See What I Have Done | Sarah Schmidt
Haunting, gripping and gorgeously written, SEE WHAT I HAVE DONE by Sarah Schmidt is a re-imagining of the unsolved American true crime case of the Lizzie Borden murders, for fans of BURIAL RITES and MAKING A MURDERER. When her father and step-mother are found brutally murdered on a summer morning in 1892, Lizzie Borden - thirty two years old and still living at home - immediately becomes a suspect. But after a notorious trial, she is found innocent, and no one is ever convicted of the crime. Meanwhile, others in the claustrophobic Borden household have their own motives and their own stories to tell: Lizzie's unmarried older sister, a put-upon Irish housemaid, and a boy hired by Lizzie's uncle to take care of a problem. This unforgettable debut makes you question the truth behind one of the great unsolved mysteries, as well as exploring power, violence and the harsh realities of being a woman in late nineteenth century America.

LiteraryinLawrence Thanks for posting more options- you have so many great choices! I have read Time Traveler‘s Wife and The Other Einstein and would prefer to read something new ideally. I‘m fine with any of the others and my top picks would probably be The Snow Child, The Water Cure or The Power. 8mo
Kayla.Adriena @LiteraryinLawrence I agree, I want to choose something no one has read 8mo
BennettBookworm Awesome choices! Top pick would be Snow Child or boys in the boat. Already read time traveler‘s wife and the power (two all time favorites so you should def read them!). Fine with anything else tho! 8mo
shellleigh33 I don‘t want anyone to have to read anything again so my picks are The Snow Child or The Water Cure. I also agree you have to read The Time Traveler‘s Wife, it is one of my favorites 8mo
Kayla.Adriena @LiteraryinLawrence @BennettBookworm @shellleigh33 the Snow Child it is ❄. Also I'd like to pick dark blue for my pen color if that's okay with everyone 8mo

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ I read this right after reading The Trial of Lizzie Borden with #sundaybuddyread. It is a fictional account of the day before and day of the Borden murders. It takes place from Lizzie‘s, Emma‘s, Bridget‘s, and a man named Benjamin‘s perspective. It does a great job taking what is known or suspected and the author‘s creative ideas to form an insightful character study. Recommend. #bookspinbingo No. 3 #screamathon

3/5 quick and engaging. Lizzie is written a bit erratically (makes sense) but sometimes it lost me or bored me. The non linear timeline was a bit confusing at times. Audio narration was quite lovely.

Avanders But... there was so much potential, it‘s a bit of a let down that it wasn‘t better. 😕🤷🏽‍♀️ 2y
BethM @Avanders I agree. And I definitely wouldn‘t recommend it to someone who isn‘t familiar with the murders, I think it would be even more confusing. 2y

Still trying to work out my feelings on this one. It was well written, but Schmidt apparently didn‘t want to show us the murders, just the before and after. IMO, if you‘re gonna write a fictional account of famous murders, leave the maybes for someone else and just go all in with your theory.

As someone who has been fascinated by the Borden murders for a long time, I was excited to read this. The first third was excellent — very creepy & atmospheric. The author‘s strange descriptions of food & smells made me feel like I was there!

Where it went wrong imo was the non-linear timeline. By the time I got to the last 3rd of the book, it was a slog.

So, I‘d still recommend this to those really interested in the Borden murders because ⬇️

JenlovesJT47 It gives an interesting take on what could have happened and makes you think about all of the variables and how we‘ll never know for sure what really happened. Recommended to Borden aficionados, not necessarily everyone else‘s cup of tea. 3.5⭐️ 2y
Megabooks Do not eat that damn mutton stew is what I learned from this book! 🤢 2y
JenlovesJT47 @Megabooks ugh yes! I literally felt queasy every time they mentioned it. 🤢 I‘m personally of the opinion that IRL Lizzie was not trying to poison them. I think Andrew was just a cheapskate and they were eating spoiled food. I‘m glad I live in the 21st century! 2y

A novel that explores the murders of Lizzie Borden‘s father and stepmother in their home in August 1892, with plenty of unsettling imagery to keep you thinking about it long after it‘s done.

I have mixed feelings.

The author did a great job setting the mood and establishing how dysfunctional the Borden household was. You can almost smell and taste some of the nastiness she writes about. 🤢 Still, I found it hard to stay with the book at times because it was just sort of... boring. Not sorry I read it, but I think I was expecting to really love this fictionalized account of the Borden murders.

I've always been interested in the Borden case and have had this on my tbr for a while, so I'm glad the generator chose #30.

I'm a UK user, so didn't know much about the case and the lead-up to the murders. This retelling was interesting to me, I didn't know that the Bordens were rich and kept a maid or about the uncle.

It was a good starting point for me and would definitely read more about this case.

PirateJenny I'm in the middle of this. One thing that kind of annoys me is that only Mrs. Borden ever called the maid Bridget. Everyone else called her Maggie, the name of the previous maid. Also just a little note on the class thing in town: they were well-off but not exactly rich. There were other Bordens in Fall River who were rich and didn't consider Andrew and his family good enough to be real Bordens. 3y
jenniferw88 @PirateJenny thanls for the insight. 3y
PirateJenny @jenniferw88 I've been fascinated by the case since I was a kid. I accidentally got married on the anniversary of the murders! My husband refuses to go to the Borden B&B for our anniversary though. 😂 3y

I enjoyed this novel which reimagines the murders of Andrew & Abby Borden. It‘s told from 4 POVs—Lizzie, chief suspect (as the reader knows) & an unreliable narrator, her sister Emma, the maid Bridget & a man named Benjamin (another problematic narrator). I liked the writing, & how it was choppy & sometimes jumped around, particularly in Lizzie‘s chapters, & loved the atmosphere the author created in this creepy, engrossing retelling. Recommended.

I enjoyed Schmidt's writing style but I felt like she ran out of steam long before the conclusion. The book alternatives between Lizzie, her older sister Emma, maid Bridget, and a random drifter Benjamin who has met Lizzie's uncle. The family dynamic was the best part of the book (including the role of live in maid Bridget) and the Benjamin plot just detracted.

I could be to blame because I‘m forever breaking the cardinal rule “don‘t judge a book by its cover” but it usually serves me well. I love how this book looked, sadly that‘s where the live stopped. It was horribly boring, drawn out for not an excessively long book, the characters were unlovable, and I desperately wanted to give up on it. Closest I‘ve been to a DNF.

I tried to listen to the audiobook of this and almost abandoned the book because of that. I ended up reading some more before DNFing it and decided that would be the best route. I think I will finish this. While I openly admit that I don‘t particularly enjoy fiction in audiobook form, I really do think that this audiobook was particularly bad. Hopefully I will enjoy the book more now!

Hestapleton Yeah this audiobook was not great. The voices were so grating! I listened to it on 1.75x speed to get through it. 4y

No #HeartsOfGold here in this fictionalization of the infamous Borden family! I listened to this one and while interesting enough for my #AudioColoring, the POVs and timeline weren‘t always very clear... I was hoping for a little more insight into this through a fictional way of bringing these characters to life, but this left me wanting more... I hear there‘s a new nonfiction book out on Lizzie‘s trial so maybe that will do! #MarchIntoThe70s

Cinfhen This book was a little disappointing. And I read an ARC for the new Lizzie Borden book. It was very dry🙄 4y

This was fine, certainly not as gripping as I was hoping for. Narrated by four characters, the book slowly reveals Lizzie‘s mental illness and how she could have committed these atrocious acts. The audiobook was not the best choice for this—I found the voices simpering and grating, for all the characters. ⭐️⭐️

Visceral. Revolting. I loved it.

Did Lizzie Borden kill her father and stepmother? I know what I think.

I enjoyed the book‘s focus on Lizzie‘s sister Emma. What must life have been like for her?

This is not my usual kind of book and I know there are very mixed reviews, but I thought it was full of life as it was of decay.

so here‘s the thing:

if ur on the lookout for a great, creepy read then u could do way worse than this. it has good atmosphere and compelling female characters and a lovely sort of whodunnit atmosphere.

HOWEVER if ur more than vaguely familiar with lizzie borden u aren‘t really going to find much here u won‘t find elsewhere. is it well executed? yus. is that enough? maybe.

dont regret the time i spent with this book. wouldn‘t insist u read it.

Reviewsbylola I definitely see what you‘re saying about this one. I didn‘t enjoy it but knowing a lot about Lizzie Borden made it really difficult for me to get past the artistic licenses the author took. 4y
gentlepet @Reviewsbylola totally understand that! i knew enough to be kinda “meh” but i think if i were more invested in the case i would have been really miffed. PLUS she skipped the trial which imho is one of the most interesting parts of the whole saga! 4y

Definitely not a book for everyone - it was creepy and grotesque in parts - but fitting for #CallingAllTheMonsters . Lizzie Borden took an ax...or did she? Schmidt interprets what she thinks happened that fateful day in Fall River.

Thanks for a fun #OctoberXFiles @Cinfhen and @Robothugs !

Cinfhen Always happy to have you 💕💕hope to see u in November 🦃 4y
Robothugs Thanks for playing along!! 4y

Mehso-so

This book made me queasy - and I think it did so on purpose! The sickly descriptions of the heat, the odors, that infamous mutton broth... I felt claustrophobic and dreadful. Which is EXACTLY what Lizzie and Bridget felt waking up in that house every day!! It‘s a Pick for the imagery and the suspense, a So-So because it made me feel seasick.

Day 19 of the @bookriot #Riotgrams challenge: setting you‘ve been to! No one will be surprised to learn that I have slept at Lizzie Borden‘s house, which is now a bed and breakfast. I have a lot of stories from my visit, some of them bittersweet because the person I went with is dead now. (I swear I didn‘t do it.) But mostly it was rad. ☠️⚰️📚

LeahBergen I stayed there, too, and endlessly bore my acquaintances with the story. 😆😆 Which room did you sleep in? 4y
Liberty @LeahBergen Her parents‘ bedroom. 4y
LeahBergen We stayed in the John Morse room (and my friend made me sleep on the side of the bed where Abby‘s body was found 😳). 4y
Liberty @LeahBergen There were three college girls in there who started shrieking at 2am, saying they saw someone in the room. They ended up staying in the room with the parents who brought them. 4y
Mdargusch I‘m not sure I could sleep there @Liberty and @LeahBergen 😬 that gives me the creeps just thinking about it! 4y

I‘ve always had a weird obsession with the true crime case of Lizzie Borden and the infamous murders that occurred in Fall River in 1892. Schmidt does a brilliant job, weaving a nail-biting, page-turning, fictionalized narrative around the details of the crime. I highly recommend this one and if there are any true crime fans of the Lizzie Borden case out there, order this ASAP.. you won‘t regret it! 5/5
