Absolute best. I love true story's. Ann rule out did herself with this one. I listened to it twice it was so good.
To see how intelligent women kept believing brads lies over and over again.
There is a movie and I had to buy it. Of course too much to put in a movie. Must read full version of book first.
Ann rules best work ever. Long but necessary to see true character and evil actions of the husband.
At first I wasn't sure if I liked the narrator, but the story is so engrossing I kept listening. It's amazing that one woman-hating psycho could get away with destroying lives of women for so many years. If you like true crime this is one for you.
I missed Laura Merlington.
I gasped a lot at this story. Unimaginable.
Yes, this was a great book. It was engrossing, kept me wanting to hear more. It was such a tragic story that kept you needing to hear the outcome of the man accused of the atrocious murder.
The plot definitely kept me on the edge of my seat; the accused seems to be quite crafty in regards to getting away with everything.
No, I have not but I look forward to such.
Say something about yourself!
Ann Rule did such a great job with this book - it was a captivating listen and I have listened to it more than once. How this guy could get 4 intelligent, successful, career-minded, educated, not to mention great mothers to their children to marry him and then proceed to run over them emotionally, mentally, FINANCIALLY and commit serious Parental Alienation with their children, is hard to believe - but he did. It was like a HUGE "Who The Bleep Did I Marry?" flashback! You must get this book!
Very good narrator. The story kept you wanting more. I did not want to stop listen to it. This is worth more than the credit I used. Ann Rule is a very good author.
Over the years I have read many Ann Rule books - some I have liked more than others. I think this one has been somehow lost in the shuffle. It is not as emotionally gripping as Small Sacrifices, but is super suspenseful. How did this happen? How could this happen? And how can justice come to pass?
This book seems to have been downplayed whenever anyone mentions Ann Rule, though I am not sure why. The hold that Brad Cunningham had over beautiful, successful - though obviously emotionally dependent - women is astounding. And yet....
Richard Ferone's narration of this was fantastic! I have read several of his novel narrations and have had a hard time with them, but he was pitch-perfect here.
If you like true crime with character study, this book is for you! Well, well worth the credit!
I absolutely would recommend this book. If you're a fan of true crime, you will enjoy it.
Over and over being bewildered at what an )@&*(# Brad Cunningham was to just about everyone around him, PARTICULARLY his wives and children. A classic psychopath.
Get a new voice? Seriously, the reading was well done, but I tired of his voice very quickly, which is a problem when you have to spend that amount of time listening to someone.
You do NOT want to marry this man!
Overall, I liked this book, finished it quickly, and was satisfied with the outcome.
Another fabulous read by Ann Rule. Thoroughly researched and expertly brought to life. But then this is par for the course for her books.
The narrator though, less than stellar performance. I nearly stopped listening only 15 minutes into the book. I found his gravelly voice and odd up and down inflections extremely distracting. I did get used to his voice and strange style of speech quickly though, thankfully so it wasn't a huge distraction throughout the entire book.
I do have to wonder why he felt the need to make all the female voices whiny throughout the entire story though. Does he not like women? Does he feel all they do is whine? Not impressed at all by his performance, but at least I was able to get used to his voice and not find it so much of a distraction that I was unable to finish the book. Still, his whiny impersonation of every female voice in the book left a bad impression and I'll likely avoid any other books he narrates.
Definitely at the top. One of the best audiobooks I've listened to, I found it hard to stop listening and when I wasn't listening, I was thinking about when I could turn it on again!
I don't know if I could pick just one! I would say that the one thing that stuck out for me was when the sons we talked about...it made me sad that they were being raised by a complete monster.
Sarah, she seemed to be such a strong character and then she would do something that left me thinking..."why would she DO that????". And then the responsibility she took at the end, amazing.
Yes if you want to know the details surrounding this case.
The depths in which one person full of hatred would go to strike back at another. Pure narcissist behavior unveiled.
I truly enjoyed the fact that his voice captured the essence of the characters and kept me interested through a very lengthy storyline. I enjoyed hm so much so that I searched for all the books he had narrated and will be listening to more from him.
A Case of Sheer Betrayal
Although the book is long....I was captivated by the story and I was saddened by the fact that the police seemingly could not do anything to stop him.
