Norman (normanince) | 48 comments I doubt anyone really 'enjoys' reading this book. But it is very well written, and the descriptiveness is the whole point. Capote tried to re-create a horrible event long before docudramas came into vogue.

Chrystal714 | 47 comments I trudged through this book as well. I just couldn't seem to get into it. I think I like watching true crime docudrama's more then reading them.

Kristin Funny, because I read this book for a book group and was dreading it, groaned when it was chosen, but I liked it. Alot. I thought his method of piecing together the hours leading up the deaths was ingenious and it read like fiction. Breakfast at Tiffany's, on the other hand, is a classic I just don't get. Holly is one of the most annoying protagonists I have EVER encountered!

Skylar Burris (skylarburris) | 32 comments Funny, because I FLEW through this book very quickly, at a time when I had been able to read books easily for a long time (becuase academia had killed my joy). It's a five-star book in my estimation.
