    "Fantastic Read"

    I couldn't stop listening to this book. Andrew
    Klavan is maybe the best story teller that I have
    ever heard or read. You will want to listen to the
    books in order: Dynamite Road then Shotgun Alley
    then Damnation Street.

    "very impressed!"

    I knew nothing about this author, but took a chance based on the preview I listened to. I really enjoyed the characters, the suspense, and the fact that the characters all have their own faughts. I really enjoyed the author as narrator and I plan to listen to his follow up to this book next.

    "Awful"
    What would have made Dynamite Road better?

    Dynamite Road would have been better if the small sliver of a plot had more to it.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    I am now listening to Predictably Irrational.


    What does Andrew Klavan bring to the story that you wouldn???t experience if you just read the book?

    I thought Klavan was a very good reader. He acted out the character's voices well and in a non-distracting way. He was among the best readers I've heard.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Dynamite Road?

    I think Dynamite Road had enough real meat to be a short story, which is a shame. The characters, though stereotypical, were fun. He created a huge build up to what was ultimately a wafer thin story.


    Any additional comments?

    I really enjoy Klavan's political writing and enjoyed Empire of Lies.

    Story
    "Can not be Christian who wrote this"
    Would you try another book from Andrew Klavan and/or Andrew Klavan?

    I have read other books by Andrew Klavan and they were written with non offensive gutter language, like this one. Would I read another of his books, no, I am not going to download one of his books only to find out I have to delete it because of the language


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    A book with a known author that has shown they can write about a subject without having to use language that is not acceptable for children and adults that do not which to hear.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Did not get but the first couple of pages before the language caused me to delete it


    What character would you cut from Dynamite Road?

    na


    Any additional comments?

    Should have a language rating for your ebooks so people that do care about not hearing gutter talk can keep from wasting their money. I know this will not be posted as this will go against your money over people's needs but I wanted to give my 2 cents.

    "Awesome!!!"

    Love Klavan. Loved this story. Well told by the author himself. I almost couldn't put down the iPhone. But, unfortunately I had to when the 3 year was in the room (language). Otherwise, great story, and well told. Looking forward to other audio books from Klavan.

    "Good writing style, but very foul-mouthed"

    The author's reading is excellent, and the suspense and story is engrossing. However there *are* phrases that don't start with the 'F'-bomb that can be used for character dialog. I felt like I'd spent the day listening to skid-row bums trading insults with ex-convicts.
