Helter Skelter: The True Story of the Manson Murders


“I haven’t decided yet what I am or who I am” -Charles Manson

This book took a while to get through. It was a slow read because of the fact that it is nonfiction and based completely on facts. I love true crime shows and movies but this is my first time reading a true crime novel. I can honestly say I enjoyed it and will be finding my next true crime fix.

One of the things that killed me about this story was the people. They were remorseless and seemed not to care that they killed someone! I also did not care for the final lawyer of Manson. He completely kept the trial going longer than it should have gone. These things made this case interesting and infuriating.

I recommend it to anyone who wants to know how the actual case went.
