Can't beat a Burke/Patton combo.? Burke always delivers and Patton is so smooth you are transferred right through the narrating like you can touch the leaves and feel like you are walking the streets of NO.?
Great read. Narration was perfect. I felt like i knew these ladies at the end of the book, and i wanted to be sitting around the kitchen table with them. This is a chick book, but if you are a well rounded man, you will like it as well. It's a coming of age story set in the suppressed deep south.
If you like true crime this is an awesome read. Growing up in NJ, i could identify with many landmarks and i was there when this madman was on the loose!! This is a sad and ironic story- you can almost identify with the killer. A must read if you like the sadistic side.
This was a difficult book to get through. The brogue was hard to understand and the characters fuzzy. I made it to the end and it was OK, but the worst book ive listened to so far.
This was my first Robbins novel and I've become a big fan since. Robbins writes true verbal poetry. He is a verbage master. This novel is not for the flighty or easy going listener. This is a crazy novel that takes many different paths and has many tones and undertones. You have to pay attention to "get" it all. If you love quirky, intelligent writing that is nonconventional, you will love Robbins. If you are straight laced and simple minded, pass this book up.
A different kind of book--it is dark, but you dont know it until you get into it, and then you are laughing and so amuzed that it doesnt matter that this is a true science fiction story. Open your minds and enjoy this interesting work. Fisher Stevens is a plus narrating. He seems to have alot of fun with the characters.
