Thank you, Mr. T.
This was a very involved book with 3 plots weaving together into what I thought was a wonderfully done novel. It was deep & moving and made me think about many issues. I enjoyed the book and the narrator did a wonderfull job. The characters flowed nicely and I thought the narrator was easy to follow. I will look forward to the next Butch Karp novel as he and his family and their characters and assorted friends are always up to someting interesting.

I really wanted this to be better
I like long unabridged books. I like series and Have really enjoyed the characters in the Tanenbaum books in the past. This is the second book with the new ghost writer that I have read and the second time I have been disappointed. (look up Robert K Tanenbaum on the web if you don't know the story)
It is not that the book is bad, it isn't. It is ok and I didn't want to quit listening. The reader is fine, not great but not bad. The story moves very very slowly because the author starts the action and then tells the character's backstory and then continues the action.
Once a character mentions an event he says happened "yesterday" and I thought that is seemed like weeks, not one day, due to all of the backstory and unrelated stuff stuck in.
Also. where are the characters I had really enjoyed in the past?
The twins are barely there.
Marlene shows up briefly.
Lucy, my favorite character, is there with no detail or depth, just skimmed over.
I won't say don't read this. Just be warned.
I am not sure I will buy another Tanenbaum book, and that is a shame, from a former fan.
Instead I think I will look up the former ghost writer's books and buy them.
