Columbine
Columbine | Dave Cullen
EXPANDED WITH A NEW EPILOGUE "The tragedies keep coming. As we reel from the latest horror . . . " So begins a new epilogue, illustrating how Columbine became the template for nearly two decades of "spectacle murders." It is a false script, seized upon by a generation of new killers. In the wake of Newtown, Aurora, and Virginia Tech, the imperative to understand the crime that sparked this plague grows more urgent every year. What really happened April 20, 1999? The horror left an indelible stamp on the American psyche, but most of what we "know" is wrong. It wasn't about jocks, Goths, or the Trench Coat Mafia. Dave Cullen was one of the first reporters on scene, and spent ten years on this book-widely recognized as the definitive account. With a keen investigative eye and psychological acumen, he draws on mountains of evidence, insight from the world's leading forensic psychologists, and the killers' own words and drawings-several reproduced in a new appendix. Cullen paints raw portraits of two polar opposite killers. They contrast starkly with the flashes of resilience and redemption among the survivors.

I‘m having to stop every chapter or two. Excellently written. I was in college when this happened...I remember it, but wasn‘t glued to the news, so I‘m taking the time to look up people in the book. In each of these school shootings, it‘s astounding how many signs were ignored. 😩

BarbaraBB Great review. And great pic. 1w

Columbine | Dave Cullen

The final act of the killers was among their cruelest: they deprived the survivors of a living perpetrator. They deprived the families of a focus for their anger, and their blame. There would be no cathartic trial for the victims. There was no killer to rebuke in a courtroom, no judge to implore to impose the maximum penalty. ... Displaced anger would riddle the community for years.

It is an axiom of journalism that disaster stories begin in confusion and grow clearer over time. Facts rush in, the fog lifts, an accurate picture solidifies. The public accepts this. But the final portrait is often furthest from the truth.

So sad, but fascinating. I was a sophomore when Columbine happened. I had no idea how many misconceptions I‘d absorbed about the whole thing.

It‘s crazy how I‘ve believed incorrectly for 20 years, based on how things were reported in the immediate aftermath. #howjessreadsin2019

Prairiegirl_reading I totally agree. I was telling my husband about the things I thought were true that this book claims are not. Fascinating but deeply disturbing and it made me really mad too. For a lot of reasons. 4w
Megabooks Such an important book. It nearly broke Cullen to write it, as he says in Parkland. But the activism of the Parkland kids helped rebuild him, which I think is amazing! 4w
howjessreads Yes! Totally frustrating @Prairiegirl_reading ! And I definitely want to read Parkland now @Megabooks. 3w
Prairiegirl_reading @Megabooks I can‘t imagine how it would effect someone to be so submerged in this research for such a long time. Just reading the murderer‘s journals would be traumatic. It‘s was deeply disturbing just to read never mind do all the research and then write this. I‘ve got Parkland on my tbr shelf. I‘ll have to get to it soon. 3w

A really in depth look at what really happened at Columbine. It really opened my eyes and made me realise how much the press had built an image of the two killers that was completely incorrect. A very detailed, well written book that, if you want to know what happened, will give you the facts.

I avoided this book for a long time and it was every bit as harrowing as I feared. The events of Columbine were tragic and the fact that we are still battling to keep kids safe in schools made me want to scream at times. Still there was so much that I did not know about Columbine and so much of what I thought I knew was wrong. Glad I listened to this well done audiobook.

Lovesbooks87 I felt the same way. I would also recommend reading A Mother's Reckoning. It is written by one of the shooters mom. I have always wondered how someone didn't see the signs in their child and this book gave in inside look of the events. 1mo
Jas16 @Lovesbooks87 I read Klebold‘s memoir a few months ago which helped convince me that I needed to read this book too. I cannot imagine being in her shoes. 1mo

Finally finished this goodie I got from the True Crime swap with @aprilpohren and it took me almost a month! It was hard to finish due to the emotional toll it took on me. Read like fiction, but knowing that it‘s not made this one hard to finish. Im glad I read it since it was clear that what little I remembered about Columbine was inaccurate.

Heart wrenching.

This was such an in-depth retelling of a day that I will always remember. My heart goes out to the families of those thirteen victims, and my heart goes out to the families of the shooters as well. How do you move on after knowing your child was responsible for so much death and sadness?

I loved the follow-ups at the end of this book that showed even in our darkest days, we can find light again.

A book very much worth reading

TheWordJar I will never forget that day either, and this book was such a tough, but needed, read. You might also be interested in Sue Klebold‘s book. That one shredded my heart. 💔 4mo

I read Sue Klebold‘s account a bit back, and I knew I wanted to read Columbine sometime soon.

Soon is now.

It is heartbreaking and devastating, and I had tears in my eyes as I went for my evening walk.

But already, at only 35% of the way, I am thankful to Dave Cullen for working so hard to provide this in-depth true account of what happened.

RadicalReader I absolutely loved both books absolutely heartbreaking events but she‘s so bold to be able to talk about what happened 5mo

Oops I'm a bit behind on my reviews! I finally finished Columbine 👍
Dave Cullen worked on this for about 10 years if I'm not mistaken. This is a myth-busting in-depth journalistic study of what took place behind the most notorious school shooting in the history of the US. I was too young to remember hearing anything at the time but everybody knows about Columbine. Or they don't at all... which is exactly what Cullen explores in this book.

The_Literary_Jedi We used to read this book at the high school I teach at - we are no longer “allowed” to make it required reading for our classes but we still have a full class set and I encourage students to read it along with Marieke Nijkamp‘s “This is Where It Ends.” Many students do and are moved by both as well as more open to discussion and drills 5mo

Going from a book talking about the mistreatment of women to this one probably isn‘t the best of ideas before bed. I can‘t stop reading though, I suppose it‘s morbid curiosity and disbelief that one person could do such atrocities to another.

Wow. This book was tough to get through. It just made me so angry. I had read Parkland a few months ago and that book was full of hope and inspiration. This was a very different story full of tragedy and blame. The columbine massacre could have been, should have been, stopped before it happened, and the media also has gotten so much wrong.

Bklover The part that really bothered me was how much the media got wrong. It seemed so reckless. This book was incredible though. 6mo
cathysaid Yes. All of that. When I was finished I was so mad, sad, bereft, bewildered... Makes no sense. None of it makes sense. 💔 6mo

I‘m really struggling with this one. It‘s not the subject matter—it‘s the writing. It‘s choppy at the sentence and scene level, and I can‘t keep track of all these names and locations. I was 12 when the Columbine shooting happened and it had a big impact on me, so I wanted to understand more about it, especially since this book is supposed to upend many of the myths I believed, but so far it is muddying far more than clarifying. Anyone else agree?

CouronneDhiver Try the audio ... I really enjoyed it. 7mo
Clare-Dragonfly @CouronneDhiver Hmm… I‘m not sure whether that would be better or worse. I‘d skate past the choppy writing, but it would be even harder to keep track of names and places. 7mo

This book was fantastic. A tough subject matter for sure but I found this book incredibly informative.

I was only 11 when Columbine happened and I discovered that the vast majority of my vague notions/memories about what transpired were in fact largely myths perpetuated by the media at the time (this is candidly discussed by the author who is a journalist that was involved in the original coverage). Definitely would recommend!

I finished this one last night. I found it incredibly interesting but definitely a tough subject. I was only 7 when it happened and I live in the UK so I don‘t have any recollection of the event itself. It was fascinating and disturbing to read about all the different factors at play and misinformation put out at the time. It was reading about the long painful recovery of some the victims that really got to me - just overwhelming sad and unfair.

BookNAround Sue Klebold wrote A Mother‘s Reckoning about her son and Columbine. It‘s a fantastic but tough book that makes a great companion to this one. 8mo
Slajaunie The school counselor came to my school to tell us about her experience. 8mo
Christine11 @BookNAround Thank you! I‘ve added it to my TBR and I‘ll definitely read it soon - I‘d be interested to read what she has to say because it must have put her in a situation that felt so impossible. 8mo

The Columbine high school killings were so different from what I thought had happened. This was a fascinating book that took the author ten years to research and write. Highly recommend.

SassyBookworm @PaperbackPirate yes me too! Had me kinda upset at the police who kept hiding everything. I think they thought their intentions were good but it was a huge mistake. 14mo
callielafleur He's writing a new book about Parkland now, which should be good. Honestly though, I wish he would give it a little bit more time- I think part of the reason Columbine is so amazing is because of the digging he did for details after, and there hasn't really been enough time for that kind of investigation and reflection. 14mo

This!!!! This is why I want to find an old varsity professor and whack them so hard with this book that they fall flat on their ass! The course was mediastudies. The objective: hand in a paper on the influence of media on children. Case study: Columbine. Prevailing point of view of professor: "because they watch violent movies and played violent video games"
Continue in comments...

GlitterGirl The entire class handed in papers on various cases and contributed the violence to movies and video games...I did my paper on Columbine...giving evidence that it was not violent movies etc, that other factors where in play... And this god forsaken professor gave me a pass mark, but just a pass, as in 50% or something like that because: she cant fail me, the paper was handed in, the research was done, every guide line followed etc. 1y
GlitterGirl But no marks for content because I was clearly wrong in drawing conclusions that violent movies and video games was not the reason for the shootings!! Never mind the evidence to the contrary!!!!!!!! That was an A+ paper but the professor could not get over preconceptions! 😡😡😡👿👿👿👿 1y
