The Manson Women and Me: Monster, Morality and Murder.
by Nikki Meredith
2019
Citadel Press
3.0/ 5.0

In 1996, journalist and social worker, Nikki Meredith began writing letters to Leslie Van Houten and Patricia Krenwinkel in prison. It took time to build trust. For over 20 years she continued to communicate with them, eventually meeting them in person and talking to them. She asked about Mansons reprogramming methods and its psychological influence on them. Leslie was more open and seems to have changed who she is and how she lives and has attempted to atone for her deeds.Patricia still believes her actions were justified, and there was nothing to attone.

Meredith ties the Manson womens crimes into her own life story of growing up Jewish, facing anti- semitism and shares the story of her brother, imprisoned from a robbery he committed as a youth.

This good, interesting, but a bit long. A good psychological study of the psychology of mind control and being evil. ( )

The Manson Women and Me: Monsters, Morality, and Murder by Nikki Meredith

Nikki Meredith, a journalist and Author of this book visits Leslie Van Houten and Patricia Krenwinkle in prison over the course of 20 years. They are two of the women involved in the infamous Charles Manson murders.Her hopes are to learn what would make two (seemingly) normal girls commit such heinous crimes.

The story moves at a fast pace. It is not only an insight on the two women but a brief history of The Authors upbringing (family life) as well. With informative information, including photos, I was engrossed from the beginning. I highly recommend The Manson Women and Me: Monsters, Morality, and Murder to those who love crime/drama. ( )

I read a few reviews of this book before reading it so I knew it focused quite a bit on the author's past, her feeling on numerous issues rather than focusing just on Leslie and Pat, 2 of the women who were in the Charles Manson cult. .Both were involved in the Tate/LaBianca murders. Ms. Meredith has been in contact with both women for over 20 years. She tries to understand how two nice girls from 'normal' families can become murderers and had no remorse for years. I enjoyed this book even though the questions remain unanswered. ( )
