What made the experience of listening to Finding Moon the most enjoyable?
Tony Hillerman is a very good writer and makes you feel that you really know the characters. His story structure is easy to stay with.
What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?
The biggest problem we found with this narrator is his lack of consistency with the pronunciation of Asian places and names. It seems that he did not research how to pronounce either and made it difficult to feel that one was in an Asian setting. It became too "Americanized" and felt out of place.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
We had listened to this book in the abridged version and although we prefer the unabridged version of any book we did prefer the original narrator.
Any additional comments?
Tony Hillerman's creations are always pleasant to read (or listen to). It's just too bad that publishers feel the need to condense a book for any reason. If the author wanted the book to be short he would write it so.

Would you ever listen to anything by Tony Hillerman again?
I've loved every one of the Chee and Leaphorn books and wanted to enjoy the characters in this book, but nothing held together. No compelling characters, the story goes nowhere. I was disappointed.
