The Listener by Christina Dodd

The Listener - By (author) Christina Dodd

What can I say? It was a good story, although narrated through the eyes of a character I just couldn't connect to. Cornelia Markum seemed more of an automaton, than a person. Yes, she's a character in a book, but that doesn't mean a story from her point of view should feel so unemotional, detached, and rather inhuman.

The murder plot could've been much less predictable, and the outcome as well. Even though it was a short story everything, characterization and plot, could've been done better.
