Found this to be earlier work, not readable compared with Burke's mature work.Stopped reading after trying three stories and switched to Going After Cacciato, which is terrific. Liked a couple of Burke's more recent works, but can't read them too closely together or I fine a sameness in them.
What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
No sense of a real story, just a collections of thoughts, to make this a 4 or 5 star it would need to be rewritten.
Has The Convict and Other Stories turned you off from other books in this genre?
I love James Burke but this was really bad. I will still buy his books but not if they are not part of a series.
Did the narration match the pace of the story?
The narration was fine, not great, but not bad.
You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?
Not that I could fine, I tried listening to most of the stories but found it hard to get through any of them. I kept hoping the next story would be better but did not find this to be the case.
