I did not read the printed version
The "Cluster F--k" that took place in New Orleans. From the lowliest hospital administrator to the President of the United States (the wealthiest and most compassionate country ever on earth).On one hand you had the selfless, altruistic heroics of the caretakers at Memorial -- operating under deplorable conditions that (fortunately) most of us can only imagine. On the other hand, you had zealous prosecutors full of indignant outrage who were going to make their statement to the community and protect it from these awful medical professionals. Prosecutors, who not once, at least that I heard, thanked those dedicated care takers for the physically arduous and dangerous conditions under which they succeeded beyond the call of duty.I was compelled to think of the horrific dangers everyone in New Orleans faced and the absolute lack of consideration by the various government agencies that our high taxes support.The Calvary should have been riding into N.O. within 24 hours carrying medical supplies, drinking water and food. They should have been prepared with boats, zodiacs and horses.
When the good old boy Cajuns decided to use their boats to assist
Please do not make this a movie!!!
Very well written and well read.
He ends every sentence with a sigh and or a breathy sound. Drove me nuts. Also, very difficult to segregate the characters as all his inflections are similar
The narrator (sic)
I am not sure what to change. This was a nice story of a nice and funny man. Its not hilarious by any means but it did make me smile. I am glad I listened and glad I paid money because I owed Mr Conway for some of my best belly laughs over the years. Pay back this time was fun.
Not really. He seemed to cover it
His apparent honesty in all his doings came through in his voice
Mr Conway wrote a final scene for the Carol Burnett show -- never performed except in this book.. It was the highlight of the book. A friendship/love affair that was obvious throughout the book and when you watched those two perform.
I did before I finished it...but should not have. Same old story, nothing new.
Well performed and read.Imaginative SiFi just not pulled together.
Good concepts...note I said plural concepts of a story that never really came together believably for me.
I enjoyed the short lived female prosecutor.
No. Too much time spent being Peter Pan and Wendy in a "peril's of Pauline story line. We only missed having the heroin tied to the particle generator...
Do not waste precious credits on this one
Eliminate the terrible characters annoying narration
Nothing by this author or narrator
The first two girls we meet.
Do not waste youcredits or time
Sure, I listen to an average of 4 books each month, this one just did not cut it for me.
I am 1/3 through and I am done. Story is slow, maybe its the narration. Different narrator more action, less waiting for IT.
His character development is excellent
Skip this one.
I am not big on re-reading especially mysteries and court room dramas. That said, there are some wonderful colloquialisms and idiomatic phrases which tickle a northerner like me.
Grisham is a master at character development -- you begin to know the characters and build expectations for their actions. Although minor to the plot, I thoroughly enjoyed the black, Rolls-Royce driving civil rights activists and their antics. Where is Al Sharpton when you really need him?
Several great scenes, Grisham is a court room master
Not extreme, its not that kind of a story. Thoroughly engaging from page 1.
Do not miss this one!
The main character whines and is not at all believable. The story takes too long to evolve
Not anymore the last several are just being published because of his name not the caliber of the writing
He doesn't sound like the character portrayed (at least in my opinion)
If you adore Wolfe give it a try. Or if you have trouble sleeping and an endless pointless story could help you sleep buy this book
Is there a caboose on this train...On and on and on...Get to the point. The characters could be good but its like reading twitter, who cares
Is laugh out loud was really bad and annoying
Maybe -- I may have quit too soon but for me 10 hours was all I could stand enjoying
I expected to like this as much as I did Bon Fires. Bon Fires took place in NY neighborhoods I am familiar with, I am also very familiar with South Florida and Miami but I could not relate.
