Over-the-top absurd

This is a really neat idea for a book, but it went way beyond the believable and wound up on the corny side. In one word: disappointment.

Blood Makes Noise - story of men affected by Evita

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, if they are interested in historical novels of Latin America

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

Not really, but I already knew how the events really played out historically.

What about David de Vries’s performance did you like?

He held a tone of resignation in his voice that made me think of the people I knew who lived and still live in Argentina. Added to the credibility.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

How Evita Peron's gigantic ego and narcissism led to her adoration by masses of otherwise sane people.

Any additional comments?

Argentina is the land where I was born. It still escapes my understanding.

disappointed

I read (listen to) 8 to 10 books a month in 1, 2 or 3 hour sessions so I've followed many story lines. I found this book to be difficult to follow. Perhaps it's one of the few that should be listened to in one sitting or with few and short breaks. After 4 hours of listening I am unable to effectively explain more than the basics of what is actually happening in this story. I don't think the character development was done well nor am I able to comfortably flow between scenes and time periods. David de Vries does a good job with the narration. His tempo, diction and emotion are what kept me going after 2 hours. I would not recommend this book to a friend.

No author's note in the audio

I suggest you read the paper book b/c it includes the author's note. I did like the story! VERY interesting in fact!
