Weak for Burke
I have read Burke and loved his great coloring, his pithy rendering of characters. Having never been on a bayou, I think I would know it if I was by his descriptions, even the smell of the place.
Now comes the real challenge> getting someone to read the work, someone who will not run the whole thing into a ditch. But, here comes Will Patton and not only are Burke's words NOT sinking beneath the lily pads, but they actually soar to new heights. So infused is Will's voice in my mind now, I cannot read Burke any longer without hearing it in Will's voice and inflection.
A rare conjunction of two wonderful talents! Crush some more mint into that Mint Julep and enjoy the trip!

Where is the unabridged version?
What disappointed you about Heaven's Prisoners?
Shame on you, Audible. This book is not abridged; it's butchered. A 3-hour long version, compared to the unabridged length of over 11 hours. Will Patton and James Lee Burke are a good team -- my rating does not reflect the writing or the performance. The unabridged version was issued by Recorded Books. Go find it, Audible!
