"The Last Juror" includes an ensemble of interesting characters in a setting brought to life with Southern culture, customs and dialect. It was difficult to pause once I was listening. I give it 4.5 at least.
Cannell did it again with this fast-paced suspense. It is non-stop action from beginning to end. The characters are realistic and the storyline plausible as far as police stories are told. It is short but well worth hearing.
As indicated, American Gods is truly an intriguing blend of mystery, fantasy, fairy tale and more. Each time the suspense fades and your eyes close, Gaiman stuns your imagination anew. Do not let the occasional lull dull your attention. This unforgettable tale leaves no path untravelled.
The publisher's summary is most accurate in "For one dazzling day, we see what Webb sees..." Imagine a stranger listening to your thoughts as they wonder over one day in your life. If it sounds appealing, this title may be for you. Personally, the poetic descriptions are a plus. Otherwise, it fatigues me to listen.
