I think I expected something more like prose and this was more like poetry. Very long and circuitous poetry. As I listened to the first 5 minutes, I assumed I was listening to the prologue as it was kind of dry and loose. But no, this was to be the entire book. I hung on hoping for more but it seldom improved.
This was a really great story. The only drawback was McLarty repeatedly saying "Corzeman". As a former corpsman (pronounced core man) I found this distracting. I understand that the former pronunciation is used but not by anyone in the military.
Yes, if they liked the gangster/true crime genre.
I like the fact the author took lots of care to tell the story accurately.
The narrator stuck his nose into the story way too much. He could have summarized his input up front. There are a lot of voices going on already which highlights one of the downsides to keeping up with an audiobook. And instead of minimizing such distractions, the editor seemed oblivious to the problem.
I was intriqued by the idea of the after life and kept waiting for something to develop during this story. After 8 hours, it never did develop. I will be far more careful in my future selections. I really felt cheated at the end. Where can I get my 8 hours back?!
