It’s a small state but a lot goes on there: Ocean State

by Stewart O’Nan

Narrated by Sara Young
#OceanState #NetGalley

I very much wanted to read/listen this book in part because I am originally from the Ocean State. The story sounded intriguing and multilayered.

Often in mysteries, there is a murder and the reader waits to find out “whodunnit.” In Ocean State, listeners know from the start that there was a murder and who committed the crime. The book goes on to tell the story of the family of the teen murderer from multiple points of view.

The narration for Ocean State is crisp and clear. The reader tells the story well.

I am sad to say though that I did not have enough time to hear the whole book before the expiration date. I will follow up by either purchasing or requesting this one from the library.

Many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher. All opinions are my own.

I love to read, recommend books and open the world of reading to others. I tutor to ensure that the next generation of readers will know the joys of a good book because their reading skills have improved. I am an avid reader, especially of mysteries and fiction. I believe that two of the world's greatest inventions were the public library and eyeglasses!
