atmospheric mystery

i enjoyed listening to this story unfold. the story and characters were interesting and fully formed. i enjoyed the regional cadence and phrasing. the narrator was excellent at dealing with the flashback material -- keeping the listener current with the sequencing. there were enough twists and turns to keep one listening.

Lame and rambling...

I still don't know what this book was about. Where there are some clever sentences? Absolutely. Do I doubt that the author is a bright guy? Not at all. Will I be going back to this author anytime soon? No.in my humble opinion, this story failed on multiple levels. I don't know enough about fiction writing to provide a sophisticated analysis or anything, but I know that it's a miracle I got through this one.I chose this author because I greatly enjoyed the movie Drive, based on his book. So this was a disappointing experience.
