Maybe a good book but you will never know listening to the audio version
on October 10, 2016
I wish Amazon would separate the reviews for the audio and written versions of books. This review is not intended to apply to the book itself as listening to the horrible audio rendering I have no idea what it would be like to read it. The mostly mocking tone of the reader makes the story impossible to take seriously. The foreign accents he employs are exaggerated racial stereotypes. By comparison his Latin American accents make the "we don't need no stinkin' badges" line from Treasure of the Sierra Madre sound like Kenneth Branagh reading Shakespeare. I'm used to hearing Buck Schimer read the Bob Lee Swagger novels and to me he is Swagger. This reading is just not appropriate for the material. Because I have a long commute and listening to an interesting book makes the time seem to pass more quickly I've listened on and off up to Chapter 10, but it's a struggle and I find myself switching over frequently to Sirius radio and wondering if I should just give up on the book and start another one.
