This really gets into the minds of the criminals more than I thought it would. Very awesome read.

Not great but not horrible.
Hard to get past the first 2 parts. Yet, parts 3 and 4 are amazing works and keep you reading. A very good true crime read.
My grandmother grew up and went to school with this family.
By Lauren McKennzie
It's interesting to hear her talk about them as her friends and then read an outsiders views on the tragedy. Grandma tells me about them as she knew them and this gives me another view of how someone who didn't know them sees it. Great book.
A very good read. It has two typos, that the publisher has refused to fix as of this moment.
Awesome read in true Capote prose. I can't understand the criticisms about the wordiness. It's how Capote writes & necessary to portray the story with detail & sensitivity to the content. I couldn't put it down. A definite must read!
