No. He is enamel red with the words "fuck" and "god damn".
Only if the language is cleaned up
Intriguing story line
Interesting story line with lots of twists. You don't usually get an ancient artifact story in rural Minnesota. Plenty of interesting characters.
This is the third Virgil Flowers audiobook I've listened to. I just don't like Eric Conger as much as the narrator of Sandford's Prey series. The narration is just average. If you're from Minnesota, both Conger and Ferrone's occasional hatchet jobs on local place names will cause a chuckle.
Mature reader with a penchant for English mysteries and crime fiction. However, I do not care for gore and gratuitous violence.
Virgil Rocks Again
Hit Man by Lawrence Block. A good intriguing story interspersed with sly humor. Totally different types of books but the writing and stories are both great. Not too heavy and the "heroes" don't take themselves too seriously.
Dead on with Virgil; Conger is the voice of Virgil to me. He's also pretty good with the other characters. I think he does a good job with most of the other voices.
No. I like to string the good ones out because it makes is easy to walk and exercise while listening to a good story.
I love anything by John Sandford. His Virgil Flowers series hooked me from the first book. Never thought I could warm up to another Sandford character the way I did to Davenport, but I was wrong - Virgil Flowers is almost as fascinating and richly drawn as Lucas Davenport.
The narrator, Conger, seemed to be half-heartedly reading the book for the first time. The plot was labored, hard to believe, and uninteresting.
Yes, I have listened to or read all of Sandford's books, and enjoyed them all...until now. Still, I will no doubt buy the next and chalk this one up as a rare miss.
The narrator of the Davenport series or Conger--if he would seem to care, as he has in other Flower's books.
A rare Sandford let down.
I actually didn't find the story particularly interesting. It was the narration.
Yes, I laughed out loud. I like the effin Flowers humor and Eric Conger makes it seem like you are listening to a real conversation or a thought in Virgil's head.
The reason I listen to the Virgil Flowers books is for the throw-away lines and the humor. Eric Conger is Virgil Flowers to me. I can't read these books; I have to listen to Eric Conger read them.
Hard to pinpoint.
Virgil's sense of humor is always something to look forward to.
Ma is awesome.
When the Virgil Flowers line of books started he was kind of an unwelcome diversion from the Davenport series. A spinoff that I was not entirely sure I was going to like. The series started slowly, but I've listened to every one of them, and I am liking them more and more. Eric Conger delivers a good reading performance, and I've come to the point that I like Flowers and know pretty much what he's going to do. He's his own man, and a very different man than Davenport. You can almost predict what Davenport will do; not so with Flowers whom Sandford keeps us guessing about most of the time. This is a good listen and worth you time and money.
Even though the premise is time tested Sandford brings the topic to life through that f-ing Flowers!
Setting is perfect contrast .... Middle East v. Minnesota
