    I love to read, but my job as a truck driver does not allow me to indulge as much as I would love to. Audible has been a dream come true. I enjoy many hours of listening to a variety of fantastic books. Thanks Audible.

    "A lot of info."

    I did enjoy listening, but I found that it was a lot of stuff to process, and at a fast pace. It was not what I expected. On the bright side, I can listen to it again, because I know there were parts that I surely missed.

    I do recommend this audiobook. A person just has to really be focused. The stories are very fast paced. Maybe less stories, and more details on those crimes would suit me better. We are all different, so maybe another listener will find it at his, or her pace.

    Bravo Mr R.Barrie Flowers and Loraine Flowers. Good choice in the narrator. A lot of research done!

    Keep up the good writing.

    "Not worth the money"
    What would have made Murders In The United States better?

    If this book went into greater details it might have been a better book


    What was most disappointing about R. Barri Flowers and H. Loraine Flowers ’s story?

    Not only were the stories very short but many were repeated again during the book


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Very disappointed in the book overall and did not even finish listening to it. In all fairness this could have been written by an 8th or 9th grader. Very little time was spent researching each case.

    "A disappointment.........."
    What did you like best about Murders In The United States? What did you like least?

    The book started off fairly well with Part1. The Part 1 consisted of murders that had been committed over the years in decade sized chunks. Then Part 2 started and this is where it started to go downhill fairly quickly, as a repetition started of the murders that had already been mentioned in Part 1. So after two hours I switched off. Yawn!!!
