Would you listen to Devils in Exile again? Why?

I started to listen for a second time, but then I realized it wasn't so heavily detailed that I'd enjoy it again.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Devils in Exile?

I related to the main character very well, it was easy for me to imagine the situations and emotions the author described, minus the criminal activity...

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

First listen for me, but he did a great job.

Any additional comments?

This book intrigued me. If it were to be made into a movie like 'Prince of Thieves', I'd definitely see it. However, the screenplay adaptation would have potential to be better. Parts of the book needed more detail. Some of the relationships between the characters needed better development. The beginning, character development, main parts of the plot, and the ending were well built, but the buildup was light, the suspense-driven juicy stuff wasn't juicy enough. That's the stuff that makes you crave the end just to see what happens.
