In Cold Blood FInal
To start I am appreciative of the extension I was given due to the unfortunate cirumstances that happened the weekend before. In Cold Blood was a diffrent book.

However once Dick and Perry start behaving suspicously the action picked up. I think the main disconnect from the book is I could never relate in any way to the characters. There was a dissconnect I never found a way to over come. I think it stemmed from the animalistic natures of Dick and Perry. Their personality conflicted with my own personality to greatly for me to gain any affinity toward them. I hope in future books I am able to overcome these diffrent obstacles and enjoy books better.
