Kort biografi
One of the most successful podcast producers in the world, Aaron began his career in 2015 with the launch of Lore, which went on to become a breakout hit.

Aside from racking up over 325-million downloads to date, Lore was adapted for two seasons of television on Amazon Prime, and as a three-book set from Penguin Random House / Del Rey. Aaron has also toured extensively, taking the Lore storytelling experience to tens of thousands of people across the country.



I love the fact that these are actual transcripts of the podcast. I ended up finishing the book before I finished listening to all of the episodes and I really feel like I was able to pick up on a few details of certain episodes that I would have easily missed.

Fair warning, I am incredibly biased in Mahnke's favor, so don't be surprised that I gave his "Wicked Mortals" 5 stars. I love the Lore Podcast and Mahnke's narrative voice.

The book itself is an collection of dark and historical vignettes into the lives of killers and their victims. Some stories may be familiar to you, some more obscure. Mahnke is known for captivating his audience with variety.

Only a couple of thoughts:
- I think Mahnke should've combined "The Castle" and "Homecoming" these two chapters into one, just so the reader doesn't have to come back to H.H. Holmes and instead get the whole story all in one go.
- I appreciate how Mahnke always manages to successfully explore the motive of a killer without blaming the victim.
- Like Jack the Ripper, Burke and Hare have been in movies, skits and ghost tours, but Mahnke treats them like the violent opportunists they were. Mahnke doesn't like to glamorize the killers he features.

It's like walking through a gallery and Mahnke is your tour guide. It's quick reading but he doesn't skip the crucial details. These stories are already chilling, but you will find the finer details in the podcast.

It is basically just the podcasts in book form with most of the stories being ones I already knew. But Lore is my favorite podcast so I loved it anyway.
