Disturbingly Good! Worth a Credit.

After reading and listening to some excellent books lately, I was worried that The Butterfly Garden would just be one of those mediocre reads. Narration was excellent. Lauren Ezzo was wonderful and Mel Foster was just as entertaining. The story itself was not all that farfetched but it was disturbing. I didn't want to stop listening and stayed up all hours of the night to hear just a little bit more. Definitely worth the credit. I'll be looking into more books by Dot Hutchinson.

Fantastic!

Plowed through it in two days, couldn't get enough. Hooked me from the beginning. Even though the premise isn't exactly new, this book brought it to a whole new level.

Enjoyable Story

I enjoyed this story quite a bit, you know someone was murdered but with all the conflict and cat fights between the families you don't know who until the end. I have listened to a few of Liane Moriarty's books on audio and really enjoy them.

My one major issue is that you can hear the narrator swallow and wet her mouth while reading the story and it is off putting. I know it is more of a personal pet peeve and many probably wouldn't notice it but I did and then seemed to focus on it more and more. She does do a fairly good job of changing her voices for each character except the women.

Nowhere Near As Good As Forgotten Girls

After listening to Forgotten Girls I was excited to hear more about Louise Rick and Camilla Lind but was very disappointed with this story. The narrator definitely isn't the same either and at times it was hard to tell when different characters were speaking because her inflections and tone was the same throughout most of the book.

The story never really picked up, there was never any part that was climactic. It just kind of moved along.
