    Would you listen to Sweet Dreams (The Justice of Revenge) again? Why?

    Interesting story but the monotonality, metronomic and poorly inflected delivery make it difficult to concentrate on the story.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Sweet Dreams (The Justice of Revenge)?

    When I finally realized the author had skipped ahead for a year but the jump was not, to me, clearly delineated.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Bob Dunsworth’s performances?

    Definitely not.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I never do that.

    It's 1968. The Cold War is hot, the Vietnam War is raging, and the women's movement is beating a far-distant drum. When Austin Starr's husband decides to protest the war by emigrating from Texas to Canada, she goes along, with the biblical dictate of "whither-thou-goest I will go" ringing in her ears... No activist herself, Austin is homesick, drowning in culture shock, and now, her husband has been accused of murdering a fellow draft resister, the black-sheep son of a U.S. Senator.

    Story
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    No one. Took forever to develop the characters. Grew tired of trying and gave up listening so can't really rate the entire story. Even if the story was gripping, I would not be able to tolerate the narrator.


    What could Kay Kendall have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Nothing


    What didn’t you like about Tatiana Gomberg’s performance?

    Shrill voice. None of her characterizations sounded like real people. Volume varied from loud and shrill to barely understandable.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    Should have listened to an excerpt.

    Many years ago, Jack Swyteck saved Theo Knight's life. Theo grew up on the streets of Miami's roughest neighborhood and lost his mother to a violent crime. Although his uncle Cy tried his best to raise him right, by the time he was a teenager, Theo was on death row for a murder he didn't commit. Jack was the lawyer who proved him innocent. Now a successful bar owner, Theo has turned things around. But he needs Jack's help again, this time more than ever.

    Suzy says: "Excellent book"
    "Great book"
    Overall

    This is a typical Grippando story with great character development, twisty plot and a narrator who truly 'plays' the characters. The terrible thing about this recording is the music which is loud, discordant and totally inappropriate to the story line.
