I would like to take the time and the money back, except that listening allows me to critique it. The story is well written to formula, but I would never want to listen to or read the unnecessary filthy language again. It could have been just as good without some of the language. It was really gross
The reveal of the sick character addicted to porn.
Anyone else. His use of the north country accents straight from the movie "Fargo" made me cringe. I was cringing a LOT..It was especially outrageous hearing these accents used for (sympathetic to the author) female characters. At least in "Fargo" it was extremely entertaining. If the setting in "Spilled Blood" had been much farther north in Minnesota, or close to Canada, this accent may have been more authentic, but it would still need to be softened. This was just misleading. I spend a lot of time in Ortonville, Mn at a cabin there, and I have never heard this accent from any person in that town. I hear it in Minneapolis rarely from people who are from much farther north. And it does not make the people sound stupid, as this narrator evidently was attempting to do.
Again, I think the narrator was making fun of the people in the book by exaggerating the accent used. If I thought I sounded like that, as a woman, I would never open my mouth. He could not have seriously thought people would enjoy listening to this accent. It was insulting to Minnesotans. Is that what the author intended?
