Wow What a fantastic read So glad that I did love this book The way it is written, how the suspension in the book gets higher and higher for us readers love it Highly recommend and not only for true crime readers.It reads like fiction.Could not put it down. I have to admit that the cover that is on the Kindle version really threw me off I m not really a judge a book by the cover kind of person, but this one is bad and it almost made me not purchase it Once it was in my Kindle library, it still sat there for awhile, me not being able to press the button on it because of that Maybe it s just me This was a good book It was really interesting to see just how crazy he went, how he twisted what she said into what he wanted to hear and how sh I have to admit that the cover that is on the Kindle version really threw me off I m not really a judge a

because of that Maybe it s just me This was a good book It was really interesting to see just how crazy he went, how he twisted what she said into what he wanted to hear and how she hated the attention, but at the same time missed it To know that it was a real thing was even crazier, that no one could help her or stop him I definitely recommend this book if you are interested in real life events, but I warn you that the first chapter is a little slow It does pick up I promise At the end the last 75% , I had a problem putting it down and ended up staying awake until around 1 in the morning to finish the book I just wish the story had continued and we could see what happened after the murder I was extremely interested in this book since I was hanging out at the Berkeley campus around the time the events happened and was a student at Berkeley shortly afterwards I loved the book and read it without stopping, front to back, in one day The writing is excellent and I think the portrayal of the characters is extremely realistic Basically, I loved everything about this book.There are a few very minor inaccuracies in the text For instance, in one place it says that People s Park is at t I was extremely interested in this book since I was hanging out at the Berkeley campus around the time the events happened and was a student at Berkeley shortly afterwards I loved the

book.There are a few very minor inaccuracies in the text For instance, in one place it says that People s Park is at the corner of Haste and Dwight Those streets are parallel to each other, so there is no such corner, but People s Park lies between them In another place it mentions that some of the characters are walking through a soccer field next to I House Next to I House is the football stadium which you cannot walk through , not a soccer field, though there are soccer fields a couple blocks away These are minor things that don t detract from the very wonderful story, but surprised me that the author, who was a Berkeley student also, included in the book.I highly recommend this book, even if you were not there at the time It is a fascinating insight into obsession ABSOLUTELY

India born incarnation of Somerset Maugham s protagonist, Philip Carey, Of Human Bondage Only Prosenjit Poddar is, very sadly, a real person So, tragically, was Tanya Tarasoff.Recommendation This was one of the best, and best written, true crime stories I ve ever read If you ve read and liked anything by Ann Rule, or were moved to any degree by reading Of Human Bondage, you will enjoy Bad Karma.Antheneum, New York, 1986 Hardcover edition, 311 pages I stumbled onto this book by accident, through a Facebook Group, and I am glad of it The story is riveting and disturbing and while I m typically not a reader of true crime, I found this one impossible to put down The cultural gap between the young Indian murderer and his troubled teenaged victim is the real heart of this tragedy I wish the author had provideddetail on the psychiatric and legal battles, but that s carping Recommended. Written like a novel but actually the case that broke open patient confidentiality in regards to others being threatened I liked that most of the book focused on their relationship rather than the actual crime, which is merely the last 10 pages I am sympathetic to the murderer, however, as I think he was a driven to attack his obsession though he REALLY should ve been involuntarily committed before it occurred Great ripping true crime read that I burned through in two days, so highly recomm Written like a novel but actually the case that broke open patient confidentiality in regards to others being threatened I liked that most of the book focused on their relationship rather than the actual crime, which is merely the last 10 pages I am sympathetic to the murderer, however, as I think he was a driven to attack his obsession though he REALLY should ve been involuntarily committed before it occurred Great ripping true crime read that I burned through in two days, so highly recommended haunting is the word that comes to mind about this book Tarasoff v Regents of the University of California is the resulting suit from this murder the decision changed things not only in CA but the rest of the US Protective privilege ends where public peril begins. This book is a reprint of a book which was first published in 1969 I read it on my Kindle Fire The book takes places UC Berkeley during the time the student rebellions were going on during the Vietnam War The primary characters are and Untouchable Indian student, Prosenjit Poddar, and an American girl of Russian descent, Tanya Tarasoff In 1949, Mahatma Gandhi made great strides toward ending the caste system in India however, a culture always takes quite awhile to catch up to its ideals This book is a reprint of a book which was first published in 1969 I read it on my Kindle Fire The book takes places UC Berkeley during the time the student rebellions were going on during the Vietnam War The primary characters are and Untouchable Indian student, Prosenjit Poddar, and an American girl of Russian descent, Tanya Tarasoff In 1949, Mahatma Gandhi made great strides toward ending the caste system in India however, a culture always takes quite awhile to catch up to its ideals When Mr Poddar met Ms Tarasoff at a dance in Berkeley, he fancied himself in love with her and also fantasized that she was in love with him She most definitely was not in fact, she being the daughter of a raging alcoholic father,would never have fallen in love with a passive man like Mr Poddar Mr Poddar became obsessed with Ms Tarasoff and had a sari made for her in the hopes of the two marrying The situation got so bad that Mr Poddar had to go see a psychiatrist since be began failing all of his classes and became fixated on the idea of killing Ms Tarasoff while she was vacationing in Brazil during summer vacation It is my opinion that people from foreign lands saw the USA as the land of opportunity, and thus Mr Poddar saw Ms Tarasoff as a symbol for his hopes and dreams in the land of opportunity When she basically rejected him, the store becomes not only alarming, but obsessive This is the kind of thing that happens when cultures are in flux A very interesting and thought provoking book {Free Pdf} ë Bad Karma: A True Story Of Obsession And Murder â Prosenjit Poddar was the brilliant engineering student who wanted nothing than to return to his native India a big success and to marry a woman of his parents choosingTanya Tarasoff was the na ve coed who just wanted somebody to loveAnd Larry More was the young psychologist who thought he recognized the warning signs that his patient was not just suffering from a jilted love affair but was about to commit an act of murderIn a culture clash that pits the traditional values of male dominated India against free love attitudes of Berkeley in the s, an impending tragedy unfolds Soon Larry Moore finds himself face to face with the biggest dilemma of his career What does a doctor do if he perceives his patient as mentally unstable and a threat to the well being of another but is bound by the oath of doctor patient confidentiality not to warn the police This true story tracks Moore s race against time to stop the inevitableD KARMA is than an anatomy of madness it is also a chronicle of the events that would culminate in a landmark decision handed down by the California Supreme Court Known simply as Tarasoff, thisruling would change the oath of confidentially between therapist and patient, and establish the rule that a mental health professional has the legal duty to protect a threatened individual This was an interesting story based on a real occurrence of murder back in the late 60 s No doubt the facts are all accounted and presented but there was a lot of conjecture as to how and why it all went down It was laid out well though and was understandable how it ultimately ended in a tragedy of murder and how it all came to be because of a clash of cultures and morals.I personally would have liked a bitat the end the actual facts of the case and how it changed the face of t This was an interesting story based on a real occurrence of murder back in the late 60 s No doubt the facts are all accounted and presented but there was a lot of conjecture as to how and why it all went down It was laid out well though and was understandable how it ultimately ended in a tragedy of murder and how it all came to be because of a clash of cultures and morals.I personally would have liked a bitat the end the actual facts of the case and how it changed the face of the law in these cases, instead of the little blurb that was given If it was as well researched as indicated then it would have been nice to see it The story is fine but it really is just a story with an awful lot of it presumed by the author I don t doubt the sincerity of the nature of the characters presented but I found I was sometimes uncomfortable with all the conversations that took place or internal dialogue that happens that no one would have known, or could have known I was glad to have the added feature of the pictures so you could get a feel for the main people involved in the case and it s circumstances All in all, it was a tragedy in a tumultuous time
