Would you ever listen to anything by Anne Hillerman again?

Maybe, I love reading about the Southwest. I looked forward to listening to this book but was very disappointed.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

The narrator read the conversation in a slooooooow "Native American" dialect...giving the wrong impression of her characters.

Would you listen to The Woodcutter again? Why?

Yes, and I did! Many times I restarted a chapter, to listen more carefully to details. The story never followed the path I anticipated... many unexpected twists.

Would you listen to The Bartender's Tale again? Why?

Yes, I would listen again, and again, and again. I'm not sure which I enjoyed more, the narrator or the story, but both entwine to make this one of the nicest stories I've ever listen to. David Aaron Baker nailed the accents and innuendos of each character, and their are a lot of them.

Who was your favorite character and why?

The story is wrapped around the adolescent years of a Midwestern boy in the sixties.. His life is not all that unusual, but unfolds in a way that you don't want to miss a single adventure.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

The Bartender's Tale; straight up with a twist!

Any additional comments?

Read or listen to this story! I read it based on the publisher's comments: "Time and again, Ivan Doig has proven himself to be a treasure of American letters. Critical darlings and New York Times best sellers, his novels target the heart of the human experience and never miss the mark." Absolutely true!!!
