    "A Flaccid Flop"
    What disappointed you about Lie Still?

    This story sounded good in the description and in some of the reviews, but it didn't begin to live up to its hype. l struggled to care about Emily, the protagonist, and her problems. I had hopes that as the story progressed, that I would want to know what would happen next, but it just went on and on and on … with all these obnoxious grown up Texas sorority girls and Caroline, their "pledge master" directing their lives. I did not care who murdered Caroline. Actually, I was hoping someone would, but even when that happened, still the story dragged on. I kept wishing Emily would deliver her husband an ultimatum, take off back to New York, have her baby, hire a nanny, and get on with her life. The story deals somewhat with date rape and that is a worthy subject to explore but this story just didn't deliver on that and it isn't even the main thread. I did not finish this audiobook. I just couldn't listen to one more obnoxious Texas airhead. If I were a Texan I would be good and mad at this book. So what bothered me the most? I guess it would have to be the whole storyline. I listened to about 3/4 of it and quit when I decided that the story arc wasn't functioning. It was there but it just wasn't working. This book needed some serious editing, but even an editor couldn't fix the vapid prose.


    Has Lie Still turned you off from other books in this genre?

    I won't be listening to any more books of its ilk. I didn't like Gone Girl either. Both were ridiculous.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Rebecca Gibel’s performances?

    As long as she doesn't read them in a southern accent. And by the way, hers is good. But I need a rest!


    What character would you cut from Lie Still?

    Most of them.


    Any additional comments?

    I would love to have my credit back.
