i used this book to entertain myself on multiple bus/mrt trips. seriously...this zodiac guy is messed up.
My favourite movie of 2007 was "Zodiac" directed by David Fincher. Adapted from the book by Robert Graysmith, the film does not offer much blood and gory, but is chilling and scary as hell. My friend didn't like the film because he had read the book before and found the book much better.
First published in 1986, "Zodiac" is a detailed account of the investigation of the murders by a serial killer, Zodiac, who terrorised the San Francisco Bay Area in the late 1960s. Graysmith was the political cartoonist of the San Francisco Chronicle to which Zodiac wrote a number of coded letters to boast about his heinous crimes and taunt the police.
Graysmith did his own investigation and followed the leads to a number of suspects, finally nailing down one whom he believed was Zodiac.
Like the movie, the protagonist of "Zodiac" is not the killer, but the dogged perseverance and courage of Graysmith to track down Zodiac and seek justice for the victims.
Meticulously researched with lots of first-hand information including a complete reproduction of the Zodiac letters, the book is a showcase of exemplary true crime writing and first-class investigative reporting.
P.S. Thanks to A for introducing this great read to me. You're right: the movie is no match for the book....Continua
