I love to read and you must also, since you’re here! My 'currently-reading' list always includes a book I am reading as well as one I'm listening to. This blog, a labor of love and a constant work-in-progress, is a way for me to share my thoughts about what I've read; I'm not a pro but I am passionate! I have purposely not summarized plot lines because the people that do that professionally are so darn good at it. I hope you enjoy the opinions and musings you find here. Thank you for visiting!

There were parts of this that were very difficult for me to listen to becuase of the dog fighting element; although, I think that's testament to the talent of Iles. He can tell the story well enough to make you squirm sometimes. Conclusively, this is a good book; however, it's not my favorite from Iles. I don't love some of the characters. I think Kristen is largely a pain in the ass and the dichotomy between Penn Cage and tough guy Kelly whats-his-name is almost canned in its all too common/familiar formulaic set up.
