When It Rains It Pours
What did you love best about Rain Dogs?
I really dug the Nebraska atmosphere. Where Minnesota was practically a character in the movie 'Fargo,' the same holds true for Nebraska in 'Rain Dogs.'
What did you like best about this story?
I enjoyed the idea of all this scandal, gossip, and dirty dealings all going on with the backdrop of a bucolic little tourist trap, all highlighted and amplified through the shenanigans of the characters, both bad and worse.
What do you think the narrator could have done better?
Honestly, more should have been done to better convey the emotion of the characters. Through much of the audiobook, the narration felt very dry and uninspired. Rather than listening to a richly textured portrait of these characters, I felt like I was listening to one of those film reels from science class in high school.
If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
Death won't drive you to drink, but it'll teach you how.
Any additional comments?
It's a good story overall, but would have been better served with better narration.
