Catch and Kill: Lies, Spies, and a Conspiracy to Protect Predators by: Ronan Farrow ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
The first night I started this audiobook, my attention was captured! I know a tiny bit about the background of Harvey Weinstein, but I wouldn’t say I’m an expert at all so all of this information was new to me and I could not believe my ears! Seriously, the first night alone, I listened to the first 40% of the book and I think my jaw was on the ground for the majority of this audiobook!
But as I kept returning to it over the course of the next few days, my interest started waning. It kind of felt repetive and drug out…though those issues could be related to my attention span. I also found Farrow’s different accents and voices totally irritating…and it started detracting from the story for me. I can’t put my finger on exactly what lost my interest, but I found it a struggle just to finish.
Catch and Kill fulfills the True Crime category for the Nonfiction Reading Challenge.
