really enjoyed the book
How can this author write in such a way you cringe waiting for the other shoe to fall see such lovely county and ordinary people then cloud your detective skills and have a hero with so many character flaws in such twisted word painted pictures WOW what a book
I couldn't stop listening. Many twists and turns in the plot. Although the main character was hard to like, I feel he represents many "real-life" people so he is an ordinary person.
I thought that is was an excellent book. Could not stop listening and was on the edge of my seat waiting to find out who did but also not wanting the book to end.
Quite a lot of cliche and silly decisions on the part of various characters, and the real action of the story is limited to the final discs. That said, it flowed right along and kept my interest. Not thrilling enough to be a "thriller" but still an adventure and a mystery.
The story was decent but I found I had a hard time listening to it as I did not like the main character. He was gruff, rude and seem to take advantage of his friends and others who tried to help him out. If the author was trying to invoke sympathy for this character, he did not succeed.
