Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

This book is an interesting interpretation of the Western genre, set in Oregon and California during the gold rush. I found the story compelling and the reader really gave the characters depth.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Eli, the narrator. He was sympathetic while being flawed.

What about William Hope???s performance did you like?

He did a wonderful job of interpreting the different characters through nuances of speech.

Brilliant Performance by William Hope

This was recommended to me by someone to whom I'll be returning for more advice! It's a darkly humorous take of fraternal assassins in the old west, and chronicles their journey to their latest quarry in gold-rush California. Sometimes strange, but not in an inaccessible way - think more Coen Brothers than David Lynch.

William Hope's modes of speech are superbly evocative; and should be award-winning if there is any justice. Just a brilliant listen.
