    1. A shocking, dark true story of a man who has turned death into a living, The Ice Man is undoubtedly disturbing but a very memorable crime book.

    2. This is probably the worst written book I ve ever had the misfortune of reading To start with there are only perhaps 50 pages of actual content in the book, rephrased so many times, over and over and over for 400 pages that at some point you ll start to wish a real hitman would show up and put you out of your misery Which brings us to whether any of this is true, and if so how much There does not appear to have been any research done by the author He repeats the words of a criminal who IMO has g [...]

    3. If you re into Mafia stories or just true crime stories in general then this is definetly a book you should check out This book tells the story of Richard Kuklinksi who was perhaps one of the most disturbed individuals who ever lived This man started out as a serial killer but then he crossed paths with guys who were in the Mafia Since he had previously been killing just for his own personal enjoyment, the Mafia guys started offering him contracts to kill and he began to make his living from kil [...]

    4. This book was poorly written However, I couldn t put it down The man it is written about is incredibly interesting This makes for good light reading I just wish the author would have taken the time to read the crap he was scratching down on the pages It was irritating to read the same thing over and over again I don t know if he ever read it after he finished typing it He likes to tell you the same thing five or six times over throughout the book I almost thought a couple of times that I had los [...]

    5. I got chills, they re multiplying.Nope, nothing to do with Danny Zuko but Richard Kuklinski aka The Iceman greased a hell of a lot of people, and this is a riveting, chilling account of his life and crimes.Having had a truly horrific childhood that did away with whatever humanity he had to start with, Richard was already a killer by the age of 13 Discovering a fearsome talent for murder he was already killing for sport by the time he was tapped to carry out contracts for various Mob families, an [...]

    6. I could not get enough of this sick character Great story as disturbing as it is to think it all really happened, and he lived just a few towns away Most serial killers get sensationalized after they re caught Richard needs no building up, he was pure evil from the start A must read.

    7. My experience reading this book was the same as my experience reading A Million Little Pieces amazement at first, turning slowly to mild disbelief, then later outrage at having had my time wasted There s no way that half of what s in this book is true, and I m not the only one to think this see extensive debunking references in negative reviews on .No doubt Kulkinski was a bad dude, but he s also a bad liar I m not sure what part of this story pushed me into total disbelief, but perhaps it was s [...]

    8. 3.5 5 stars An entertaining, decent true crime book Definitely interesting and worth a read for anyone who has a morbid curiosity for serial killers and suchlike.After reading this book, I went straight on youtube to find the HBO documentaries which were mentioned and found myself irritated at some of the glaring contradictions in the book it was written that he committed his first murder at the age of 13 with a piece of wood, in the documentary it was 18 in a bar with a pool cue for one I mean, [...]

    9. Carlo The Night Stalker has written another captivating true crime book This one tells the spine chilling story of Richard Kuklinski, a.k.a the Ice Man because he liked to freeze his victims to throw off forensic investigators Born into an abusive family, Kuklinski claimed to have killed for the first time at age 14 After a run in with the Gambino family, he became a hit man for the mob, managing to live the double life of a professional assassin and devoted family man The author spent over 200 [...]

    10. Ever since I saw the HBO documentary on Richard Kluklinski I wanted to read the book With plans to attend Clinical PhD programs in psychology naturally I was drawn to find out what could make such a monster like Richard tick I read this book years later almost forgetting what was mentioned in the aforementioned documentary Because of this I was unable to realize the inaccuracies of information that was being told in the book Don t get me wrong, the book is extremely entertaining and offers good [...]

    11. The material of this book kept me reading as I was fascinated with the evil of Richard Kuklinski, though the writing nearly turned me away on many occasions If everything written is true, which a lot of it didn t seem up to snuff it is a riveting story of one of the scariest men in history But the book is twice as long as it needs to be because the author rehashes the same material over and over By half way through, I had read that Richard was the nicest guy in the world and also the meanest and [...]

    12. The Ice Man Confessions of a Mafia Contract Killer by Philip CarloThis was a highly disturbing glimpse into the double life Richard Kuklinski lead He was a serial killer who died of natural causes in prison in March, 2006 He claims to have killed over 100 people He used to freeze his victims to confuse the authorities when the actual time of death took place That was his strategy that he used for many years to keep from getting the murders traced back to him Philip Carlo interviewed Kuklinski af [...]

    13. Prob the scariest book I ve ever read I have to close all my blinds at night now and almost had to put it down a few times because of all the gruesome accounts of the murders I still cant believe this book is based on fact and not fiction, its so disturbing Not for the faint of heart but a fascinating account of a psychopath who was victim to an awful violent childhood, i couldnt help but feel bad for this man If you re into murder mysteries crime novels this is definitely not one to miss

    14. This is a great book equal parts fascinating, and horrifying It tells the story of Richard Kuklinski, the most prolific Mafia hit man of all time But Kuklinski didn t confine his murders and mayhem to his mob work he was a very busy serial killer in his own right No one knows for sure how many people Kuklinski killed but the total could be well over 200 He would kill anyone, anytime, anywhere, for any reason He was one of the most cunning and dangerous people that ever walked the earth.And, at t [...]

    15. This book is a bunch of BS written by a guy who did no fact finding It is about a guy who wanted to seem bigger than he really was He was a porn dealer, ran a small time home invasion crew and killed some associates Most of the book is lies told by one man with a creative imagination I read the book before seeing any of the HBO specials The entire time, I was thinking There is no freaking way After reading the book I listened to the actual interviews It seems like he was baited in to giving a be [...]

    16. Great book about one of the most notoriously unknown killers of all time Richard Kuklinski was a very interesting man to say the least, his family life, his secret life of murder and his long list of petty crimes and schemes He had been in staying in a locality for his life and no one ever got a clue about his double life including his wife When you finish The Ice Man , you ll feel as if you know the guy The book starts off talking about Richard s horrible childhood and how when he committed his [...]

    17. It s hard to give this book an accurate rating While the story and the man it is based upon are highly engrossing the writing itself is lackluster As many others before me have stated the book is riddled with repetition and a real lack of flare The reader is presented with several stories multiple times in close proximity to one another in this book As far as the story is concerned Richard Kuklinski is the rarest example of both ends of the spectrum that is human emotion In one stroke he is capa [...]

    18. I found this audiobook and was excited to start The very beginning I was very torn I knew how this man turned out but his childhood was full of terrible things I know not everyone who has a bad childhood grows to kill people but I think I wanted to see some good in this person, If only a lil bit It went from childhood to his marriage and he was a Dr Jekyll Mr Hyde kinda man one min he was a kind, caring husband, the next min at the drop of a hat he was a furious wife beater Not Kool He was a str [...]

    19. Another book club book A brutal story tracking the life of a serial killer mafia hitman I thought the story of his childhood provided a good foundation for his later behaviour A brutal, abusive father followed by harsh corporal punishment at a Catholic school at the hands of nuns and priests really set the tone.I think the story told by Richard Kuklinski to Philip Carlo tried in some ways tried to ameliorate his career choice I acknowledge he had a terrible childhood and early teenage life The s [...]

    20. Did you like the Hunger Games If you liked The Hunger Games but was hoping that the main character was a grown Polish American psychopath instead of a teenage angst ridden girl, then this just might be the book for you Yes, as in The Hunger Games, there is plenty of killing to go around, much, much, and in many creative and did I mention real ways But unlike TheRunning ManHunger Games, this book does not allow you to be sickened by the television audience and a voyeuristic world which would al [...]

    21. Richard is a normal everyday guy As a child, he was always made fun of, bullied, and was never truely loved As his life went on, he began to realize he can get his revenge on all the people that hurt him as a child He began to go crazy and became a very known mafia killer He was married and had kids of his own, but he killed all the boys Every man that ever hurt him or says anything rude, he would go after them and kill them He said himself in the book that he would never try to hurt any women o [...]

    22. not much here you can t get from the various HBO specials on Big Rich Kuklinski certainly killed a bunch of people and knew some made guys, and he certainly led a very compartmentalized life, but so did my father and nobody s writing books and articles about that asshole oh wait medium matter my father d or painstakingly recording his life stories, quite a lot of which are bullshit oh wait crazydademails.tumblr at any rate, this is a fun read about a bad man, but take it for what it is sloppy pu [...]

    23. This was one of the most interesting books I ve read in a long time I could not put it down.Carlo shows us the real Richard and then let s us choose how we see him.Richard had my sides, a wonderful work ethic, a torn family man with a hair trigger and I m sure Park Dietz gained much insight into human behavior from Richard.This is true life, this is how it done Carlo does not sugar coat any part of Richard.As I read the book I was able to see the same eyes without a soul that Carlo did Richard c [...]

    24. This book is about a guy named Richard Kuklinski who was a contract killer for the mafia When he was young other kids were always picking him on, his dad was an abusive alcoholic that beat his older brother to death, and gave Richard beating everyday One day he got sick of being bulled and started hitting his bully with a wooden stick but he beat him to death accidently When grew up he had a family but no education so all he could do were things like robbing trucks and killing for money.The main [...]
