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.
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.
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.
This author, absolutely as I have read other books of his. This narrator, only for more upbeat topics.
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.
The pace, yes, the mood, no.
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.
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.
AUDIBLE MAKES READING POSSIBLE AND EASY FOR ME...I AM VISUALLY IMPAIRED. I WISH THEY HAD ALL THE BOOKS I WANT I WOULD SNAP THEM UP!
IT SHOULD BE THE SAME SHOULD NOT IT BE? BUT I DID FOR SOME REASON LIKE THE WRITTEN VERSION BEST.
THE STORY REALLY EXPRESSES THE GREED AND SELFISHNESS OF NANCY KISSEL. THE BOOK PORTRAYED HER SELF ABSORBTION WELL.
THE WHOLE STORY WAS GOOD. BUT I GUESS THE PARTS WHERE SHE WAS COVERING UP HER CIRME.
NOTHING. IT WAS ENJOYABLE.
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.
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.
