Đối với một cuốn tiểu thuyết tuổi teen, nó là một cuốn sách dễ đọc. Đủ thú vị để tôi đọc phần tiếp theo "Linger"
When I first read "In Cold Blood," I lacked the perspective to understand how revolutionary a book it was. The story is well-known: a couple paroled Kansas State Pen alumni robbed and killed a prosperous Kansas farmer and his family. The narrative follows the victims' friends and family, the investigators chasing leads, and the two criminals themselves. The writing is beautiful and richly descriptive, and the storytelling generally very taut. (In places, Capote is a little bit heavy with quotes from letters and reports) Since I first read "In Cold Blood," I've also seen the excellent film version (Robert Blake as a killer? Who'da thunk it?), and the haunting "Capote." In the latter, we see much of "In Cold Blood" from the author's point-of-view. I recommend all three, but the book stands alone on its own merits. "Capote" shows the author as being another casualty of that chilly Kansas night.
