There have been few female serial killers, but Aileen Wuornos, who was executed in 2002, was a remarkable example of this rare breed of death-row inmate. All too often, female prostitutes have been the victims of male serial killers - Wuornos’ killings were the inverse of this pattern. After escaping an abusive childhood at the hands of her grandparents, she became a child prostitute, progressing into a disastrous adulthood of prostitution and damaging affairs with both men and women. Her eventual metamorphosis from victim to attacker had brutal consequences: a stream of dead men. This is her story, as told to Christopher Berry-Dee, editor of The New Criminologist and director of Britain's Criminology Research Centre.

Narration ruins the story. Don't bother
If you are interested in the fascinating story of Aileen Wuornos, find another book. There are better ones out there. Monster is supposed to be Aileen Wuornos' account of the murders but it is mostly a reporting of the murders with her words injected in. This is no different from other the other books on the same subject. The problem with this book is that the male british narrator droned on, generating all of the enthusiasm in me that that my college statistics professor did. At the very least, having a woman speak the parts of Aileen would have made the book so much more "readable". I couldn't get through half of it.

First person account of why and how the famous "Monster" prostitute went about killing several of her Johns. If ever an insane person was wrongly put to death, it was this one. She is not the run of the mill evil sociopath.
