PEOPLE WHO EAT DARKNESS

Author:  Richard Lloyd Parry
Genre:  True Crime, Standalone
Published:  2011
Personal Rating:  3.25/5 (just okay +)
Format/Narrator:  Audiobook/Simon Vance
Yearly Count:  36


Lucie Blackman, at the age of 21, moves to Toyko to work for a few months to pay off her debts.  She never returns home.

This unfortunate, true story could have been told in half the amount of pages/hours.  It dragged so many times for me that there were times when I lost interest.  Not to say there weren't interesting parts -- there were.  Those were what kept me going.  Ultimately, I'm glad to be done and moving on.
