Beautifully written. A superb insight.
The depravity of human behavior lies just below the surface of social interaction.
Great story telling and great story in general
He reads to slow and the book is boring . I would not recommend this book to anyone
I continue to be amazed just how many times my mind drifts back to elements of this book, even though it's been about three months since I finished it. It's disturbing yet mesmerizing all the same. A true classic.
Great book. All you expect and a little more. I was surprised by the exquisite writing style and descriptive qualities. Capote paints a picture so well. You know this town, you know this family, and you know these villains. This book lets go of you slowly and lingers.
Excellent story captivating , kept me intrigued from the first words read . Really enjoyed the narrator's tone
Loved Truman Capote's writing style and language. I decided it was time to "read" this book after watching "Capote". I avoided it in the past, fearing it was too gruesome and awful. I think the writing was exceptional.
There is a reason this book remains captivating 50 years later. In an age where we are desensitized to violence, this book managed to rattle me and seep into my dreams. Capote's lyrical descriptions and the way he weaves the stories of the family, the convicts, and the law is intoxicating. A must read!
