Beautiful!!!!!

Would you consider the audio edition of Persons Unknown to be better than the print version?

I dont read printed books anymore due to headaches.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Manon. Down to earth, relatable , a very realistic character.

What about Juanita McMahon’s performance did you like?

She is one hell of an actress. She is spot on with amazing voices and makes this book absolutely lyrical. These are two rare books where author and reader come together perfectly.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Yes, i had a range of emotions. It made me laugh and cry.

Any additional comments?

Get this book. If there are negative reviews im not sure what they could possibly be. I think nowadays people cannot sit still without nonstop action. This is not that kind of book. This is a book to be apppreciated like a good meal. Susan Steiner can write. She is not just a good storyteller, she knows how to write. After each of these books they left me unable to get into another book until i could forget them. Thats hard to do....they really stayed with me. These books are most certainly mysteries, but they are also slice of life books. The characters and their stories will stay with you.

The second book is as good as the first

I love the way Ms Steiner unfolds the story through the characters. Fascinating. You can identify with all of them, even the bad ones ... a pleasure to spend my time in this book :-)

Great Characters!

I loved so many of these deeply flawed but evolving characters. So clear what drives them ...I look forward to more time with them. Great and funny descriptions of pregnancy, nursing, mixed feelings on motherhood. I loved the section on David sorting out the difference between him and his "friends" ... the issue of wanting real exchanges. I also love the struggle and resolves Manot reaches around Fly. The rude awakening all parents are pressed to about their control over their children's fates. And Birdie!!! What a type... I could nearly smell her! Loved her uneducated intelligence... her exploration of new possibilities... the strained sweetness between her and Angel... how it altered her.

Truly great storytelling

The analogies and metaphors were profound.
Several times I was brought to tears, several other times I was brought to laughter out loud. Absolutely loved Missing, Presumed but Persons Unknown was a wonderful sequel and demonstrated the author's growth in the crafting of the plot and the use of creative devices in the writing.
