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.
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.
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
