The narration of this compelling true life experience is exceptional, and I was drawn in from the first few minutes of the preview. I realized the author was presenting a book like none I have ever read...and a perspective worth the time to study. Thank you, Sarah Perry...
This book dragged on for at least 3 hours too long. Sarah said the same things over and over again throughout the book, for example her description and feelings the night of the murder. I understand her sadness, but she sounds obsessed with being and looking like her mother, even years later. Way too many times unimportant details throughout and pointless mentions of things, like the OJ Simpson trial??? Some things she talked of had no relevance to the story.
I felt like this was decent, for a book in the club. This dragged, majorly long and drawn with nothing to keep/hold attention a few hours from the end.
There is nothing truly being said a chapter after the trial but, its still going and going.
I wish I got a better understanding of Sarah and how her relationships with everyone who helped her, after the mothers murder ended so badly, or why nothing good is said about anyone in this book but her mother.
I had avoided this book based on the cover photo and the title, I only started listening when I couldn’t choose something... I am so glad I did!!! The narrator does an amazing job capturing the emotion of the author. The author keep me captivated by the halfway mark of the prologue... can’t say enough good things. Not a gory violent typical true crime, it’s a memoir and I will for sure remember it!!!
Good read and great narrator.
