Review:

Chris Watts the Easy Going Family Killer

My Daddy is a Hero: How Chris Watts went from Family Man to Family Killer

In the book, My Daddy is a Hero: How Chris Watts went from Family Man to Family Killer, we receive an exciting and in-depth look into the entire case about Chris Watts, the Easy Going Family Killer. While reading the first 50% of the book, I gained some knowledge that had been unknown to me.

I can’t tell if this is due to me living in Europe that I have missed some information or they haven’t gotten mentioned in the media. I will give a couple of examples here I wasn’t aware of: Chris Watts had deleted his Facebook profile. Besides, I didn’t know that Chris did try to make Shanna miscarry by giving her 80mg Oxycodone. These were two examples of knowledge that was new to me.

What I liked about the book

Chris Watts the Easy Going Family Killer

My Daddy is a Hero: How Chris Watts went from Family Man to Family Killer

 

When I began reading about Chris Watts, the Easy Going Family Killer in the book My Daddy is a Hero: How Chris Watts went from Family Man to Family Killer, this book got “glued to my hands” I couldn’t put it down.

In the book, we get pieces of information about Shannan and her brother when they were children as well as we learn about Chris and his sister when they were kids.

The entire case

In the book, we receive information about the whole situation. I like how the author places a warning before we get into the more visual aspects of the case. The hint might be helpful for people who don’t want to learn about the grisly details that concern the case, thereby, you as a reader will be able to skip that part of the book.

The first 50%

I enjoyed reading the first 50% of My Daddy is a Hero: How Chris Watts went from Family Man to Family Killer. This part of the book was well written informative and very interesting; therefore, I place the book on my list of valuable reads. When I began reading Daddy is a Hero: How Chris Watts went from Family Man to Family Killer, I thought this would turn out to become a five-star review; however, I became very disappointed with the last 50% of the book. But there are some aspects I like about the previous 50% of the book, like how Lena Derhally gives a good description of how Narcissistic personality disorder works, so I didn’t dislike the entire last 50% of the book.

What I disliked about the book

Chris Watts the Easy Going Family Killer

My Daddy is a Hero: How Chris Watts went from Family Man to Family Killer

 

I was very disappointed about the turn the author made in My Daddy is a Hero: How Chris Watts went from Family Man to Family Killer. She went from writing a fascinating book about an awful case but then she began jumping from one subject to another to jump back all of a sudden it felt like it wasn’t the same author who wrote the last half part of the book. The book became unorganized and confusing, besides she placed false statements about Serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer.

Psychopaths vs. Sociopaths

When Lena Derhally speaks about psychopaths vs. Sociopaths, her explanation might make it difficult for people who are not familiar with these terms to acknowledge what she means. Even though she gives a suitable example to the terms, later on, it’s like she is all over the place trying to explain two words from one another and thereby making it more difficult than it is.

Jeffrey Dahmer and Ted Bundy

When Lena describes how serial killers often begin by killing small animals, she gives a few examples. However, her claim that Jeffrey Dahmer killed animals before he started killing people is false. She might have mixed up the fact that Dahmer picked up roadkill to dissect with him killing animals. Jeffrey Dahmer was one of the few serial killers how didn’t kill animals before he killed people. How do I know? Because I have studied serial killers for more than six years. Besides, it wasn’t so thoughtful of Lena to name Ted Bundy as a famous serial killer; it would have been more appropriate to mention Ted Bundy as an infamous serial killer.

Psychopaths Sociopaths and Narcissists

While working as a psychotherapist, Lena should be aware of how all psychopaths or sociopaths are narcissists; she even mentioned Chris might be both a psychopath and a narcissist. People with Antisocial Personality Disorder are always narcissists. However, narcissists are not always (psychopaths or sociopaths) having Antisocial Personality Disorder

Gaslighting

Claiming Chris is gaslighting Shannan when she asks him if he is having an affair, and he replies no that is not gaslighting that is a pure lie to save himself from a confrontation. Gaslighting people is much more sinister than trying to save his butt by lying. Pardon my French.

Extra information

The author, Lena Derhally, often refers to the book “Letters from Christoper”, written by Cherlyn Cadle. I haven’t read the book “Letters from Christopher” because I figured out that the author Cherlyn Cadle was accused of plagiarism by another author. When I figured out that Cadle had copied text from the author Anne K Howard who had written the true-crime book “His Garden,” the book “Letters from Christopher” became a book I don´t want to buy nor read as I don´t want to support plagiarism in any shape or form. However, I have become curious about the author Anne K Howard so, in the future, you might find reviews of her work on Noir Crime.

 

Summary

The book My Daddy is a Hero: How Chris Watts went from Family Man to Family Killer gives an in-depth insight into the Chris Watts case. The book got written concerning the victims Shannan, Bella, CeCe and Nico, and their loved ones. However, if you have followed the case, you might not find this book that interesting as it will depend on how much information you have picked up while the case was in the media. Because the book gives such an in-depth description of the case, it could be for you if you would like to get the entire case refreshed. I have to mention when I look at the last 50% of the book most of it wasn’t down my alley

Why a valuable read with 50% liking of the book?

Again the main reason for me recommending this book is due to the excellent job Lena Derhally does when she writes about the Chris Watts case as she writes in an informative way while still respectful to the involved families.

Is this book for you?

If you want to learn about psychopaths, sociopaths, and narcissism, this book is not for you because the author doesn’t have the facts right.
Besides, if you want to read this book in the hope, you might learn how to protect yourself from people like Chris Watts, this book is not for you. You will not receive any advice or valuable information about how to spot toxic people. However, if you want to know about Chris Watts’s case, the book might be for you.

 

Advice

If you still don’t know if you should buy this book, I’d be honest and say if your interest is in the case meaning just 50% of the book you could find the text in the library and save the money for a book that might interest you 100%
