The shooting at Columbine was horrifying. This book goes way beyone everything I ever heard on the subject and actually discounts much of what I had. We all heard how the pair of shooters were outcasts, Goths, bullied etc.. Yet none fo that was true. They were much worse. They were psycopaths who just enjoyed the killings. AND it could have been much worse. If the large bombs had exploded, it is hard to imagine.

And yet though the information was there, the media didnt really correct the errors.
Columbine was one of the best audio books that I've listened to. The telling of this horrific event was excellent. The author managed to take us front and center. Honestly, I felt like I was right there. I felt the fear just like these kids did. Many times i found myself holding my breath or clenching my fists. I could almost hear the sirens and the footsteps of the killers. Columbine should be a must read/listen for everyone. These kinds of tragedies need to be prevented in the future.
Interesting information and well put together, but I can't say I actually enjoyed reading this book. Maybe I thought it would be more revealing?
