    "A Genius"

    I've been reading J.L.B. for years now and he just gets better and better.His prose and sense of place and atmosphere are almost poetic. His characters spring "alive" from the page and stick in your mind like mollasses on a flies feet. Compelling.

    "Excellent"

    Will Patton gives great voice on this reading, and the storytelling is superb. Burke's style is always evident conjuring vivid images in the imagination. I'm trying to get hold of Rain Gods - the prequel to this, but Patton's version isn't available. I might have to open an account on audible.com just to get it. Great stuff.

    "A Great Read!"

    Another JLB masterpiece. Rich prose, great storyline and incredible characters, all interwoven by one of the great American storytellers. My late dear Dad recommended JLB almost 10 years ago and I've read all his work. Feast Day of Fools is one of my favourites. Will Patten narrates superbly. Highly recommended.

    "It's a men's world"
    If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Right, it was not for me. I suppose hard boilt desert lovers will get a lot out of it. James Lee Burke's done a fantastic job in describing all those characters but for my taste it's definitely too raw and to violent.


    Has Feast Day of Fools put you off other books in this genre?

    Definitely


    Which character – as performed by Will Patton – was your favourite?

    The sheriff


    You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Absolutely - it's great literature: timing, eccentricity, landscape, atmosphere very impressive


    Any additional comments?

    For all the grand reviews it's got: I just like to warn off people with a need for a bit more human warmth, I just could not bear to finish this book
