This was the best audiobook I've listened to in ages. The narration was perfect -- I really felt like the two characters were actually telling their stories (book is written in first person). The plot just kept getting better and more compelling. The author is a wonderful writer -- I'm surprised I haven't discovered her before. The plot, the writing, the narration, all of it added up to a delightful read. I cannot recommend this title highly enough.
By the way, this is the first time I've felt compelled to write a review.
The characters in this book really came to life. I don't know if it was Galbraith's (really J.K. Rowling's) terrific dialogue, or Glenister's facility with different accents and voices, but the characters were so distinct and believable!
I also liked the plot quite a bit. I'm a sucker for a good mystery, a down-and-out gumshoe who makes good, and anything British. So, this novel was the perfect listen for me, as it had all three.
This book was very well researched and written. I didn't know all that much about the Columbine shooting before I began, and it turns out that much of what the public was told by the media was simply incorrect. The author did a great job of really going in depth about both the victims and the shooters. Terrific listen.
