Right at the top- very satisfying and provided a lot of details about a case that really gripped the country and especially Southern California. This was a paradigm shifting case. The almost laissez faire attitude of the LAPD is pretty staggering given the horrific nature of the crimes and the fact that the perpetrators weren't done.
The Onion Field and In Cold Blood come to mind although those crimes were unfortunately as exceptional as the Tate/La Bianca killings. After 36 years wearing a badge, it still amazes me how marginal people can cause such tragedy. It may explain why the Kennedy assassination is still surreal.
Good steady narration.
Vincent Bugliosi did an exceptional job with the case and this book should be required reading or listening to every prosecutor and cop starting his or her career.
Very true to the Doyle form. What you'd expect from Sherlock later in life.
Sherlock doesn't keep me on the edge of my seat...But the cases are also summed up logically and well.
Jenny is superb...I will be watching for more of her work.
At the feet of a master.
You don't listen to something like this for "enjoyment"
His performance was fine
This is an opinion piece that is well reasoned by King. That I don't agree is beside the point. I have waited for 35 years for something as shocking as Newtown to cause us to react by abridging the rights of the law abiding. I would have thought that Columbine would have done it- or Virginia Tech- or myriad others. Apparently it took the deaths of little kids. I suspect that a number of less high volume weapons would cause about the same damage. Will this have any effect? It will not and at least King is intellectually honest enough to admit that.
Just prepare for the infringement of something else that the elites in Washington don't approve of. The left thinks of this as a moral question. So it goes.
Churchill seems to be candid and honest about his war years.
Churchill's discussion about the aftermath of the abandoning of France. This was not a decision taken lightly. It's easy to see that these events bothered Churchill even years after the war....perhaps more than at the time. This was not the punchline to a joke and we can only be thankful that our country is across the Atlantic Ocean. We waited until the last moment before helping and of course Pearl Harbor before engaging the enemy.
Listening to Rodska seems to be listening to Churchill. The same voice.
There is a lot of activity in this book. I will certainly re-listen to it perhaps a number of times
I will be buying all of the volumns in this history.
Yes--- This is a detailed, well researched book that puts the conspiracy industry where it belongs. Folks like Oliver Stone have allowed their fears and suspicions to take charge of their judgement and ethics.
Helter Skelter. Because of the author, the style and level of detail are the same. It recalls the bad old days of the sixties. This is the single most significant event of that decade and perhaps the century. America was one country before this day and another the next. This is an important work.
It's not a scene, but the behavior of Mrs. Kennedy showed us what a class lady she was. She was one of a kind and far more admirable than her husband or any one else for that matter.
Lee Harvey Oswald was a creep but did not fall far from the tree. His mother was what you'd expect this little psycho to come from. If there is a message for us to take from this episode, it's that any worthless **** can have a profound effect. Lee Harvey Oswald was certainly worthless and got "lucky".
