Would you try another book from Emma Flint and/or Lauren Fortgang and Graham Halstead ?
The narration was great. The story was just incredibly boring and literally nothing happens for the majority of the book.
Has Little Deaths turned you off from other books in this genre?
If books from this genre are this anticlimactic, then I doubt I will read more. I basically listened to Ruth be miserable, Frank be aloof the entire time, and Pete was just creepy and clearly a novice, but not in an endearing way. Nothing happens in this book. The only thing that peaks interest is the disappearance of the children, and then at the end when we find out who committed the crime. The rest of the story is 9 hours of nothing.
What does Lauren Fortgang and Graham Halstead bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
I'm a fan of the narrators. They performed the story well. But the story itself just dragged on and on.
If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Little Deaths?
I would cut all of the dialogue from the characters that serve absolutely no purpose. And I would also cut most of Ruth's wallowing, because it isn't even close to relatable. She may be unlikable, which is fine, but there is no depth to her, even during the portions of the book where we're supposed to be getting a glimpse into her personality and inner demons.
Any additional comments?
Do not recommend. At all.

I bought this after reading an article about the author and, although it's considered a novel, because it's based on the Alice Crimmins story, which I had never heard about before. So well written it leaves a mark.
