Good story and could have been a lot of fun but when the Sheriff starts killing people it takes a turn for the worse. There's no reason for it. Could have been more entertaining if the old boy had come up with some wild convoluted backwoods kind of humiliation. Murdering the poor old black guy just didn't fit.
John McLain does a great job, I'll look for him again
I was recently asked to take on a sales position at my company. In some ways sales is new to me. Listened to this book gave me a good push in the right direction. I'm sure it saved me from making more than a few mistakes. Ready to listen through again.
This one's like the waiter rant. The workers are frustrated and angry. The only way out is to give them money and even then it never seems to be enough. I learned a lot seeing it from the other side, the story and the performance were well done, but I don't ever want to go to a hotel or a restaurant again.
Ya can't say anything about the plot without giving things away, it's that surprising. I got a kick out of the characters, lots of humorous descriptions, explanations and motivations. The technique of unfolding the plot by referring back worked well. There were moments when I found the father's defense of his son was a little creepy.
I listened through waiting for things to change. Ex Catholic, the problems of being too pretty, divorce, bad family history, handsome-rich-real-guy-doctor who wants to marry you, but you won't for eleven years until he's ready to die, airplane flight through a snowstorm, no kids. The best part is that she gets along with the first wife. I've had a happy marriage for thirty years and it doesn't involve any of this nonsense.
Hey maybe next Christmas we can listen to stories about people who regret they won the lottery.
