I Love to read and I am all over the place. From Fantasy to Non Fiction to True Crime. Sadly even some Romance novels which I never thought I would read but they turned out to be not bad some even good as long as they had some fantasy in them
No.I think it was well done considering the amount of information to explain
Yes. If another True Crime book I think it would open up many things about the media and the DA would leave out only showing there side. Instead all all sides like this book
No this was trenhe first.
Not a clue
I enjoyed this book from the point of being a parent during the time this happened with children in school and all the media scared me cause it seemed with these killers having a website and many people following it. I feared for my own children almost pulled them out of school and home-schooled them. This book showed many things I never knew and was well done by Mr. Leslie.
It is very difficult to imagine that 2 kids from a nice neighborhood and a good school could get so messed up, and forever change the lives of so many innocent people. Love your kids!
I've read a lot of good audiobooks. This ranks with among the better ones.
I like non fiction, events driven books. Looking for the details in what happened. That said, I think it's comparable to books like Blackhawk Down or Game Change.
You'll have to have a tough stomach to finish this. I was unable to finish the tape. It was too gruesome, too true, and too heartbreaking for me to go on.
It was almost too long, for the simple fact that one heart can only bear so much hurt in a period of time. I had nightmares, day mares, and sometimes I wanted to pause and cry. Sometimes I stopped the tape because I wouldn't be able to eat my dinner.
Beware. It's good to know. I'm glad I read it, but it was very hard to handle.
Audiobooks allow book nerds like me to venture out in public and keep "reading."
Not terribly entertaining...but educational. If you're wanting to be swept away and escape..avoid this book. If you enjoy peeking behind the curtain to see the actual lives of mass murderers, and if there was a telling psychopathology or ANYTHING to use as a warning...then this is your book. I have a BA and MA in psychology so i found this educational and engaging...but it wasn't fun.
The author makes the case that what you know about Columbine is probably wrong. I found his arguments persuasive. The extent of the cover-up by Jefferson County officials was new information to me. The author also delivers on the promise to provide insight into the motivations of the killers. The book is difficult to put down. I suggest not reading it at night as it will very likely disturb your sleep. I did find that the narrative went a bit off-track during the long discussion of psychopathy, but it manages to find the way back.
All I need to say is buy this book if you have come this far. I was at the edge of my ears the whole time. I just went through a few month period where I was considering getting rid of my audible scrip because of bordom and wow did this bring me back. Very well written and researched book. I dont give 5 stars often.

I enjoyed the story (and the narrator did a great job) but as the book went on the profanity (mostly quoting from the killers' own journals) began to get tiresome.
I did learn a lot from the book (details I new little about or knew nothing of). The story jumps around a lot, which was a little distracting, but it was still well done.
Riveting account. I only rated it down because the reader did a little too much tone inflection/emphasis, and since there is some offensive language, the inflection made it all the more offensive.
