Heartbreaking. Tragic. Disgusting. Horrific. Are all words that come to mind to describe this one. This book sinks its claws into your emotions and proceeds to rip your heart out.
As for the format, I was encouraged to listen to the audiobook as this one is quite unique with a podcast element, so I read along in the physical book with the podcast playing. I liked this format as sometimes I listen to true-crime podcasts, which was a familiar medium and made it seem more realistic. I can’t speak to how it would be reading the podcast bits from the pages, but the audiobook served this format well, and I’d recommend it.
