Method 15/33 by Shannon Kirk
Narrator: Allyson Ryan, Greg Watanabe
Date Read: September 2015
Imagine a helpless, pregnant 16-year-old who's just been yanked from the serenity of her home and shoved into a dirty van. Kidnapped Alone Terrified.
Now forget her ...
Picture instead a pregnant, 16-year-old, manipulative prodigy. She is shoved into a dirty van and, from the first moment of her kidnapping, feels a calm desire for two things: to save her unborn son and to exact merciless revenge.
She is methodical, calculating, scientific in her plotting. A clinical sociopath? Leaving nothing to chance, secure in her timing and practice, she waits for the perfect moment to strike. "Method 15/33" is what happens when the victim is just as cold as the captors.
The agents trying to find a kidnapped girl have their own frustrations and desires wrapped into this chilling drama. In the twists of intersecting stories, one is left to ponder. Who is the victim? Who is the aggressor? "

Read It/Rate It Review: Other than a rather anti-climatic ending, I really enjoyed Method 15/33 by Shannon Kirk. I felt that the end just didn’t hold up to the fantastic storytelling up to that point. I am such an ender that it really did kind of disappoint me. That being said, this book told a fantastic twisty tale!
Narrated By Greg Watanabe, Allyson Ryan / Length: 9 hrs and 33 mins
Greg and Allyson did a fantastic job with the narration. I liked the rawness they brought to the characters. It worked really well.

During her non-reading time you can find her hanging with her rescue furr children named after book characters: Lizzie a beautiful cattle dog mix (Pound Pup), Cinder a beautiful Shep/Pitt mix (Pound Pup), and Minerva a beautiful Shep/Pitt mix (Foster Fail). Gathering with friends and family, attending conventions, watching movies/tv shows, rooting for the 49rs, and crocheting.
