    "Just OK"

    An abridged version of this would be terrific. I found myself thinking "get on with it" or "who cares" so often in this book that it really dulled the enjoyment of it.

    "Could not stop listening"
    Where does Fat Tuesday rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    at the top. I was hooked from the beginning


    What other book might you compare Fat Tuesday to and why?

    I really can't compare it to anything. It's a great book, the story gets you from the beginning and keep you interested. The ending is something you don't see coming ang doesn't let you down.


    Have you listened to any of Jack Garrett’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This is the first I've heard of his. He nailed every accent.

    "Predictable popcorn"

    I hated myself for enjoying this but if you want a lightweight read that does not require a lot of your attention while you shop or clean on the weekends, then this book is for you. The characters are cut-out but the plot moves rapidly if not somewhat improbably. And you learn a little about life in the Louisiana swamps.

    "Good story and some really unique characters"
    Where does Fat Tuesday rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Better than average, but not my favourite


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Fat Tuesday?

    Can't spoil the ending......


    Any additional comments?

    I found the starting point for the relationship between Burke and Remi too hard to swallow, whilst I was waiting for them to get together, I kept thinking how totally unrealistic it was.
