From my collection.
I enjoyed this true crime book, but the style was just a little off-putting. I like a narrative style better than this collection of quotes.
I finished the book feeling somewhat sorry for Tony Baekeland. He was born into a seriously stange family and most likely had some serious mental disease as well. His drug problem didn't help. Of course, on top of all that his mother did everything she could to mess him up. What a creep! It's hard to believe he was ever released, though, after murdering his mother and his obviously messed up mental state. I agree with another poster in that I wonder where all those people were who fought so hard for his release. They seemed to have dropped out of his life after getting him back out into the unsuspecting streets. It was really wrong of them to put the burden on his poor grandma!
