I loved this book, if one can say loved about a story told strictly from the viewpoint of a tragic yet sometimes unsympathetic character such as Eva, the mother of Kevin. I wish I had listened to the book prior to seeing the movie; the twists of plot would have been that much more unexpected. However, I was thrilled to learn there was a book behind the movie that so disturbed me that I could not put it out of my mind; it continued to roil and simmer alternatively. I highly recommend the audiobook; the narration was excellent. After you have digested this multidimensional work, definitely rent the movie and enjoy the tour-de-force that is Tilda Swinton as Eva. I look forward to exploring additional works by Lionel Shriver, a most perceptive and courageous writer to have undertaken a story such as this.
