Review:

The short life of Brandy DuVall

No Angels: The Short Life and Brutal Death of Brandaline Rose Duvall

 

The book No Angles: The Short Life and Brutal Death of Brandaline Rose Duvall is a graphic read. As readers, we are spared no information. I have to say Steve Jackson manages to get deep under his readers’ skin with this nonfiction book. Personally, I have read a lot of real crime books; however, this book has been one of the most brutal and detailed books I have read to this date.

I´m not that into books about gangs, so I didn´t know what to expect with No Angles: The Short Life and Brutal Death of Brandaline Rose Duvall; however, I began reading this book, I found it difficult to put it down. Even though we receive graphic descriptions about the rape, torture, and murder of Brandy Duvall, the books leave the reader disgusted by the evil deads feeling heartbroken for the young girl. In contrast, we learn how the families of the five perpetrators families felt. Most noteworthy is how Steve Jackson manages to tell about the predator’s families without wanting us to feel sorry for the perpetrators themselves but give us a view of how their families feel.

 

Pros and cons

Pros

This is the first book I ever have read about gangs where I turned page after page without feeling that the book got dry in any way. The author has managed to make even the courtroom information interesting, and I have to say not many authors have that ability; however, Steve Jackson has managed this most finely.

No Angles: The Short Life and Brutal Death of Brandaline Rose Duvall is on point nothing is sugarcoated. And the author, Steve Jackson, tells how hard it was for him looking into this case. The awful case of Brandy Duvall made Steve Jackson feel so sickening that he had to stop looking into true crime for a long time.

And I defiantly understand Mr. Jackson as the book describes in detail every single nightmare Brandy Duvall had to live through until her awful death.

However, even though the book is graphic in nature, Mr. Jackson is respectful towards Brandy Duvall, and I like how he keeps respecting the life of this young girl throughout the entire book.

 

Cons

If you are a vivid reader of true crime and have a weakness for books about gangs or the mafia, you might be aware that there will be many different names in a book like this. First of all, in the beginning, it was a little hard to keep track of who was who and what connection they had to the gang or Brandy Duvall. However, when you get further into the book, the names will become more common to you, and the confusion will disappear.

 

The writing of No Angels: The Short Life and Brutal Death of Brandaline Rose Duvall

When I look at the book  No Angels, it´s an easy read; the word flooding is nice and easy, and the entire book is easily understandable no matter how long you have been reading books on real criminal cases. Due to the book’s graphic nature, the book probably won´t be for everyone.

Pictures

Like many of you and I, true-crime aficionados/fans, want to know if a book contains images. In No Angels:  The Short Life and Brutal Death of Brandaline Rose Duvall, the author, Steve Jackson, provides us with photographs that give us the readers the feeling of looking into the crime ourselves. Even though the book is told graphically, the images are normal pictures of Brandy Duvall, etc., there are no horrific pictures in the book; everything is kept sober and with respect for Brandy.

 

Warning

I don’t use to write warnings when I do my reviews; however, I know some new people in the real crime book community might find it very hard reading a graphic book. Therefore please be warned No Angels: The Short Life and Brutal Death of Brandaline Rose Duvall are vivid in graphic details. The book is the most graphic book I have ever read. Hence this book might not be for you if you are faint at heart. Therefore please be aware of what you let yourself into if you decide to read this book.

1 thought on “The short life of Brandy DuVall”

  1. Many people have never heard of the brandy duvall case.Why? Because she was white and her killers were non-white.The media controllers have long had a nefarious racial agenda for America.Part of this agenda is creating a false picture of the source and nature of interracial crime in order to incite non-white violence(which is why brandy herself was attacked and killed)and to morally disarm whites by making them feel guilty about “racism”.Had brandy been non-white,we would’ve heard about her murder endlessly.But since her case didn’t fit the false anti-white narrative,it was buried.The same media deception continues today,which is why whites are more concerned with “justice” for non-whites than their own people.This is what the media does so well.It presents a false view of the world and everything that happens in it and people respond to this false view just as they are calculated to do.
