The reviews for this book were so overwhelmingly positive, and so opposite to the reaction of the group!
It was quite disappointing, not at as expected, lots of potential though...
All agreed it was not a typical true crime book, it was more of a memoir, about the author's personal relationship with "Clark Rockefeller", a notorious con artist and convicted murderer.
All agreed that it was a quick read, but dull, we wanted to know more about "Rockefeller" but the perspective was Kirn's and no one found this appealling/interesting.
I thought this could have been a great read if the author had written it as a journalist, as "Rockefeller" is a fascinating character.
We couldn't figure out why Kirn was "friends" with "Rockefeller" for 10+ years when the relationship seemed so one-sided and while Kirn was totally taken in by his lies he didn't even seem to like him.
Kirn had a long-distance "friendship" with "Rockefeller", who was then charged with a 25-year old murder and sentenced to life in prison.
As usual the club rated the book out of a possible ten points.
The total points for the 11 attendees was 13 so that's an average of 1.2 out of 10!
This book set a record as the lowest-scored book in Whodunit's history!
No one wished to read another book by the author.
