Thanks for the note Dave. I finished Columbine in August and gave it five stars. Here is my review:
At first I wasnt sure if I wanted to read this book, thinking that I had seen it all on tv and what else would I learn. I found out that what I thought happened was a lot of media hype. The background information on the shooters, their families and the victims was interesting and I was glad to find out what happened to a lot of the victims 10 years later. The amount of research that went into this book was amazing.
Hello, Dave. You are listed as a member most like me due to Light in August. Typically, I am not a big Faulkner fan, though I like this one so far. I also see that you have Water-Method man by Irving (Owen Meany my favorite) and Portney's Complaint by Roth (love Indignation best, and like several others). Anyway, have a great day.
