I loved this book; the story is fantastic. It is mainly about 2 maids in the south in the 1960's, and the mood and voice really speaks. The reader gets a historical account, and a scary, yet oddly uplifting story at the same time. Narrators are great!
This book was in Time, and Newsweek, and the NYT, and maybe my expectations were high, but I was bored, and I am not easily bored. The story with the oh-so-quick delivery just irritated me. I also give myself one star on my choice.
I loved this book; it was so well written and so interesting. Even if I did not know who it was modeled after, the story would have been interesting anyway. I was very impressed and it was nice to make a good choice. The narrator was great too.
The story took too long to get into, and I kept going back reading reviews after 2-3 hours as to why I should love this book. I didn't.
I am not a Bosch fan, but I like the Lincoln Lawyer, so with that plot plus great reading, I enjoyed the book.
The exploration of the inuit was fascinating, even if a little too graphic (guts and all) at times, but I really liked this and I don't often read this type of material. Worth every penny and makes up for the book "so called picked by audible experts list" where a book or choice is too often wasted.
This book is depressing even for a crime thriller, the main character just went thud for me despite Scott Brick (and I usually like Brick a lot) and his OVER-narration; he just goes way too far here, it is performance art gone crazy. Unless you love the writer, and even if you do, THINK TWICE.
Unfortunately, the descriptions of this book are very false. It was a waste of a credit and I regret it.
One star is stretching it
Don't buy it
