No, this book, even though it is a short story, did not live up to the name of the author nor did it do justice to the character of John Corey. I have read almost every book of DeMille's and particularly enjoy the John Corey series. This seemed to be an afterthought.
Write it as a full length novel which would give time for the personality of John Corey to expand and give a wonderful writer such as DeMille time to develop the background needed for this piece.
Brick is a great performer and I feel that what I did enjoy of the story was the performance of Brick.
I wanted to check out the "classics" but this was painful. I pictured the "monster" as a wealthy tycoon sipping scotch in a high back leather chair while listening. Had to just shut it down and might I add this is the first time I have ever stopped listening, reading or watching any book or movie. I sincerely hope that you find it enjoyable and if I could give you my copy I would.
Personally just did not enjoy the story
Yes, the background story and historical truths that have been tied into this story were very well put together.
Ford's Theater scene with John Wilkes Booth.
Many instances are well written and convey the misery that Lincoln dealt with too much in his lifetime with the loss of his children and sister Sarah.
Yes, I would listen to Riptide again but would definitely skip through a lot of the chaff in the background setup.
Hatch and his brother's expedition into the tunnel.
Nothing, Brick is a great narrator.
When Hatch elaborated on the loss of his father.
