    "Short Detective Story"
    If you could sum up For My Brother in three words, what would they be?

    unexpected ending


    What did you like best about this story?

    The story had very little to do with detectives and more about Donnie the brother and how he was hurt by his brother's death.


    What does Joshua Bennington bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He has a nice voice and the narration was easy to listen to.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    At the end when Donnie joins his brother.


    Any additional comments?

    I would recommend the book. It was a good short story read by a good narrator

    Story
    "Good story, didn't care for the reader..."
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I would recommend the book itself, but not the audible version. The reader's breathy unnatural tone and the way he spat out many of the words was annoying. His characterization of Det. Strong made him sound like a grumpy curmudgeon. I got the feeling the reader was trying to emulate the late great Frank Muller, but didn't pull it off.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Parts of the plot were similar to previous book, but it was good and suspenseful.


    How could the performance have been better?

    A different reader would have made the book much more enjoyable to listen to; his tone and inflections were distracting from the book itself.


    Do you think For My Brother needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Perhaps with a different reader.


    Any additional comments?

    I really love the way the author writes - no obscenities or graphic descriptions of sex or violence, demonstrating that, indeed, those things are not necessary to good storytelling!
