Yes - will probably listen at least one more time. I have enjoyed several earlier titles the second time through and would think this would be no different. The stories are so entertaining and George Guidall nail the narration. Entertaining and fun...
I love the interation between Walt and Vic - so the exchanges between them would rank right up there.
Able to get me to visualize all of the characters.
When if became clear that things were not going to come out totally "fine" - that things had explanation - but that the explanation was not particularly pretty - and that there are bad people - and bad things out there that we sometimes cannot "fix" or "solve"
I did not give this book as high a rating as I have other Longmire's - I am struggling a bit with the whole plot line that continues from Serpent's Tooth. I also thought the overlay of Walt's grandchild arriving was a bit forced - as Henry noted - why not get on the plane - go to Philly and take care of that - then come back and deal with things in Wyoming.
One thing that I think Lawrence Block does very well is that his plot seems to "unfold". His stories don't very often surprise with things that you are shocked with - rather they evolve with a logic that makes sense when you reflect back on them. Scudder never seems lost or in over his head - rather he is analytical and dogged. Also prefer the length of these to the 15 hour plus convoluted epics
An entertaining read that will lead me to a few more DB books in the near future. Some of the plot elements seem pretty improbable - but I was able to get past them and enjoy the ride.
I know this is part of what many see as transformational writing in police/crime fiction. And I enjoyed it - but in the end I found it pretty blah.
I love the discovery side of Audible😊
I am in my late 60s and have never heard anything about Gilgamesh. Not a great book - but one that did make me think a lot about some basic aspects of the human condition
I was a bit skeptical when I read the description of the book - to the point of being willing to return it if the first hour or so did not engage me. Instead I found myself listening straight thru and really enjoying both the story and Sheldon
I have become obsessed with the nordic police procedurals. Iceland - Norway - Sweden - have all been awesome - this compilation was well worth the listen and I learned a lot
Found this a nice change from the Harry Bosch series - but not quite as good. Writing is solid and there are a few surprises along the way - but also a few things that seem improbable
I am a huge fan of Kurt Wallander and the first 100 pages or so of this book are really great at allowing the reader to see the world as Wallander sees it.
Unfortunately the author is determined to make a political point with the rest of the book and puts together a long - way too long - convoluted - way too convoluted - tale that is hard to believe and paints the bad guys as caricatures - not real villains - but evil symbols
I have enjoyed all of the Mankell mysteries - Pyramid is my favorite. This is a good listen and well worth your tim
This and The Narrows are my favorites in the mid range of the Harry Bosch series. The plot holds together pretty well with the Conely twists
