I loved Border Songs. It is unusual, and it is delightfully so. The "hero" is truly heroic. If you are a birdwatcher, you will chirp with delight. (Sorry, couldn't resist.)

Jim Lynch has a special voice as a writer, and the narrator captured it very well. Please do give this book a listen. I'm looking forward to Lynch's third novel, due out soon.

Engrossing and well narrated.

After hearing Richard Poe read East Of Eden - my favorite book in world so I had expectations - I was so impressed by his performance I sought out other books read by him and bought this without knowing a thing about it. It's a wonderful book.
