    Story
    (247)

    Boston, 1926. The ‘20s are roaring. Liquor is flowing, bullets are flying, and one man sets out to make his mark on the world. Prohibition has given rise to an endless network of underground distilleries, speakeasies, gangsters, and corrupt cops. Joe Coughlin, the youngest son of a prominent Boston police captain, has long since turned his back on his strict and proper upbringing. Now having graduated from a childhood of petty theft to a career in the pay of the city's most fearsome mobsters, Joe enjoys the spoils, thrills, and notoriety of being an outlaw.

    Richard Delman says: "Lehane shows off his skills."
    "Not all that impressed"

    Story
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I would not receommend this book to anyone except someone who's already a Dennis Lehane fan. I found it long and not terribly engaging.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    Start over.


    What about Jim Frangione’s performance did you like?

    The narrator did a good job with the voices.


    Did Live by Night inspire you to do anything?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    We got this book to listen to on a long drive from Chicago to Florida, thinking it would be compelling. Not. We were both waiting to get really drawn in, but that really never happened. We finished it only because we'd put so many hours into listening.
