Farfetched even for fiction.
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.

This book is absolutely tedious..
Any additional comments?
I really wish I would have read all the reviews on this book before I wasted a credit on it. The writing of this book was absolutely awful. The over description of EVERYTHING that didn't matter was incredibly frustrating. It seemed like the author thought everyone had short term amnesia and forgot everything he said 5 minutes previously because he seemed to feel the need to repeat everything over and over and over & that didn't change throughout the whole book. It didn't help that the narrator's voice matched the boring tone of this book either. When I listen to a book and it's absolutely horrible because of the narration I wonder to myself "would this book have been better had I just read it myself?" There are some that I know without a doubt only seem so awful because the narrators are so bad but this book, would have been horrible regardless of the narrator. I would never recommend this book.

Fast paced detective writing from the get-go!
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Definitely! Enjoyable fast paced plot, some great twists and turns, easy reading/listening.
What about John Rubinstein’s performance did you like?
The narrator doesn't have an irritating voice, hurrah!

Utterly unbelievable thriller
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.
