    Story
    (336)

    When a casino robbery in Atlantic City goes horribly awry, the man who orchestrated it is obliged to call in a favor from someone who's occasionally called Jack. While it's doubtful that anyone knows his actual name or anything at all about his true identity, or even if he's still alive, he's in his mid-30s and lives completely off the grid, a criminal's criminal who does entirely as he pleases and is almost impossible to get in touch with.

    Would you try another book from Roger Hobbs and/or Jake Weber?

    Probably not


    Would you ever listen to anything by Roger Hobbs again?

    Probably not


    How could the performance have been better?

    Speed up the reading pace


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Ghostman?

    All the ones where "I took out the cellphone battery and threw it out the window"

    Like all 20 of them. That was the most ridiculous part (of many ridiculous parts) of the novel.


    Any additional comments?

    Fairly interesting yarn, however borders on the ridiculous and unbelievable. The narrator bored me to tears with his slow reading pace.

  • A Walk in the Woods: Rediscovering America on the Appalachian Trail

    The Appalachian Trail trail stretches from Georgia to Maine and covers some of the most breathtaking terrain in America - majestic mountains, silent forests, sparking lakes. If you’re going to take a hike, it’s probably the place to go. And Bill Bryson is surely the most entertaing guide you’ll find. He introduces us to the history and ecology of the trail and to some of the other hardy (or just foolhardy) folks he meets along the way - and a couple of bears. Already a classic, A Walk in the Woods will make you long for the great outdoors (or at least a comfortable chair to sit and read in).

    Story
    Would you listen to A Walk in the Woods again? Why?

    No. Too many other books to read.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I'm planning to do day hikes through the AT and wanted to read about someone who had done it.


    Have you listened to any of Rob McQuay’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I haven't listened to him prior. At first I wasn't engaged with the narrator, however as the book progressed I really liked it. His style is engaging and he is the perfect voice for the author.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    n/a


    Any additional comments?

    Quick and funny listen. I was sorry the author completed his walk.
