      I wrote the book, so I ll forego rating it, just thought it should show up my list so you would find me But I m new to , so tell me if I m going about it all wrong Thanks.

      I used to think that the Columbine massacre would be the defining event of my generation, the one friends and I would discuss years later, trading where you when stories like I d heard my parents do when remembering John F Kennedy It seemed so monumental at the time I was a senior in high school, the same age as the killers The media attention was omnipresent and relentless and soon even at my small town school and when I say small town, I mean it, not the way the news will describe a sleepy ham [...]

      What does it matter that two crazy teenagers shot 12 other teenagers and one teacher to death at a school somewhere in the American Midwest over ten years ago It was just another school shooting and since then we have had Virginia Tech which accounted for nearly three times as many victims, didn t it, not to mention any amount of death and catastrophe in places other than schools Why should anyone want to write a book about this particular school shooting a decade down the line Why should we was [...]

    4. BillKerwin on said:

      The definitive book on the most memorable US school shooting at least before Newtown by a reporter who has followed the story for at least last ten years Dave Cullen demonstrates conclusively that almost everything we thought we knew about Columbine was wrong 1 the shooters weren t particular objects of bullying, obvious misfits, members of the trench coat mafia or Marilyn Manson fans, 2 the shooters didn t target jocks or minorities they hated a lot of things, including Country Music, Puff Dadd [...]

    5. Gus Sanchez on said:

      Right off the bat, I will state that Columbine is one of the most riveting, fascinating, heartbreaking and revolting works of non fiction you will ever read What sets Columbine apart from all of the investigative reporting done during the aftermath of perhaps the most notorious school shooting in US history is Dave Cullen s skillful ability to cut through the mythology and hysteria surrounding the entire event Many of the myths that were accepted as fact that Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold were b [...]

      On April 20th, 1999, two students of Columbine High arrived at their school for the last time They were about to begin what would be known as the deadliest schooting in an American high school, killing one teacher and twelve students What is less known is that Columbine has originally been planned as a bombing the pair has left two petrol bombs in the school cafeteria, and positioned themselves outside the entrances so they could shoot possible survivors it is probable that had the bombs explode [...]

      There comes a time that everyone must not only see outside the box, but read things that make them less than comfortable Life is not always honeybees and flowers bursting with colour Dave Cullen offers this sobering perspective as he tackles an insightful view into one of the worst school shootings in history, though I am not prepared to posit how one ranks school shootings from best to worst Cullen pulls the reader in to explore not only the event that took place in a small Colorado community i [...]

    8. Matt on said:

      I was a senior in high school on April 20, 1999 I thought the same thoughts as every other student in the country could it happen here who among my classmates are potential threats what would I do The Columbine Massacre remains the most famous school shooting in history It goes beyond body counts It wasn t the first shooting, it wasn t the last, and after Virginia Tech, it isn t the worst Something about it, though, stands out It marked an evolution in youth violence a horrible melding of mass m [...]

      After reading this book, pen in hand, my copy was so marked up with scrawls and underlining that there might have been a second book written in the margins I wish I could say it was praise for the author s insight into the Columbine tragedy, but instead it was sheer incredulity at the number of mistakes, lies, and misperceptions Cullen is trying to pass off as truth If your only exposure to Columbine was watching it unfold live on tv, and then maybe reading a few magazine articles, you will prob [...]

      4.0 stars This poignant, extremely well done true crime history takes a comprehensive look at the Columbine massacre As a rule, I do not read a lot of true crime stories or follow too closely these kinds of national tragedies when they occur I just find it too depressing Thus, before I picked up this book, my knowledge of the events surrounding Columbine was limited to headlines and 10 minute news segments that dealt with very little beyond the surface of the shooting This award winning book wri [...]

    11. Mariah on said:

      I have been wanting to read this book ever since it went through my newsfeed on and boy, did this book not disappoint This was a phenomenal story It was well written and researched This book was about explaining what happened on April 20, 1999 the start for the next two decades of school shooting It was informative in telling that most of the information that we have been told about Columbine had been wrong It wasn t about jocks, Goths, or the Trench Coat Mafia Dave Cullen the author was one of [...]

    12. Dem on said:

      I had to constantly remind myself while reading Columbine that this wasNot Fiction.I vaguely remember hearing about this massacre on the news back in the late 1990s but this has made me realise how little attention I pay to media reports as only while reading this book did I realise how devastating and shocking April 20th was for a whole community of people in Colorado.On 20th April 1999 Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold drove to their school, planted two bombs and took up stance outside the entranc [...]

      1 Last night I googled Eric Harris Columbine , I was curious what the little monster looked like He looked so average and normal, no wonder I hadn t remembered what he looked like from the incessant news coverage 11 years ago One can see pictures of him and Dylan Kebold dead in the library from at least two different angles in google images Apparently some people believe that there is still to the Columbine story, that something else happened to two boys to make this happen 2 I ve read this boo [...]

      I have to hand it to you, April You truly know how to test human endurance After my usual routine of blasting NPR all week at work while entering data, I decided yesterday that I had well beyond reached my horror, disgust, frustration, and doomsday fears capacity, shut off the station, plugged up my ears, and listened to 69 Love Songs and m m s discography all the way through instead Despite the fact that I keyed in the date hundreds of times, it never crossed my mind what the symbol I was repea [...]

      02 15 18 I originally wrote this review in 2013 and I thought this would be a good day to bump it up into the feed When I re read this, I squelched the urge to rewrite any of it Which I will doter I cringe at what I had written because I did want to preserve what I was feeling at the time In fact, I totally forgot I even wrote this If you have the time, read the commentsat s where the most interesting stuff happens It s unbelievable what has happened to this country in the past five years.Also, [...]

    16. Will Byrnes on said:

      The very word Columbine summons an image of gun toting teens mowing down teachers and students in their high schools In the media frenzy of the time and in the years since certain misconceptions about the event have found their way into common wisdom The perpetrators were portrayed as Goths, gays, members of a trenchcoat wearing gang, victims of bullying jocks and social outcasts None of this was true Cullen was one of the reporters on the scene when Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold killed thirteen [...]

    17. Britany on said:

      The moment the shooting at Columbine happened would be a moment that I would never forget It would alter the way I experienced school and it would break the safe bubble of invincibility I always thought that I had I was in 8th grade on April 20, 1999 getting ready to graduate from middle school and walk across the shared campus to high school I was young and impressionable and the circumstances and media reporting on this event was absorbed differently than it was for future school shooting even [...]

    18. Tamora Pierce on said:

      This is the first complete coverage of the 1999 Columbine high school shooting that s been published, with information on the journals and videotapes seized by the police, on the survivors and their families, on the political changes in the town, on the school before and after It debunks the jock revenge and heavy metal theories that the media generated in the information vacuum after the shootings and gives the information that proves there was no conspiracy.I was disappointed at first by the l [...]

      About and around 19 years ago, I used to go to TT s in Cambridge, MA on Mondays for Stone Soup Poetry Maurice used to read during open mike and Brother Blue would perform and after awhile you d get to know all the regulars There was the really cute quiet guy who totally copped the beatnik look and would madly scribble in his notebook while others performed only to shatter on stage I m talking complete, make yourself hoarse kind of raging, spitting his words out, knocking down chairs Quite a frea [...]

    20. Diane on said:

      This was the best nonfiction book I read in 2009, and it s an incredible piece of journalism A lot of media attention was given to the mass shootings at Columbine High School in Colorado on April 20, 1999, but so many of the details that were reported in those first few weeks were dead wrong This book shattered all the things I thought I knew about the Columbine shootings For example, it didn t have anything to do with jocks, gays, bullies, the Trench Coat Mafia or Marilyn Manson Eric Harris was [...]

    21. Jonetta on said:

      I recently read Sue Klebold s A Mother s Reckoning Living in the Aftermath of Tragedy, which is outstanding, so I thought it best to listen to a definitive account of not only what happened at Columbine but also objective analyses of the two shooters, Dylan Klebold and Eric Harris Sue made some assertions about Eric Harris and her son that made me wonder if these were her perceptions or those widely shared Thankfully, this story supports so much of what she shared in her story so my opinion of t [...]

    22. Jim on said:

      If you only read one book on the Columbine massacre, this should be the one Cullen has devoted almost ten years of research to the subject and cuts through the crap that has grown up around the tragedy and the two boys who committed the crimes It makes for depressing reading, but it is highly readable despite that.The widely held picture of Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold is of a pair of angry loners, the products of parental neglect, who were bullied at school and who killed out of revenge Cullen [...]

    23. Sarah on said:

      This book was not easy to read or listen to, in my case But it is incredibly informative, if you can get past the emotional aspect Such an intense experience, but really, really well done.

    24. Vikki on said:

      The Columbine shooting was one of the defining moments in the American history and a turning point in the way schools handled school bullying and student safety This happened my freshman year of high school and I remember how this scared so many people I even had a science teacher have class discussion on what we should do if we had a shooting at our school and we were in his classroom Reading this book opened my eyes to all the misinformation coming out at the time of the shootings and after I [...]

    25. Jeanette"Astute Crabbist" on said:

      It s inexpressibly sad that a book like this needed to be written, but we could not have asked for a better person to write it The book is perfect Cullen tells the entire story from all perspectives with honesty, professionalism, and great sensitivity He dispels all of the myths and outright lies that came out of this tragedy, and explains how they came to be accepted as truth He gives the full background on Harris and Klebold, removing the mystification as to why this happened In short, Harris [...]

    26. Debbie "DJ" on said:

      This is the end all, tell all, book of everything you ever wanted to know about Columbine I found it riveting, although sometimes a little too much However, that didn t disturb me as the author had spent so much time and knew every detail I loved the psychological look at these two boy s life s, wow was it disturbing Also, the Sheriffs department that took so long to produce a final report and the reasons why are revealed So much pain and stress could have been reduced for this town if only they [...]

    27. Jenn "Awww Yeaaahhh" on said:

      Columbine is one of the most compelling and chilling true crime novels I ve ever read This non fiction reads like a novel and traces the history leading up to the event as well as it s aftermath An impressive work of investigative journalism, the book is written from information from the killers journals, videotapes Basement Videos , website, police files, and interviews with survivors, their families, classmates, administrators, law enforcement, and experts Cullen debunks a lot of the theories [...]

    28. Beth (Ducky) on said:

      I am without words on this.Thoughts on ColumbineThere are things that happen in life that you have no words for You don t know how to talk about it but you want to know everything about it No matter how old you were when it happened, you probably remember something about April 20, 1999.I was pretty young when it happened just 4 years old I don t remember this and I ve been shielded from it for most of my life I knew the main parts but I didn t know the things that aren t talked about every year [...]

    29. Steve on said:

      When it comes to school attacks, it s becoming clear that April is the cruelest month As I sit here writing this, there s been yet another shooting event down in Christiansburg, Va Some asshole, who sounds a lot like Eric Harris, shot two young women with a shotgun The women are still alive Pray for their recovery.The Columbine attack occurred on April 20, 1999 It had been planned for months, and if you follow Cullen s timeline trajectory I do , the chain of events pipe bombs, vandalism, hate ra [...]

      I graduated in 1985 from Smoky Hill High School in Aurora, Colorado I remained in the area for a few years, and I still have family there A few years later, I joined the US Air Force I still go back when I can, but vacations aren t cheap.Thanks to the internet, media, and remaining family in the area, I keep up with some of the important events I follow the Broncos, Avalanche, and Rockies, counting them among my favorite sports teams By April 20, 1999, I hadn t been back for awhile and one event [...]
