In Cold Blood

Frankly, I don’t know why I picked up this Truman Capote classic, since I generally dislike true crime stuff. I needed something to listen to in the car, though, and, after all, this is a classic. As it turns out, this one really hooked me. It’s a very sensitive and humanizing tale, considering it’s about an absolutely horrific murder that shattered a small Kansas town. Capote did a great job of picking out the minute details that make even the killers seem remarkably sympathetic. Actor Scott Brick helped things along with an admirable job of the reading.
