I was partway through disc one when I realized that I had read this book already. But since I was driving I figured I'd keep listening. The reader does a great Boston accent - authentic, not over the top. And the book is a good mystery to keep your mind occupied while driving. Even though I had read it, I still enjoyed listening to it. It's not as gripping as Mystic River, but it's good.
I love Dennis Lehane books, and wanted an unabridged copy. I think that is why I couldn't finish, it felt like I was missing too much. Also, the reader wasn't one that was easy for me to listen to. I hope Dennis Lehane books will become available in unabridged. Thank you
I really liked this story alot! Kept me interested and on the edge of my seat (well, my car seat!). Loved the characters and the narration was wonderful. Highly recommend, just wish it was the unabridge version instead.
Being from Massachusetts and having that accent I felt at home listening to the story! I wish this was an unabridged version as I would have like to hear the entire story but even so I thought this was an excellent story and after hearing it I added more of Dennis Lehane's books to read! Excellent plot and I loved the charactors in the story.
The writeup on this book does a better job of telling the story than this 3-disc set does. This is the first abridged recording I've heard that really drops the ball when telling the story. My wife read the book and though I would enjoy the audio book too. This abridgement leaves so many holes in the story that I spent a lot of time wondering how much I was missing. The narrator has such a heavy Boston accent that it took almost the first full disc to get my ears adjusted to the dialect. If you can find an unabridged version of this story get that one, or read the book instead. Avoid this version.
