    Story
    "His other works are even better!"
    If you could sum up Scar Tissue in three words, what would they be?

    Pleasantly disturbing plots


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The ex-con bartender character hooked me into that story because of the father / daughter plot.


    What does Marcus Sakey bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He has a pleasant speaking voice and it actually seemed like he was able to change it up depending on the story or character.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes.


    Any additional comments?

    It kills me to give Sakey less than 5 stars for Scar Tissue, but compared to his other books that I've read like "The Blade Itself" and "The Amateurs", this one is not quite as great. That being said, I must say that in at least three of the stories he did do a great job of getting me to think about what happens next to the characters after I read the strange twist at the end of the stories. He also did his usually exceptional job of helping me visualize scenes and events and feelings using descriptions that were fresh, highly imaginative and very effect. They were so creative I was tempted to start keeping a list, but I didn't want to stop listening long enough to do that.Sakey is a magician when it comes to creating characters (good or bad) who immediately draw your concern and he is very effective at crafting disturbing situations and subplots around them so you remain uncomfortable throughout the entire book. I marvel at how quickly, yet subtly he manages to get me hooked. Sakey is probably my favorite modern fiction writer and I'm looking forward to listening to his book, At The City's Edge, that he mentioned in Scar Tissue.
