    Story
    "Made me feel like I was there..."
    If you could sum up The Jonestown Death Tape (FBI No. Q 042) (November 18, 1978) in three words, what would they be?

    Sad. Frightening. Betrayal.


    What other book might you compare The Jonestown Death Tape (FBI No. Q 042) (November 18, 1978) to and why?

    A Thousand Lives


    What does the narrator bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Hearing Jim Jones, his actual voice, for the first time, sent chills up my back-- a bit like I imagine hearing Hitler's voice might feel...


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It made me deeply sad. The background 'noises' especially the babies crying, was heart breaking. It accomplished the impossible,as it made me feel that I was actually there, experiencing the heat of the jungle, the oppression, the hunger...


    Any additional comments?

    I didn't know what to expect, I must say that the quality was almost unbelievably good! From a 32 year old tape--- incredible!
