Michael C Hall's adaptation of the narrator was outstanding, but Holly is a close second. He really makes you feel like you know them
Incredibly easy to listen straight through with no break
It was a compelling story with an unreliable narrator, told over multiple points of view at different time points. It was a little confusing to try to keep track of the different dates while listening, but easy enough to figure it out. I listened to it on my daily commute on the train and that made it fun to relate to. The narration was a little boring but I still finished it happily
Probably not - there was too much focus on developing an uninteresting protagonist and not enough on the plot. This was ironic given that he dedicated the book to someone and thanked them for telling him to focus more on Carp (the protagonist). I guess it's what some people like, but wasn't nearly enough to keep me interested. I made it halfway thought before I gave up.
The narration was ok, but he might as well have been reading the nutrition facts on a box of raisin bran.
The POV of the wife was a great angle for the story and was enhanced by the, at first annoying but eventually perfect, narration.
Pretty funny memoir
I enjoyed the book but found myself surprisingly annoyed by Amy Poehler's narration/opinions by the end. Was still good enough that I read it quickly though
I was pleasantly surprised by the unfolding of the story and quickly realized why this is one of the quintessential murder mysteries
10 guests. 1 remote island. 1 murderer.
A great combination of a narrator that makes a good story come alive. Seems like a cousin of a Gillian Flynn novel
I listened to an hour and honestly couldn't tell you a single thing that happened. The narration was terrible and the plot was all over
Disappointment. This book got great reviews and I was excited to listen
Yes! The short stories are simply hilarious
My favorite short story was a satirical fake comedy routine with a play on words with "SOY MILK" and "I AM MILK" - you had to be there I guess
Paul Allen, of course.
I loved the transient counterpoint between the psychopathic thoughts and the minutia of his daily routine
As an avid fan of Scrubs, I loved seeing all the references that Scrubs used from this book!
A blend of satire, realism, and comedy - a must win!
