    "Entertaining but inaccurate"

    This is a decent book, filling in the blanks of Helter Skelter. However, there are a lot of inaccuracies.

    Story
    "THE MOST INFORMATIVE MANSON BOOK EVER WRITTEN"
    What made the experience of listening to Charles Manson Coming Down Fast the most enjoyable?

    This is the closest book to the best true crime story ever written, Helter Skelter by Vincent Bugliosi and Curt Gentry.


    What other book might you compare Charles Manson Coming Down Fast to and why?

    Three books come to mind! Helter Skelter, by Ann Rule, A Stranger Beside Me, the story about Ted Bundy, and Charles Manson and Coming Down Fast!<br/><br/>Coming Down Fast, Stranger, and Helter Skelter should be a part of anyone's library interested in True Crime!


    Which character – as performed by Peter Curran – was your favorite?

    He was OK! Many words not pronounced correctly. This did not bother me a bit. Peter did a good job!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    New information I never knew about


    Any additional comments?

    A must read/listen for all true crime fans!

    Story
    "Fills in what Helter Skelter left out"
    If you could sum up Charles Manson Coming Down Fast in three words, what would they be?

    Excellent, detailed, well-told


    What did you like best about this story?

    Honestly, I thought I knew details of this case, but I learned a lot more that I hadn't seen anywhere else.


    Have you listened to any of Peter Curran’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I am looking forward to hearing more of Peter Curran. I LOVED his reading. His voice is pleasant and easy to listen to. I would love to hear him read more titles.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes. Of course, it was too long for one sitting, but I did listen to it twice back to back.


    Any additional comments?

    More Peter Curran please!
