I cannot understand the reviews of others of this book, I was enchanted and bespelled by this perfectly bizarre story, when I don't have any new books on my Ipod, and I find myself on a plane or something, this is my go to audiobook, I can listen to the story, and the fantastic narrator over and over again. Definitely download this book!
I was a little uncomfortable throughout the whole book, and sadly reminded of my 21 year old pet who died in my arms last year. Ms. Roach steers clear of "death" throughout most of the book, but it's always lurking in the background. However, I think next time I am in the presence of the corpse of a loved one, I will feel a larger separation between them, and the cadaver in front of me.
The author really takes the topic on fearlessly on all our behalves, absolutely worth the credits.
I didn't feel ready to diagnose someone as a sociopath after finishing this book, but I did take some great messages about taking care of myself away with me. Whether it was the authors intention or not, by telling the stories of the victims of sociopaths she made me feel better about some of the bridges I've burned in my life. Because I have a conscience, there are some people I still felt bad about ejecting from my world, but Ms. Stout is right, after 3 lies, run!
So good, thank-you.
yes, there's no Gretchen in this book, but I didn't mind, we spend the whole book with Susan and Archie and got to know them better. I felt like the author used this novel to set-up some new stories for our beloved characters down the road, which I am looking forward to. I missed the previous narrator for all of 5min, yes she was great, but Christina Delaine made it her own. I will be keeping my eye out for the next installment, here's hoping there is one!
