Lullabies for Little Criminals
Lullabies for Little Criminals | Heather O'Neill
20 posts | 44 read | 32 to read
Written with powerful understatement and suffused with the painful rapture of growing up, this harrowing debut novel from a contributor to the influential radio program "This American Life" is the story of a 13-year-old girl who must face choices she is not ready to make.

This book was just a tragedy from beginning to the soul crushing middle and the end that implies everything will be fine but really leaves you with a deserted feeling. The end angered me for so many reasons.

This is one of those books that I have had on my TBR for years. I finally bought it, waited months to start it, got a quarter of the way through it than put it down. Now that I've also downloaded the audiobook, I've finished it in less than 24 hours. It was so good, and I'm sad that I waited so long to read it. Definitely recommend. ❤️

Sassy_Steph I've heard great things about this book!! 2y

Started the physical book a few months ago. I got about 1/4 way thru, and ended up getting distracted by another book. Figured I'd start the audiobook tonight. I've really liked it so far, and can't wait to finally finish it. 👌

Jazzper2 It's worth the read. 2y

42 ~ Lullabies for Little Criminals by Heather O'Neill (Kindle edition📱) ~ Started: 20.04.17 ~ Finished: 23.04.17
Rating: 5/5📚

This is the second book I have read by Heather O'Neill & she never fails to amaze me with her writing, the power of her writing. Baby, the main character & narrator is unforgettable.

Highly recommended

KellieRusselburg This was one of those books that I absolutely could not put down until I finished. 1y

Mehso-so

Appreciate gut wrenching story, but had to force myself to finish. Wasn't enjoying my reading time. Not bad writing, but maybe not the right book at the right time for me. Writing style was as if I was staring at a pretty pair of shoes, encrusted with actual star dust, catching the light of a thousand rainbows, but when I put my feet into them, they were the complete wrong size & shape. Painfully forced simile? Yeah. About five of those per page.

Apparently angels stomp on stairs. Didn't you know? I'm so tired of the lame similes. I need to be done with this book. Every time it sucks me back in, one of these stinkers drops. Ugh

Recent purchase ~ Lullabies for Little Criminals by Heather O'Neill (Kindle edition📱) On the basis of how much I am enjoying 'The Girl Who Was Saturday Night', I bought 'Lullabies for Little Criminals', I am really enjoying Heather O'Neill's style of writing.📚

Stuck in bed with the flu for three days so far, and I can now finally hold a book... and laughing hurts. Still, the best insult a kid can say is "your mother is a whore." Lmao.

My pick for child protagonists for #day16 of #photoadaynov16 is this award-winning book by Heather O'Neill. Baby's story is heartbreaking, raw and at times terrifically hard to read, but her voice is unforgettable and authentic. A book that could easily run off the rails, but holds together for a wild ride. Note: trigger warnings for child abuse and prostitution.

lisakoby Fabulous pick! 3y
Bibliogeekery Loved this book! 3y
Soubhiville Nice review, and what a grabbing title! TBR'd! 3y
Gleefulreader @lisakoby @Bibliogeekery Thanks! @Soubhiville Hope it does not disappoint! 3y
