I was expecting a lot from this book after reading reviews, and by the end, I was satisfied with my purchase. However, maybe I was just really distracted at the beginning of this book, but it took about four attempts to get through the first part of the book and really into the story.
Listening to the narrator swallow and slurp through an otherwise great novel was a very difficult experience. Chiefs is a well written and very interesting story but Mark Hammer nearly drove me to take tranquilizers to get through it. I wouldn't have done it if the story wasn't worth it.
Yes. Though I was expecting the story to be a crime mystery about missing persons, it was a story about entrenched race inequality in Georgia from the 1920's to the 1960's. The missing persons was a thin thread through the story.
Good. I love those deep, slow, southern voices.
Nothing exceptional; just a good story and a fine retelling of the race struggles in the deep south; replete with the local Sheriffs and Mayors belonging to the KKK and blacks in the courtroom balcony, An American story that''s been told many times in many ways.
Say something about yourself!
i enjoyed this book enough for me to keep wondering what will happen next. worth the download
It was a little slow getting started, but once I got into this I couldn't quit listening. Really great story.
At last a book about the South that was narrated by a performer with a true Southern accent! The story was entrancing & I did not want the book to end.
I thought it amazing that this was his first book. It is extremely well written and entertaining. I thought the narration was quite good as well. Although it seemed that the same voice was used for a number of different characters, it was still easy to follow the narration. I would definitely recommend this book.
