What was one of the most memorable moments of Summit Lake?
When Becca's murderer sits down with the letter she wrote to her unborn daughter. The one thing I regret about this book is that it brings up the letter quite a few times but never says what the letter says but I guess anyone who has or ever thought about having children can kind of fill in the blanks.
What does Shannon McManus bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
I thought she did a very good job narrating. I have listened to her narration of other books and I think this may be her best performance.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Maybe not in one sitting but I did listen to it in one day.
Any additional comments?
I thought this was a very good book. I've looked at some of the other reviews that say it's a novel or unique idea but I really didn't see it that way. To me this book is the classic love triangle. The book makes the murdered girl kind of a flirt so the third party to the triangle although kind of predictable could possibly be another. There is a lot of secrecy surrounding this girl and the relationship she has with her baby's father. There are a few things that happened that made no sense to me whatsoever (i.e.: the victim left her diary/journal at a local cafe and instead of turning it over to the police the shop owner hid in in one of her cookbooks...HUH?). Anyway I did like the writing style, the book moves along at a pretty good pace. I liked the way the author go back and forth between past and present and did not find it at all confusing. With each new chapter he says the number of months or week or day before the murder. Or in the case of the investigative reporter he stated how long since the murder. He also gives the reporter a similar but not the same kind of story of her own which makes her look at this case a little more personal and I think with more empathy.
I purchased this book on sale for $4.95 and it is certainly worth that.
I would RECOMMEND this book especially if you read this review while it is still on sale.
