Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Diana | 2/14/2014

    " I started this book having only heard about Bonnie and Clyde. I walked away with a better understanding of how they were products of their times, and how our own lives today are what they are in part because of the impact of this young celebrity criminal couple. This balanced and well-researched book is fascinating. The audiobook version is well-read. Highly recommended. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tamara | 2/13/2014

    " I've learned not only quite a bit about Bonnie and Clyde, but also about the time and area. Quite interesting! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dad | 2/10/2014

    " Learned a lot about their early life, life in the depression era, and B.&C.'s family. Lot of action and a lot more! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alison Williams | 2/7/2014

    " This is a very good read. Compelling. Timely. Desperately poor people who would rather die than keep on being poor. Good history of Dallas, Tx. also. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 David | 2/1/2014

    " Hey, Bonnie and Clyde were small-time bandits who broke into gumball machines to score enough change for sandwiches. The author tells the story pretty straight, and doesn't leave out any of the embarrassing details of their bad luck and poor planning. Book also has a lot in it about the bad times in Depression/Dustbowl Dallas and how bumbly yet vicious law enforcement was in this era, not to mention the inhumanity of Texas' prisons. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Susan MO | 1/31/2014

    " This book reads like a novel and I thoroughly enjoyed it!!!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 George Huner | 1/22/2014

    " I loved the detail in this book that described life in the depression era south. Tough, difficult, and brutal at times. The story about the tow truck that was towing Bonnie and Clyde's car back into town after they had been ambushed, with their bodies still in the car, breaking down in front of the school, with the kids running out of school to check it out is not something you would expect to see today. The stories about the robberies gone bad, when everyone who owned a gun came out shooting, and hitting everything but Bonnie and Clyde. Something to think about. The low tech communications between police departments that allowed Bonnie and Clyde to escape too many close calls. A very interesting read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Susan | 1/14/2014

    " So far, very interesting and informative. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Allison | 1/7/2014

    " One of the best books I've read all year! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Danielle | 12/23/2013

    " While I haven't read any other books about the story of Bonnie and Clyde, this one seems to be one of the few that attempts to tell the whole story while leaving out the untruths and over-exaggerations of the papers from that time and since then. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mark Johnson | 12/8/2013

    " Love hurts. So does poverty. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shannon B | 11/26/2013

    " A brilliant look into the lives of Bonnie and Clyde, taking you to times before they were criminals on the run and as well as the time they were shooting, killing, and robbing. A fascinating read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mary | 10/13/2013

    " Fascinating and extremely well researched. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brentley | 9/19/2013

    " This one took some time to get through, but only because it was so thoroughly researched and so full of details. REALLY interesting read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Trisha | 12/23/2012

    " Awesome book! He did a great job pulling you in without having to embellish the truth. I love non-fiction books because I think they can stand on their own feet. This book proves me right! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gary Peterson | 11/11/2012

    " This book was awesome great look into our past and the creation of criminals during the hard time of the depression. No glits or Holly Wood Glammer just how it was. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joe Faust | 10/2/2012

    " Excellent history of the Barrow Gang that separates myths and legends from the reality. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marc94 | 3/29/2012

    " A pretty well writen, detailed account of the story of Bonnie and Clye. It dispels the myths and legends common about them and one could even say that it their existence was quite tough. Overall, it's worth reading. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Doug Dirks | 11/9/2011

    " Far from being the master criminals popular mythology makes them out to be, Clyde and Bonnie were really just a couple of hapless kids with no prospects. The book is a bit repetitive and the writing is unspectacular, but it kept me reading until the end. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cary Lackey | 9/19/2011

    " Very entertainingly (is that a word?) written book. Hard to put down and a very quick read. The author competently fleshed out the backgrounds and exploits of Bonnie & Clyde beyond what most folks probably believe they know about the duo. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Patrick | 9/6/2011

    " Great read - tremendous detail. The author has done his homework. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Laura | 8/2/2011

    " It's ridiculous what those two got up to. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Elpheaba | 7/31/2011

    " Really enjoyed this book. It debunks all the myths around Bonnie and Clyde and gives you a glimpse into their reality. Especially good and also heartbreaking, the viewpoint of their respective mothers. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kent Horner | 4/15/2011

    " I liked Jeff Guinn's book The Last Gunfight better than this one but it was interesting non the less. Bonnie and Clyde were a lot more desperate than Warren Beaty and Faye Dunaway portrayed them to be. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Katie | 4/13/2011

    " Not my typical read - not really into "true crime." But I was babysitting, the baby was sleeping and the book was on the shelf. Very interesting story - compelling people and a well-told yarn. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marla | 4/11/2011

    " I really enjoyed reading this book. I did not realize how young they were and their background. I also read a book at Dillinger just before this one-who was involved in robbing banks as well. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Liz | 1/15/2011

    " This gave a lot of details I had never heard about Bonnie and Clyde. I have never seen the movie and what I had heard about them was mainly just legend. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tara | 11/21/2010

    " I was in the mood for some "real life" story...and I realized there wasn't anyone I cared to know about. Then I saw this...:)
    The story of two lives strongly influenced by circumstances, bad judgement, and mainly, the power of the media.
    I really enjoyed it.

    "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Denise | 10/8/2010

    " I came to understand what can drive people to crime through this book. I'm not justifying what the "Barrow gang" did but I understand how they were very much a product of their time and place. Though nonfiction I enjoyed this as much as a fictional novel. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jj | 9/25/2010

    " An interesting history of high profile gangsters in a short, but bright, burst of fame. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kristen | 8/19/2010

    " I learned a lot about Bonnie and Clyde in this book. "
