River on Fire

This was a pretty good book, I giggled a few times out loud...The end left a little to be desired.

Very entertaining

Well written, read and good speed. Not sure about discussion at end of story though.

Great story telling and engaging characters

Loved his best day and the characters were well defined and likable (except Sam). Interesting take on the period.

I have very mixed feelings about this novel

Frankly, I'd much rather listen to a Joe Dillard novel. River of Fire is on balance a disappointment after reading all seven of Pratt's Joe Dillard novels as well as Justice Redeemed. I wonder what led Scott Pratt to write River of Fire because it is so very, very different from his other novels. The classroom type assignments at the end off the audiobook are obviously asking the reader to find deeper meaning than I found. Had I bought this Pratt novel before any of his legal thrillers I definitely would have not purchased another Scott Pratt book. My big issue with the book is whether to give it one star or two. My only question now is whether to return it.

Great read

I am a Scott Pratt fan, so I looked forward to reading this new offering from him. I loved this book and I am curious about from where in Mr. Pratt's heart and soul this book came...and I wonder if additional one-off stories will be available. I certainly enjoyed this book, but I'm also looking forward to more books about Joe.

River On Fire

I have never been so disappointed in a book and have read hundreds. Don't know what Scott Pratt was thinking.
