So I am studying In Chilly Blood for the primary time, and I get to the descriptions of the homicide scene. I abruptly notice I forgot what 12 months this takes place, and I pause to google – it is 1959 – however then I discover one other hyperlink within the outcomes, and I click on it. Crime scene images, identical to Capote wrote it. And now it is 1am and I can not get to sleep, and I am picturing Kenyon’s physique within the picture and have put down the e book.
All this to say: I most likely should not learn true crime at evening. I am questioning it y’all really feel that manner, too. I keep in mind once I was a child studying Helter Skelter, I might must put the e book out of my room at evening as a result of it was “too scary,” despite the fact that I cherished it within the daytime. Apparently I have not discovered!
Does studying true crime hold you up at evening? Or do you examine it and nonetheless go to sleep simply? Does it matter what kind of crime, or who the victims are? What about images or movies?
