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....

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.
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.
Maybe if I was desperate
went on way to much in circles... had no idea who was who
Disapointment that I had spent my credit on this.
It began well, but then devolved into a androphobic rant, poorly constructed and uninteresting.
No, Im a fan of horror literature.
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.
Yes: Never to read another Caitlin R. Kiernan book. Ever.
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.
better plot content to keep the listener interested
iOneida would scrap the book or at least change the angle
