“We all make mistakes — some worse than others. But, I don’t think it’s fair to label a person for the worst mistake they ever made.”
Y’all. This book. WOW!! It’s definitely going on my list of favorite books for 2021 and I’ve already recommended it to every person who will listen to me, I’ve even debated on listening to it again. Keyword: listen. I was gifted the audio version of this book through Libro.FM and when I saw the audiobook had a full cast of narrators, I moved it to the top of my list. I was hooked on the first chapter and then quickly tried to find every reason to continue listening (my house was spotless, meals for made for the week, laundry was done and the yard was taken care of).
🗣 A full cast of narrators
👩🏽⚖️🕵🏽 LOVED the courtroom/police procedural/legal aspects
🎙 Genuinely felt like I was listening to a true-crime podcast
📖 Each chapter was an “episode”
😅 Follow the case from start to finish
🥺 That ending… IFYKYK but 🤯
I’ve seen a few reviews of Anatomy of Desire where people didn’t care for the format of the book (it’s written interview style). If you’ve read Daisy Jones & the Six, it’s very similar to that. While I didn’t mind that format, the way to read this book is to listen. Seriously. If you love true crime then this is the (fictional) true-crime podcast for you.
