I do not know who the other person was that rated this book, but that person could not have listened. This is the a great Burke book, and I have read them all. It is my favorite formula in mysteries, a search for answers in the past , a clue a little at a time etc. Maybe it is that I am from the area that it is so believeable to be. Ok, so Burke is a little raw for some. Not for me. And Will Patton has always been one of my favorite readers.
I noticed they did not put my first revue in but if this is sold as mystery ,I think people should know there is a lot of very baudy sex and sex talk in the book. It might even sell it quicker. Dirty dirty, I had to read it twice to make sure. LOL
Just Blarney stone and psychobabble. Not a real mystery at all. Could have been good but the blarney was and easy out for and explanation.
nothing to add
quit wirting please.....
.She enjoyed the pron huffing and puffing
.Maybe less sex.....
Porn. More Porn than story
Maybe a better writter could have done something with the good components of this book. Very Anne Perry in its rehashing details and events between principle characters. Hard to tell when locations and times switch.
I was a little hesitant to buy this thinking I might have already see it on PBS. But I had not. What a a great writer. I love writers like Todd, Tony Hilllerman, JamesLee Burke and Jacqueline Winspear that can take little visual things that are totally unrelated to story and with that description put you in the exact place that the character is at that point. I was so moved when Todd took us back to WWI battle field both as it happened and then when grass was growing there. Wonderful. A rare 5 from me.
I have read every Kerr book ,so I must like them. I have gone to US holocaust Memorial Museum website. I guess one is saying and the other is proving : there is no god, there is no justice, and nothing is solved by war.
I don't know how to rate this book. I don't know if I like or not. I guess the one liner by the old peasant to Pancho Villa says it all "doesn't matter who is in charge, they all still you chickens." However , this is much to simple for this book that starts slow and familiar and grows on you.
Like the family history part but Stabenow does not get as descriptive as Nevada Barr. When Barr describes cold , you feel cold. When Barr describes animals, she describes them in the wild. I detest the fact that this writer thinks it is ok to walk into situation with a captive wolf.
Burke and Patton. It will never get better than this duo. The music was wonderful, the story was art, and Will Patton has the heart of an old storyteller.
I do not like gangster mysteries. I guess I like my mysteries driven by other things besides urban gangsters, because, like the stupid vampire mysteries , it is too easy to throw in any resolution to problem and not develop characters.
I do not like any of the characters in this book.
The whole point of the book is about cruely turning away from the ugliness and effects of war. Yet, you condemn Winspear for not turning away from the subject.
At the end of the book, it cannot be any clearer the her character is changing.
