Helter Skelter: The True Story of the Manson Murders by Vincent Bugliosi
Helter Skelter: The True Story of the Manson Murders

AciDTrip, September 10, 2006

I first came across this book when I was staying at my grandma's cabin for the summer. I knew Charles Manson had something to do with murder, but thats about it. So I started reading, not knowing what I was getting myslef into. For the next week, I spent most of my time reading and going back and reading parts again so i totally understood what was happening. After I finished the book, I went from knowing little, to knowing almost everything there was to know about the Manson Family, the muders, and the trials. I recommend this to anyone who likes non-fiction, because reading it and knowing it all really happened, makes it that much more creepy, which makes it impossible to put down.

Go Ask Alice by Anonymous
Go Ask Alice

AciDTrip, September 10, 2006

i havent actually gotten the chance to read this book..but i know that its supposed to be a real 15 year old girl's diary. almost everything i've ever read about this book says thats not true. Also, the girl's name isnt Alice, her name is never mentioned, although there is an alice but shes only involved in a few paragraphs of the begining chapters. But still, from what ive read and know about his book, i would recommend it to most teenagers, especially the ones who are experimenting with drugs. Although some of the things that happen in this book arent realistic, i think it would be an intersting story.
P.S. anyone who doesnt feel like reading the book, there was a movie made back in the 70's where william shatner plays the troubled girl's father.
