    Story
    "This was the place MacDonald should have stopped"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Cinnamon Skin to be better than the print version?

    Having read this book when it came out--and audiobooks were in their primitive infancy (remember all those cassettes in large boxes that came through the mail?), it really is difficult to compare the printed and audio versions of this series. I actually can remember when the earliest Travis McGee titles were paperback originals back in the late 1960s.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    This is a book where Meyer has a star turn, but the first victim (in the story line) and the villain are three-dimensional, well realized characters.


    Have you listened to any of Robert Petkoff’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    He has been remarkable consistent throughout this entire series--it must be approaching 175 hours of reading. It always is difficult taking on a well-known character, but for the most part his "voices" have been well thought out and logical. I would be happy to listen to him again.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I was pleased that this series recovered nicely after it flagged a bit as the number of titles approached twenty.


    Any additional comments?

    In the future (now) sociologists and environmental historians will have a field day reading through these volumes for the commentary on the decay of the American dream--and the destruction of Florida through over development--from the 1960s through the 1980s. These must be some of the earliest soundings of environmental alarms to appear in mainstream literature.Listen to these now.

    Rumor has it that one of them will become a major motion picture soon and I would be surprised if they can do it without "damaging" the original material. Just compare MacDonald's "The Executioners" with either of the movie versions of it (both titled, "Cape Fear").

    "The best of McGee"

    This is; in my opinion; the best of the McGee series. The relationship between Travis and Anne is well crafted. The recovery of Meyer from the events from "Free Fall in Crimson is both plaintive and redemptive." The road trip that McGee and Meyer take to Texas is especially well done. The ultimate climatic scene is more understated than the usual McGee finale. A great read all the way through.
