An interesting slice of history, well told. However it might’ve been a better novel with a hundred fewer pages.

Loved this story!

I have not enjoyed a novel this much in a while. The story itself is interesting but it is the manner in which the author tells it that makes this novel so captivating. Very original writing indeed. We follow the narrative deep into the psychology and emotions of the characters and their interactions. The situations are at once stifling and absurd. At times I cringed, at others I laughed out loud, and I always felt I was right in there with the narrator, thanks to Ms Brennan’s remarkable reading performance.

I enjoyed this trip down McCammon’s memory lane. Good writing as usual, many interesting details woven together and reappearing here and there. There is even suspense as the different threads unwind towards the end.

Great story, great performance

As I began listening to my first story by Robert Masello, I was relieved to find it so well-written, and the pace just perfect. I had to get used to Mr. Furlong’s very rapid reading, and after a while, it ceased to get in the way of my listening enjoyment.

Love this series

I thoroughly enjoy the characters, the pace, the extraordinary descriptions of places and settings, and the narrator does a sterling job! What’s not to like? Well written, suspenseful entertainment .

An orgy if violence but a great narrator

All the characters in this story are vividly brought to life by the narrator, but what a lot of blood, death and sadness. A class is tale of tragedy and vindication, quite well written.

Such a good narrator!

These episodes are like candy: not very nutritious but fun to indulge in while I do other things. Neil Dudgeon is so good at playing the different characters, you can almost see them.

Perfect narration

Jake Gyllenhaal’s voice tone and rhythm made this revisitation of a classic a very pleasant listening experience indeed.
