Loved this listen! I was hooked immediately and kept guessing throughout the story. Characters are very well done by the narrator and the story will keep you listening. I was through this within a day and a half. Worth the credit!

If you could sum up My Second Death in three words, what would they be?
Unexpected! The woman, Michaela, has antisocial personality disorder. This story is told from her perspective.
What was one of the most memorable moments of My Second Death?
When the true nature of her relationship with her brother David was revealed. Although she has a personality disorder (and probably some kind of developmental disorder on the autism spectrum), Her brother is the true madman. One can sense it from the story, but just wait......
What does Dina Pearlman bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
At first, I found her abrasive and flat - then I realized that was Micki's character. Perlman actually develops a broad range of characters, from the perfect mother, the gruff father, to her insane brother. She is excellent at creating a whole character with her voice. The more I listened, the more I appreciated her characterization of Micki.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
There is a moment in the book where she realizes that at times, her difference from others allows her to see truth more clearly. I don't want to spoil the story by going into detail, but it has to do with the cat that she let run out of the apartment. I was horrified, yet understood her plight, realizing that she was different, and unless she wanted to prolong suffering, others were going to see her difference and be horrified at what they were witnessing.
