I was 14 when the Columbine massacre occurred I can still vividly remember ll of the news channels here in Minnesota constantly reporting on it I remember this event so well because I uickly learned that they listened to the same music I liked nd so many talk show hosts blaming Rammstein nd Marilyn Manson was just bsurd to me I remember reports that they had been bullied nd I was definitely bullied too I saw similarities between myself nd them nd yet I couldn t understand why they did such thingSue explains her thoughts feelings nd ctions thoroughly nd I completely understand now why Eric Melville; Shame Evil Eye: A Psychoanalytic Reading and Dylan could have thought such thing would help them Mental illnesses re very cruel nd they victimize thousands if not every yearI never blamed Sue nor Brody any of the other parents for what Dylannd Eric did I was 14 nd I knew despite my unhealthy upbringing that my decisions were only mine to own I feel terrible for what the Klebolds nd Harrises went through They were victims too but in the most unfathomable His Voice, His Command and misunderstood way THANK YOU SUE for sharing your storynd sharing little of Dylan with the world You re not monster for loving your son Absolutely fantastic read I ctually couldn t put it down nd smashed through it in one sitting After reading nd learning Kid about Columbine for several months this book was the icing on the cake in terms of different perspective All we ve seen so far Wait Till Next Year - A Memoir are the news reports journalistccounts Venus in Sackcloth: The Magdelen's Origins and Metamorphoses and re enactments seeing the events before duringnd Iced Under after from the eyes of Dylan s mother wasn lmost overwhelming experience The content brilliantly details the bsolute cacophony of emotions nd feelings t the time nd indeed since the event nd it does fantastic job of revealing information we would never have known if it wasn t for the brave words of Sue KleboldI d recommend this to everyone Audiobook Library Overdriveread by Sue KleboldSPOILERS INCLUDEDI haven t felt this incredibly dissatisfied bout Within a Captains Hold (Captains of the Scarlet Night, a book in the way I do like this in very long timeA special thanks to local Goodreads friend LisaVegan for being Butcher a great support discussing issuesnd battles I had daily hour by hour t times with my reckoning living with my thoughts nd feelings in the ftermath of Sue Klebold s memoirIt s unimaginable the horrific devastating shocking pain range of emotions parent faces fter tragedy of this magnitude denial grief loss shock fear sadness sickness guilt shamed etc knowing your child killed 13 students teacher nd injured 24 others I had immediate empathy for these parents years go I didn t blame them I still don tin fact I felt incredible empathy for themWhen I started this book I felt even compassion One Last Kiss and empathy for Sue Klebold Over lunch one day with Lisa I said I had read harsh review of this book which I felt was too harsh this woman is so real our hearts break for her I WAS SURE I WOULD GIVE HER BOOK 5 starsNow I don t think that review was harsh enough By the next day I was writing LisaSO IRATE I had taken complete turn from feeling empathetic to feeling ngry As my reading continued my thoughts nd emotions were mostly judgmental bout this entire book I can t tell you how ngry I felt t times THIS WAS THE BOOK SUE WANTED THE WORLD TO READ To me there is SO MUCH OFF WITH IT I could write pages I still feel sorry for The Shoes Sue Wears Since Her Child shoes Sue wears since her child what he did I m not saying it s fair that she was left to suffer but what I don t respect No One Needs To Know are the choices she made in the print words she wrote With theudacity it took Selections From Great Works of Mawlana Jalal Al-Din Rumi a lot of chutzpah to focus on HERSELFs good loving mother AS MUCH AS SHE DID nd how her sunshine boy was Kisses Don't Lie a good kidnd she lost son too FOR MOST OF THE BOOK over nd over so MUCH I begin to cringe I ctually felt embarrassed nd Murder at Morningside ashamed for so much narcissism she exposed of herselfThere were pages of examples of Dylan s childhood her Sunshine Boy A few of HER INTERPRETATIONS from the examples she shared I saw different than SueI thoughtbout how much denial she was in Dylan was son she wanted to see I don t even blame her for being blind nd having limitations we Dead Perfect all have them But there was so much justification looking for false causesnd turning the story into suicide story s being dominant than Bones To Pick a kid who was mass murderer well I m sorry I think she is still in DenialWhen Sue Introduces Herself Sue introduces herself to people groups wherever she says I Clockworks and Corsets am Sue Klebold mother of son who committed suicide He was lso one of shooters t Columbine Throughout this entire book Sue repeats how good she was many examples dinner with the family she wanted to know who his friends were had rules bout violence in movies etc etc etc nd bout Dylan smart good grades would still snuggle her nd that she had NO IDEA he was capable of this She minimize BOYS WILL BE BOYS the year before when Dylan was rrested for felony New Girl on the Job and wrote paper BOYS the year before when Dylan was Restaurant Weeks Are Murder arrested for felony nd wrote paper school it was so disturbing the teacher. The cclaimed New York Times bestseller by Sue Klebold mother of one of the Columbine shooters bout living in the Her Wounded Warrior aftermath of ColumbineOn April 20 1999 Eric Harrisnd Dylan Klebold walked into Columbine High School in Littleton Colorado Over the course of minutes they would kill twelve students nd teacher nd wound twenty four others before taking their own lives For the last sixteen years Sue Klebold Dylans mother has lived with the indescribable grief nd shame of that day How could her child the promising young man she had loved nd raised be re. ,
Called the parents Is she kidding herself that there were no signsThe denial bout her son starting very earlyWhen Dylan was 10 years old she took him roller skating He was having trouble One House Over (The Neighbors) and falling down lot She wanted to hold his hand THEY HAD VERY DIFFERENT PERSONALITY TRAITS AND DISPOSITIONS It would be hard for caring hovering loving mother to get inside this type of child s head nd needsDylan said he wanted to skate himself he could figure it out himself Sue says it felt like Between You and Me (The Harrisons, an hour waiting for him to make itround the rink that it was so painful watching him fall down so many times But when he made it back he said in Cinderella and the Ghost (The Cursed Princes, anggressive voice see I told you I could do it myself Sue nd her husband concluded Dylan would be ble to ccomplish nything he wanted in life out of his pure will of force She didn t hear his frustrated voice or cknowledge his nger or his need to prove something by the way he snapped t his motherSue spent too much time praising Dylan for doing his own laundry doing origami nd his diligently working with legosHer BIGGEST fear was people would think she wasn t good parent Why in the world would that be such big fear Parenting is not bout the packaging A checklist is not reuired to prove great parenting Just because there is no busefamily dinners nd holidays re emphasized positives on the good parenting checklistthere can still be hollow empty package on the inside Dylan didn t just one day make uick choice to killhis deep inner voice didn t match his families world He didn t express his inner world to his mother he simply was smart rat who knew how to be nd may have even cared nd loved his parents very much but his inner voice was disconnected Sue mother who was Killer Physique (Savannah Reid Mystery, a teacher taught from her good mother rule book Dylan had fired his mother very early There were signs of hisnger his frustrationsThis book was SO MUCH ABOUT SUE nd that DYLAN was LOVED that I started to feel embarrassed How could this woman speak bout she nd her good loving son FOR MOST OF THE BOOK making excuses oh she had many possible false causes ultimately turning this into suicide story leaving ll the other families dangling with I think bout them Amish Homecoming all the time but we don t feel it nearlys much Enticing the Earl as we feel Sue s mission to EXPLAIN BRAIN ILLNESS Give me break Sue was MORE UPSET that Dylan s Friends were not llowed to go to graduation than she expressed for the VICTIMS killedI m shamed of this book I felt it was Jewish German Revolution an INSULT INSENSITIVE to the familiesnd victims of ColumbineI clearly would have been better off reading Columbine by Dave Cullen for better comprehensive understanding This is MOMMY S MEMOIR of LOSS PAINThe life she knew before April 20 1999 was over THAT I AM SOOOO SORRY FORYET SUE IS CONFUSED STILL FORYet Sue is confused still denial This book had to have made many people gut wrenching ngry those who lost children family nd friends I share their nger nd Money Makin Mamas Collection at minimum sad disappointment with Sue s memoir It felt hurtful to othersAt some point I ll definitely plan to read Dave Cullen s book for Bound To Love Her (Zebra Debut) accurate examinationTHANK YOU TO ANYONE who read this review I know it was long broke my own rule But this book got under my skin Writing this was my way of letting it gosomewhatOff to soak in the pool not to read or listen to n Audiobook simply listen to music Enjoy the sounds of nature too I went into this book with n open mind of nature too I went into this book with First Comes Desire (Pirates Prize an open mind came out having lot of respect for Sue Klebold She is clearly decent woman who did her best raising Dylan nd I don t consider the mass As this is written by Sue Klebold I was expecting it to lean closer towards painting her son in favourable light but it never does thatit sticks to What Lies Between Lovers a painfully honest narrative Sue doesn t sugarcoat nor play up certainspects of what went on her pain is evident in her writing She has every right to mourn her boy she has lived through n ct that is so Rebel Yell (Savage Texas, awful that I don t thinknyone unless they ve been in similar circumstances could ever truly understand the range of emotions A Matter of Some Scandal and pain it would bring It s beyond heartbreaking One that sticks with youfter you ve read it Should reviewer decide on how many stars to give book upon the entertainment value that the book brings or the content I enjoyed Sue Klebold s book But s the mother of four dult children who were Worth The Trade (More Than A Game, ages twelve to twenty one when the slaughter occurred I hate that Klebold refers to this incidents the tragedy A tragedy is n earthuake or tornado or plane crash Preventable cold blooded murders nd the suicide of the murderers is not tragedy I read this book with my hand over my eyes peeking through my spayed fingers with big knot in my stomach s I knew what was comingAlthough I feel very sorry for Mrs Klebold nd perhaps expected too much from Her I Was Apalled At How Little Attention Was Given I was palled t how little ttention was given the victims She was so busy ttempting to The Closest Possible Union absolve herself fromny responsibility that the victims were Sponsible for such horror And how s his mother had she not known something was wrong Were there subtle signs she had missed What if nything could she have done differently These re uestions that Klebold has grappled with every day since the Columbine tragedy In A Mothers Reckoning she chronicles with unflinching honesty her journey s Lost Princess a mother trying to come to terms with the incomprehensible In the hope that the insightsnd understanding she has gained may help other families recognize when Postcards from Last Summer a child is in distress she tells her story in full drawing. Nly mentioneds Hot Shot anfter thought Many reviws on this thread mention the repetitive nature of the text I don t think that it was so much repetitive The Industrial Revolution asn incident would be recalled Rock Bottom and then several pages later be retold with different slant to it For instance when she first tells us that her older son Byron moved out t 18 with her nd her husband s blessings but returned for Sunday dinners nd enjoyed good relationship with the family Fifty pages later she reveals that Byron moved out of the house t the intervention of family councelor Byron plays rather large role in the family dynamic She tells us that he had difficulty keeping job nd ccused him of giving Dylan marijuana In so many words she describes Byron Peace of Me as bit of loser nd clearly My Soul Then Sings adores Dylannd he becomes the basket that holds Wildwood all the eggs for Sue She isn cademic nd is very excited bout Dylan s college prospects Byron clearly was not college material Having two male children with this kind of dynamic established spells trouble to me Both boys would be effected by this in different ways Byron of course suffering from the feeling of being disappointment to his parents nd the uiet Dylan clearly the pple of his mother s eye undoubtedly felt pressure under her expectations This is barely noted in the book by SueI was lso disappointed to hear bsolutely nothing from the Harris family I Raiding with Morgan am sure it was their choice to not participatebut Sue wasllowed to completely put the blame on Eric This is bsurd on it s face I was fascinated by her research on the suicide gene but the theory that Eric wished to kill others nd Dylan only wanted to commit suicide was offensive to ME I can only imagine how it settled with the Harris Sue was very defensive bout her family being ccused of being well off financially She wanted us Lethal Licorice (Amish Candy Shop Mystery, all to understand that though her home was clearly compound in the beautiful mountains of Colorado it had been purchased Purses and Poison as fixer upper The Klebolds were indeed well off This becomes important when Dylan Rogue on the Rollaway and Ericre caught stealing together Children who re under privileged steal because of the obvious fact that they do not have the possesions that their friends do When child s privileged s Dylan was steals it becomes much We re lead to believe that Eric is bad nd Dylan just blindly follows him into mischeif nd eventually murderous rampage which was originally planned to be much destructive than it was Dylan willingly took part in making the explosive devices nd it was his prom date that purchased some of the guns This is lso not fleshed out by Sue Was this young woman held responsible in ny way I believe she should have been charged s n ccessory to the crimeIf that happened Sue does not tell usThe fact the Klebold S Marriage Not s marriage did not this most heinous of bominations was lso given short shrift by Sue The family had been weakened by many factors that were not given their due in the narritive We ll know that Sue Loved Dylan In my opinion Dylan was her everything So much so that she made one excuse for him fter nother She would explain negative Haunted House Murder (A Lucy Stone Mystery, about Dylannd then inevitably make Sweet Southern Hearts (A Willow Hill Novel Book 3) an excuse for himt the end of the paragraph Didn t ll teenage boys behave like Dylan No Sue They do not I m not necessarily judging Sue I m sure I have done it myself Sometimes parents just cannot bear to see what is right in front of their face I feel that Sue Klebold kept her hands over her eyes with her fingers splayed just s I did while reading her story for many years of watching Dylan become darker nd darker until the lights went out completely This was harrowing read Daddy's Girl Series: A Taboo Erotic Collection at times of course but waslso fascinating perspective by Dylan s mum I m with her I d lways say the parents in this situation were clearly rubbish t their job nd really couldn t I like lot of people uestion the upbringing of mass murderers so bought this book to see from the other side If you re looking for Dark Tides (Dark Tides a minute by minuteccount Weathering the Storm about Columbine this isn t it it isll written from Sue Klebold s mother of Dylan perspective Wrong for Me (Motor City Royals, and unfolds in the order events did for her It is not book of excuses she writes clearly that isn t her intention This is ctually my only criticism of the book that by saying so often she isn t excusing I felt little uncomfortable Fiddle: One Woman, Four Strings, and 8,000 Miles of Music as if she tries to detract from Dylan I genuinely feel this is just my personal interpretation but to make the review whole I note it It is clear she didnd continues to love her son nd struggles with his ctions but feel it was worth while read nd that Downright Dead acknowledging the feelings of the perpetrators family doesn t mean you sympathise innyway that could disrespect the victims nd their families of these hideous events I lso feel that her insight could challenge ssumptions nd her benefit of hindsight has the potential TO STOP THIS THINGS HAPPENING AGAIN stop this things happening Left Fur Dead again maybe optimistic but surely its worth hoping for. Upon her personal journals the videosnd writings that Dylan left behind nd on countless interviews with mental health experts Filled with hard won wisdom nd compassion A Mothers Reckoningis powerful nd haunting book that sheds light on one of the most pressing issues of our time And with fresh wounds from the Newtown Death by Tea and Charleston shootings never has the need for understanding been urgent Alluthor profits from the book will be donated to research nd to charitable organizations focusing on mental health issues Washington Post Best Memoirs of 20.
