Amazing. Story was phenomenal, engaging, always on edge. the narrator was equally as magnificent and brought each character to life.
I am an American lawyer (soon to be) and this book will undoubtedly in my "classic collection"- ie will read/hear more than two or three times.
The story itself was solid. But both the characters and the ending let it down for me. Perhaps it's because all the macho crap was lost on me. I felt there was little diversity in the personalities of the different characters. The ending was another let down. Such a build up, and then to end on such a passive note. I don't understand the hype.
It is astounding to read that the current social tensions in the country are not far away from those back in the mid 80's.
Still a remarkable story! The performance was terrific. One of the best Audible titles. Listen!
awesome book, hard to follow at first. once started the story was incredible. would recommend to anyone. the inclusion of all aspects of financial stability made it worthwhile.
The narrator's exaggerated Black dialect freaked me out a little, but once I overcame that, I enjoyed the story. I enjoyed the evolution (devolution?) of the main character.
such great detail and wordsmithing and the narrator was fantastic!....the girl with brown lipstick, the lion of dunning spunget, the lord of the pampas!
In the beginning I wasn't sure if I'd really like it since it took a little while to start for me but once it did it was addictive. Every character from the judge to Reverend Bacon to Sherman felt real and brilliant. The narrator was genuinely awesome with his sultry woman's voice to opera shrill to his greasy wise guy voice; it all added to the experience beautifully. A++
