review 1: GRAPHIC NOVELReading both this and American Born Chinese were my first exposures to graphic novels, a genre I now love! My Friend Dahmer is a five star selection for me because of the uniqueness of the story. Although dark, I loved the original perspective from which the story was told about the teenager years of notorious serial killer Jeff Dahmer. This is another one of the books I thought and talked about a lot after reading.
review 2: The title of the book "My Friend Dahmer" was enough to leave me feeling both intrigued and quite chilled. This graphic novel outlines Jeffrey Dahmer's life in middle and high school all the way through high school graduation. The pictures depict the sad and disturbed teen years of the serial killer. Told in graphic format by
... moreone of Jeffrey Dahmer's high school classmates, the serial killer's family and school life are the focus of the book. The author's assertion that the adults in Dahmer's life failed him is weaved throughout the story. The follows Dahmer as he eventually succumbs into the darkness.While an easy read, I admittedly had to put this book down a few times before finishing. Knowing the ultimate outcome of Dahmer's choices made it too difficult to finish this book all in one sitting. This is a great, fast read albeit disturbing read. If I had to choose a one word description, it would be haunting. less

We get to see a different side of the man the world knows as a killer, through his childhood friend.
Gave insight on what was going on with Dahmer earlier in his life, which it found very interesting.
This was a disturbing book. If you want to read that's okay.
