This was one of those books that you don't want to end. Cupcake Brown is a remarkable woman with an AMAZING story! I had not heard her story before I read the book. Her story so intrigued me that I did additional research on the web to follow up on her success post the completion of the book. I would HIGHLY recommend all young women to read!
Unlike the movie - the book was the account of what happened prior to, during and after those gruesome murders. Very well written and narrated!
I'm not sure why actor/authors think that because they are successful on screen/stage that they can successfully narrate a book! Ed McMahon would have done better if he had allowed someone else to do the reading. He was doing just that....reading and it didn't sound natural. There were some slow spots in the book that I literally fast forwarded through. All in all there were interesting parts and insight to Johnny Carson that I had not heard before.
I've already gone back and listened to this one a couple of times! This has been one of Sylvia's best audible books! Having someone else narrate was a good move on Sylvia's part. I highly recommend this one to anyone that believes in the spirit visits as well as anyone that "wants" to believe!
This book was so interesting due to the nature of the sisters plight. The read was able to relate the "norm" connection between sisters as well as the special circumstances the sisters had to face together. Great book!
As she always seems to be Rosie put it all out there for the public to see. She never seems to candy coat who she is. Rosie did a good job of narrating. Quick listen. Wasn't ready for it to be over.
The book seemed to go in many directions at one time. Although some of that would be understandable due to the authors issues - I kept waiting for it to get to the point. The only message I took away from the book is the obvious - Drugs will screw up your life.
Nevada Barr's ability to describe the scenery as well as the womens thoughts and feelings are impecable! Although I still "want more" I can also find an ending that is acceptable in my own mind. Great book!
The story line was lacking....I kept expecting it to get better. I finally gave up with three or four chapters to go. I found it frustrating.
