Valiant Effort in Otherwise Melodramatic Read

The narrators were great considering the sappily melodramatic dialogue and language used by the characters. For me, they were really the only bright spot in the story. I totally understand and admire what the author obviously wanted to do with this story but the whole thing came off too sensationalist, too melodramatic, and too emotionally manipulative with alot of tokenism thrown in for a short at diversity. All these things took away from what could have possibly been a very dark, gritty, and heart wrenching read if only a decent amount of realism and less purple prose was thrown into the narrative of events.

Painful Listen

Don't waste your money, even at the sale price. This was a melodramatic dud at best. The characters are very hard to relate to and the use of their communication via social media added nothing to the story.

I was hoping for a suspenseful and gritty psychological thriller. Instead the author took me through a highly dramatized slew of useless dialogue and poorly written emotional scenes. I hope somebody can take this idea and write something worth the listen/read.
