More than you ever thought you'd know about the Manson Family.
As a crime television show lover and a fan of reading about true crimes, I was all over Helter Skelter when I first read about the Manson Family and the havoc that they wreaked.      Vincent Bugliosi, who cowrote this book with Curt Gentry, was the prosecutor of this case and I'm so glad that he chronicled his brush with the case in Helter Skelter.  Not too many others could have offered the same insights as Bugliosi did.  He's one of few people who had …

OK, I read Helter Skelter when I was in high school back in the mid 70s.  I remembered it being very intense, but I'm an adult now, and hadn't given much thought to just how intense this account of the Manson murders really is.      So rereading it while I was alone in an apartment in Manchester, UK a long way from anyone I know and love was probably a mistake.  I realized from page one that I was going to need light (every light in the apartment) and noise …

A part of our history everyone should read. It is amazing to see the level of mind control.

DELETE THESE QUESTIONS IF/AFTER YOU RESPOND!!        I was terrrified and shocked that one person could have so much control over anyone. I would recommend this to true crime readers, but not for the faint.  I watch and read alot of true crime but none have left me so scared and horrified as this one.  I read it when I was younger and almost couldn't finish it because of how scare I was.  Thought since I was older it would be different but it wasn't.  …

review by . June 20, 2010
   I first read the book in high school for a case study that i was doing for a Forensics class. Once i started reading this book i couldn't stop the way this book was written was simply amazing. The whole book was an in depth look of the Manson Family and their killings the trials after. It was such an interesting book, the amount of information you get in this book about the whole process of the murders is very impressive. One would ask how Vincent Bugliosi would be able to get this …

This book is one that you will be shocked as you read it. I read it as younger girl for the first time. I was a teenager and thought it looked interesting at the library.  I did not realize how graphic the killings were and all about this story. It was a bit shocking to me realizing that people exist in the world that are this way.      Charles Manson is a famous serial killer.  He had what I would call a cult following.  He had men, women, and children that lived …
