Helter Skelter Book Club: Week 10




We are getting close to the end now! And unsurprisingly things are just as weird, or perhaps even weirder.

This section deals with one topic I think is so, so crazy and I honestly can't believe I didn't know about it before reading this book. RONALD HUGHES GOES MISSING. One of Manson's attorneys just "disappears." I find this to be so terrifying and absurd, that I felt like Bulgosi almost underplays it.. Like how does the trial just keep on going after this? If I had been anywhere near the courtroom for the past seven months I would be like "that's it, I'm out."

I thought it was also sort of interesting to read about the jury and when this trial took place. I know a few weeks ago I talked a lot about how long this trial was and how hard it would be on the jury, but in this section we get to see exactly when they were away from their families. The jury is stuck in those hotel rooms during Christmas and New Years ... can you imagine how shitting. It's kind of cool to read now since we are almost into the holidays ourselves.

The other thing I thought was so, so funny was that Bulgosi mentions how the jurors started going to Disneyland together and would go out clubbing ... how hilarious. Lifelong friends I guess.

The last thing I will mention is that I was very interested in the sections dealing with that one younger juror who has a crush on Linda... There is actually a movie about this but I can't remember what its called.
