Publisher's Summary

Award-winning author, narrator, and screenwriter Neil Gaiman personally selected this book, and, using the tools of the Audiobook Creation Exchange (ACX), cast the narrator and produced this work for his audiobook label, Neil Gaiman Presents.

A few words from Neil on The Drowning Girl: "As with all "Neil Gaiman Presents" titles, it's very important to me to find the voice that comes closest to the voice in the author's head; for Caitlin, for this book, that was Suzy Jackson. It was not until the second round of auditions that we found someone who sounded young but not naïve, someone who could catalogue the sharp detail of Imp's carefully observed daily life but also convey the blurred edges of her reality. Caitlin and Suzy kept in touch during the recording, and the result is a reading that is precise but not "stagey", a literary but accessible reading of the novel."

India Morgan Phelps - Imp to her friends - is schizophrenic. Struggling with her perceptions of reality, Imp must uncover the truth about her encounters with creatures out of myth - or from something far, far stranger....

Winner of the 2013 Bram Stoker Award for Best Novel.

    "morose"
    What would have made The Drowning Girl better?

    Plot is not lineal enough, floats around and repeats itself, truly boring. This story was making me insane, had to stop a quarter of the way through.


    What could Caitlin R. Kiernan have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Needed to get to the point ,or points earlier. Nor have I been able to develope any empathy for Imp. She's unrealistic, I have relatives and friends who suffer from schizophrenia and are on medication, they are neither isolated nor vacant as this character is portrayed.

    Story
    "Androphobic, pretentious crap."
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    It began well, but then devolved into a androphobic rant, poorly constructed and uninteresting.


    Has The Drowning Girl turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No, Im a fan of horror literature.


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

    Her character interpretation is supberb. she manages to give voice to both the main character as well as the other characters, she is delightful to listen to.


    Did The Drowning Girl inspire you to do anything?

    Yes: Never to read another Caitlin R. Kiernan book. Ever.


    Any additional comments?

    Read something else, this crap is foul, pretentious and boring. You better swallow chipped glass than waste your time reading this piece of lesbic manure.
