Love Elizabeth Peters writing style with such great characters and dialogue. Rosenblat is an amazing narrator
I rarely write reviews, but I'm not sure I'll finish this book. Poor storyline with characters that are extreme - Kick is too good at everything, mother is too evil, Bishop too mysterious. Story about a child abducted for child porn, but still loves her abductor who refuses to tell the location of other houses where other children might be. Story just doesn't make sense
Crazy true story, but a little slow at times. Had to keep listening to find out what really happened.
Interesting story about Vietnam, but just couldn't keep my attention. Not sure if it was the narrator who was very monotone or just the slow storyline. Maybe both. Car ride material maybe, but not while running, cleaning or cooking.
Waiting for the second and third installations. Like others have written - ends rather suddenly without much resolution.
I usually don't take time to review books, but I since I often use the reviews to help me decide on books I thought I would take the time for this one. I kept seeing it in the stores and on the audible website wondering what was making it so popular as it personally doesn't sound all that intriguing. Not only is it a well written and endearing story, but it is a perfect audiobook. The three main characters are casted so well and bring out the southern culture as I never would have experienced just reading it. Fantastic audiobook.
