by Truman Capote
5th book finished (and just in time!) for the R.I.P. Autumn Challenge
My Rating: 3.5/5
There has been a lot of talk about this book and the author since the film, Capote, came out; I'm glad I finally got around to reading it. It was a compelling read and Capote did a wonderful job describing the killers, taking us into their thoughts, and making them human. Perhaps I'm too desensitised by crime shows on TV, or violence in the news, because I didn't have a particularly strong emotional reaction to the story, but it was interesting to read, on several levels. Groundbreaking at the time it was written, it's definitely worth the read. Now I'm looking forward to seeing the film.
