In Cold Blood, Truman Capote.

Rating: 4/5 stars.

This is not your typical crime book. It will rip your soul out and leave you with a bitter taste in your mouth.

Capote manages to cover everything with details(too many details in some parts), he just doesn’t tell the crime story quick…he lets you have some time to evolve feelings and get into it…and that’s exactly what happened to me: I felt empathy towards Perry. And that’s something I didn’t really want because I knew he’s gonna get what he deserves. He is the one that stands out because of his unusual behavior, accepting the responsibility of murdering all the 4 members of the Clutter family…or his apologize before he was hanged…and all his explanations actually kinda makes you feel like he deserves to be free.Their gain after the murders? 40 dollars and a death penalty.

The thing that shocked me was finding out at the end that this has been a real story, not a fictive one…left me in some kind of a shock…so I searched some pictures of the Clutter family (thanks crimearchives.net). I decided on uploading only the picture of the family and the murderers. If you’re interested into seeing the crime scene and other evidences I’ll leave the link under the pictures.
