Impressive storytelling and a great performance by the reader giving characters distinct voices. A brilliant plot that sucks you in.
Exciting, heartbreaking, and captivating. The Power of the Dog moves quickly as Winslow builds up each character until they are fully fleshed out in the fast paced, brutally consequential world he has created. The language and violence might not be for everybody but felt realistic and necessary for the story.
Deep and entertaining story, well-developed and complicated characters, and excellent pacing. Despite the outlandishness of some of the characters, actions, and events in the story, it's truly shocking how many of them actually happened in real-life.
Well worth a read if you're an action/crime/procedural buff or if the topic holds any interest for you.
I'm sure it was a great story and the performance was fine but listening to the graphic descriptions of torture and killing was just not something I could stomach. Made it through a couple hours and called it quits.
Bought the sequel to this book "The Cartel" when it was on sale on a whim. I am usually a fan of nonfiction books. Was so amazed by The Cartel had to buy this book instantly after finishing it!
Depressing, sprawling, epic, and periodically intense. It isn't quite the God father, but it is in the same ball park. I guess the best way to put it is it is the God father for drug trafficking with more graphic and horrific violence and with more graphic doggie style.
It's still worth listening to. Very suspenseful and good narration. Great insight into the world of drug trafficking
