Whether you loved it or hated it, Thirteen Reasons Why was a phenomenon that swept the beginning of 2017.

Join us as we delve into our personal opinions of Asher's novel, the pros/cons of it's audiobook, and how the character of Hannah Baker was used to portray such an emotional and heavy topic. WARNING: this episode contains an immense amount of opinion and emotion. Please be advised that suicide is a very serious issue and our intent was to showcase how delicate the subject matter is when its submersed in literature--not to mention young adult novels.

Narrated by Ann Marie Lee

May 01, 2017

AudioShelf is going to take you on a wild ride down South, where an investigation will take place to figure out if the audiobook for Sharp Objects by Gillian Flynn will be Shelved or Shoved. In true AudioShelf fashion, we will discuss how good Audiobooks tempt us with the urge to search for spoilers, reveal our opinions about literarily flawed women, and touch on how the "South" can be a character in itself when it comes to suspenseful murder mysteries. Join us to see if Sharp Objects' narrator, Ann Marie Lee, "makes the cut" as the troubling journalist who comes home to her Southern tiny town to report on two gruesome murders, ultimately bringing up past memories for her that you won't see coming.
