Audio Quality patchy

I'm not loving some sections of the audio due to quality of recording. The book has great moments i think i'll get the physical book to finish.

Exactly right

If you love the podcast, you'll love this. It's all about the two women who make us laugh, cry and feel less alone. Less murder, more vulnerability. Loved it.

Funny, sad and thoroughly engaging

I'm only relatively new to the 'My favorite murder' podcast and haven't listened all the way yet, but I do really enjoy the camaraderie between Karen and Georgia, and this was no exception. This is a really enjoyable joint memoir about growing up as a woman, finding your way in the world, learning to say 'no' and 'fuck politeness'. It is funny and sad and thoroughly engaging. I really enjoyed this.

it's wonderful. I hope they write another book!

It is a wonderful book. it takes a minute to get used to the different feel, but then it's so nice hearing these heartfelt stories told by two of your favorite people (and Paul Giamatti). oh and a cameo by Marty! 😄 I definitely cried more than once. I'll be listening many times for sure! SSDGM

loved loved loved it!

I'm sad it's over, I loved it so much. It felt I was with my friends, listening to their stories...just like their podcast. The book was insightful, delightful and so relatable. I hope there will be a second book. I love you Karen & Georgia! You have no idea what a difference your podcast & book has made to my life!

Amazing

I never knew I could feel like I was a part of something so amazing, although I live in South Africa and it seems so far away I feel a deep connection with Karen and Georgia and all the wonderful murderinos! THANK you for your honesty and your vulnerability with the deeply personal things that sometimes seem to be too scary to share! You guys are amazing

I cried most of the way through but in a good way

Upfront I’ve gotta say: if you don’t love Karen and Georgia or their podcast or their accents then this isn’t for you. (I mean you should think about that because they’re objectively wonderful but that’s between you and your therapist).

I loved the references to their famous quotes, and how their anecdotes linked so cleverly to each chapter. I love that some of the parts are recorded from live readings, the audience being there feels a bit like the live show podcast episodes and I love it.

I respect their vulnerability, honesty and ability to share the sides of themselves that don’t make them look good. But sharing those things actually makes me know they are GREAT because they’ve put vanity aside so that we can all relate and feel better about the shitty parts of ourselves.

Anyway. I bought it yesterday and have listened twice so what more can I say?

Nothing new here

You won't really learn anything new from this book, I was hoping for more memoir and less self help. It's fine, it's pretty much just what you get on the podcast and stories you've already heard.

This book is everything!

Karen and Georgia have created a space in which mental health, fascinations with the macabre, being vulnerable and making mistakes are all okay, and are bringing more people to the table to show who they are and what they stand for. I’m so proud to be part of this incredible community of listeners, and the book reflects what they stand for entirely.

Brave, beautiful, funny, emotional, and unashamedly themselves. Thank you Karen and Georgia for sharing your vulnerability with us and for giving us an insight into your own experiences; leading the way to show other badass women that you can do anything you put your mind to!

Bravo ladies, bravo!

Exactly right

Genuine, hilarious, nostalgic and deeply relatable, this audiobook was a perfect listen and a must for any listeners of MFM. Georgia and Karen reading their parts of the book themselves made this audiobook extra special due to the personal and vulnerable topics covered. Karen’s witty play-by-play of a typical latchkey kid afternoon made me laugh and talking about her mother and dementia made me cry and call my mum just to say hi.

Wonderful

A totally raw and honest joint memoir that had me laughing and crying. I respect these two so much for constantly opening up their vulnerable side. I especially loved Karen’s anecdote about the slowest shark- so painful and accurate and a great way of coming to grips with that kind of grief.
