Where does She Left Me the Gun rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
It is right up there with the best of them.
What other book might you compare She Left Me the Gun to and why?
I can't name a specific book, or author, but what She Left Me The Gun has in common with the best memoirs is a flow, and a story. There is mystery, humor, horror, and growth.
What about Emma Brockes’s performance did you like?
Everything! Sometimes authors reading their own books is a big mistake, but in this case I can't imagine how someone else could do a better job.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Yes, although I did break it up for real life concerns, and I will be listening to it again to savor the writing.
Any additional comments?
Don't be afraid of the subject matter - dysfunctional families are the cliche of memoir, but this one is fresh, fascinating, and involving. In my opinion it really does deserve five stars.

Story of a young woman whose seeks to know her mother's past, after her mom passes away. Great concept. Needed editing. Good for discussions.
