Starting reading this September 2020 shortly before me leaving for Shanghai. Finished it during my quarantine in Shanghai. I was not truly as impressed as I ought to have been according to all the great reviews. I felt it was a bit turgid with long monologues that felt like going a bit astray.

Colin WIlson knows nothing about psychology, psychiatry, child develoment, trauma, or dialectical materialism, and he puts all his knowledge to use in writing this book. This is full of stupid conclusions, outright factual errors, discredited (or never credited) science, and sheer flights of fantasy. Basically this book is prurient true crime masquerading as high minded study of criminology. It is nonsense on stilts. It starts badly with a comment about male dominance in gerbils (gerbils are matriarchal and the males tend to be more timid), continues at about one ridiculous statement a page until finally flung down. Avoid.… (mais)

Roger Jackson's narration is excellent. If you've never read this classic, I highly recommend his audiobook performance.
