Powerful, eloquent, and paced like the most riveting of thrillers, Strange Piece of Paradise is the electrifying account of Terri's investigation into the mystery of her near murder. A startling profile of a psychopath, a sweeping reflection on violence and the myth of American individualism, and a moving record of a brave inner journey from violence to hope, this searing, unforgettable work is certain to be one of the most talked about books of the year.
"This powerful memoir...moves with great skill back between the year of the attack and the years of her investigation." (Los Angeles Times)

Strange Piece of Paradise--a compelling listen!
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
I have recommended this book to friends. It tells a true tale, both horrifying and remarkable. The author, Terri Jentz, faces the demon who attacked her and her friend, in college, and whose specter haunted her for many years. She pursues him with tenacity and confronts him and the justice system that chose to look the other way.
Who was your favorite character and why?
The author was my favorite character; it was she whose determination made the outcome possible.
What about Margaret Colin’s performance did you like?
The reader was fine; good and clear. She has a pleasing voice and I never had to rewind to hear what she had said.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
No, the story was far too long to hear in one sitting.

Gruesome and captivating real life account
At 1st I was not in love with the narrators voice, but I grew to like it and accept her as the true story teller. This was a great book if you've been into podcasts like "Serial," or "Up and Vanished." Real life search for a man that ran over her with a truck and chopped her with a hatchet. Recommend.
