AVERAGE AT BEST

I guess I hoped for SOMETHING that wasn't printed over and over in every Vancouver newspaper during those years of the investigation/trial. Unfortunately the author seemed to get every bit of info the news. Was written like a grade 10 book report. I guess if you didnt grow up in the neighbouring town to the Pickton farm and read the papers during it all the content MIGHT seem somewhat fresh.

Don't bother.

Really poorly written, repetitious and several times at odds with details reported on documentaries. Narrator may be doing his best with such lacklustre material, but he doesn't improve matters.
