    "My First Audible Book"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Give a Boy a Gun to be better than the print version?

    I was going to get the Kindle version but then I saw in the review that the Kindle version has some problems. I had gotten an Audible gift subscription for Christmas so I thought I would try the Audible version. I was going on a long trip and it seemed the perfect time to explore Audible. I have not seen the print version of this book.


    What other book might you compare Give a Boy a Gun to and why?

    This is also the first Jack Olsen book I have "read" and I will definitely seek out others. Right now I cannot think of any other book that compares to it, even though I read a lot of true crime books.


    Which character – as performed by Rich Miller – was your favorite?

    Bill Pogue, the older game warden. It was also interesting to hear about Claude Jr. and Claude Sr. There were a lot of very interesting characters in this story.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    There was already a TV movie made about this, but I have not seen it yet. I think a good tag line would be A Misguided Justice.


    Any additional comments?

    I enjoyed this book as an Audible book very much. My next Audible book will be another Jack Olsen book. The narrator was excellent. More like a storyteller than a reader and I really enjoy storytelling performances.

    "This book is okay..."

    Not one of the better Olson's books. I wasn't thrilled with the narration, but maybe due to how the story was written.

    "Dull"

    The story line was very good. However the presentation was dull. I finished it but I found it hard to stay focused.

    What was one of the most memorable moments of Give a Boy a Gun?

    the judge's decision at the end of the book...restored some faith in the judicial process...
