    One thought on “Squeaky: The Life and Times of Lynette Alice Fromme”

    1. I ve always thought you have to take anything thats been written about the so called Manson family , whether pro or anti Manson, with a huge grain of salt This book requires less salt than anything I ve read pertaining to the Manson family to date.The author paints a very sympathetic picture of Fromme I think the angle he is getting at is Manson was able to influence Fromme because she was looking for a Father figure type because her dad was emotionally abusive, neglectful and he strongly implie [...]

    2. If there were an option for 3 1 2 stars, that would be perfect First of all, if you re not a Manson Family buff and yes, I know that sounds strange, but there are many of us who continue to find this the ultimate in true crime stories , this book isn t for you It s very slow at first going through Lynnette Fromme s childhood Definitely a better editor would have shortened this section which is important as it emphasizes her seemingly normal childhood and early teens However, once we get into the [...]

    3. This is a very comprehensive book on the life of Lynette Squeaky Fromme What I really liked was reading her life in the context of the late 60s and early 70s Meeting Manson, the Vietnam War, her hate of Nixon and love for the environment and the trees is all clearly emphasized In fact, it appears that Squeaky was one of the first eco terrorists , ready to kill to save the trees.She was an extremely intelligent and well spoken woman During the trial, she argued for herself like a lawyer She most [...]

    4. I was glad to come across this book, and for the most part, it held my interest There were parts that got repetitive or gave detail than the material seemed to justify I don t like an author telling me what to think about their subject, but at times I wish he d taken a little of a stand The biggest example is one of the big questions did Fromme have any real intention of shooting Ford that day The short answer is that we will never really know, but I wish the guy who spent a lot of time resear [...]

    5. This is a very enjoyable and well researched biography.It is very thorough and so may not be as enjoyable to people with only a passing interest in The Family There is not much new reported about The Family, but the writing is good enough that you don t mind that you are treading familiar ground on the roughly 100 pages that deal with those years of Lynnette Fromme s life The other 300 pages provide a lot of insight into her youth and upbringing and her activities post 1970 Highly recommended fo [...]

    6. come to think of it, i never did finish this book as soon as sqeaky and accomplice i forgot her name were actually put in jail i got bored and started another book jesus my reviews are fascinating.

    7. This is really a 2 1 2 star book I don t recommend it I came to the sad realization after reading it that Lynette Fromme didn t really deserve to have a book written about her.

    8. Text removed because it was a huge pile of embarrassing Livejournaly feelings ramble, only tangentially related to the book under review, which may have been appropriate when this account was just a dumping ground for my miscellaneous personal wankery but is less so now that I m trying to use the site as it was intended Anyway, this is a good book, and I do recommend it to anyone who, like me, is fascinated by cults and the confusing ways they make us feel given our culturally instilled attitude [...]

    9. This was a long one but I really enjoyed it, and I would add it to the pile of better Manson Family related books Some of the parts with the Ford trial were a bit slow, but other than that it kept me pretty well enraptured However, I still feel like there s quite a few pieces missing about Squeaky that complete a full picture A complicated subject, indeed.

    10. I was cast as Squeaky Fromme in the musical Assassins, and I picked this book up along with lots of other sources so that I could study her and imitate as much of her being as possible without knowing her I enjoyed the read.

    11. Definitely impartial than Bugliosi s book but I actually couldn t finish this one I left it with about 50 pages to go Let s just say that Gerald Ford is of an insignificant footnote in history than even Manson and Squeaky.

    12. Most of this book deals with Ms Fromme s trial subsequent prison time for her assassination attempt on President Gerald Ford.
