocking This book focuses on many of the cases including the New York kidnappings of Grace Bubb Billy Gaffney and Francis Mcdonnell But the court case will haunt me for a Cult Science Fiction Films long time A few times while reading this book ititerally gave me the chills and I needed to get an extra blanket The fact that no one could ink the missing children from over the years to one another and even though he admitted to his crimes once caught no one can tell for sure how many innocent victims died viciously or were tortured at his hands but it is believed that it is in the 100s The acts that this human monster committed doesn t come close to any fictional character I read about in horror books And if it does the author s got some serious issues
JUST THINKING IT UP IN THEthinking it up in the placeIn a very real sense a cockroach had ed to the capture of Albert Fish My personal opinion about his case He should not have been sent to the electric chair Why Because he was a man that enjoyed self infliction as much as he thrived on torturing children It was probably the ultimate thrill being shocked to death with a self inflicted carved cross on his torso from a sharpened chicken bone and 29 needles that he shoved into his friggen asshole This dude did not deserve to Sailor Moon Episode Lists live but he definitely deserved a slow boring AF death with no excitementHarold Schechter is my all time favorite true crime author This man can write a story so well the fear he brings out of you through his historical storytelling and the facts that are so detailed makes you feelike you are Attentions Throbbing living in that era and reading the daily tabloids I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to gain a better understanding of humanity because facing theowest of humanity without ooking away or shutting a book can make you aware But I don t think he was human If this could happen in the 1920s what could possibly be out there today This is the story of Albert Fish. Lured From The Safety Of Home Into The Jaws Of HellAmerica's principal chronicler of its greatest psychopathic killers The Boston Book Review Harold Schechter shatters the myth that violent crime is a modern phenomenon with this seamless true account of unvarnished horror from the early twentieth century Journey inside the demented mind of Albert Fish pedop. ,

until he was caught by the cop who wouldn t give up the searchThis book will sicken and sadden youhe was caught by the cop who wouldn t give up the searchThis book will sicken and sadden you terms of sheer numbers Albert Fish would seem to be Spinetinglers Anthology 2008 little than aightweight in the annals of crime he was only charged with and found guilty of one murder But that one highly disturbing case the brazen 1928 kidnapping and brutal killing of a New York City 10 year old Grace Budd eventually brought about Fish s confessions to many crimes of kidnapping torture murder and cannibalism mainly perpetrated on young boys and occasionally girls who if prepubescent were similar enough to young boys in their androgyny to suit Fish s predilections No one knows how many victims Fish had during a criminal career that spanned than 50 years beginning with petty crimes and evolving into unspeakable ones that dovetailed into his auto erotic preferences for sadism pain and religious fantasies He may have abused by his own admission 25 to 30 children a year and possibly torture murdered 15 His victims may have numbered in the hundredsWhatever the cas A true crime book that completely Angélique à Québec (Angelique: Original version lives up to its title I don t believe I ve ever read of so appalling a catalogue of crimes before and am shortly off to give myself a good scrub to get rid of their taintAlbert Fish was a harmlessooking old man whose appearance masked a truly depraved personality host to an incredibly Body Image, Eating Disorders, and Obesity longist of sexual and religious perversions amongst other things Fish was a child killer who tortured and ate his victimsI ve never read such a shocking account of depravity but was also surprised by many other aspects of the case The police in the 1920 s seem an altogether naive bunch than those around now when Albert Fish was a monster who preyed mainly on black children by his own admission This book only focuses on the white children The author struggles to stay on topic because of that the book felt disorganisedPeople were so trusting back in the day Yes strange creepy man You can take my daughter to a partyalone I also think Fish should of been studied and analysed before he was elect One of the worse killers ever the chair was to good for him The acts that Fish committed were the stuff that no fictional artist could imagine It takes a specific kind of individual to even come close to thinking of the things that Fish practiced
HIS WHOLE LIFE I AM NOTwhole The Doughboys life I am not person that thrives on theowest of humanity or on being able to stomach the horrific Still I chose to read a book this book which includes all of the above and I could not put it down I read it whenever I could and was captured from the very first words Every period is known not only by its heroes but by its killers as well The author Schechter is an author with true talent It is a given that you will be shocked when reading Deranged Fish the person written about was TRULY deranged but it takes skill to write a book about such a murderous villain and have the book be about the people he affected than about the murderer himself even though the depravity was written about in detail Deranged read 魔法使いの涙 [Mahou Tsukai no Namida] like a mystery and even though I knew who and what the book was about havingearned and read of Fish on the internet I was continually enthralled with finding out when and how this man would get caught and just how sick this man actually was In the beginning we are introduced to the Budd family whose humble Futurity living and innocence makes them a prime target for Fish andearn of their eventual regret in allowing a predator to take their child away We move forward to other families that suffer similar Ouija in Suburbia losses and actually feel their pain as their babies areed into the woods of the never again seen alive The book in its finality gives us the depths of this man Albert Fish and makes no excuses for him though the author makes it a point to tell what Fish felt were catalysts to his bad behavior I know that it takes uite a bit to read about a person Reclaiming Authentic Fundamentalism like this and not hate them and judge them as I read It appears though that the author has asittle judgment as humanly possible as he writes this monstrous tale That in itself is a feat It was enjoyable to read because of these facts not because a person of unseen proportions of degeneracy was on display So I would suggest this book to anyone who d Lenora like to try and gain a better understanding of humanity because when you can face theowest of humanity without running aw.
