The question is to know that your child can do no wrong but has done some irreversible harm like murder. Does he have the murder gene?
I used to whistle while I worked. Now I read a book!
I don't know if I could listen again. It was a wonderful book. But, it really cut me deep. As a mother I could really empathize with the wife.
There were so many, I don't know if I could choose just one. I think the one moment that got to me, was when the family takes the trip. The author lulls you into thinking that , perhaps, everything I'll turn out OK for this family. And then....Wow.
Definitely Andy. Here was a man who had to carry this devastating family secret. He lives in denial all the while trying to defend his son that's been accused of murder. You can just feel his tension.
Once again, Andy. Though the convicted Grandfather is a compelling character, as well.
Read this book. It really stays with you. As a parent, it had me thinking "What would I do in these people's shoes?"
I loved this audio book. The book was easy to follow and i was very surprised by the ending. I highly recomend this novel!
Audible started me reading fiction again. What a treat to have professional actors narrating a book I may not have had the time to "read".
Excellent writing. Fascinating story that will keep you riveted all the way to the end. Kudos to Grover Gardner,a marvelous narrator. A novel not to be missed!
Couldn't stop listening
This was my first experiencing listening in lieu of reading. I was mesmerized and couldn't stop listening. I am a lawyer and found the legal aspects to be very realistic, which is important. The story was wonderful, exciting and moving. The narrator was excellent. A great listen.
Very good 'read' that will not soon leave you. There were occasional times when the timeline was hard to follow, but they were written to where you soon caught on. Intriguing variation on the nature v.s. nurture debate with an ironic ending. The characters are rich and there are laugh out loud moments with contemporary dialog. You can feel this family reach into their socks for the courage to get through the grocery store. Excellent story & performance - I highly recommend this book.
Having just finished the book, I'm still reeling. The last hour was totally unexpected. It is definitely worth the time to listen.
I'd definitely listen to it again. I enjoyed the interesting, unique story. It was well-written, and well-read.
the end is very memorable and surprising.
Gardner performed every character well. He gave each person his own, distinctive voice. Captivating.
The main character's last comments were really heart-wrenching and profound. There were similar moments throughout the book.
This was so unexpected!! Excellent read!
I'm not sure about this.
Much more drama!
It made me gasp!
This book was so good I couldn't stop listening to it, the author and narrator were perfectly in sync.
