No. No way. I'm wishing now I'd have passed on THIS one.
The story is like listening to Edith Bunker tell a story. Ties you in knots just trying to follow the plot, but it's not even funny. If Pennypacker actually wrote these tales, it's not the hotness that kept them from print. Think listening to that obnoxious person at a party that hangs on your arm and rattles on and on, as you consider setting yourself on fire to escape.
The constant voice imitations grate on the nerves in short order. Scott, you really don't need to try to imitate all of your characters. Please stop it and just read.
Pretty much all of it. I can't even believe I bought this. I thought the sample was bad, but wrongly assumed it was just a bad sampling and the book would really be better. It isn't.
"You get what you pay for" still applies. If this was the most wasted 7 bucks I ever spend, I'll be lucky. But it'll always rate right up at the top of the list. My head hurts.
This is among my "Top 10" read so far.
Actually, I found the whole book fascinating. Think of it as seeing the inside of a clock for the first time; you know it tells you the correct time, but now you can see how the pieces work to give you the correct time.
Mel's narration of the book was like a friend telling you a story. Very easy to listen to.
There was, but I won't spoil it for other readers. They'll know it when they hear it.
There's nothing here that most of us didn't already know or at least suspect. However, you'll be taken deeper into the backstory of the "everyday O.J." than any media ever went before. If you love true story whodunits like I do, this one's worth checking out.
