Edmond Gagnon‘s review

 
Read from February 15 to 25, 2014


A true story that is very well written. It might be disturbing to some readers, being quite graphic.
Knowing the ending may have been a spoiler for me and I had a really hard time staying focused when the author went into excruciating detail about way too many non-issues.
I think Capote’s style was in tune with the times. Like movies, and television these days, stories and plots have gotten more complicated and are told more directly.
In Cold Blood is a good read for true crime buffs. Robert Blake stars in the movie of the same name. I thought it was slow too, but enjoyed watching how the police built a case against the killers.
