The Missing

I really liked this book. The author takes you on a journey that puts you in the Narrator's pocket and "doesn't let you out" until the very end. Wow, what a thrilling ride.

Poignant period fiction

Would you consider the audio edition of The Missing to be better than the print version?

I feel that Henry Strozier's reading enhances an excellent and readable story.

What did you like best about this story?

The character Sam Simoneaux seems like a real person -- kind, gentle, flawed, a man with realistic ambitions and unfortunate luck who perseveres. All the characters in Mr. Gautreaux's story are unique and realistic, some more fleshed out than others. The story flows along with the ups and downs and drama of ordinary life in a difficult time in American history.

What about Henry Strozier’s performance did you like?

I seek out books read by Henry Strozier. His voice soothes my mind, as well as bringing characters to life. He paces a book perfectly so every word has the significance intended by the writer.

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

A story of loss and living.

Any additional comments?
