Not a True Crime Novel in the traditional sense

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

The Narrator has a very odd speaking pattern that became increasingly intolerable for me. She reads almost every sentence as an interrogative sentence. Her voice goes up at the end of each sentence as if she is asking a question even when she is reading a fact. So, possibly, I may have enjoyed this book slightly more if it had been read by another narrator.

Has Who Killed My Daughter? turned you off from other books in this genre?

No.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Who Killed My Daughter??

All scenes having to do with psychic readings should have been ommitted. As the genre implies, a true crime novel should be made up of known facts. The endless droning on about the numerous psychic readings the author attended was nonsensical and did not add to the story in any way at all. There is not one "fact" that was offered during any psychic reading that aided the author in finding the answer to her question "Who Killed My Daughter". The readings of these transcripts from the psychic were boring and pointless to this listener and detracted from the story.

Sad story. Horrible narration.

I was familiar with the story and the author. There is a personal connection to this family. However, the narration was absolutely horrible. Never again will I listen to any book she reads. please have someone else read this!!! You are doing a great disservice to Lois and the family.

Robotic

The narrator seems almost like a text to speech voice. Which is fine, but a bit odd.

True Story

I enjoy reading nonfiction. However, this story (even though there is a sequel) suffers from the number one issue with true stories, it is unresolved. So it is fascinating to read about the family, the case, and all the possible solutions. But you have to be okay without those answers.

ugh

The narrator has a very annoying uptick at the end of most of her sentences. The fake accents are cringey. The writer....while I'm very sorry for what the family went through....the way they treated their pets was pitiful. Couldn't finish. No wonder it's free.

Sad, compelling story but needs to be updated

Uses culturally inappropriate words like "oriental" to describe Asian people. The narrator is terrible at accents, her Mexican, Norwegian, and Vietnamese accents all sound vaguely Asian.

Draws you in

Although there is not a definitive ending to this story (and no answer to the titular question), the author takes the listener on a journey both incredulous and everyday. The story told is a melding of true crime and memoir and reveals how "ordinary people" with "ordinary lives" are impacted by extra ordinary events.

avoid

really struggled to listen to this book. The narrator was stilted and robotic. So I didn't even finish listening.
