Death row is a sad and lonely place. In the face of death, one always wonders what really happened,and is the truth enough to justify the taking of a life. This books tackles these ideas without judgment or pontification. It is a gripping page turner with characters you love (some in spite of yourself). The narraters are perfect, and I can't reccomend this book highly enough. It is a perfectly paced story that I would read again (a rarity). I want more by this author.
Noa P and the language , great character development
Love the voices the cadence everything
A good story well written.
I didn't mind her performance. It was not her fault.
They were stuck with the material.
boredom and annoyance
One of the best written books I have listened to lately. Well thought out plot with lots of unique ways to look at the hard topic of the death penalty all in a captivating and clever fiction.
Noa is the very cynical main protagonist. If I have one complaint about this book that it’s a downer. Not a single upbeat in the entire book. I don’t know how you would write a death row novel that wouldn’t be. Noa has been sitting on death row ten years when the story opens. The remainder of the book gets the author up to date on Noa’s history and moves on to where she goes from here. Wow. The reader gets the back story before the trial. The trial of Noa is so resilient of the some recent death trials involving female lovers and mothers, but from all angles. For all the information that I thought was important to the case was not revealed in the light I thought would give be the best conclusion.
The story allows the reader to make their own conclusion though it’s extremely thought provoking. I will be thinking about this book for a long time and listening more dubiously to those television trials.
