I actually found the unabridged version really annoying, "virgil said, blah", "Oquist said blah", "blah, said Virgil" CONSTANTLY - annoying. Other than that, the story was pretty good, but not the best i've heard.
The way Virgil is able to get people to talk to him with his own special personality is always a treat to witness.
At the end when you realize that Virgil is alone and seems to be troubled about the woman who has obviously captured his attention
Yes. The performances are always superb.
This book wasn' as heart pounding with excitement the way "Bad Blood" or "Heat Lightning" was, but it is still a very worthwhile read. I still highly recommend the entire series.
Yes, Sanford is a great story-teller and myster writer
Virgil...'cause he's Virgil...
Only sore point: Sanford feels like we all need a continuing lesson in the
Virgil Flowers is far more interesting then Sandford's other characters. I would like to see the Prey books focus on Flowers more.
Virgil Flowers. He is just a normal layed back kind of guy with a knack for putting together small facts to solve very confusing situations.
I am rarely seen without my headphones on and my iPod clipped on my waist. I love my books.
I have to say that this book was just ok for me. I usually can't wait for John Sanford's next book. I hope the next one is up to his high standards and not so meteoric.
This is a well thought out story. Not exactly fast paced as some of his novels but excellent. Can't wait for the next one.
Listened to this book on an 850 mile car journey. Loved every minute of it. Made the trip time seem to cut in half
Story was ok but gratuitous use of balls and references of erections made me think either John Sandford is obsessed with male genitalia or he's reverted to jr. high school. I'm no longer a fan.
This is definitely NOT up to Sanford's past standards. I wish I waited until the $4.95 special. It is unimaginative, characters are lame, too much from the narrator -"he said ' she said'. The flow of the reading is choppy and irritating to listen to. Thumbs down for JS this time.
loved Black Irish
always a good story writer, Sandford changed his Virgil Flowers to a different persona.
Virgil is always called "that f--king flowers" But in this book he doesnt. Makes
him somewhat boring.
