A great story told from many different points of view. The in depth character development makes you feel empathy even for some of the bad guys, as the bad guys come in so many different shades of gray. Ray Porter does an amazing job with all the different voices and accents.
I don't have English as my first language, but is very competent nonetheless. despite this I found the store somewhat hard to follow. Mostly because there's a Game of Thrones like list of characters that my brain couldn't handle. The book should be made into a movie at some point and I'll definitely watch that.
The narrator was very good. Book reads like a movie at times. Also very nice insights into the mind and thoughts of the drug smugglers.
I'd very much recommend this book. Especially if you feel competent in handling large scale, multi personal books.
With the exception of one torture/gruesome scene where I had to fast forward it for about 30 sec, I couldn't stop listening. I usually listen only in my car during my long commute but I found myself listening while cooking dinner and on the weekends. This was super suspenseful and the narrator was phenomenal. Highly recommend!!!
No. None of my friends could handle this book. I love mysteries and thrillers but this book was tough. I had to take breaks from it.
Some of Dennis Lehane's books have graphic violence, but none compare to this one.
Not sure what to say other than he brought the characters to life. I doubt I would have attempted to read the book.
The bridge scene was the worst of the worst.........had to come back to listen after that. But I had to come back because I had to know what was going to happen next.
This book just made me sad.
I actually listened to Cartel before I listen to this book and although The Power of the Dog is first in this story I'm glad I listened in that order. Every character in this book is compelling story is absolutely captivating from start to finish. And the narrator is perfect for the book thank you Don Winslow and thank you Ray Porter for bringing to life Art Keller, Nora and Adan Barrera.
