    Columbine Epub ¼ Hardcover columbine ebok, Columbine EpubI 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 hamlet of 30000 everyone began looking askance at the outsiders the loners the kids who came to school dressed in black and roamed the halls with a look on their faces like they hated the world and it deserved itHow surreal was it to turn on the television about a year later after class in my freshman dorm room to see the students from my high school running from the building fleeing danger while news copters circled overheard Turned out the bombing incident was the result of an idi

    Columbine Epub ¼ Hardcover columbine ebok, Columbine EpubWhat 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 waste one thought on this loathsome pair Eric Harris and Dy

    Columbine Epub ¼ Hardcover columbine ebok, Columbine EpubThere 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 in April 1999 but also the vast array of sentiments surrounding this shooting both before and afterwards The book throughly examines all three time periods though not i

    Columbine Epub ¼ Hardcover columbine ebok, Columbine EpubRight 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 wer

    Columbine Epub ¼ Hardcover columbine ebok, Columbine EpubThis is a difficult review to write Going in you know the content will be extreme controversial and upsetting While that was the case it was also uite eye opening As the book gets into the details of the massacre before during and after it is going to be a difficult book for many But the depth which the author explores this event is very important in order to clear up all of the details and set the record straight I think true crime fans will be enthralled with this bookThe biggest thing I took from this is it is bad to jump to conclusions and you should not let fiction become fact Going in I thought I knew the basics surrounding the tragedy but it turns out that a lot of what I thought I knew is wrong Seeing how once the event began the population was hungry for answers and the chain of information became like a giant game of telephone and what often ended up in print or on TV is far from the truth In fact the author did so goo

    Columbine Epub ¼ Hardcover columbine ebok, Columbine EpubAfter 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 probably rate this book five starsBut if you've spent years studying Columbine and other school shootings if you've read the 12000 d
