To me, the story was slow and boring. The narrator's Welsh accent was horrible.
First of all, the performance was pretty bad. You could hear the narrator turning the pages of his script. You could hear the pauses in his performance as he turned the page. The narrator's cadence kept changing...it just seemed very unpolished and unprofessional.
The audiobook was unabridged but there were words in the audiobook that are different from the print book. For example, the print book used the "n" word but that word was changed in the audiobook. I thought that was a smart choice and didn't mind the change but I think there should have been some sort of note telling the buyer that this particular audiobook was "edited for content" or something along those lines.
Overall, I thought the story was OK but the performance was not very good at all.
The narrator sounded bored reading the book so I was bored listening to him. This book reads like a cheap Made For TV western action movie. I loved Appaloosa but I was disappointed in this book.
I've only listened to it once but I've thought about listening to it again.
I don't know what it is about this book but it has definitely resonated with me. I think it's the feeling of desperation that permeates the story and it really got to me and I haven't been able to forget it. I will definitely listen to this story again!!
I am a fan of fantasy novels and heist/con man type movies and this book blended the two genres perfectly. The narrator did a great job. Well worth the time!
I thought it was a beautifully written book and I thought the narrator did a good job. I liked the footnotes and found them interesting. But, the story was way too long and kind of boring. I think it would have been a better book if it were shorter and tighter...if that makes sense.
