the narrator was a great fit for the tone of the novel and the character of Josh.
Having read this book in both a "work in progress" phase and in a final published phase I was quite happy to hear it would also be available in audio format. The narrator is a great fit - adding yet another layer of enjoyment. The story itself is a glimpse into a simpler time, both because Josh, the main character, lives a simple life and because the novel was written to reflect ideals like: personal responsibility, honesty and dependability.
Yes, I'd recommend Outlaws to a friend (actually I have).
It's a good story, with likable characters--and dislikeable for the gang members. Plenty of action and build up to a good climax.
Josh, the retired cop, and the rural setting.
He was consistent and had good pacing.
No, no extreme reactions. Made me smirk and chuckle a few times but no all out laughter.
I'd say, listen to the sample and read the description. If any part of them catch even a little bit of your interest, you'll really enjoy the story.
