Publisher's Summary

The nation wept when news broke of nearly three-year-old Caylee Anthony's disappearance from her home in Florida in July 2007. The search for Caylee made front-page headlines. But Casey Anthony continued to lie to law enforcement about her daughter's whereabouts, complicating their search for the truth.

Soon, Casey was the most hated person in America. This updated version of the book covers the murder trial of Caylee's mother and its unexpected outcome. The tragedy of Caylee Anthony will haunt you for years to come.

Reader Makes All The Difference

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

The reader was really bad. Usually it's the reader that captures you and makes the book interesting and wanting more. This reader was too stunted, couldn't do voice changes, sounded totally uninterested in what she was reading. I will never purchase another book read by her.

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

I really can't say what was most interesting. After listening to Part 1 I couldn't listen any more. The reader took all the pleasure out of the experience. Very sad because there are so many great readers. This is the first time I've ever made such a complaint.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Sally Blake?

I think C.J.Critt, Gabra Zackman, Barbara Rosenbladt, really anyone, but Sally Blake.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

The story was one I was really looking forward to and unfortunately because the reader was so bad I couldn't find any redeeming qualities.

Any additional comments?

How about a re-release with a more proficient reader!

save your money

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

Boy had I only known, I guess I am spoiled by all the great books and greater narrators out there, This book is not only confusing (the first half of the book spews out hundreds of dates and a HUGE amount of people you can never remember) but the narrator is obviously READING the book to you, so the characters have no personality. My kid could have put more life in this story! I am listening since I paid for it but I can't wait for it to be over!!!

What could Diane Fanning have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

BURNED IT

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Sally Blake?

Sally get YOURSELF ANOTHER JOB!!! MY 10 YEAR OLD DAUGHTER

What character would you cut from Mommy's Little Girl?

WOULD BE EASIER TO TELL YOU WHO TO KEEP

Any additional comments?

Unlistenable

This reader is horrendous! She is so montone that as soon as I started listening I thought I had accidentally changed a setting on the narration speed. I am very interested in hearing this book so I tried not to focus on the reader but it is impossible to not be distracted by her robotic way of reading. I wouldn't think it was possible to narrate a true story about the brutual killing of a toddler but somehow this unfeeling woman reads it with as much passion as I would read my grocery list. I can't believe someone hired her for this job!!

AWFUL NARRATOR

Would you try another book from Diane Fanning and/or Sally Blake?

Diane? Sure. Sally? No way.

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

I'm actually not done yet but I feel so passionate about the narration that I wanted to comment on it.

How could the performance have been better?

I cannot believe they didn't scrap this and start over with someone new. Most of the time the narrator sounds like a robot with a first grade education. When she is reading the dialogue of Cindy Anthony she sounds whiny and panicked no matter the context.

Did Mommy's Little Girl inspire you to do anything?

Actually, yes! Not to take away from the serious subject matter, but I have been considering becoming a narrator myself and this performance gave me a lot of confidence.

Well written but...

Quite possibly the worst narration I've ever heard. Shame, because the author did a great job.

Hard to believe any mother could kill her child

I have also read the book and enjoyed the audio version of the book now. THIS BOOK IS BETTER HERD! I did find I was very angry at moments and wanted to slap the stupity out of the so call mother and the grandmother of the poor baby So wronged and stripped from life. I pray for peace for the little angel.

No justice for Caylee

This story was told spot on. Living in central Florida I can say that this is a most accurate telling of the true story of the death of Caylee Anthony. May she rest in peace.

Won't be listening to it again bit boring and long winded

The story was interesting but the narrator is very monotone and story was hard to follow at times due to so many people being involved the case. It was like it was being read from the police case file word for word.
