Don't waste your time on a thin, predictable plot involving characters that are unbelievable, and I don't mean unbelievable in a good way. I hung in there, hoping the book would redeem itself. No such luck. The "twist" at the end is so improbable that it's laughable. Gimme a break!
I picked this book because its premise intrigued me. While the moral of the story was mostly satisfying, getting to it took perserverance. The story dragged at points and it often seemed that the author strived too hard to be literary instead of focusing on writing a tight manuscript and telling a good story. This would have worked better as a short story rather than a novel. I did, however, like that the recording used two readers.
The intriguing and well-researched story of a very complex, disturbed woman. The author's bias is clear from the outset, despite her attempt to present both sides of the story, leaving little suspense in the end. Nonetheless, I mostly enjoyed it. The editing of this book makes the story a bit choppy, but a worthwhile listen overall.
