Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I have. I have read much about these murders and the subsequent trials and parole hearings BUT I found it to be an eye-opener hearing it from the family's perspective. I shed a LOT of tears while listening to this book. SO glad I read it!!!

Who was your favorite character and why?

Doris Tate, PJ Tate, Patty Tate in that order

Have you listened to any of the narrators’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

no

If you could give Restless Souls a new subtitle, what would it be?

perfectly titled

Any additional comments?

none

NO

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

taken God out of the equasion

What aspect of Joyce Bean’s performance would you have changed?

nothing

Could you see Don't Leave Me This Way being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

NO

Any additional comments?

why would a loving, benevolant God put a person through this ordeal?? I was OK with the book until the end when she started touting that God made her go through this awful experience to come out a better person..

JLH's book is as spunky as she is! Lots of laughs.. mostly cause we can relate with her experiences and because she tells them in such a humorous manner. So glad she read her own audio book as it somehow made everything much more relevant.

talk about minutiae!!!!

This author did NOT leave out any detail... talk about OVERKILL!!! INFORMATION OVERLOAD. This book could have done without 75% of the writing that the author seemed to somehow feel made a difference in the telling of this story. It made a difference all right... One cannot wait to check this book back into the libary... mundane minutiae!!!!!
