    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I haven't read Ann Rice for anumber of years, but when I listened to Wolf Gift I was enthralled. The descriptions were succulant, The narrator particularly seductive in his rendering of this story. She not only painted pictures with her words, but also brought smells and tastes and every other sense into play and the book lived!

    My only regret is that I've already listened to it!!! I wish that it were brand new and I could experience it again, as new. I'm certain that I will listen again, and I hope that the flavor will hold!! I highly recommend it to all!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Wolf Gift?

    I can't think of one moment. It all flowed and called out to me to continue the adventure.


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

    I don't know of any other books performed by Ron McLarty, but I will find out!


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Don't know. I've never really seen a movie that was ever as moving as the book. I don't know how they could ever portray all of the emotion and sensuality, love and beauty of this in a movie and in any way understand what lay inside the soul and mind of these characters.

    In Light of the World, sadist and serial killer Asa Surrette narrowly escaped the death penalty for the string of heinous murders. But following a series of damning articles written by Dave Robicheaux’s daughter Alafair about possible other crimes committed by Surette, the killer escapes from a prison transport van and heads to Montana - where an unsuspecting Dave happens to have gone to take in the sweet summer air, accompanied by Alafair, his wife Molly, faithful partner Clete, and Clete’s newfound daughter, Gretchen Horowitz.

    Story
    If you could sum up Light of the World in three words, what would they be?

    Exciting, riveting beautifully written.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Gretchen is relentless and strong.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The final scene with Dave and Cletus.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    My fear that Cletus would actually die.


    Any additional comments?

    This was one of my favorites because the writing was so beautifully eloquent but he didn't get too verbose and become irritating!

    And, of course, Will Patton ads an enticing flavor with his gift.
