Publisher's Summary

George Washington Hayduke III was last seen clinging to a rock face in the wilds of Utah as an armed posse hunted him down for his eco-radicalist crimes. Now he is back with a fiery need for vengeance.

In this sequel to the enormously popular and entertaining The Monkey Wrench Gang, Hayduke teams up with his old pals Doc Sarvis, Seldom Seen Smith, and Bonnie Abbzug in a battle against the world's biggest earth-moving machine. Fundamentalist preacher Dudley Love, the mastermind behind "G O L I A T H", wants to turn the Grand Canyon into a uranium mine, but not if eco-warrior Hayduke and his group of committed environmentalist friends have anything to say about it.

Hayduke Lives! is full of noisy politics and seemingly improbable situations (yet all too real) that showcase Abbey's energetic prose and his infectious comic genius as a writer.

A very good part 2!

This was a very good follow up to The Monkey Wrench Gang! It was a bit more rough with lots of cussing. I enjoyed how the characters waffle from action to being settled with life to action. The reader was good. The voice was great for Doc Sarvis! Time for another Edward Abbey!

Tits and lists... boring, nothing like monkey wrench gang

Follows the MW gang as they are retired for one last job. I really couldn’t wait for the book to be over.

Meh

I'm generally a fan of Abbey's work and the story line seems like a good one, but the narrator's performance definitely took me out of the story here. His tone seemed more sarcastic (or just negative, maybe) than I would have liked. His pace is also varied poorly, dragging in some places where I felt things would have moved faster and rushed in some places that I felt would have gone more slowly. It gave the whole book a very awkward feeling for me. After a couple of chapters, I seriously considered asking for a refund on this title. If you can find it voiced by someone else, I'd recommend that.

Not as good.

The first book was fantastic- this one not so much-too much rambling on and over elaboration.

Pretty hard to top the original.

Loved the Monkey Wrench Gang but this one was a big let down. Wasn't for me.

Follow up

Good beginning and the last few chapters were great. The narrator was also awesome. Felt like the book dragged on through a lot of the middle but was a worthwhile listen if you enjoyed the monkey wrench game.
