the art of quiet pleasure
Greg Iles is one of my favorite authors. I recently purchased "The Devil's Punchbowl".I could not get too far into it due to the narrator, Dick Hill. I deleted the book after purchasing it because of Dick Hill. His accent (real or faked) was not easy to follow, his slow pace of speaking was annoying, and he drops his voice at inprotant words and makes it hard to understand.Before i purchase another book, I will check that Dick Hill is NOT the narrator.
Any book narratated by Dick Hill.
Didn't get that much into it because of Dick HIll's narration.
Please don't let Dick Hill narrate any more good books!!!
provocative, suspenseful, courageous
Penn Cage - good true blue hero type, with a few character flaws
I started this book with high expectations, but the pace is so draggy. Things are described in such minute detail that they kill any progress in the plot, if there was any to begin with.
I quit after the first part.
Dick Hill did a great job. Book was very well written and had a hard time turning it off. The hardest part was listening to the detail descriptions of the dog fighting and the suffering of the animals. Had to fast forward through some of those but thankful those parts were few.
The book gets a little long at times but I always love Dick Hill. I know some people are writing reviews saying they don't like him but you are reading a book about the south and he does southern accents very well. His reading really immerses me in the south.
I am looking forward to the next Penn Cage book in early 2011.
This is my 2nd Greg Iles book and I did enjoy it. His ability to write thrillers is indeed a talent. I also enjoyed Dick Hill's narration. I think this one is worth the credit.
