I have been a James Lee Burke fan, however, I couldn't make it through this audio book. The reader was so monotone and slow speaking that I found myself falling asleep. I cant tell whether the book was good or not. First book that I couldn't finish.
I bought this book while looking to listen to something new. I had not heard of James Lee Burke. I was pleasantly surprized- this stories contain such wordy details that you can see where his character is and actually smell the rain coming in the wind.
I have now read some of his other works with his other main characters. The same sensations can be found there as well.
Listened to it while at the gym. Excellent for that purpose. I would highly recommend it for entertainment
I'll start with the good. First off, I love a good murder mystery and this one had some good twists and turns to it. I absolutely LOVED Will Patton as the narrator. I got about halfway through the story, I think, because of Will Patton giving each character their own voice. Who needs video when the author and narrator paints such a vivid picture. A very vivid picture. I kept hoping I could get past the coarse language. Language that was quite appropriate to the setting. I found that as much as I wanted to hear the rest of the story, I just couldn't do it.
I would recommend Burke to all, cause I like his portrait of people and places
I've read several of Burke
He is one of best narrator I've heard
Patton is blessed with the ability to make all characters find their individual voices. Gotta love Clete Purcell but Dave is beautifully proffered and performed by Patton. I would listen to any book narrated by WP and would defer listening to any of JLB's works not done by Patton.
I can't hear it.
I can't hear it. It does not download on my Kindle 2. I was not told this.
I will cancel soon. You need to inform consumers what Kindle audio works on.
My Uncle Joe recommended James Lee Burke to me, and he was right. I love the character and the setting (New Orleans). A great story! Can't wait to hear more.
The plot did keep me on the edge of my seat. I really had no idea where the story was going. All I knew was that I needed to keep listening to find out.
Yes I have been in New Orleans and that is how I saw the city in some ways
it ended fine
yes he did a great job
This is the best audio book I have listened to. It was great, and the performance by Will Patton was superb.
This book stands alone. I could not compare it with any other.
No, but I have two others in my library and I just hope they are as good as this one.
I couldn't stop listening. It puts you right there in the story.
It was just great.
