In Cold Blood

Last week, I finished reading the book In Cold Blood by Truman Capote. In Cold Blood is a factual story about two men whom have just gotten out of prison. These two men turn into cold blooded killers. Meeting at the bus station in Kansas, they hit a house with a completely innocent family. Capote describes in detail about the murders, the trial, and the prosecution. The twist and turns in the novel lead you on the men's adventures. We follow them to Mexico, to the cheap motel, through their childhood, and eventually their time in jail. This novel will leave you anxious, and hungry for more. I recommend everyone read this book. However, don't get too attached to the characters. In the end, they face the cold hard truth. They were killers and had to face the harsh reality of what they had done.
