So much information I never knew, or heard about. The killers stories and messages left behind in their journals sends a constant chill down my spine. I HIGHLY recommend this book to anybody who's interested in media sabotage, criminal justice, and/or psychotic behavior. The survivors of this story share powerful stories of rehabilitation and courage. Narrator does a fine job, as well. 5 stars.
Columbine is a true crime book that is in a category all to itself. Few true crime books bother to check in the victims but rather wallow in the blood details of the crimes and the criminals who commit them.
I've seen criticism of this book and all have been unfounded. Cullen clearly addresses everything surrounding the events of the Columbine high school massacre.
I can truly recommend this book to anyone interested in the events.
Don Leslie was a fantastic narrator. His warm voice helps reinforce the facts but also the cushion the details of a bleak unfortunate situation.
I have not read the print version.
The book is non-fiction so it's not character-based.
An American Tragedy
This book is genuinely disturbing, but essential reading in this day and age of mass shootings. Healthy people will likely never understand psychopathic minds, but hopefully insights from this book and others will help people to recognize traits and hopefully prevent tragedies like this in the future.

I have listened to this book more than once.I truly didn't understand what a true psychopath is.It amazing that such a sick young man could find a follower.Well researched and narrated expertly.
I'm reviewing this book years after my reading of it. My primary takeaway from the book was the complete lack of accountability within our government / law enforcement organizations. The fact that a 15-year-old's body lay on the sidewalk for nearly 24 hours after the crime is just unbelievable. It's a harrowing tale and provides extreme detail on everyone involved.
Beautifully written account of every part of the story of the Columbine massacre and all of the facts and myths surrounding it. There couldn't have been a better voice actor for the role, either.
The story itself is hard to swallow. This book is not intended for the faint of heart. There were many points in this book when I was brought to tears.
This is an incredibly powerful story that should never be taken lightly.
