    Every mother's worst fear became Sharon Rocha's reality. On Christmas Eve 2002, she received a phone call from her son-in-law saying that her daughter, Laci, was missing. In the hours, days, and eventually months that followed, Sharon struggled to avoid accepting what no parent should ever have to face: the certain knowledge that her child is never coming home.

    Prosecuting attorney in the Manson trial Vincent Bugliosi held a unique insider's position in one of the most baffling and horrifying cases of the 20th century: the cold-blooded Tate-LaBianca murders carried out by Charles Manson and four of his followers. What motivated Manson in his seemingly mindless selection of victims, and what was his hold over the young women who obeyed his orders? Now available for the first time in unabridged audio, the gripping story of this famous and haunting crime is brought to life by acclaimed narrator Scott Brick.

    Larry says: "What a great book."
    "Good Book, but very long."

    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Would you listen to The Meaning of Matthew again? Why?

    I would listen to this book again and again. I found this story very sad, but the only way to change past mistakes is to find where we went wrong.


    What other book might you compare The Meaning of Matthew to and why?

    sadly to many.


    What three words best describe Judy Shepard’s voice?

    dry


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    there is a movie about this story already. After reading the book its not the same as the movie. The movies are hardly ever same as the book.

    I really liked this book, I know ill be listening to it more than once.

    I liked how he told his story. He made it seem as if he was in the same room talking to you.

    Laci Rocha Peterson, eight months pregnant, was last seen by her sister, Amy, in the late afternoon of December 23, 2002. She spoke to her mother, Sharon Rocha, at 8:30 p.m. that night. This would be the last time anyone from her immediate family ever spoke to her.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    This is a very good good book but you dont get all the details. When you get the other book narrated by Staci Snell you get so much more. You get full details, more of the story. In this book its very short and simple.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    lol not sure have a lot of books on my wish list to chose from.


    Did Sharon Rocha do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    Yes for the most part.


    Do you think For Laci needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Not really sure
