This is a good story about an interesting time, subject and place, but I had such difficulty with the readers voice, diction and pacing that I have been unable to listen to much of it. I will get a copy in print and read it. The voice may not be so distracting to all listeners. I suggest listening to the sample before committing to this one.
Mosley is one of the best hardboiled writers working today and Black Betty is as tight as a drum. The reader is as good as readers get. If you never made it to Southern California in the earlies 60's here is your ticket. This is one ride you won't want to end.
Possibly the most important book ever written. Truly engrossing story telling. This book is worth listening to more than once. Dagny Taggart is the ultimate heroine, she was Lara Croft before Lara Croft.
Ayn Rand lays out her beneficial and liberating capitalist philosophy in a great suspense story. Read it the first time for the suspense and then reread it for the philosophy.
This is a really enjoyable listen. The subject matter is sobering and some may find it very disturbing, however, Pagan Babies is a masterful telling of a story. It is filled with characters who are real enough to like very much or dislike with your whole heart. The plot twists and turns and ultimately satisfies.
Steve Buscemi turns in a great performance.
