True Crime? What does it really mean?

Part 1 In Cold Blood

This book is an interesting book don’t get me wrong but it is a really hard book to get into. I find the different use of perspectives a nice way to change up the style of writing but I think there is way to much narration and detail. I get why the detail is needed in the beginning but even on page 100 there is still a lot of detail and it is hard to keep engaged in the story. I felt really bad when the little girl was the one who found Nancy dead. That was a really horrible thing to have to read and the way they described how they found the bodies was rather disturbing.

I did find one quote that I really liked just because it made no sense but it sounds like it should. “If one bird carried every grain of sand, grain by grain, across the ocean, by the time he got them all on the other side, that would only be the beginning of eternity” (69).

But I did like the perspective of Perry and Dick because you can tell by the way they talk to each other and the way they act that there is some kind of history and it is an interesting thing to try and figure out before you are told.
