This story alternately entertained me and drove me crazy. The internal monologue was maddening at times--reiterating what the reader already knew. But the story itself was intriguing and fun with a wide variety of interesting characters. The end was worth the wait.

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?
Anyone who doesn't mind having things explained to them. Every. Single. Thing.
Would you ever listen to anything by James Hankins again?
Maybe. It was a good basic story, just all the explanations (especially in regard to the main character's own thought process) almost made me give up and I certainly would have skipped those pages in a printed form. The fact that the main character was a serious wimp and not that bright made all the embellishments to the story seem even more unbelievable, even for fiction.
How could the performance have been better?
For the narrator, I liked his voice but some of the character voices were just annoying, like Uncle Carmen's speech impediment. Really could have used some better editing.
If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Brothers and Bones?
Almost all of the explanation in the last couple hours. Let the reader do some of the thinking. That's why we listen to this kind of book.

What about John Rubinstein’s performance did you like?
The narrator doesn't have an irritating voice, hurrah!

What starts out as an intriguing story soon degenerates into complete farce. The characters are two dimensional and clichéd. By the time I got to the final act I was thinking, 'how much more ridiculous can this get?' The answer - very.
