Slow Burn. Little Payoff.
I was excited for this one because of the reviews but overall it felt slow and nothing much happens. I finished it out of stubbornness to quit but didn’t care much for any characters. Don’t pick this up looking for a dark thriller because that’s not what this is.

WOW! Good Wolf &amp;amp;Bad
At first Good me: Bad Me started rather slow but give it a tiny bit of time. The narration seemed a better fit for fairy tales but soon my ears adjusted to the melody of the British narration and carried me along.
The story which was much like being swept up in a current.
The subject of having children abducted and abused is a base for this story but it is not so overwhelming in details that it turns your gut. It is the elephant in the room for sure, but the heartwrenching details are presented in such a way that I dare call them palatable ( if there is such a thing). It is a detail to the underbelly of these characters drive and the stories flow.
This is a very intriguing book that explores and lends insight to the victimization, genetics, and sickness of abusers as well as the real lives of those who reach out to offer support and make a difference.
This book may not be for everyone but it doesn't have a lot of gory detail, cursing or descriptive sexual content. As a listener, I didn't find myself entertained by the subject of abuse as much as the story as a whole.
Good me Bad me is a very good, suspenseful story that flows through what I'll call a tainted river no one wants to truly navigate but it skirts the edges enough to get you wet enough to feel.
I don't just hand out 5 stars and I considered going 4 because this book may not be for everyone but considering how well it was presented I believe this one earned them as a whole.
