Summary

It's 1979. Seventeen-year-old Alice Pearson can't wait to graduate from high school and escape the small town in upstate New York where she grew up.
Alice and her three closest friends meet the enigmatic Jack Wyck. Enticed by his philosophy and the promise of a constant party, Alice and her friends join Mr. Wyck's small group of devoted followers. Their idyll takes an increasingly sinister turn. Mr. Wyck's grand scheme goes wrong, culminating in a night of horrific murders.
Twenty years later, Alice is a professor of folklore, but an acclaimed filmmaker threatens to expose her secret past when he begins making a documentary about Jack Wyck's crimes and the cultlike following that he continues to attract even from his prison cell.

Blind Leading the Blind

What made the experience of listening to The Singing Bone the most enjoyable?

Narrator was really good, loved how the story was similar to the Manson Family. Kind of gave you an idea of what its like to be involved in a situation that gets out of control.

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

Yes, most definitely.

Which character – as performed by Hillary Huber – was your favorite?

Alice and Trina

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

No extreme reactions like crying or laughing just sadness that a fateful meeting with a manipulative person like Mr. Wycke can ruin the lives of so many, as in the case of Charles Manson.

Any additional comments?

Looks like the author left the book open to a sequel. I was unhappy with the fate of certain characters, I felt like there could've been a twist that would've served the plot well. But who knows, maybe the sequel (if there is one) is where the plot twists will come out.
