I was actually shocked how quickly I got into the story of Ted Bundy and how fast I was able to read half of the book. I really enjoyed Ann Rule’s writing style and it made it easy for me to continue reading because I wanted to know more. I barely knew anything about Ted Bundy when I started reading the book. I knew he had killed a lot of women but that’s really all I knew. After reading all about his life I still feel like I don’t know who Ted Bundy really is. He was able to manipulate people so easy and only show them what he wanted to show them. It
The story of Carol DaRonch stuck out to me a lot because I felt I could easily be in that position. It wouldn’t occur to me in the situation how the person knew what car I owned. I would be apprehensive but I probably would have followed him into the parking lot. After reading this book though Ill probably be suspicious of everyone I meet for a while though.
Another one of the things that really struck me was when Ted said he “detested [Gary Gilmore] for his manipulation of Nicole”(268) and yet he never realized he did the same thing not only to Sharon and Meg but to the women he would kidnap and kill.
