One of the best stories, definitely the worst narrator

The story is intriguing and wonderfully well-written. The narrator is awful. It’s like it was his first time or he was just reading it off the page. Really awful. Hope they can re-record it at some point.

Disappointing audio book

If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?

The story was very long winded, I felt there was not much of a story line and was padded out to try and make the story work. I have read a few of James Lee Burke's books and this is the first that I have not enjoyed.

What will your next listen be?

A discovery of witches by Deborah Harkness

Who might you have cast as narrator instead of Mark Hammer?

Not sure, I don't think anyone could have this book interesting for me.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Jolie Blon's Bounce?

Too much to say.

Any additional comments?

Don't recommend this book.
