    "They don't make 'em like this anymore"

    While this is a good story and who-done-it, it's also a tribute to senior citizens and police officers. My favorite part was its glorious humor. The politically incorrect main character, Buck is a one-of-a-kind old coot that we all know. I highly recommend this and its predecessor Never Grow Old to anyone with a dry sense of humor and an old person in their life...and everyone else as well.

    "Buck Schatz maybe an acquired taste, GREAT to me."
    Where does Don't Ever Look Back rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I have close to 500 books in my library and I classify by, "will I re-listen to this book or not?" I will listen to the Buck Schatz series again.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    This is an inane question. If Audible wishes for their listeners to give helpful reviews then ask questions that will illicit such answers.


    Which character – as performed by Nick Sullivan – was your favorite?

    Nick Sullivan does an excellent job as a narrator. Note, see above question.


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

    Buck frequently made me laugh and laugh and laugh.

    "Just as good if not better than the first one"

    What a great book. Another adventure for Buck. I missed the involvement of his grandson. Tequila is in this one but not as much. I love the banter and especially the techie talk between them. Again the Jewish culture subtlety in spot on-not too much just the right amount and easily understood. And again so many laugh out loud moments-I know people were looking at funny, seemingly laughing at nothing.

    Again to the author: Buck could not have been quiet for 30 + years since retiring, no way. You better write a couple of prequels for us!

    "Terrific"

    The Buck Schatz books by Daniel Friedman are two of my all-time favorites on Audible. Great character, really funny, interesting plot and setting. I hope he writes more.
