Was surprised by the depth here. We are told of the siege of Lenengrad in heartbreaking detail, much of which I'm ashamed to say I was ignorant of. Sad, story but is uplifting too as each character works out their life and family dynamics. Only a talented author like Kristin Hannah can pull this off. Loved this book and do enjoy this author. Great narration, the accents done are super. This book caused me to read up on the siege of Lenengrad, a sign of a good book indeed.
A unique, twisted tale that will keep you on the edge of your seat.
This novel quickly goes through some of the worst serial killer couples in history. If you can get past the terrible narration, it is an average read. If you find serial killers intriguing and if a fuzzy, badly edited narrator does not bother you, this book is for you.
This novel depicts a terrible event in one man's life but it is less a true crime novel than one man's spiritual journey. I would place it in Christianity, not true crime. It was interesting but extremely repetitive. Maurice England portrayed such emotion through the characters in this novel, he is a fabulous narrator.
If you do not like to hear about spiritual awakening, or Bible quotes this book is not for you.
Super book. Funny, engaging, entertaining, well written and very well narrated. Some have commented on poorly done American accents, the American accents are only at the beginning and very end of the book, too minuet to bother! Best book I've chosen in a long time! Great author and narrator.
I have not read a book such as this before. The author shows us each character in such depth. Fabulously written, good narration. A strong novel I would recommend.
What a different book. Often I was wondering what was really going on in this book, made me think and try to figure out what had happened . Hard to put this book down, really enjoyed it. If you like creepy/mystery/thriller type books this one is worth a listen. Great easy to listen to narration. I would definitely read another book by Michel Faber, great imagination and well written.
Jane Velez-Mitchell may not be my pick as a TV journalist, but she writes an amazing nonfiction book. The author represents both parties fairly, new details I had not heard following the trial were very compelling. If you were intrigued by the Jodi Arias trial, you will enjoy this read. Still sends shivers down my spine...
Wonderful read with intriguing mysteries. I made myself wait to listen so this book would last longer or I would have listened to it start to finish. I would not change a thing about this book, it leaves you thinking, wondering about the characters, and the narration is fabulous, great character voices and accents.
I should have liked this book, I love true crime. There just wasn't enough detail to surround myself in each case, the conclusion was there before I had gotten interested. You have to listen very carefully every second or you will miss something important, if you can do this you may find this book to your liking.
Wow! Great read. The characters were so well rounded, interesting and well put together. This story is not a common one, high morals set within a brothel. This author has the ability to take ordinary words and weave them into something beautiful. The narrator was so amazing. Not only changing her voice for different characters, but becoming the character. Super listen.
