Finishing the story. It was left in a very awkward place.
No. I like this series, but I would wait till the next one comes out.
George was great...
It is too long. Burke could have taken a bit more time and edited this one a bit more. It feels like a rough draft, rambling around without a point, with too many loose ends. Not as tight and well written as most of the series.
Weird ending. Too many characters just stop doing anything for the last ten minutes of the book.
While I still enjoyed the book, the themes are getting repetitive and tired. I am glad it took place in Montana, but it wasn't that accurate. All the final action seems to take place near Flathead Lake, yet he refers to the same sheriff as in Missoula (Flathead Lake is part in Lake County, part in Flathead County: different sheriffs).
Too many people die in these books for it to be realistic. I didn't add up the total death toll, but it is high. Too much gore, more than is needed. There are as many murders in this one book as Missoula would see in a year.
Yet I still enjoy Burke's prose. It is poetic and beautiful, and Patton's wonderful narration makes it sing. Despite my complaints, I am still glad I listened to this book.
Seemed a little shallower than some of his past work. Ended too quickly and unbelievably. Very good narration, and I still enjoy this series.
Yes. I like the character, the narration, and the series.
