    "Slow but surprising"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Sure


    Has John Crow’s Devil turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No it hasn't.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Robin Miles?

    Sure


    Could you see John Crow’s Devil being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Not at all.


    Any additional comments?

    Slow start. The characters were typical but well rounded. I found myself become very irritated with the blind faith of these characters which means the author did a great job of forming them and exposing their flaws. The ending was not expected. I loved the setting and the cultural beliefs of the characters. They reminded me of several family members! Overall, pretty good read.
