Would you listen to Black Machetes again? Why?
I don't listen to books twice, so no.
What did you like best about this story?
How surprising it was. Not the normal genre I follow to be sure, and the story didn't go where I thought it would end up. Very unusual and a fascinating character study.
Which character – as performed by Punch Audio and Peter Berkrot – was your favorite?
Orlando was a compelling character.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Too long for that, but i certainly tried!
Any additional comments?
I was provided this book by Audioblast in exchange for a fair and unbiased review.I am glad I was. This is an outstanding offering, which has plot turns, some violence and drama, and genuine character development. It is not for the squeamish to be sure, and it is definitely and adult novel.I highly recommend this. Potentially one of the best of the year so far. Get it and enjoy it.

Really good intense, gritty and disturbing.<br/><br/>A well written dark, intense and twisted story not for the faint of heart, squeamish or those easily offended. This book covers a variety of vile acts such as rape, murder, kidnapping and child abuse to name a few. So be forewarned. I had to stop my ipod several times and take a breath before continuing. The story pulls you in quickly and once you start listening you can't stop.<br/> <br/>The story continually moves forward through a roller-coaster of events that effect all of the Black Machetes in different ways. Despair, heartbreak, hope, humor, survival, suspense and triumph. You can't help but get emotionally attached to Ben, Octavio, Demarcus and Scooter. While this is a hard story to listen to at times, it is well worth your time.<br/><br/> R.K Howard you have gained another fan and I will definitely be putting you on my list of authors I recommend. <br/><br/>Peter Berkrot did an awesome job with the narration. Great voice's for all the character's. He didn't just read the story, he made the character's and their emotions come to life. He is one of the best narrator's I have listened to. It was scary how well he portrayed the Rabid Dog and Wade. <br/><br/>This audiobook was provided by the author, narrator or publisher at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review courtesy of AudiobookBoom<br/>
