No one can improve on the author,s portrayal of Brown, burning up before our eyes
However with the absence of any other charcter development, the minstrel show humor,
I cannot imagine who, how old, where educated, and what color the critics are. Literature's power to transport us does not rely on repetitious celebration of saying forbidden words and telling dirty stories.
It is not even disgusting at last; it is just a waste of time. Where is the value ?
What genre do you think it is?
Yes. I won't notice, probably.
Yes. The fine portrayal of John Brown
Someone who wants to know about every furniture covering
Something light, not self conscious.....maybe a dip back to Harry Bosch. Or a brain research book that is popular now.
He misread, without correction, too many sentences. His voice is nice and noninterfering, but he overruns phrasing and gets it wrong.
Do you not allow readers to correct their misreads?
Any third of the book....not too long, too slow.
I loved the potter characters, execution and most of the plot lines. Wouldn't have missed a one.
It is an interesting trip into another time of rigid arrogant templates for human misery, temporary or permanent. I was amazed at exactly how rigid and how accepted and lauded Freud's theories are. That is the only thing that kept me listening to the end.
This writer easily challenges Elmore Leonard for king of dialogue; this long selection flies by. Totally believable characters in hardship and life lessons few of us knows. American history that no one else is going to tell you in a way that you FEEL it. The reader is very much a part of why you want the Audible experience rather than written word. He is old enough and has paid enough attention to Americans of all stripes that he brings you right in to Shadow Country. Enough of my 72 years have been spent around people who are a few steps farther along that I can recognize them and me, even though we are educated and wealthy in comparison,I love this and will listen again to favorite events in the lives of the folks I have become familiar with.
I know no other experience like Shadow Country.
No, but I will.
Any of the women, to give them hope of change comin'.
