If you're familiar with James Lee Burke's novels, then I have only to say that it is another in the same line and tradition. Will Patton does an admirable job of reading; I can't imagine anyone doing better for the characters...and I grew up in South Louisiana. In my view, this is one of his best novels, right after Tin Roof Blowdown.
the great description of the environment and people
great as always
no I always want to spread out the grand experience which can be difficult some times
Liked the story line, was easy to follow, not a lot of twists and turns.
Mr. Burke's stories are becoming more and more political.
I was almost afraid to jump into the series at the 19 th book. But I was able to get into the characters and enjoyed the action. Loved Tom Paxton as the narrator. Very detailed at times I thought it was a little to lenghty. I will be reading his next installment .
The narration in the New Orleans accent made this book special. It's a good story, but too much description of New Orleans and and the environs. too many words, get to the point, tell the story!Not interested in all the flowers, trees, sky...Enuf is enuf.
Robicheaux.. He is sensitive, compassionate and the kind of character you get to like.
The way they speak in N.O. All of the characters had a special voice and way of talking, it made me feel like I was there with them.
I have listened to over 250 books in the last 10 years. I tend to listen to certain authors and try to read all their books. I listen while exercising and driving which makes the time past enjoyable.
If you have read James Lee Burke previously, this is his typical combination of culture, history and philosophical narrative to understanding the bayou country of Louisiana, The plot is a little more non realistic than most of the previous Dave Robicheaux Novels. It is worth listening as the narrative flows well, especially read by Will Patton. He has the dialect and the distinctive voice change to pick out the individual characters.
Yes and No; It flowed well but there were some districting interludes that you could of done without.
Yes as noted above
Worth the listen
Yes, because the narrator is so good.
The other James Lee Burke novels. They all are so evocative of the place.
I like Dave Robicheaux because he's a regular guy who stands for what he believes and does what he thinks is right. Add alittle excitement and a few rumbles from Clint & the story comes to lfe!
I think all the Dave Rosbicheaux books easily compare to the Lucas Davenport novels. Easy to read, page turners with just outcomes for most!
Another addition to a very enjoyable series. Will Patton and J L Burke go together like, well like Licorice Spice tea and honey. The only thing i didn't like about this listen, was that it ended. Dave and his friends seem to age like like a fine wine under Mr Burke's guidance. Hope the next one is out soon.
No, Now I want to begin with book one in the series.
Amazing character voice variations which creates more individuality for each character.
Two loveable tough
guys against the system.
I really get hooked on the these loveable characters who have to solve so many internal as well as external conflicts in their lives. So many "What would I do in this situation?" questions.
