    Story

    In an eloquent, mesmerizing voice, Mikal Gilmore weaves us through generations of his family's history to uncover the sources that led Gary Gilmore to murder, and the crippling aftermath of Gary's deed on his family. A vital and deeply American story, Shot in the Heart raises many compelling issues of concern in a country that grows ever more violent.

    Lisa says: "too bad it's abridged"
    "Affected writing and production"
    Overall

    The story, although dark and troubling, is moving. The writing is a bit affected -- the author tries too hard to be expressive and insightful. The same over-effort can be seen in the production as well. The narrators?f whispery voice is too dramatic and the musical interludes remind me more of Public Radio's Mystery Theater than a narrated book. The overall effect is the feeling of someone trying to manipulate the listener?fs emotions. This is a book that I would recommend, but it could be much better if the author and producers didn't try so hard for the dramatic and theatrical.
