Notes on an Execution
“If this book is trying to show the senselessness of violence against women and critique the ways that society is fascinated by serial killers, it succeeds....The two narrators Mozhan Marno and Jim Meskimen were both excellent. I often avoid literature via audiobook and veer more towards romance for ease of listening. But the writing was so strikingly good and the narrators so excellent that I was really drawn into the audio. All in all, I highly recommend this complex, heavy, and fascinating study of the paths our lives take and the unexpected ways that they veer and intersect.”Julie, Pocket Books Shop

With each passing chapter, the story morphs and expands; masterfully carried along by Darnielle's incredible writing and nuanced characters.
