I was riveted throughout - got attached to the characters, sympathized with them. However, I think the story would have benefited from an epilogue.
From the beginning, I was captivated by the natural, artful flow of this book. There is a genuineness about the story and characters that made it easy for me to picture the settings, the faces and the events. Trevanian gives us vivid humor, frustration, hope, and so many other emotions all throughout the book. The ending perfect, just perfect. I couldn't ask for a better audiobook.
In his remarkable performance, Michael Beck colors each character with authentic overlay and unique qualities. He is a fine narrator. Mr. Beck does justice to John Grisham's captivating story of Mississippi culture, personal eccentricities, and one man's quest for justice. I highly recommend this book.
Even the excellent narration couldn't keep me interested in this book; 2 hours into the performance and I was still unattached to the characters and their lives. It just wasn't to my taste.
Heartwarming story of a dog's reincarnation through four earthly lives - shines a light on the purity of dogs' perceptions; shines the same light on the cluttered perception of humans. It has inspired me to be the woman my dog thinks I am.
I got engrossed in this story, but was very disappointed at the end. There was no resolution. The story was interesteing and the characters were fleshed out, but why the 'no-ending' ending? Very annoying. Don't bother.
Interesting story, but told with such a 1970's overlay of sexism it made me shake my head a dozen times. Sweeping generalities about the perceived easy life of beautiful women. Listen with amusement and give thanks that our culture is evolving.
This is a tautly-written story with absolutely nothing gratuitous. Besides an engrossing plot, it has captivating commentary on the legal system, well-developed, believable characters and a refreshing absence of vulgarity. I hope the author writes a sequel; if not, I anxiously await his next book. It was a pleasure to listen to.
I was engrossed from beginning to end.
David LeDoux was the perfect choice for this book, as it was written in the first person and LeDoux used subtle variations in his delivery to depict the various young, older, male and female characters as though the main character was, indeed, simply telling his story.
Yes, the ending was poignant and provocative.
I wish all novels were as well-written.
My favorite serial killer, Dexter Morgan, meets his matches in Dexter Is Delicious. I tremendously enjoyed this installment in the Dexter series, although I wish there was considerably less profanity. It's not necessary, detracts from the story, and makes the characters seem a little stupid. Both Dexter's role as daddy and the recently developed complications in his sister's life make me anticipate the next book in the series.
Davina Porter recreates the characters with welcome familiarity. Her delivery is excellent, as we have come to expect. However, the story line is fraught with confusing flip flops and rambling. I enjoyed the other books much more and hope #8 gives the reader more clarity.
