    Story
    (191)

    In the late 1990s and early 2000s, the landscape of television began an unprecedented transformation. While the networks continued to chase the lowest common denominator, a wave of new shows, first on premium-cable channels like HBO and then basic-cable networks like FX and AMC, dramatically stretched television’s narrative inventiveness, emotional resonance, and artistic ambition. No longer necessarily concerned with creating always-likable characters, plots that wrapped up neatly every episode, or subjects that were deemed safe and appropriate, shows such as The Wire, The Sopranos, Mad Men, and more tackled issues of life and death, love and sexuality....

    Would you try another book from Brett Martin and/or Keith Szarabajka?

    Not sure. Feel cheated in that most of the content was about the Sopranos. Reading performance was excellent.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    Less Sopranos!!! There are only 4 hours left and still no mention of Breaking Bad


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

    My first listen by this performer. Very good. Will look for other titles by same performer.


    Do you think Difficult Men needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    NO!!!! No more about the Sopranos is needed!!!
