Jul 26, Kaylee rated it liked it Shelves: I have only a few problems with this book: Time line gets a bit confused, he doesn't make it clear enough when he is using an alias for a witness so it reads as if he is just take random peoples word for things with no back up of knowing if they were actually there I'm sure he did actually check he just doesn't make it clear enough to a casual reader.
He keeps referring to Mary Brunner as Marie O'Brien without making it clear that's who he means also I don't know where he got the info for that I have only a few problems with this book: He keeps referring to Mary Brunner as Marie O'Brien without making it clear that's who he means also I don't know where he got the info for that name. It gets hard to tell who is recounting events as everything is just one long he said she said switching from one person to another so you have to go back to check who he or she might be.
Yes, I had read how many times each victim had been stabbed, but to actually see these photos was very disturbing. While I do recommend this book as a good read, I would caution anyone to think twice before viewing the photosthey are not images that are easily forgotten.
I sincerely hope each time one of the heartless murderers appears before a parole board, these graghic photos will be presented as proof that none of these people should EVER be set free! I regret buying this book. Yet he shows pictures of Mary Brunner using her real name.
I was highly disappointed in this book.
I expected much more from Mr. I will add this book to my collection and more than likely never read it again.
Unless you are an avid collector of Manson Family books, I would let this one pass. Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. One person found this helpful. This book gave a interesting glimpse into life in the late s. It also presented versions of those involved that you will not see fully in newer books, interviews or books authored by the "family members" themselves after time in prison and some being "born again". This book described Manson's early life in detail without the typical "he was sold for a pitcher of beer" stories.
Some things that I could've done without were the lengthy interviews with Bobby B; they began to ramble and sound like babble to me. Also, the description of Manson in the beginning of the book was a little overly dramatic for my taste. I have never bought into the media's version of Manson - a hippie guru who has the power to change in front of your eyes and control those around him. That is what the media wants to portray, not anything Manson wanted portrayed.
Also, the pictures were a bit much and not necessary to sell the book.
Editorial Reviews. Review. "John Gilmore approaches Manson in an unique manner; not as the horror stricken outsider from the straight world, but as the jaded.

I think it was disrespectful to the family of the deceased to publish morgue and autopsy photos. All in all this was a good book and I would recommend it for those interested in this subject. Very good book, with alot of unknown facts. This book on Manson is quite interesting Not a bad read at all. There really is no new information, except a paragrapgh here and there, but all in all, it was a pretty accurate book.
What shocked me were the photo's of all the victims in the morgue. Quite Morbid, horrifying, and scary. You can see what Manson and his monsters did to all those poor victims. So take this review as a "warning" when you buy this book. If you have a week stomach, don't turn to the middle of the book where the photo's are. I know some other[s] have suggested that the morgue pictures are truly horrible.
Well, I must be very thick-skinned because they really weren't. The black-and-white photos in this book have been all over the internet already, so they weren't anything I hadn't seen before. This book itself is "just okay".
Originally released as 'The Garbage People' in '71, this is a great read for those interested in the real story of an amazing man.
