Susan Atkins, late of the Charles Manson family, writes her story.

I read this when I was waaaaaay too young. It's an account by Susan Atkins (and a co-author) about her life as part of Charles Manson's infamous group. It's a pretty gripping account, but it's not for the squeamish, as some of the details are pretty gritty. I think I was about ten or eleven when I first read this. I had nightmares for quite a while. =(

Good Book. But, I do not believe this woman was ever sorry for what she did. The book plainly tells that in the beginning. All convicts at some point , find God, usually hoping to be released. Since this book was written in '77 , I wonder if Ms. Atkins still has the "Spirit of God"? Seeing that she is still in prison & the latest photo of her that I seen was an old prison con with a busted lip? I do hope she was sincere, but, in my experiences with cons, 80% usually are just about to come up for parole. Sad, but true. Remember when she LAUGHED at the family of Ms. Folger & Mrs Tate/Polanski???? It is still hard for me to feel sorry for a woman who stabbed a beautiful , pregnant actress & THEN LAUGHED AT HER FAMILY IN COURT!!!! Brainwashed by Manson?? I doubt it. Remember the children of Mr. & Mrs. LaBianca???? Mr LaBianca with a FORK in his throat?? Gary Hinman , a homosexual peaceful hippy???? Stabbed & tortured for 3 DAYS????? By THE VERY PEOPLE HE THOUGHT WERE HIS FRIENDS?
Read it & decide for yourself. But, I was Not impressed with her attitude or her salvation. I am not the Judge. "Judge not , lest you be judged". I just didn't think she was sincere.
