Yes. I grew up in a lot of the areas JLB writes about and it is like transporting in time. I never want to live there again, but it is a quick way to visit and be entertained.
Yes, and he is good at all of them.
Yes, but my lifestyle does not allow it. But I listen at night as an alternative to TV
Keep writing JLB
The action is very quick, I found myself wanting to find ways to get back to it
Very much so, and the twists in the plot are very well thought out.
I bought this as a spur of the moment discounted item and was very glad I did. Will did a great job. And I think i've found a new performer to look forward to.
I spend so much time driving on business trips or suffering in boring exercise. For over 40 years I dreamed of something like Audible.
Some novels I read, some I Audible. After a cousin recommended James Lee Burke, I decided to try the first of Burke's Dave Robicheaux series in Audible. It was very well done and very colorful. I've found that in adding Cajun culture to most anything American makes it a little better.
Note: I'm not Cajun.
Unfortunately the next book in the series is only available in abridged format. I believe that it was Pat Conroy who said "Abridged books are an abomination onto God."
So the next one I'll read.
Flow of the story through well portrayed characters.
My first...he did a fine job.
Kept me on the edge of my seat.
Once more the Poet Laureate of New Iberia gives us nasty people doing heinus deeds in beautiful southern Louisiana.And who better to tell the tale than Dave Robicheaux himself, Will Patton.
Over the road truck Driver listen to books to make the miles go by.
Will Patton is Dave. I've only listenend to one of Burke's books read by someone else and he did not do it justice.
While the prose can be beautifully lyrical at times, there are quite a few 'cut and paste' moments where you feel that you've heard this just a few chapters before. Granted there is quite a bit of violence, but this isn't as disconcerting as the missing pieces of plot. Often, the reader feels as though they've missed something. The narrator does a good job with the Southern accents and is very consistent with the character voices. I've heard excellent things about the rest of the series and if not absolutely necessary, I likely wouldn't read this novel before starting the rest.
This is second Dave Robicheau Novel I have tried and I have not liked either one. Normally I like this genre but apparently not James Lee Burke.
Mr. Patton's Cajun accent slurs to the point of incomprehension his
