No it hasn't.

Would you listen to another book narrated by Robin Miles?


Could you see John Crow’s Devil being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

Not at all.

Any additional comments?

Slow start. The characters were typical but well rounded. I found myself become very irritated with the blind faith of these characters which means the author did a great job of forming them and exposing their flaws. The ending was not expected. I loved the setting and the cultural beliefs of the characters. They reminded me of several family members! Overall, pretty good read.
