    With the closing of the Harlan County, Kentucky coalmines, marijuana has become the biggest cash crop in the state. A hundred pounds of it can gross three-hundred thousand dollars, but that’s chump change compared to the quarter million a human body can get you - especially when it’s sold off piece-by-piece. So when Dickie and Coover Crowe, dope-dealing brothers known for sampling their own supply, decide to branch out into the body business, it’s up to U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens to stop them.

    If you could sum up Raylan in three words, what would they be?

    Backstory Details Explanation


    What other book might you compare Raylan to and why?

    I don't read this genre much.


    Have you listened to any of Brian D'Arcy James’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    He's good.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    For those who want to follow a modern day Lawman saga


    Any additional comments?

    I'm a big fan of the cable TV show "Justified." This book filled in some details that made me better understand the series--sometimes the series cuts scenes and doesn't call sufficient attention to small details and you miss elements of motivation. I enjoyed listening to Raylan for that reason...

    His beloved wife having died in childbirth, Phineas Finn finds Irish society and his job as a poorhouse inspector dull and unsatisfying, particularly after the excitement of his former career as a Member of Parliament. Back in England, the Whigs are determined to overturn the Tory majority in the Parliament of the United Kingdom. Since Finn had once been considered the most promising of the younger set, he is encouraged to run for office again. Bribery, romance, and murder are peppered throughout this Trollope novel.

    Joyce says: "Old classic still resonates today."
    "For all lovers of the Victorian novel"

    What did you like about this audiobook?

    It doesn't get any better than this. It will be good if you have listened to the other novels in the series, most importantly, Phineas Finn. Timothy West is the very best reader of these novels -- how can he do all the voices so expertly? He helps you appreciate the language far more than you could if you were reading.


    How has the book increased your interest in the subject matter?

    Yes, immensely.

    "Fabulous reader"
    Overall

    I can't imagine a better reading of the novel than that done by Wanda McCaddon. Nicholas Nickleby is a novel of melodramatic theatricality and she embodies each character's voice and does the narration in a way the dramatizes to melodramatic perfection.
