Would you listen to Troublemaker again? Why?

Absolutely! I couldn't wait to listen to the next part of the book.

What about Leah Remini’s performance did you like?

Her sarcastic humor, was endearing and laced with emotion. I never watched the King of Queens and always thought she was abrasive. She shows a lot of thought, emotion, and strength with this book.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes!

Any additional comments?

I commend her for the strength and courage to speak out against Scientology!

Would you listen to The Witness Wore Red again? Why?

I enjoyed listening to this book until the author began using a horrible Texan accent. It was annoying and distracted from the story.

What did you like best about this story?

It shows the insidious nature of the FLDS church (cult), and how it sanctions child, and spousal abuse. I read "Under the Banner of Heaven" and this was a worthy addition to my education about the FLDS church.

Did the narration match the pace of the story?

Yes, until the accent.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

It made me angry that the followers of the FLDS church have buried their heads in the sand, and allowed the systematic abuse of children!
