Texan raised Canadian born with 3 wonderful kiddos and an awesome husband of 27 years. Reading (listening) is my passion.
Way better than the movie. Loved the narration. Especially Libbey. I thought the reader really brought out her character.
This book is heartbreaking and haunting. This one tops her later, more famous book. I developed a connection to the characters and was sorry to have it end.
The performances were excellent.
these people are not always likable and it is genius of the author to make the reader/listener squeamish at their own distaste and lack of sympathy for a down and out family.
No, but only because I never read a book twice - especially those of this genre. Once the secrets are learned the suspense is gone.
Yes - I wanted to know if Ben really was the killer. There were so many players involved, so many characters. And one huge theme throughout the book - people lie; what's said isn't always what's so.
If I said, I would be giving too much away.
There is a film, isn't there? My tagline would borrow from the X-Files: "The truth is out there."
This was truly a great book. You get complex characters, a story told from different points of view, and mysterious events surrounding a crime. If you've read Gone Girl and are looking for something just like it, then this isn't it - this is in a category of its own.
There is some love, hate, bad relationships, death and a lot of mystery
The description of how the murders took pace
When Libby talks to her brother. I just want to shake him
Rebecca Lowman is a fantastic narrrator. The book is well-paced and vivid. Recommended for crime drama fans.
