I am an avid reader, and love to listen to books as well.
Yes, I would love to read another book by Ricard Fleshman -especially the first book of the series. It would help to understand the main characters much better.
Sort of; the author wrote a great book, and there was plenty of investigation aspects of the story. And I love the fact that someone actually wrote a book -albeit fiction- about mental health combined with the investigation aspect of the book.
Yet, I don't think that the book kept me totally on edge. And I'm not sure why.
The performance? While I connected with Nicholas Patrella's voice, I don't quite like the way he kept the pace of the reading... it's just a bit... rushed, I think.
Otherwise, I like the way Nicholas read the book.
Yeah, I could see this book being made into a movie, but not exactly a TV series. There are so many criminal shows out there that this book inspired tv series would just blend into the other shows... but that's just me.
I'm not sure who I'd pick to play the characters. I just don't.
Thanks to audioboom and audible for a great chance to read the book!
I was able to read the book for free thanks to audioboom and audible.
And since I am allowed to give an honest opinion... I can enjoy the book one way or another.
Thank God for books of all kinds and ears to hear
Revisiting New Orleans in my mind. It's been so many years since I've been there but it still holds such a special place in my heart.
the "voodoo" stuff - I don't mean to make light of it - I'm just far enough removed from it to not be scared anymore but I still respect it. I also liked the FBI twist until it just petered out and left me wondering why it was in there to begin with.
does not fit. I just crave a deeper voice for Mose. The other 'voices' were okay, even good. Maniacal - bugged me. It's a word that a reader of a thriller should know how to pronounce. It could have been better, and could have been much worse. Had he been reading aloud at a local library I would have been impressed.
Voodoo detective saves the world. In comic book graphics it might work.
I actually enjoyed this book more than the first and still love the story concept. Whereas the first was too meandering and long, this was too abbreviated. I do look forward to more and hope the 3rd one is the charm."This audiobook was provided by the author, narrator, or publisher at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review courtesy of AudiobookBlast dot com."

I like the New Orleans setting. The characters could be fleshed out a bit. I didn't feel this was a stand alone book. And I haven't read others in the series.
Detective Byone, the main character.
He started by almost speed reading in the early parts. I'm a fast reader and talker, but this was distracting to me. That settled into a more comfortable pace. There were a few odd pronunciations. Accents were strange... just off.
Possibly. Peter Falk, except he passed away.
I might try other works in this series and even other readings by Nicholas Patrella. But, ... I was disapponted here.

I said in my review of the first book in this series, I wouln't continue. I am glad to say I went ahead and tried this one. I liked this book much better.
The narration was well done. The characters were excellently portrayed. The narrator showed enthusiasm for the readers enjoyment.This is a HUGE improvement over the
first book.A few words were mispronounced but could overlook them because of the entertainment value.
