I went on a Joe Lansdale tear, listening to 9 in a row. In retrospect I wouldn't do that again as the same author may wear on you unless he/she is one of your favorites. E.g., I could listen to Ken Follett and James Lee Burke books one after another, but Lansdale isn't as good - not bad, but certainly not one of my all time favorites.
Overall, the story was pretty good. For the most part I looked forward to getting back to it and finishing it. The characters were good and held my interest.
While this book is the second about "Camp Rapture", a town / settlement in East Texas, there is no need to listen to them in order. They are separated by a couple / few generations and independent.
The narrator was ok, but more akin to an annoying B-List bad actor.
Overall, I would recommend the book as it was entertaining and held my attention!
