I chose this selection because I was curious about how Tim Matheson would narrate. I knew I enjoyed David Baldacci even though this story was not his usual style. And I was not dissappointed.
I have never traveled on a train like this in my adult years, but I really want to now. My sense is that in today's society, this travel mode will dissappear just like families sitting around the radio after dinner time has. And as it was not quite a Miss Marple mystery, the tale was fun.
This is a pleasant diversion, which is one very big reason why I have a membership on this site. Sometimes I want serious, sometimes I want depth. Sometimes I just want pleasant and simple. This book reminds me of how to be a good friend and activities that would help us enjoy life together.

I read and listen to books avidly but seldom feel strongly enough about a book to write a review. This one is an exception. I love long distance trains and ride as often as possible. I have ridden the Capital Limited and Southwest Chief many times and I have "met" all the passengers in the book at one time or another. Only someone who rides long distance trains would know how realistic the descriptions and situations are. The Amtrak crews in the book are true to life. The back ground sounds in the Audible book are realistic. They must have been taped at the actual stations and on board the trains. If you have ridden the long distant trains this book should bring back some memories, if not, it may inspire you to take a trip just for the experience.
