Would you listen to Ron Fortier's Brother Bones: Six Days of the Dragon again? Why?
Yes, there are twists and turns that fill the story. A lot of "active" characters. Good and bad.
Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?
This is a tale of revenge, payback. Those always get my attention and keep it, so YES, it is"edge of your seat" listening in that regard.
What about J. Scott Bennett’s performance did you like?
Diverse choices for character voices. Very well suited to this reading. There are a lot of characters.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
It made me fret for some characters' predicaments and cheer for the revenge that was exacted!
Any additional comments?
Thank you for the opportunity to listen.

Brother bones, undead avenger, returns in his second book. Leary really lays it out in this book. Book one was the set-up, this book is the knock-out punch that follows. I want to start by giving some praise to J. Scott Bennett. The man is a vocal beast, and his talant for voices, inflections, emotionally charged dialouge, and mood setting is incredible. He really brings this novel to life.
Here we get to visit Cape Noire for about a weeks time, with a showdown that is frought with blood, death, and revenge. Oh, someone might have mentioned something bout a dragon.?! Anyway, the book is frought with twists and turns, and you will not want to stop reading once you start. This is pure pulp, not the stuff in your orange juice, either. And the noir overtones just drape the tale in soothing shadows. One nice thing is that the characters are not caricatures or cardboard cutouts, but fully formed, believable actors in this tale.
If you like Pulp, noir, the occult, undead, revenge tales, or just great action scenes then this book is for you. Go get it now, and enjoy life for a few hours.

What made the experience of listening to Ron Fortier's Brother Bones: Six Days of the Dragon the most enjoyable?
With more horrible inhabitants than Gotham City, Cape Noire must be the capital of crazy characters, dastardly deaths and outrageous ideas. And all this even before - the Dragon is coming! It is fast paced and funny with twists and turns enough for a maze.
What does J. Scott Bennett bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?
I had.not previously read anything by Roman Leary nor heard a book read by J.Scott Bennett whose interpretation performance brought the whole world to life, giving just enough sinister undertone to his reading to embue a tension without distracting from the comedy. I will be looking out for more works from both author and narrator in the future.

I received a complementary copy of Ron Fortiers Brother Bones, Six Days of the Dragon from the narrator via Audiobook Boom in return for an honest review. Thank you so much. Without it I might have missed the pleasure of this little gem. I can wholeheartedly recommend it to anyone who loves the comic book idiom or simply enjoys great non stop action, murder and mahem, colourful characters and lots of laughter. Absolutely brilliant.
