This book was fantastic. I thought I knew the general gist of what happened at Columbine but it turns out I really didn't.

There's a lot of research packed into this book and I think it might be the closest a lot of people will get to knowing the truth behind what happened and why it happened. It was also really interesting to learn more about how the investigation was conducted, how the media impacted on that and also just how the survivors, their families and the families of those who died tried to pick up the pieces in the aftermath of the shooting.

The writing is also really good. There's an awful lot of information but it never seems dry or out of context to the narrative within the book. If you are interested in knowing more about Columbine or want a bit more of an in depth look at how the truth has emerged over the ten years following the massacre then I'd highly recommend this book.
