    I was asked to read this book as our local library is looking to have the author for a visit. About 20 pages in, I wanted to quit. I trudged through 120 pages before finally just quitting. If you did not grow up in MN or live in the area, a lot of this would be new to you. As someone w...

    I have recently listened to the Podcast, Vanished, and it was about this case so I was happy to get this book to review. I commend the author on his research and the time he put into this book. However, it does get repetitive in parts and I found myself skipping some portions. This is ...

    Such a sad story and I think the saddest part of all was that the killer was able to make a plea. He ruined the lives of so many people that his apology just rang false. It's interesting to read that it took amateur sleuths figuring out who was guilty and passing that information off t...

    Where do I even begin with this one? This book was informative and interesting. I was deeply impacted by this (even though not personally) as a child. When this happened, there was a change in the 'it can't happen here' attitude of the midwest and we all became part of the culture wher...

    If you are from Minnesota, the name Jacob will most likely bring a memory of a smiling 11 year old boy in a bright yellow sweater. Jacob became synonymous with one of the most prolific horror stories known to every parent and child alike. We probably all have done our own arm chair sle...

    The whole story! I always read true crime but never see or read the entire. story. This writer is amazing and gives the entire story. He writes about the event and the investigation and the in between. The amazing part is that he keeps you interested and wanting more. Even though he...

    Weird Thankfully, I have never read a another book quite like this one. After trying to make some kind of sense out of what happened, I find out that the entire final 25% of the book is a rehash of what I had struggled with, only now it made much more sense. At the end of the book t...

    Sad Story Book stuck to facts but at times hard to follow and jumped around. Reading "Unspeakable Things" so wanted a background history. I've read many true crime books. Several grammatical errors. Other true crime books I have read have been written better. It's sad that Jacob Wet...
