Well written and easy to follow and understand. However, I do recommend obtaining the physical copy to help with names and places (which can only be expected with nonfiction). Other than that, I was very satisfied with the way Bugliosi and Gentry told the horrific story of the Manson Family.
I'd listen to Scott Brick narrate a traffic jam. He is one of my all time favorite narrators. Helter Skelter is a fascinating and terrifying story. Very well written, not too dense. Excellent audiobook.
I think the author is an excellent writer and does a great job explaining what can be dry at times Cortland information in a way that is enjoyable to read. Obviously the story told itself however he adds so much to it in the way that he passes on information and the level of detail.
Give this a shot it you enjoy history, crime, etc
This is one of my favorite books and I have read and re-read it multiple times. I am a voracious and precocious reader but due to my stroke am unable to read. Thank God for Audible!!!
Scott Brick was the perfect reader for this crime epic. I've forgotten how truly evil he was and the slavish devotion of his followers defied logic
Say something about yourself!
Though it is an interesting true story, the information presented in this book was so boring. It sounded like the narrator just read off of the police reports.
Incredibly dry, boring presentation of the book.
The trial of Manson and his followers took 7 months. Bugloss takes you down the crazy, dark passages of that twisted trial, and spares the most tedious details. Despite that, there were parts that felt like a slog.
One of the best audiobooks I've listened to. It almost is unbelievable and quite unsettling to conceive that this is very much a true story. It has compelled me to do further research on the individuals who comprised the Manson Family to try to get a grasp on how they were so influenced by Manson. It is truly good that so many of them eventually became Christians and have dedicated their lives to helping others and serving the true Jesus, the son of God.
The parts about the trial can be kind of hard to follow at times, but for about 95% of the book, excellent storytelling. I never realized how twisted and weird all of the surrounding facts were for Manson and his "family". But now I am all too aware.
