This was a enjoyable listen, but I didn't like that some.of her chapters came.off as kink shaming. But outside of that I thought the book was thought provoking and enjoyable.

This was a fun, whip smart read about two strong women detectives who run a private investigator firm in 1940's NY. It was.really well done as an audiobook. Recommend. I am looking forward to reading more in this series. Can't wait to read the next book

Wow what a story about this man's lifem. I am glad I listened to this as it was narrated by Will himself. A lot of self reflection went into this book and it was very thought provoking. Would recommend.

Just got home and just opened my #BestOf2021Swap #BestOf2021 and I can't say THANKYOU Enough to @Avanders everything in this package is absolutely perfect. I love the books love the candle, the reading socks seem super cozy. And I will use them tomorrow. Can't wait to dig into all of the books Sanderson has been on my "Author to read eventually list" for sometime so I am very excited about that. Thank you again for everything.

rsteve388 @Avanders where did you get that pretty silver paper?! It's gorgeous. 3w
Avanders Yay!! I‘m so glad you like everything 😄♥️🎆 Oh the paper — that was a 2020 find at The Container Store — I‘m a bit obsessed with wrapping paper 🤭 3w
rsteve388 I have one of those stores here in CO. 3w

What a great read for 2022. It's wonderful, fast moving story that grabs you and won't let go. So enthralling and engaging. Truly an excellent story. Thus book also has elements of white fragility, white feminism and racism that can't be denied or looked away from. Excellent story overall. 5 ⭐

This is a dark story about how ones men's actions cause him to rely on others as well as how his last behavior and treatment of women are his downfall. This is indeed a MeToo book and it's message is very clear, that a reckoning is coming for people who continue to.abuse their privilege and power. Very well done. It was dark and sinister. 4 Stars.

This was an interesting take on the Trojan war and moved women into the spotlight. It was well done but I thought it would be better with multiple narrators for the Audiobook. But I did love the back and forth between all the different women who were experiencing the fall of Troy and how the gods play with the humans who worshipped them.

This was a wonderful story that holds a mirror up to show how the past impacts and reflects the future of what black.people.have been dealing with since time immoral. Loved the narrator. Pushed through a lot of parts that made me uncomfortable. Because it's important to be uncomfortable when hearing stories of injustice.

The book had layers upon layers of.issues and twists and turns I didn't see coming, I thought it was thoroughly engrossing and it kept me.engaged. it brought up so many questions about ethics of cloning, identity, what makes us who we are? Issues of women wanting a career vs a family. Excellent read. Loved it. 5 ⭐
