Where I grew up in Southwestern PA sounds a lot like the small KY towns mentioned in this book. I enjoyed that these simple, sometimes-uneducated people were able to build an empire (albeit illegal) to make a living.
The author explaining the drive up to Johnny Boone's house when they met was something that stuck with me.
Paul Boehmer was able to distinguish between characters subtly. He didn't attempt to do impersonations, but changed inflection slightly to depict the individuality of characters. I am adding him to my favorite narrators.
"Million Dollar Farming Between the Rows"
Yes. The book was well-enough written and Keith Szarabajka did a great job!
I have not listened to his books.
Again, Keith Szarabajka did a great job. I think the narrator is hugely important and love when they use subtle inflection to seperate characters without trying to do impersonation. All the caracters were done perfectly.
I was inspired to research some newspaper articles on the topic. Again, it gave me knowledge and inspired me to seek more.
Yes, because someone else reads it to me.
The narrator did a GREAT job. I loved the writing and the research done to compile the acts. Best of all, I liked that it did what it set out to do: Change my mind as to who killed Nicole & Ron.
I think the interview with Dr. Henry Lee was great.
I never even knew Jason was a suspect. I think he may be charged one day.
Another narrator. It had no inflection and even seemd like punctuation was ignored. If I had been told that the book was read by a computer, I would have believed it. I think it was an interesting story, but it was certainly lost in the delivery.
I think the story could have been great, but I couldn't get past the performance.
Yes. For anyone that likes true crime and is intrigued by clever "bad guys", this is a great read.
The great thing about this book is that there was no ebb an flow leading to that peak. The whole book was a flow and it was all very memorable.
His voice an inflection was wonderful and he made the characters come alive. The were subtle differences to their voices and tones, without sounding overdone, which carried throughout the book. One of my favorite listens.
I think there were sad moments, but for the most part, this was about clever and even witty criminals ripping off other criminals.
The story may be compelling if read by someone else
Little history tidbits were certainly interesting, but the narration made them less so
Whitey because he was what every lover of organized crime books wants to read about
It was well done and well read. That seems like something all audio books have, but it is NOT.
Nothing exreme. Just well done.
The narration completely drove me to not want to listen
It might be a good movie as long as narration was not done by Ms. Des Barres
I couldn't even finish it.
This book was completely fascinating from beginning to end and provided: drama, suspense, and a history lesson in a wonderful and entertainging manner.
I loved the way Scott Brick delivered the reading and loved every part of it.
The book wasn't written to have huge character parts, but I think Scott did a great job delivering every piece. I will be looking for others read by Mr. Brick.
I think the last few weeks leading up to the fair and the vast amount of work to be done was awesome.
Great book. I don't rate 5 stars across the board very often, but this one is deserving!
I am not sure I would listen again, as many parts were very hard to hear the first time.
It ws tough to like any of the charactrs in this book. I think the surviving victim would have to be the bright spot.
This is my forst, but I will keep him sa a favorite.
No. Your mind definately needs a break from this.
I think I was expecting something more than just the gradual death of the newspaper idustry. There were some interesting bits, but more a history lrsson than entertainment.
Over the years, there had to be some interesting stories and witty happenings. I would have highlighted a few more of these...
It was fine.
Just the newspaper industry obituary
