Publisher's Summary

From the number one New York Times best-selling author of The Handmaid's Tale
Soon to be a Netflix Original series, Alias Grace takes listeners into the life of one of the most notorious women of the 19th century.
It's 1843, and Grace Marks has been convicted for her involvement in the vicious murders of her employer and his housekeeper and mistress. Some believe Grace is innocent; others think her evil or insane. Now serving a life sentence, Grace claims to have no memory of the murders.
An up-and-coming expert in the burgeoning field of mental illness is engaged by a group of reformers and spiritualists who seek a pardon for Grace. He listens to her story while bringing her closer and closer to the day she cannot remember. What will he find in attempting to unlock her memories?
Captivating and disturbing, Alias Grace showcases best-selling, Booker Prize-winning author Margaret Atwood at the peak of her powers.

Don't waste your credit.....

By chapter 4 I was going to return the book, maybe it would better read than listened to. The narration is monotonous, and not very good, it was hard to tell which character was speaking, I found myself frustrated and rolling my eyes alot. I ended up finishing it simply because I looked up the true story of Grace Marks, and wanted to see how the author was going to finish it.
