Publisher's Summary

When Alice Salmon died last year, the ripples were felt in the news, on the Internet, and in the hearts of those who knew her best.
But the person who knows her most intimately isn't family or a friend. Professor Jeremy Cooke is an academic whose life has become about piecing together Alice's existence in all its flawed and truthful reality.
For Cooke, faithfully recreating Alice's life - through her diaries, emails, and anything using her voice - is all-consuming. He does not know how deep his search will take him or the shocking nature of what he will uncover.

Muddled and muddling

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

I usually like multiple readers, but not in this case. The primary narrator was sludgy and really difficult to listen to. It didn't help that his character was slimy. The others were breaths of fresh air. I couldn't finish because I was confused about who was who, and found myself not caring enough about who done it or what was done, to continue hearing that grating narration.

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

It's always frustrating when a book isn't satisfying in any way.

Terrible book

What disappointed you about What She Left?

Only listened to first hour and 15 minutes approx. and just could NOT get into the book at all. Nothing about it interested me and made me want to continue.

What could T R Richmond have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

I have no clue ...

What didn’t you like about the narrators’s performance?

Just couldn't get into it so may not have been the narrator … just the story line.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from What She Left?

didn't listen to enough to comment

Any additional comments?

Others in my book club started it and took it back to the library so we decided to drop it and choose another book.
