    Where does And the Mountains Echoed rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    top 10% The slow pace of telling may bug some, but it is the local way of telling a story setting the time and place and slowly developing the picture. I have been in country this is classical work.


    Have you listened to any of the narrators’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I liked the kite book, and the 1000 suns were better, but all different enough.but I felt the first two more,and felt the writer was opening his own heart with the stories.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    no savor it


    Any additional comments?

    This is a Doctor with great ease with language. His stories are not dressed up or slanted for pity. It is what it is. Like a photo of these times, no undue drama, but no hiding life. Everything he writes is excellent in any language. A rare writer in these times.

    Creole Belle begins where the last book in the Dave Robicheaux series, The Glass Rainbow, ended. Dave is in a recovery unit in New Orleans, where a Creole girl named Tee Jolie Melton visits him and leaves him an iPod with the country blues song “Creole Belle” on it. Then she disappears. Dave becomes obsessed with the song and the memory of Tee Jolie and goes in search of her sister, who later turns up inside a block of ice floating in the Gulf.
