Absolutely. I think this book was THE best book I've ever listened to! I first heard Scott Brick read The Passage (by Justin Cronin) and really enjoyed that, so his voice was familiar to me. I'd never "read" anything by Dennis Lehane but I had seen the movie Mystic River, a few times (it's also one of my favorite movies!) I'd NEVER really cared for Sean Penn until I saw him in this - he was fantastic!
So far I have no comparison. I love most of Stephen King's work as well as the Jack Reacher Series by Lee Child, but Mystic River just took that top slot for me. Now I'm looking into reading other books by Dennis - I want to know if he writes as well in his other books, and if he does, I'll be totally thrilled!
Yes. The Passage, by Justin Cronin. I think Scott is a fantastic reader. I think part of why I enjoyed listening to Mystic River was because I was already familiar with his voice and reading style.
All I can say is I really "felt" it. If the story is good, the reader should "feel" it.
I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves a good story!
I totally enjoyed Slay Ride, by Chris Grabenstein. The narrator, Jeff Woodman, did a wonderful job as well, and although I am French, I really loved listening to his Russian words :)
I would totally recommend this book to anyone looking for a good audiobook. It's only 8 hours long, for those listeners who don't like long stories, which of course wasn't long enough for me. I love a good 15-20+ hour long audiobook as I listen quite often in my car. Although some parts of the story have some graphic language and scenes, it all went with the story quite well.
A+ to you both - I will definitely listen to more books written by Chris Grabenstein and narrated by Jeff Woodman!
