    Description

    In the summer of 1969, Leslie Van Houten and Patricia Krenwinkel carried out horrific acts of butchery on the orders of the charismatic cult leader Charles Manson. At their murder trial the following year, lead prosecutor Vincent Bugliosi described the two so-called Manson Women as "human monsters". But to anyone who knew them growing up, they were bright, promising girls, seemingly incapable of such an unfathomable crime.

    Award-winning journalist Nikki Meredith began visiting Van Houten and Krenwinkel in prison to discover how they had changed during their incarceration. The more Meredith got to know them, the more she was lured into a deeper dilemma: What compels "normal" people to do unspeakable things?

    The author's relationship with her subjects provides a chilling lens through which we gain insight into a particular kind of woman capable of a particular kind of brutality. Through their stories, Nikki Meredith takes listeners on a dark journey into the very heart of evil.

    The title should be "ME,ME,ME."

    This book was more about Ms. Meredith than it was about the the Manson girls, as if Pat and Leslie were an afterthought in the story of HER life. Save your credits.

    Disappointing

    This book was not about the Manson women, it was a memoir about the author. The author used first person narrative to relate every aspect of the women’s story, at the expense of enlightening readers on the lives of the women, post cult and in prison. I learned much about the author’s youth, but little else.

    Wanted more substance

    This book was really a vehicle for the author to write about her life, connections to the Manson family, and her friendship with Leslie Van Houten. There was some interesting revelations about the family and Van Houten but I wanted more professional analysis of the dynamics and causes. It is a very long book because of the superfluous details included about the authors life. I appreciate her friendship with Van Houten and observations of her character. I’ve thought Van Houten has truly rehabilitated herself and hope she can be paroled. The book was interesting enough to keep me listening but a lot of the authors personal story should have been edited.
