Alright, so this may not appeal to everyone. I get that. But if you're looking for a grossly fascinating and gruesome read, I would highly recommend this book. Zack got this for me for my birthday and I started reading it immediately. My goal is to finish it tonight (though that may be hard since Jim and Pam are getting married tonight on the Office and I can't miss that) but if not tonight then definitely by the weekend.
Without giving too much away I'll just tell you that its the true story of a couple from here in New Orleans and their murder/suicide that took place a few years ago (2006) shortly after they survived hurricane Katrina. I think at the time the media had a field day with the story but now that I'm 2/3 of the way through the book I realize that there's a LOT more to it than what was probably reported at the time. I think it's also fair to say that both of these people were kinda, sorta ABSOLUTELY nuts.
Maybe I'm more interested in such things now that I live here but like I said, while graphic and gruesome it is fascinating.
