Where does Black Irish rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
This is my first audible book so it ranks fairly high. But it was a good first selection and now I'm hooked!
What did you like best about this story?
The author left little clues all through the story so it feels like the reader is solving the mystery along with the main character Absalom. The characters were interesting and the back drop of the collapse of Buffalo and the rust belt made the story seem real and alive.
What about David H. Lawrence XVII’s performance did you like?
I liked that even though the main character was a women it never felt like David H. Lawrence was over reaching.

This was a can't put it down read. Great writing, great performance, and a real whodunnit. The author kept it clean and tight throughout, but the ending is a bit convoluted. I usually don't like an author having to summarize the action at the end but it was helpful in this instance. So much story! There was a lot of beautiful writing and original and creative metaphors as well.
I won't summarize the story since the Publisher Summary does that, but I will say Talty has written a humdinger.
I want to say something about narrators. Though the main character is female, David Lawrence XVII was perfect. I find that men can do women characters much better than women can do male characters. I just finished Did You Miss Me by Karen Rose. The female narrator was awful with male characters of which there were many. I almost decided to return it and buy it on Kindle. Authors...the right narrator can make or break a book.
Anyway, I can't wait to read Talty's next, and I hope Absalom has her own series.
