Never Enough | [Joe McGinniss]

Never Enough

At 39, Nancy Kissel had it all: the royal lifestyle of the expatriate wife, three young children, and what a friend described as "the best marriage in the universe". That marriage - to investment banker Robert Kissel - ended one November night in 2003 in their luxury apartment high above Hong Kong's glittering Victoria Harbour, when Robert was murdered and Nancy became the prime suspect.

Publisher's Summary

At 39, Nancy Kissel had it all: the royal lifestyle of the expatriate wife, three young children, and what a friend described as "the best marriage in the universe". That marriage - to investment banker Robert Kissel - ended one November night in 2003 in their luxury apartment high above Hong Kong's glittering Victoria Harbour, when Robert was murdered and Nancy became the prime suspect. Her 2005 trial captivated Hong Kong's expatriate community and attracted global attention. Less than a year after the jury returned its unexpected verdict, Rob's brother, Andrew, was also found dead - stabbed in the back at his multimillion-dollar Greenwich mansion.

Never Enough is the harrowing, true story of two brothers who grew up wanting to own the world but instead wound up murdered half a world apart - and of Nancy Kissel, a modern American woman for whom having it all might not have been enough.

    I'm constantly listening to recorded books. Right now I'm a bit sick and weak, but can still enjoy a good listen. I'm so glad I have this resource available.

    "Never Enough"

    I figured a book by Joe McGinniss would be a good listen. I wasn't disappointed.He gives the listener a view into the lives of the super wealthy--living in Hong Kong. It is a bit grisly, yet a fascinating tale of an unhappy wife who carries out a poorly planned murder of her husband. A good listen if you're into true crime stories.

    "Couldn't Stop Listening"

    This was a very interesting and absorbing book. I couldn't stop listening. I found out about the Kissel murder only when the brother Andrew was murdered in Connecticut and saw references to this case. I like Joe McGuiness' true crime books and recommend this one too.

    Story
    "Not McGinniss' best."
    Would you try another book from Joe McGinniss and/or Michael McConnohie?

    This author, absolutely as I have read other books of his. This narrator, only for more upbeat topics.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    This is a true story so the ending was as expected. McGuinniss does a good job of tying up the loose ends, as much as the facts of the story will allow.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    The pace, yes, the mood, no.


    Did Never Enough inspire you to do anything?

    Yes, I was inspired to look for photos of the people. In doing so, I stumbled on clips from of a video dramatization of the story.

    "it's like you were there"

    McGinnis does a great job of making the listener feel as if he or she is there. Supported by terrific detail, McGinnis lays out the entire progression of events leading to the murder as well as throughout the trial and beyond.

    "Interesting true crime"

    If you read true crime, such as Ann Rule, then you will find this book very interesting.

    Story
    "A GOOD "READ". WELL DONE NARATION."
    What did you like about this audiobook?

    IT SHOULD BE THE SAME SHOULD NOT IT BE? BUT I DID FOR SOME REASON LIKE THE WRITTEN VERSION BEST.


    How has the book increased your interest in the subject matter?

    THE STORY REALLY EXPRESSES THE GREED AND SELFISHNESS OF NANCY KISSEL. THE BOOK PORTRAYED HER SELF ABSORBTION WELL.


    Does the author present information in a way that is interesting and insightful, and if so, how does he achieve this?

    THE WHOLE STORY WAS GOOD. BUT I GUESS THE PARTS WHERE SHE WAS COVERING UP HER CIRME.


    What did you find wrong about the narrator's performance?

    NOTHING. IT WAS ENJOYABLE.


    Do you have any additional comments?

    I HAVE PHYSICALLY READ THIS TWICE. AS WELL AS READING THIS BY AUDIOBOOK. THE STORY IS WELL TOLD AND NANCY KISSEL IS PORTRAYED WELL. WISH THERE WAS MORE ABOUT ROB HIMSELF THO.

    "Not one of this author's best"

    I found this to be a very well written but only moderately interesting true crime story. To be fair, I have read five of the author's other books and found them to be truly exceptional and was hoping for something more of that caliber.
