SERIAL (Podcast)

In Baltimore, 1999, a high school senior was murdered.  Her ex-boyfriend was convicted of her death, and as he sits in prison, he still maintains his innocence.  Koenig seeks the truth.

I really enjoyed walking through this story.  All my questions weren't answered to my liking, but most were addressed.  This was a great way to get realistic detective work without the gore that many books describe.  On the other hand, it is disappointing because it IS realistic and not all angles or events are clear cut.

There will be a Season Two with a new case later this year.  Can't wait.

Thoughts of Joy


  1. I only very recently heard about this. It does sound interesting. I am not a big audiobook/podcast listener, so I'm not sure what my chances will be of listening--but it's one to keep in mind if I am able to catch it.

    1. Literary Feline ~ I can't wait for the next one. I love the very authentic way in which she approaches the case.

  2. I just got this downloaded and started listening this morning. So far, so good!

    1. Les ~ Yay! I still think about it on occasion. I look forward to your thoughts. If you don't post about it, let me know via email. Please. :)


Thank you for taking the time to comment. :)

I hope you have a great day and ...
Happy Reading!
