Share with others any comments you may have about the book edition you are reading. This topic was created to help clearing any doubts on differences that the book may have from one publishing house to another.

This topic may be used to share information regarding where to get the book, as well. Do not share illegal files. Let’s be considerate with the authors. I don't think In Cold Blood is already on Public Domain, but someone correct me if I am wrong...

Let me ask you one thing: is everyone reading In Cold Blood in English?

I am curious because the first time I read it, I did in Portuguese, and surprisingly enough, I felt the translation seemed more fluid than the original.

I know the dilemma original x translation is old news, but usually we rant on how the second changed the first. In this case in particular, I congratulate the translator!

I haven't opened it yet, but I'll read it in English. Some translators are extremely good :-)

Kathi Yes, I'm reading it in English. Unfortunately, for the most part I am monolingual. I'd be very curious to read a translation to see how it handles the descriptions of a very American place and time.

I don't know why, but I feel that the descriptions in Portuguese are less tiresome... Where are the other Portuguese speakers? hehehehe
