In politics, nothing happens by accident. If it happens, you can bet it was planned that way. ~ FDR
Last week, I completed book 6 of 20 for my 2019 reading challenge. Goodreads says I’m 3 books behind. Thanks for the reminder, goodreads. I’m feeling a comeback in my future for the month of July. Alice Isn’t Dead was the last audio book I completed. I’m not sure how I stumbled on this title. This book felt like I was listening to an audio X-Files or Twilight Zone episode. I’m not sure what I was expecting, but and an audio book with conspiracies wasn’t it. There are several plot twists I didn’t see coming. I have a theory about the ending, but I don’t want to spoil it for anyone that’s going to rush right out to see if their library or favorite bookstore has a copy. This book was so unexpectedly shocking, the British Hubby started reading a copy and finished it in three days.
The main character, Alice, is looking for her wife Keisha. Keisha was/is a truck driver that disappeared. Everyone believed Keisha was dead, but not Alice. The book follows Alice’s journey to unearth the true story behind Keisha’s disappearance along with Alice’s crippling anxiety attacks.
One aspect of this book that makes it so amazing is the alternate ending and podcast. How many times have you finished a book only to be disappointed in the last five pages? Alice Isn’t Dead wasn’t that for me, but maybe you’ll enjoy the alternate ending more. It’s not often we’re given an option along with a podcast. Seriously, why are you still reading my blog and not this book? It is possible I enjoyed this audio book more because it wasn’t what I expected. I guess you’ll have to read it to find out.
