What made the experience of listening to After I'm Gone the most enjoyable?
At first the book was a slow start, then I couldn't turn it off. I did the 10.30 hours in only a few days.
What did you like best about this story?
I loved all the women’s individual stories. Each one had a true story to tell.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
I did it in 3 sittings, I would have done it in one sitting if I could.
Would you listen to After I'm Gone again? Why?
Yes, i'd listen to it again because even though I now know who dun it, I'd find lots to enjoy thanks to Linda Lippman's superior writing and her well-drawn characters..
What other book might you compare After I'm Gone to, and why?
It's a little like the works of Scott Turow - Presumed Innocent for example, as it has the focus of a thriller but with several interesting, fallible characters and a non-linear plot.
Have you listened to any of Linda Emond’s other performances? How does this one compare?
I'd never heard her before but i like her very much and will seek out books with her as the narrator.
If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?
I can't think of anything smart right now.
Any additional comments?
It's great to hear a thriller which is well written with authentic-sounding dialogue and a cast of characters you can relate to in one way or another. I actually cried at the end! I'll certainly be listening to and reading more of Laura Lippman's work.

Whilst not 'great' this was a very enjoyable story with good character development. The story has three main timelines and a number of characters so it can be a bit confusing at times. Tha narrator does a lovely job. The mystery is really secondary to the story of all the main characters and I found the ending very satisfying. I look forward to reading another book by Laura Lippman.
