    "Beware the Preacher"

    I love listening to the guy who narrates this, he also did No Country for Old Men and funnily enough there was a similarity in one of the main baddies to the McCarthy murderer.

    A group of Asian women are found buried in a church's grounds. The Sheriff is a grizzled Korean POW still stuck in the past, while a local Afghan vet is somehow involved in the women's deaths.

    "Great story, good narration, but......"

    This is a really good story and the narrator is perfect for it, but the author must have been the star pupil at the Analogies-R-Us school of writing. Every single scene or piece of action had an analogy, even the food that was being eaten. I realise that when reading or listening to a book that there has to be a certain amount of description or scene setting, but this was ridiculous, to the extent that sometimes one analogy wasn't enough for a scene and in case we "didn't get" what was being described, another analogy was given. It was hard to concentrate on what would have been an excellent story, because it kept wandering off into yet another over descriptive sunrise or plate of pasta. I don't mind a book being slow, when the plot or characters are being built as this adds to the story, however this author's style really detracted from it.

    "V-e-r-y S-l-o-o-o-o-w"

    No matter how I tried this book failed to keep my interest. It should be interesting, the plot is good but everything is so drawn out that it fails miserably.
