    "One of my favorite books"
    What did you love best about Nightwing?

    I have loved this book since it was first published. I have read it several times, but thought I would enjoy listening to it. I did not enjoy the performance very well. First of all, they should not have have used someone from back east to read the book. It sounded like he was probably from New York. That just didn't fit with a Native American character. Also, I grew up in the southwest corner of Colorado (the Four Corners area). The reader should have been schooled in how to pronounce the Indian words and names. Many of them were wrong.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Richard Ferrone?

    I'm sure he would be a good narrator for other types of books. He just didn't fit as a Western Native American.

    "Excellent book."

    I bought this because I'd read in a review that Martin Cruz Smith had written some excellent books prior to his Detective Arkady Renko books and that he was quite talented at getting the nuances of other cultures correct. This was the first book I read of his other than the Renko books, and the characters were a Hopi Indian and a white expert on vampire bats. I don't know enough about Hopi culture to know for sure if he had that culture down accurately, but it certainly seemed so. Again, good narration as well.
