I have read it. I had to read this book for school, but never started it really, due to too little time. Now I did read it. I thought the first chapter was a little difficult, just to get in the language and it was a long way to the actual events. But after that I became quite engrossed in it. I was used to the language and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Good to read. I think it is very well-written.

Journal Entry 7 by Tienie from Oudkarspel, Noord-Holland Netherlands on Friday, April 16, 2010
The mailman brought the book yesterday to my house.

(26 mai 2010) I finished the book. I really had to get used to the way of writing and the English used. But when I got used to it, I found the book was easy to read. I didn't really liked the story but I wanted to know how the book finished anyway. What amased me by the story was that the guys who commited the murder where so average. They could be have been the boys you meet in the supermarket. Really frightening.

I've heard about this book and always wanted to read it :-)

Journal Entry 12 by antonettes at Arnhem, Gelderland Netherlands on Tuesday, January 25, 2011
I finally got around to reading this book. It took me about two weeks to finish (which is quite long for me) because of the long sentences and sometimes complicated words. But I thought the story was really good and very well written. It will travel back to Dutch-book soon!

Journal Entry 13 by wingdutch-bookwing at Weesp, Noord-Holland Netherlands on Thursday, February 10, 2011
Book is back home.

Journal Entry 14 by wingdutch-bookwing at Weesp, Noord-Holland Netherlands on Tuesday, March 01, 2011
This book will be used as my favourite for the favourites roundabout organised by marsala.

Why I chose this book:

The first time I read this book, my journal entry wasn't very enthusiastic, but I liked it already. It turned out that I had to digest this story some more, because now I know: This is my all-time favourite.
I think it is great, just because crime and how and why those things happen are a big interest of me. I'd like to make a living out of it (studying crime, that is.) The book in itself is very well written, rich in words and this topic is looked at from every angle. Nothing is hidden. It quite engrosses you. It's just a great book!

Journal Entry 16 by wingBoekentrolwing at Leeuwarden, Fryslân (Friesland) Netherlands on Friday, March 04, 2011
This book arrived safely yesterday. Thanks, dutch-book, for jumping into the favourites roundabout! Since I've been waiting for the first book in the ring quite some time now, I'll start right away.
Sorry for journalling it a day late,but I was buried in "Sarah's Key" and did not go online at all....

It has been on my wish-list / to-read list quite some time (Dutch version), so I'm quite pleased that I'll get to read it finally, be it in English.

Journal Entry 17 by wingBoekentrolwing at Leeuwarden, Fryslân (Friesland) Netherlands on Thursday, March 10, 2011
I once read this book in the Dutch version and was very surprised to find it in my mailbox. It is the favorite book of dutch-book, that arrived here as one of the books of the favourite books roundabout.

It was on my to re-read list, but I can cross it off now.
I also liked this book while reading it for the second time. As a matter of fact it made even a bigger impression.
The combination of telling the horrible story of a brutal murder in quite a dry and distant way and on the other hand letting the outrage of such an act shine through made it a very interesting read.

I liked the way that many points of view were told, that all characters got a chance to say what they had to say, even if only in a letter.

It is not really a whodunnit,but more the description of the hunt, the attempt to get away, the consequenses on many of the people who lived in that small town.

If you like such type of novel, more the psychological side of a murder and its aftermath this is a book I recommend.

Journal Entry 19 by LiniP at Schwäbisch Hall, Baden-Württemberg Germany on Monday, March 14, 2011
The book has arrived safely. Thanks for sending. I am not sure whether I have already read this book. If I have it must have been some time ago and therefore I will definitely (re-)read the book. I will read it after finishing two ring books and send it on to Philosoraptor once he has forwarded the last two books I sent him. I will also read this book as part of the German 1.000-books challenge.

Journal Entry 20 by LiniP at Schwäbisch Hall, Baden-Württemberg Germany on Thursday, March 24, 2011
I truly enjoyed reading the book and no, I had not read it. The way, the characters were portrayed was exceptional. At the end, I thought, that the different characters on death row did not necessarily have to be introduced. Being a lawyer myself, it was also interesting to see the legal procedures which are normally not mentioned in a true crime story. Thanks for sharing this book, dutch-book. I will send it on once the next person the round-about has finished reading the other books.

my turn, thank you

Journal Entry 23 by karen07814 at Colchester, Essex United Kingdom on Wednesday, April 13, 2011
I can see why this one has become a classic. It tells the story of a murder in Kansas by 2? people and describes their lives before and after. Avoiding sensationalism it tells almost a clearer story for that reason.
It's hard to comprehend people with an absence of feeling when they commit crime, particularly when one of them is trying to commit the crime "nicely".
well worth reading and thank yo for sharing.

Journal Entry 24 by marsala at Chiswick, Greater London United Kingdom on Friday, April 15, 2011
Ooh, another book of the favourites roundabout arriving in about a weeks time. I have 3 of them here now, so it might take a while before this one gets to travel again.

I'm looking forward to reading it!

I've finishd reading it and I must say I really enjoyed it. I'm not a big crime novel fan. Not that I dislike them, but I just don't pick them up that much. So I was glad that this wasn't a regular crime novel, not just a whodunnit. I liked that it told the story from different perspectives and even though nothing surprising really happens in the book it is still an engaging read.

Arrived a few minutes ago along with a bookring book. Looks interesting! Will read as soon as I can.

Journal Entry 27 by rem_BGQ-488500 at Birchington, Kent United Kingdom on Saturday, August 27, 2011
Oops! I was just about to make release notes and discovered I'd finished this (well over a week ago) but somehow forgot to journal. Sometimes I scare myself...

Anyway. This was read on-and-off, but not because I wasn't getting on with it. It's quite a heavy book subject-matter wise, so I read two or three chapter chunks at a time to give my brain time to absorb the writing (which is very detailed, by the way). I can see why this book was labeled 'controvercial', as Capote really does paint the two murderers in a very human light. I can't say I 'enjoyed' it as such, but I'm glad I read it.

It's a book I would have read eventually anyway because it's on the 1001 list, but reading it as part of the favourites roundabout is more fun ;)
Thank you dutch-book for sharing!

Journal Entry 33 by wingearthcaroleannewing at Falkirk, Scotland United Kingdom on Thursday, October 13, 2011
Like Tienie I didn't really liked the story but I wanted to know how the book finished anyway. I did think the characters were well described though and could easily picture them all. However nearer the end I felt it became a bit more like non-fiction when all the men on death row were described along with their crimes.
