    "Suprising"

    What a great listen! Kept me locked in form beginning to end. I could see a sheriff like that one in a small town. I loved it.

    "boilerplate DeMille"

    Spencerville has all the familiar literary conventions of author Nelson DeMille. There is the strong, smart hero, the beautiful love interest and of course the despicable powerful bad guy. A true DeMille fan will love this epic. Unfortunately it is formula-like in predictability for someone who has listened to many others in his body of works. When I finally got to the end it was certainly satisfying but also a relief to finish it. I need a break from this author for a while but will return for more eventually. I'll be looking for a next book that isn't so formula driven.

    Story
    "Not a typical DeMille"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Couldn't recommend this book to anyone that enjoys DeMille's other works. Not typical of DeMille at all. This book was a "romance novel" - a very violent romance novel, but still a romance novel nevertheless.


    Has Spencerville turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Not sure. If this had been my first DeMille book, for certain I wouldn't have bothered reading/listening to any more.


    What about Scott Brick???s performance did you like?

    Scott Brick always does a stellar performance regardless of the genre of the book he's performing.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    NO, NO, NO, NO.....................


    Any additional comments?

    I'm still groaning.,

    "Twisty, turny tale. A great story"

    I read this book years ago. The telling of this story made it all come to life.

    "Vulgar"

    I love Nelson DeMille's books but this was so vulgar with language and graphic sex that it may be my last. Too bad audible won't rate books before you buy them.

    "Just What A Summer Audio Should Be - ENJOYABLE"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Spencerville to be better than the print version?

    I have read several DeMille books but not the written version of Spencerville. The audio version was very good.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Spencerville?

    I honestly enjoyed the whole book and didn't have any specific memorable moments.


    What about Scott Brick’s performance did you like?

    Scott Brick did a wonderful job reading this book. Very pleasant voice. I would definitely listen to other books read by him.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I absolutely wanted to keep listening to this book. I looked forward to having the opportunity to tune back in every free moment.

    "Great Listen"

    Great listen

    Not DeMille's best..but very good. A little dark, and sometimes a little long winded but definitely worth the listen.

    "This has got to be DeMille's worst work!!!"

    Do not waste a credit on this rambling lamenting garbage. Nothing but hours and hours of shoulda, coulda, woulda about love lost. Ridiculously bad by such a well-known author
