Worst book; great reader

Written by Carol in SD from San Diego, CA on January 15th, 2012

This was one of the worst books I've heard. I particularly like the reader but, unfortunately, it was a without plot and poorly written.

Great Crime Story

Written by Peggy Stortz on July 31st, 2010

  • Book Rating: 4/5

Lush Life is a riveting story of a homicide in NYC weaving the tales of the killer, the witnesses, the detectives and the victim's family. Sometimes it was difficult to keep all of the characters straight, but ultimately it was worth the effort.

Although I think the title of this story was poorly chosen, the story was an enjoyable listen and I cared about the main characters even though they weren't perfect people. I thought the narrators did a great job.
