Publisher's Summary

What emerges are shattering portraits of the killers, the victims, and the community that suffered one of the greatest - and most socially and historically important - shooting tragedies of the 20th century.

Ten years in the works, Columbine is a masterpiece of reportage, from the acclaimed journalist who followed the massacre from day one and reconstructed the psychological journey of two teenage boys who became killers.

What the Critics Say

"Dave Cullen is the Dante of this high school hell. I came away from it thinking of Jack Nicholson hollering 'You want the truth? You can't handle the truth!' Read this quietly powerful account of Columbine and find out if you can." (Ron Rosenbaum, author of Explaining Hitler)

    "riveting"

    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.

    Story
    "Narration Does a Disservice"

    The actual content of this book was well-researched and well-presented from a writing standpoint (a little redundant in parts, but still an informative read). My main issue was with the narration. I would have preferred it to be a little more subdued and not so "In a World..." kind of movie trailer voice overfish.

    "Painful to read"
    Would you try another book from Dave Cullen and/or Don Leslie?

    This is a carefully researched story but the main characters are so narcissistic and out of touch with reality that it was difficult stay with the book.

    "Don't waste your time or money."

    What could have been a great book falls very flat. The author seems to take delight in the deaths of Dylan and Eric. The job of a reporter is to remain objective. What may have made this horrible is the voice of Don Leslie. He has ruined a few audio books for me. I know he is beloved by the audio book community but he voice lends wells to 1930's detective radio hour or perhaps a spooky movie, not one of the worst tragedies in the past twenty years. Not even worth a full star rating.

    "Should have listened to the audio sample."

    I can scarce imagine how or why anyone would listen to this authors narrative for fourteen hours. I myself couldn't listen more than ten minutes.
    This author/narrator draws such loud breath/gasps after every few words that it was to me the equivalent of nails to a chalkboard.
    Maybe a good book but doubt I'll purchase it to read after wasting money on this audio.
    This author should have left the narrating to a narrator or quit smoking.
