How do you reconcile the son you love unconditionally has ended the lives of so many other beloved sons?

Perhaps the only thing more idiosyncratic than the crimes Jeffrey Dahmer committed is this curious analysis by his father, which is more autobiography than criminology or portraiture. His father sees many similarities between himself and his son: both are emotionally distant, fear abandonment, like to control people and feel inadequate. I don't believe that how Jeff turned out was solely because of her mental illnesses and the medication she took while pregnant with him.Publishers Weekly reviewed that A Father's Story is "a book for criminologists, psychiatrists and the ghoulish. However, I'm not interested in hearing the man's self-justification on why he would not have known about Jeffrey and that it couldn't possibly be him who's the problem.

Dahmer questions where he might have gone wrong as a father and speculates over what instances may have sparked Jeffrey's violent tendencies. Many books have been written about this serial killer but only his father can give an internal insight on the killer before he became infamous. His writing isn’t captivating, it is sentimental and emotionless at the same time, often forgivably hokey, but I couldn’t put it down. If readers are expecting sensational revelations from this earnest memoir by the father of mass-murderer Jeffrey Dahmer, they will be disappointed.Jeff has always has a uncomfortable hold over me, I am fascinated by the human psyche and just how far the rabbit hole goes. Hoever, Dahmer should be commended for avoiding sensationalism and trying to capitalize off his son's crimes. A Father's Story cannot claim to have discovered the ultimate solution to the enigma of either the criminal or his deeds.
