The book has more information and is way longer

Would you try another book from Ann Rule and/or Ann Rule?

No

What could Ann Rule have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Actually read the book she published...this not even three hour short story remake is an insult to the book she actually did write. The book contains way more information and leads you into the mind of Diane Downs. This audiobook barely scratch the surface.

Would you be willing to try another one of Ann Rule’s performances?

no

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Severe disappointment

Any additional comments?

I wish I could have my money back.

flat narration.

I enjoy Ann Rule's works most of the time, but this is the first time Ive heard her preform. It was pretty flat, monotone, and terrible. I enjoyed her other books read by others though. Wouldnt recommend this.
