Don't look for deep characters in this thrilling yarn, but do look for an exciting story. If you can get used to the breathy, heaving, melodramatic narrator (Richard Poe), which took me about an hour to do, then you'll be rewarded with an intensely researched, exciting story. The story gets 4-stars, the narrator gets 2-stars.
Molly Ivins is a thrill to listen to, she's a great reader and a better writer. It was entertaining and truthful. I've almost finished it, but have to complain about the selection of articles: I can't remember the last time I've waded through so many obituaries! Yes, she uses them to both celebrate the passing of people she is proud to have known and as a jumping-off point to bring up an issue, but it gets pretty repetitive listening to ANOTHER obituary and ANOTHER one and ANOTHER one and >JESUSMAKEITSTOP!< ANOTHER obituary! I'm worn out from all the dead people!
Still a great listen, I'll go looking for Bushwhacked, next.
