Initial Thoughts.jpg

This is not an easy book to read, but it is worth it.


This is probably the first book I have read that I think would have been better as an audiobook. I think that the podcast component lent itself to an audio format, not that I didn’t enjoy reading it, I think I would have liked it better as an audiobook.

The story is great, though I do feel like it is a little overhyped.  I liked it a lot, but I didn’t love it.  I’ve seen people gushing about this book, and for me, this was not a book to gush over.  The book felt very real and it is very reminiscent of the popular podcast S-Town, at least to me.

The characters were well written, and I really did care what happened to them.  The format of the book really helped to lend itself to the mystery and this book really does lead you on quite the wild ride.

Bottom Line

A very good book, that kept me entertained the whole time.

Overall: 4
