A sad wistful story about love, loss, forgiveness and an incredible house that pulls the family back over the years.
Tom Hanks adds the wistful to the story perfectly

Well... a great story that's what! Rosario Dawson totally brought to life Andy Weir's story. I forgot there was only one narrator and was swept away into the moon scape, hilarity and tension. A really great holiday listen. Thanks gals

Steve Shanahan's voice bonds us to the Oz landscape and it's people, making them believable thus allowing us to form relationships with the characters that Jane so deftly writes.

Ohhh this book is a treasure. A connection to family and the deep respect of each others differences and choices.
A love story, an unbelievable yet totally believable story. You need to surrender to the words and you become part of the narrative.
Thank you Trent Dalton for this brave to the bone story.
Thank you Stig Wemyss for doing this story justice

Fast paced cop drama set sometime in the early 70's, Georgia USA. Woman couldn't open their own bank accounts without a male relative going guarantor, Afro-American's were still being segregated AND women certainly couldn't be cops.... could they?
Karin Slaughter at her best, Lorelei King is brilliant!

The truth in this story cuts deeply.

A poignant lesson to reintegrate our battle weary personal with respect and compassion or they can bring that war back home. Slaughter peers into the black hole left inside ( mostly men). These return soldiers who while fighting for America also see and understand the tactics used by the other side. They come home to find that everything is changed; politics, their partners, technology etc. What have they been fighting for? We first saw it when soldiers returned from Vietnam. They came home expecting to be heroes but instead they were treated like pariahs ...any wonder that they suffered PTSD and depression. The effects are still felt today - 40 years later - affecting the whole family, their children and children's children. Slaughters book hits close to the bone. An intense, riveting fast paced well read book.

I feel totally ripped off! The story was over before it began. Slaughter knows how to write a riveting 'slaughter tale' why give us a book with a rediculous beginning, no middle and a stupid end. Whomever revised this book for its anorexic content did a really bad job!!!!

Shame it was abridged!

The story felt weak and lost, not at all like a full Karin Slaughter fest...

I adored listening to this book. The stories within wound around each other with a creativity rich and unique. Celeste Ng could be a photographic genius as she is a story teller.
The narrator, Jennifer Lim carried the story seamlessly.
I highly recommend this book.

I couldn't finish this book. The narrator did a fair job making me feel like something was going to happen but it just went on and on about nothing that I can remember.
