Just got into Elmore Leonard's works a few months ago. So far I've fully enjoyed everything he's written. I didn't realize how many stories he's written that have been made into very good movies. Love the way he sets a scene but even more I enjoy the dialog between characters.
Too hard to pick just one.
Yes. Always does a very good job.
Again, too difficult to pick just one.
I started this series because I finished all the Dresden Files and wanted more from Jim Butcher. Now I'm torn between the two and since I've finished all of these, I'm not only torn but without anything to read. Hopefully Butcher will keep contributing to both series and soon!
The hopelessness and the optimism. The details of the plans and the way the various societies/peoples weave the fabric that holds them together.
Can't say I had a favorite seen.
I laughed a few times. Didn't cry.
Don't know, listened didn't read it, so cannot say which is better. But I liked the narrator's voice in my head better than I like the one in mine.
Good plot, well written, gets the social divide between ethnicities, the police and the American class structure pretty well - especially for the time period this book is set in.
Yes and equally good. I'll be looking for his narrations.
Yes, wish I could have.
Highly recommend this book and the Easy Rawlins series!
Wouldn't know, didn't read it, only listened.
Not on the edge, but intrigued none-the-less.
He was good. Got the inflections and pauses down and has a nice speaking voice.
Couldn't, but I listened as often as I could until it was finished - about 3 days.
I like the series. I'll be buying more. They are perfect for my workout listens.
Not happy about the change in narrators. Also not happy with the overall story. It wasn't bad, but it wasn't up to Butcher's usual standards. It seemed he tried to do too much, but he wrapped things up nicely in the end.
Worth the listen, but not as wonderful as I'd hoped.
