Passages from In Cold Blood
“The local accent is barbed with a prairie twang, a ranch-hand nasalness, and the men, many of them, wear narrow frontier trousers, Stetsons and high-heeled boots with pointed toes.” (p. 3)
I chose this passage because I like how the author goes into great detail about everything that he talks about. It helps me picture things better and it makes the book a little bit more interesting to read.
“…Mr. Clutter had of necesity learned to cook…” (p. 9)
Mr. Clutter, being the man of the house, felt like he needed to learn how to cook because of his wife’s health condition and his older daughters had already moved out. The youngest daughter Nancy would also help him cook the meals for the day.
