I liked this book!
I've been a John Irving fan since Garp. His writing is superb. I always care for his characters.
Last Night in Twisted River has been my commute companion for the past several weeks. It captured me on several levels. The story was intriguing, characters were engaging and I felt priviledged to gain some of Irving's insight into his life and writing process. (Another great take into writers and writing is Stephen King's "On Writing.")
It always takes me some time to get into the rhythm of audiobook narrators, with the exception of Will Patton in most of James Lee Burke's novels. Arthur Morey's effort with this book was no exception. Once I picked up on it, I found his narration to be transparent and easy to follow. I'll be hearing Ketchum's voice in my head for some time.
How many more years before I can enjoy another John Irving novel? I can't wait!
I've been an Audible member for several years. This is the first audio book I could not finish. The narrator is terrible. He swallows half his words, volume is shouting one moment and so quiet you can't hear what he's saying the next. Very over-dramatic. I made it through just one hour of the book.
I love Greg Iles and have read a number of his books. Some advice for the next one for his publisher: spend some time auditioning your narrator.... please...
