Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mairead | 2/17/2014

    " Creepy and so well done. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Erica | 1/30/2014

    " This was a weird one. I really appreciated the author's skill with the unreliable narrator, and she weaved in a lot of historical stuff on cannibalism that was interesting. But ultimately, the main character is kind of annoying. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Maria | 1/20/2014

    " I had a very strange experience with this book. As I was reading certain scenes, I KNEW what would happen next, almost as if I had read it before. Then I realized that I had read this book before, probably when it came out. But it took me over half the book before I recognized it! I've never forgotten about a book so completely as this one, so although it was pretty good, I'm lowering it a star for sheer forgettable-ness. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Bob | 1/17/2014

    " Three words: Disturbing... Depressing... Bizarre. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tegan | 1/16/2014

    " Fantastic and a perhaps unsettling. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Arshia | 12/29/2013

    " The ending was a little unsatisfactory. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jen | 12/26/2013

    " While I definitely found the book entertaining I had a hard time caring about any of the characters. The only character that had any depth was the narrator and she was... interesting. Still I enjoyed the story and thought it was a lot of fun to read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Wildwomble | 12/25/2013

    " A dark slice of psychological fiction. It is strangely cinematic - the scenes were vivid and the sinister mood is palpable. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Laurie | 12/24/2013

    " Interesting story, nothing to write home--or a review--about. Rather dark. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jeanette | 12/2/2013

    " An interesting fiction book about a serial killer, art history and her travels around the US. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amy | 11/30/2013

    " The woman who narrates this book knows her cannibal history. How that's relevant becomes clear. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Kerri | 11/25/2013

    " I like the idea of a modern Gothic novel, but this reads like a first draft someone didn't feel like revising. I didn't find it especially literary despite what some of the reviews led me to believe. Most people in our book club had a hard time finding a copy. Now I know why. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sharon | 11/3/2012

    " Very hard to peg, because it was very well-crafted but incredibly disturbing. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Paintmyfaceoff | 3/27/2012

    " Amoung other things, I liked that she named her dog Kevin. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jess | 12/31/2011

    " I loved this book, but I acknowledge that the writing wasn't stellar. It was a good read, though, and I did learn a lot about the history of cannibals. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sassacaia | 10/20/2011

    " What a crazy roller coaster ride of a story. Well-written and completely unpredictable... I haven't been that enthralled in quite some time. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Anthony | 8/28/2011

    " I have both read and listened to the audio version of this book. It's creepy and bizarre and I love it. I will probably read it again someday. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Keeley | 11/28/2009

    " This book was not at all what I was expecting when I purchased it. Compelling, though. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Zondershelby Arts | 6/28/2009

    " Kind of a funny book for a vegan as it centers around cannibalism... but enjoyed it in some perverse way. The character is as likeable as she is flawed. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sharon | 6/2/2009

    " Very hard to peg, because it was very well-crafted but incredibly disturbing. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bekah | 8/1/2008

    " What a fabulous author! The author writes small stories within the story that all leads up to the twist at the end. She does a very good job!!! I loved her style. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Pamels | 6/16/2008

    " This book has some great dialogue. Such as:

    "I know enough about you to know that I know enough about you."

    "With a fifty-dollar bill in his hand, he was almost handsome."

    "Love is the new hate." "

    " Poor writing style. Good general concepts but I couldn't get over the predictable plot and messy writing. "
