Resenhas

O resultado de oito anos de estudo para tentar entender o que levou dois jovens de classe média a cometer o maior massacre já registrado em uma escola dos Estados Unidos. Recriando minuto a minuto do dia 20 de abril de 1999, o autor tenta montar o quebra cabeça para solucionar um crime motivado apenas pelo ódio.

I think I decided to read this book because it offered an answer as to why two teenage boys decided to attack their school with guns and bombs. I know it's really not good for me to get caught up in gruesome details (Jeff said I shouldn't read it), but the why weighed on my mind, even ten years after the event. So this book came out with its haunting cover and I read it and now I do feel like I understand better why they did it.

Am I happy I read it? Not really. But it was very gripping and thorough. It debunked a lot of myths about the Columbine massacre, and was easy to understand even though it jumped around in time a lot. I wouldn't recommend it unless you're sincerely interested in tragedy and/or being depressed.… (mais)

Great book. Sad but I am glad I read it. I think this is an important book. I really goes into what is and isn't true about one of the greatest American tragedies.

I didn't think i would be able to read it all the way trough without taking a break. This wasn't true. The author lays out the scope and sequence very well. I found myself compelled to keep reading.

I say this not having finished the book. It's a really well researched account, but I just couldn't keep reading about these sad, sad people. I want to finish it though, I do.
