Listener Opinions

    " I read this book in no time. It's just like a long poem. Amazing. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Colleen | 1/11/2014

    " It was gross is all I can remember. Looking back, though a school book, it's not something a 15-year-old should be reading. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Elizabeth Egan | 12/25/2013

    " This based on a true story story is gripping, heartbreaking and repulsive all at once, as only Oates can pull off in a slender book where every word counts as every second did during the actual events. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Starlet Laura | 12/2/2013

    " I started listening to this book for over an hour and I had to stop as I couldn't tell if the narrator was supposed to be talking as though under water or if it was my electronics. Because I love all of Joyce Carol Oates writings, I decided to start from scratch. I'm glad I did because I then got into the story and found it to be quite gripping and telling. "

    " JCO month: Done. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Diana | 11/24/2013

    " An eye-opening, fictionalized look into the Kennedy scandal. I wrote a paper on this book in high school and I still feel its impact. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marti | 11/21/2013

    " lyrical, murky, memorable. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bianca | 11/13/2013

    " I don't know about this one. I finished it in an hour--which meant it kept me going. But it did make me so depressed that I had to stare our the window of the house for a few minutes. Then I found out it is a true story!!!! I gotta go sit by the window again. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Josie | 11/6/2013

    " Fantastic psychlogical portrait into what might make someone leave a woman behind in a Chappaquidic-like accident. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mary Ann | 10/29/2013

    " Fictional version of the Chappaquiddick accident, told from the point of view of the victim. Fascinating. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Danielle Mathieson | 6/9/2013

    " "As the black water filled her lungs, and she died." "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Liesl | 11/30/2007

    " Disappointing, especially given the intriguing real-life source material. Written in a stream of consciousness style where entire paragraphs consisted of one long run-on sentence, which was annoying and difficult to read at times. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Edward Creter | 12/7/2006

    " Joyce is The Girl! At 73 she's still cranking 'em out and still rocks! She's my kinda writer! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Connie | 8/31/2006

    " Visceral. This novel is like an abstract painting; it creates a raw experience as much as it tells a story. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Charlie | 5/23/2005

    " Written with exceptional rhythm and control. "

    " I love this book. It is my favorite book in the whole world. This was the first book that made me realize that fiction is an art form. Beautifully written, haunting, liberating and personal. Everyone should read this book. "

    " Awful book, don't waste your time. "
