These comments address the The Tucker Series, as of this writing four novels written by David Johnson. All of the unabridged audiobooks are narrated by Laural Merlington. Lengths vary from just under six hours to just over ten. I was introduced to the first book via an Audible Daily Deal and enjoyed the story enough to finish the entire series.
The stories center around the lead character, Tucker. Tucker is an elderly woman, a victim of child abuse, who has been saddled with the raising of her three grandchildren. The setting is a life of extreme poverty in rural Tennessee.
My initial reaction is positive with a few codicils. Working through all four novels became a bit tedious, many areas a bit too preachy for my taste .. especially in books three and four. The characters were also very teary, lots of crying and angst. For those squeamish of the topic, some terrible child abuse is vividly described. There are many instances that had me rolling my eyes … some situations and character behavior lacks credibility.
Reason I liked these stories? Character development and narration. David Johnson does a terrific job with the character of Tucker. I’m sure you’ll find other characters in the stories that are well developed and believable. Narration by Merlington is excellent … unique voices for all characters.
If you are interested in a familial tale, with character development exceptional, you will enjoy The Tucker Series.
If you’re turned off by books that are very preachy and loaded with christian values, these are not for you.
I love espionage, legal, and detective thrillers but listen to most genres. Very frequent reviews. No plot spoilers! Please excuse my typos!
This is Book 4 in the Tucker Series. Almost 20 years have passed since Tucker's Way and Tucker's three grandchildren (August, March, and April) are now adults. This is March's book. We finally find out who his father is, and that he is a very bad man.
This is a superb novel that may deserve a 5 star rating, but it has a bit much religion for me. Nevertheless. March On does fill in some previously unknown aspects of March's life. This novel, like the others in the series, is classified as in the contemporary fiction genre; however, as a stand alone novel it fits better in the mystery/thriller category.
Narration is superb!
I recommend all books in the Tucker series.
Happened upon the first book in this series and have been enthralled right through the last. Gripping story and layered characters kept me coming back for more. Great read with a deeper message. I recommend this series to all.
How do I phrase this without offending anyone? I enjoyed the entire series, but found myself turned off by this last book's(March On) God/prayer/religious references literally every few minutes. I'm not against religion, but had I known the book would be so thickly peppered with it I'm not sure I'd have downloaded it.
Right from the first paragraph it grabs you and you don't want to put it down. The characters are believable and down to earth. The narrative is the best I have heard so far. I can't wait to read the last book.
Loved this series. Narration was excellent. Great combination of thriller & faith with some romance in the mix. First time I knew of this author and will look for more by him.
