Characters ¸ In Cold Blood Í PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Summary In Cold Blood On November 15 1959 in the small town of Holcomb Kansas four members of the Clutter family were savagely murdered by blasts from a shotgun held a few inches from their faces There was no apparent motive for the crime and there were almost no clues. I just wonder why it took me so long to get this masterpiece on my currently reading shelf What a breathtaking story And told in the most amazing novelistic style The cold blooded murders in Kansas in 1956 is described by a cold distant narrator via the interviews of the family acuaintances and community around the victims and the hair raising stories of Perry and Bobby the murderers It is a real page turner I couldn t put it down The descriptions of the youth of all the tragic protagonists are explored from every angle as under a magnifying glass In Cold Blood kept me thinking that most of the recent murder mystery shows and movies were indebted to this piece of literature that Capote probably deserved a Pulitzer for but was passed over helas in 1965 There is this strange homoeroticism between the two murderers who call each other sugar and honey but who both spout homophobic words throughout Like the lawyers I felt Richard was the coldest one and Perry the most twisted and tragic This book is a true masterpiece of the non fiction novel even if some of the facts brought out by Capote were disputed and its narration is stupendous in character development and maintaining an enormous amount of suspense end to end It is even astounding because the reader already knows who commits the crime the novel only elucidates the why and even that is ambiguous and pathetic An awesome readNote that in A Capote Reader there is a great short essay about the making of the movie In Cold Blood where Capote talks a bit about the 6 years it took him to write this masterpiece Haven t seen the movie yet UPDATE I finally saw the movie Capote and it was absolutely amazing as a backstory to this book I still haven t found the movie In Cold Blood yet
