Would you consider the audio edition of Because I'm Watching to be better than the print version?

While I didn't read the print version, I have read a number of Ms. Dodd's books. This particular book lends itself extremely well to an audio format, as the pacing is terrific.

What did you like best about this story?

I was kept guessing for a long, long time. And it kept me company during a snowy 10 hour drive across Washington State, over 2 mountain passes. And, since I wasn't quite done when I arrived home, I had to finish listening to the end before I'd allow sleep to take me.

Which character – as performed by Andi Arndt – was your favorite?

Kateri Kwinault continues to be my favorite - she's a take no prisoners character, brutally honest with herself.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Jacob Denisov's realization he had something to live for seems inextricably linked to his belief that Maddie Hewitson wasn't crazy, wasn't imagining her victimization. It seemed that proving Maddie wasn't crazy pulled him from self-loathing and into the light.
