    Hermann Kermit Warm is going to die. The enigmatic and powerful man known only as the Commodore has ordered it, and his henchmen, Eli and Charlie Sisters, will make sure of it. Though Eli doesn't share his brother's appetite for whiskey and killing, he's never known anything else. But their prey isn't an easy mark, and on the road from Oregon City to Warm's gold-mining claim outside Sacramento, Eli begins to question what he does for a living - and whom he does it for. With The Sisters Brothers, Patrick deWitt pays homage to the classic Western....

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes I would recommend this book beucase I found it was laugh out loud funny. It was also dramatic and had an interesting plot. I liked some of the historical details about life in the West during the Gold Rush. It also was a poignant story about two brothers and their choices in life.


    What other book might you compare The Sisters Brothers to and why?

    One of the reasons why I really liked this book is I have never read anything else like it.


    Have you listened to any of John Pruden’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have not


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No because I like to savor books.

  • In One Person: A Novel

    A compelling novel of desire, secrecy, and sexual identity, In One Person is a story of unfulfilled love—tormented, funny, and affecting—and an impassioned embrace of our sexual differences. Billy, the bisexual narrator and main character of In One Person, tells the tragicomic story (lasting more than half a century) of his life as a “sexual suspect,” a phrase first used by John Irving in 1978 in his landmark novel of “terminal cases,” The World According to Garp.

    Story

    When I first began the book I thought oh this is just like so many other Irving novels but then the plot really developed and took an interesting and very political turn. The characters were wonderful and it was very engaging. I really enjoyed the historical nature of the stroy especially the overview of the AIDs epidemic in the 1980s.
