Worth every millisecond of the 27 hour, 15 minute audiobook. I have so much love for this book, and so much admiration for the three women whom the story revolves around. It's extremely hard to read (or listen to!) in places, as the hardship, abuse and torture experienced is just diabolical and it's hard to believe that this is not fiction but actual fact.
A definite 5🌟

So my dogs chewed up the bottom of the couch when we were out this weekend, but luckily we had just bought a couch cover. Hard to get these two rascals in a picture at the same time usually. #dogsoflitsy
I absolutely loved this #fairytaleretelling of Beauty and the Beast - it definitely took on a different stronger feel than any others I had read before!

I just finished my 1st book of 2019, this tragicomedy set in New Orleans in the 1960s. Ignatius J. Reilly is quite a character, as are several of the others you meet along the way in this story of Ignatius' search for a job and his place in society. Thanks for a great #NewYearWhoDis recommendation @Maria514626 @monalyisha #LitsyAtoZ #C @BookishMarginalia #ReadingClassicsIn2019 #ReadingThroughTheYears192021 #192021 #1980
An emotional roller coaster! It was great but it propelled me from anguish to joy back and forth. Overall, a story of triumph over anger and fear. I loved it. 💙
Also I had no idea he had other books out! As a narrator, Alan Cumming is fantastic. I look forward to more.

I really enjoyed this! It could be a little confusing at times, especially in the earlier chapters. However, that disjointed/distracted voice was so authentically Cyndi that it didn‘t bother me in the least. She is everything I idolize in role-models: fierce, passionate, caring, generous, self-deprecating and outspoken. I adore her even more after reading this. #readharder2018 #LitsyAtoZ #C #bowie #lennox #catsoflitsy
Why is this a classic? Or did I confuse it for that since it comes up so much in searches. This was my first time reading it and I finished. Now I‘m just wondering why did I bother. #AmIMissingSomething #LitsyClassics 5/16 #C #2018christyread
