  1. Dave Cullen Says:

    Thanks for the shout-out on my book, Columbine. I was tickled to get the nom, and honored, too.

    Don Leslie did a great job as narrator. I have not met him yet, but hoping to.

    almost all of the Audie nominated title are available as audio cds as well (including “Columbine” – congrats on your success, Mr. Cullen).

  3. Marina Says:

    I listened to Columbine on the audio cd and I was pulled in from the very start–both by the story and narrator. I highly recommend it.

    Cullen , who first reported on the story for the online magazine Salon, acknowledges in the book’s source notes that thoughts he attributes to Klebold and Harris are conjecture gleaned from the record the pair left behind.

    Jeff Kass takes a more straightforward approach in “Columbine: A True Crime Story,” working backward from the events of the fateful day.
    The Denver Post

    Mr. Cullen insists that the killers enjoyed “far more friends than the average adolescent,” with Harris in particular being a regular Casanova who “on the ultimate high school scorecard . . . outscored much of the football team.” The author’s footnotes do not reveal how he knows this; when I asked him about it while preparing this review, Mr. Cullen said he did not necessarily mean to imply that Harris was sexually active. But what else would such words mean?

    “Eric and Dylan never had any girlfriends,” the more sober Mr. Kass writes, and were “probably virgins upon death.”
    Wall Street Journal
