Diverse Short and Gritty Crime Tales

Would you consider the audio edition of Evil Grows & Other Thrilling Tales to be better than the print version?

Despite not having read the print version first, there is no doubt in my mind that the audio version is better simply because of how well Paul Heitsch voiced the stories. They were great on their own clearly, but the addition of his efforts definitely added to the overall ensemble in a way that just text would never have been able to reach.

What did you like best about this story?

What I liked best about the stories, is the twists that I've come to expect while reading through short stories of all sorts of genres. The number of double crosses and situations in which winning wasn't an option numbered as high as the number of stories involved. In some cases the author keeps the extra information from the reader, but the involved character's actions reveal that something's not kosher while in other stories people who have been involved in hard lives get a glimmer of hope before it's smashed out by the boot of the next guy on the totem pole.

What does Paul Heitsch bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

As I mentioned in the beginning of the review he gives the characters even more character than the author had an opportunity to write in. His emotions behind the characters made them seem more real and had me personally rooting for at least a few characters who I knew were going to lose in the end but I couldn't help myself.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

If there ever was a book that I would want to do just that for, it would be this one just because it was somewhat short but had all the excitement and intrigue and mystery of a book several times longer.

Any additional comments?

I received the code for this audiobook for free in exchange for an honest review and honestly could see myself reviewing more of either Estleman's writing or Heitsch's performances because of how much I enjoyed this book.
