I was hopeful that I would be drawn into this book. Unfortunately, the narration is awful, the pace of the plot slow and the characters forgettable. I'm not going to finish listening and write this one off to "They can't all be good." Blech.
I've listened to hundreds of books and this is by far the worst narrated book yet. The story was good in a few parts; the parts that related to the mother and what happened to her. The rest is just garbage. Very disappointed in this one. Recommend you spend your money elsewhere.
I fell for it. I thought the story slogged along and this was one of the worst narrators ever. So many times, I had inserted a mental period only to discover that it was a mistimed, inappropriate pause. The only reason I finished was I didn't have the good sense to download a backup for my roadtrip. Thumbs down!
Addicted to Audible!
I often wonder when I listen to or read a book that I find intolerably dull and boring, if perhaps I missed the point? Maybe more intellectual people than myself understood something I missed? I don't know, all I can say is that I gave it a shot and after the book was done I couldnt even tell you what happened as I couldnt follow the story and forgot whatever I heard a few minutes after listening. I have never listened to such a terrible narration. I am sure that many Native American narrators could have brought some life and excitement to the story- a great reader can make a mediocre book interesting- this narrator did the opposite. The story never captured me, the fables were boring, the characters poorly developed. The book just never seemed to come together into anything I found enlightening or different or significant. I don't recommend wasting your credits on this book.
One of the worst narrated books ever. Could not stand his slow methodical voice. He sounded like he had brain damage. Confusing story. Too many vignettes. Ended up reading the book from the beginning.
A great book for a book club read. Much depth for discussion. The story starts out a little slow, but stick with it and you become engrossed in Joe's struggles and the search for justice.
I am a huge fan and consumer of audiobooks. Some authors I can only listen to (Michael Chabon). This is NOT one of those books. The narration is so clumsy it is infuriating. Pauses that destroy the sense of the sentence, or intonation that subverts meaning and just plain lack of fluency will ruin this rather good story.
