Life in HooterVille is GREAT!
The diverse character personification, both male and female, by this narrator was superb. Given the fact that the characters were portrayed with ample voice inflection, I can not help but wonder that the more monotonous tone employed buring story narration was by design as excessive inflection during story telling, can itself lead to monotony.
Listen to books EVERY DAY driving in Atlanta traffic! I love exciting non-fiction, mystery, series and lengthy books. Every once in a while I will listen to rock start autobiographies to break up the routine.
I could have done either for this book.
The ending and the matriarch being so sick. Hearing a son's love for his mother pour out in his grief. Touching.
His southern accent was a little "put on" and I find myself with a truer one.
This is the second version of this wonderful novel that I have heard, and it exceeded my expectations. My favorite part was the last chapter and the epilogue. The narrator – the second one I've heard do this story – was excellent. I had selected the story you shared with my wife, and she loved it as well. (Eric Schneider)
I read this book when it came out and am surprised how much I forgot. Maturity gave me a fresh perspective. It is a great ride still.
If you have any recollection of the Vietnam years, this will be an interesting fresh look from the point of view of college age southern boys and girls.
The second book I've read -and could not stop listening to - by Pat Conroy. The character development is superb and he brings to life and memory one of my favorite places in the world; Charleston, SC.
Pat Conroy's books are better with an authentic Chicago accent than a grating bad southern accent. This is a good book with a bad accent. Still enjoyable but I wish the narrator of Death iof Santini narrated all his books.
Every part of this book was excellent including the story, the narrator,it was fantastic. The only thing I wish is that you all would stop requiring a certain number of words. Excellent should just be good enough.
the writers style
I loved the intertwining of the base story with the underlying ones and the way they were revealed
