yes I enjoyed it. The pacing was great. I would certainly forewarn that at times Parker can be a bit gruesome but it is a demon/ghost story
I grew up listening to my grandfather's stories of his childhood in Birmingham. One of the best treats in the fall was listening to ghost stories at Sloss Furnace.
Listening to these remembrances brings back both those days and provides a look into a long forgotten time - pre computer ; )
For some the cadence may be a little slow but sit back and let it wash over you. Try to remember that sitting around the table and talking about one's past is how we share it with those coming behind us.
It was a bit interesting but overall felt a little thin. Each section spent a lot of time on story and very little on lesson
Certainly. The narration actually adds an extra depth to the story
No. In fact I listened to it over a period of 2 months
Absolutely. The book is very addictive and adventurous. While there were certain plot elements that were predictable, they didn't exactly pan out the way I expected.
At times the switch between stories was very abrupt
not at all I love JLB However this particular book felt like a lot of rehash from other books. Having said that I have not read his non NOLA series and am now more interested in those
Ron McLarty is perfect and definitely the voice of Dave Robicheaux
I felt somewhat disappointed when I discover several stories with strong links and at times identical to other written work. While the back stories went further than what was told in the novel it did not really contribute to my enjoyment of the novels
