⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ I really liked this one and was surprised to see it had only 3.83 stars on goodreads. If you liked this, read the short story “EDickinsonRepiLuxe”, which is in Joyce Carol Oates‘ ‘Wild Nights‘

I wanted to read this as I was really intrigued by the concept of people starting anew and to see how this group evolved. My interest in books like Where the Crawdad‘s Sing, Educated, The Silent Alone & Prodigal Summer led me to this title — if enjoyed any of those titles, you might like this one too

Kdgordon88 I‘ve read and loved 3 out of the four. Stacked! 5mo

The southern lady stereotype was spot on at certain points, which I appreciated as I‘ve been so long away from that. It helped me immediately identify with these women. However, there was a big part of me that wanted this to be something more than it was. There‘s a metaphor in there I‘m sure but it‘s not near as powerful as I‘d hoped it‘s be. ⚰️⚰️⚰️

BlueMoonJ This book fascinated me. The horror was a lot more than just a vampire. Worse even. Trying not to post spoilers. 8mo
Librariana I felt very similarly about it - wanted it to be more than what it was. 8mo
Ms.Story @BlueMoonJ I‘m glad to hear you liked it! I‘m worried I moved through the audio too quickly as there‘s something there but it just hasn‘t clicked for me yet. But ... I definitely saw a range of things/people that drained life and purpose from these women. 8mo
Reggie @BlueMoonJ was it the husbands? Cause they were HORRIBLE. I wanted to punch all of them. 8mo

I was really into some parts of this audio ... especially the parts that referenced the individual narratives we make from shared experiences. I wish that had been explored a bit more. I also feel like the ending was quite abrupt 🤔

Honestly thought this series wasn‘t to my liking as I usually enjoy the detective, procedural aspects of crime/detective novels. I enjoyed book one but didn‘t anticipate reading anymore of the series due to the graphic details from victim‘ point of view. But then I found I‘d listened to all 6 in the series in two weeks!!!

I sought out this book after finishing “Where the Crawdads Sing.” The audiobook is narrator by Kingsolver and transported me straight into the heart of the story. I loved this intimate, beautiful look at nature and humans.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Excellent narration by the author himself. I‘d love to teach parts of this along with TKAM. I haven‘t seen the film but have heard good things about it as well.

Scochrane26 We watched the movie w/ youth group, & it‘s really good. There were tears involved. 1y
