I would like to give Anne Hillerman another chance but not the narrator!
I, like other reviewers, had the villian figured out half way through book!! Which left later part of book's supense dependent on Leaphorn's outcome & how all the involved agencies would finally figure out 'who dun it'!
Even taking into consideration my bias toward Geo Guidall as narrator of Tony Hillerman's books I absolutely could not get into Delaine's narration!! The navajo female voices all sounded the same and the males feminine. Ugh.
The sister was unredeemable as written and I was left hanging as to her outcome or how 'stooped boy' played into her character.
Prehaps I had too high of hope for this book. Those were mighty big shoes to fill and I really felt Tony himself was having difficulty filling his own shoes the last several books. They just weren't up to the first ones!
Probably not. . The first 'read' was enough. Cried and laughed in all the right places.
Lucy. . .she sounds very much like my dog, accepting what comes her way and delirously happy when I return home.
While this is not Shakespeare --- it was a very nice pre-Christmas story to listen to while I sew! Plot might seem implausible to some but it isn't implausibe to any one who has experienced loses/trauma.Happy Holidays!!
