    I am a Nana raising a handicapped grandson. Typically I try to read non-fiction, but enjoy a good thriller as well.

    Story
    "*Death by Bullying*"

    Ryan was barely 18 yr. old. He was good looking, popular, and likeable, yet he chose to end his own life. Why? This is the story of the dark undercurrents that run deep in our society, where the domineering seek to control, and destroy others for the feelings of power it weilds. This was a good read, but left me feeling as if the book ended in the middle of a chapter.

    "Too short"

    It's was a good performance - but short and depressing. If thy had taken time for more plot building and then a little more resolution it would have been a great story.

    "Needs better character development"

    this book had 11 chapters to allow us to get to know the characters and understand the story. After all of that I know the story, some of it predictable, but I don't truely feel that i know any of the characters. After 11 chapters I should know at least one of them.

    "Interesting story"
    Would you listen to To Die For again? Why?

    Yes, Good Short Story


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Liked all of the characters


    What does Rachel Bavidge bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The narrator's performance was a perfect match for the story and characters. A free short story of crime and consequences, well written.


    Any additional comments?

    This book was free via Audible so I gave it a go

    "Good job it was free."

    Very weak and very short story. Not really worth bothering with.
    Narrator did a reasonable job but she was working with poor material.

    "Good short story but slightly pointless?"

    I have to admit I was totally gripped throughout but it fizzled away when it just seemed like listening to a short episode of Midsummer Murder - slightly inconclusive and may have been better as an actual novel.

    Good story but a shame about the swearing. A tale about brothers, envy, girls and police work.

    "Good Little Short Story"

    An easy listen and kept me hooked. Listened to it while working out at the gym and it did what I wanted it to do. The story reminded me or a true event that happened not so long ago, until it got to a certain part. Nice little short story.
