Painful and disjointed.
Painfully slow and disjointed. The narrator’s tone which sounds slightly condescending just adds to the misery that this book is. Potentially it is better as a read but I would stay away from audiobook.
The Last Days of August
- By: Jon Ronson
- Narrated by: Jon Ronson
- Length: 3 hrs and 43 mins
- Original Recording
In December 2017 the famous porn star August Ames committed suicide in a park in the Conejo Valley. It happened a day after she’d been the victim of a pile-on, via Twitter, by fellow porn professionals - punishment for her tweeting something deemed homophobic. A month later, August’s husband, Kevin, connected with Jon Ronson to tell the story of how Twitter bullying killed his wife. What neither Kevin nor Ronson realized was that Ronson would soon hear rumors and secrets hinting at a very different story - something mysterious and unexpected and terrible.

Doesn’t get anywhere
Some interesting conversations but the story does not really get anywhere. Seems like police aspect of the situation is also overlooked.
