As other reviewers mentioned... This book is full of characters that are near impossible to like. Also the narrator makes a lot of lip smacking mouth noises that were irritating. I also cringed every time he did a female voice. Other then a few twists and a little mystery there was very little going for it.
The Wolf Posse
The author's use of metaphors.
The detective, can't remember his name.
The old man who walked the neighborhood.
My main reaction was one of disgust for the protagonist who was so weak willed, so lacking in any kind of courage or conviction, so full of self pity and self loathing. The people in his community were also less than endearing. If this is what it's like to be part of an affluent society in the South, where people live the lives their fathers demand of them and worry constantly about public perception, then I'm glad to have never reached that level of income.
The thing that kept me going in this story was the skill of the author. I was so sick of the resentment and self absorbed hostility of the main characters that I almost gave up on it. Fortunately, people evolved towards the end which is what always makes for a good story. Good character development. The narration was good but not always enough distinction between characters.
this was a real mystery, everyone was suspect until the last half hour. I did not figure it out, which was a delightful surprise. I hate predictable books. This book was not full of bloody details...people were killed with finesse. The characters were well rounded and fully developed. All in all, an interesting "read".6
This was a very good listen. The characters were well developed and the storyline was good. the ending was also not predictable. Performance was also quite good. Recommended.
Not finished but so far, holding my interest.
There are sessions/chapters, that it's gets a bit annoying listening to the reader swallow,hear the spittle collected and breathing. Have to really try and tune it out but I've heard worse.
Tell a story! This book couldn't seem to figure out what it was about. Characters popped out of nowhere. I was constantly thinking who's this, where'd they came from?
Bottom line I couldn't bother to finish
I write romantic suspense with a little southern grit. I love romance & adventure w/a little mystery & suspense. I believe in happy endings.
Family dynamics, murder and a little southern charm come together to throw you off the scent of what's really going on. Young love is pitted against greed, honor must stand in the wake of bigotry, can a kind hearted lawyer prove his innocence without putting those he loves in harm's way?
John Hart weaves a heart wrenching story of innocence lost, lives built on lies, finding strength at the end hope and faith when all seems at its worst. A truly magnificent story!
It took a long time for this story to really get going. For a while I wasn't sure if I would finish but finally the story took on a life of it's own. This is a new author for me and after listening I would likely try another of his books, but likely only on sale to begin with.
The lead character is an idiot and deserves to be shot. There is nothing about this book at all interesting. When I find myself in a book that I don't like the narration speed increases.
By the time I was a third of the way into this mess I was on 3x and would not have left it on if I wasn't watching a baseball game
