This Poor Guy!

This book is John Isaac Jones first full length endeavor, as I understand it. This is a book that is not necessarily a comedy of errors, but everything that could go wrong to this goodhearted cowboy DOES. JL needs to find his way to another ranch after being ousted by technology. Along the way, his moral compass steers him into situations after situation in which he must fix something to move on. One of the first situations introduces him to Karina – who becomes his sidekick.

Richard L Walton has a rich and deep voice that is perfect for our hero – JL.

This listener found the book enjoyable although I have found that John Isaac Jones' short stories a bit more.

For conservative people into romance

J.L. Crocket decides to emigrate to Argentina when the ranch where he worked substitutes human cowboys for technology and engineers. In his trip he meets Karina, an independent woman that will change his life.

I don’t usually read romances, but I took the plunge with this one just to read something different. I found the story entertaining and it engaged me until the end.

First of all I want to mention that the first part of the book left me a bit confused. Jones switches several times between first and third person, something unusual and that can lead to confusion. I would have avoided this, and kept first or third person consistent throughout the book. There were some sentences that made me cringe, like ‘In the distance they could see a train disappearing in the distance’. I think the book would have benefited from an editor.

J.L. is a cowboy who believes in karma, something poetic and beautiful, that I won’t discuss here. That’s fine. What bothered me and made me roll my eyes several times is how good and perfect J.L. was almost at all times (I found his littering habit simply rude and disgusting). His attitude and the fact that in a restaurant full of people, he is the only one who knows about the Heimlich maneuver is just ludicrous.

The romance and conversations seemed forced to me, but that could be because I am not really into romance books, and I am used to a different kind of content.

I was a bit annoyed a affirmations about gender differences and how girls and boys need to be educated differently, mentioning that a girl needs to be educated to be a lady. Due to this kind of things, sometimes I forgot I was reading a book set in our time, and thought it was a novel set in the 50’s.

The narration was okay, but Richard L. Walton is not very good with voices. All the characters sounded the same, male and female. I am curious about why this narrator was selected, since he sounds like an old man, and J.L. is in his thirties for the most part of the book. I don’t think this was a good match. About the audio production, there is some background noise around 3:05:04 that I found distracting.

I would recommend this book to conservative people that are into romance.

I received a copy of this book in audio format from the author in exchange for an honest review.
