Would you try another book from Mark de Castrique and/or William Dufris?
The story starts with a combat Veteran, healing from wounds, and meets another Veteran. There is this mystery and they come together to solve it.The contemporary Veteran characters held my interested with their interactions with each other. I was good with the story up to that point. Then a lost diary is introduced in to the plot. Now the focus changes and the diary is going to aid in the solving of the mystery. The kid in the diary did not add more interest for me. I found the story of him and his troubles boring to me, and the flashbacks to the diary were irritating. About this stage in the story I lost my interest. Either, to keep reading any further or where the story went from here, and quit reading.
Very frustrating, couldn't get auto book to read... after several tries I gave up...hope it works better for you
I don't think the Narration is the issue, it was pretty good. The pace of the story was slow for me.
If you could sum up Blackman's Coffin in three words, what would they be?
Good Story Line
What was one of the most memorable moments of Blackman's Coffin?
I can't pick out just one. I appreciate good humor in a story, and this definitely has a lot of good lines that made me laugh.
Which character – as performed by William Dufris – was your favorite?
Once again, hard to choose, I liked Sam, both the Robertson sisters, and Nathan but most of the other characters too.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
I laughed a lot!
Any additional comments?
I have listened to this book many times, and would do so again. Excellent use of humor, good story line, and a lot of real historical facts.
The story line is a little far fetched but I truly enjoyed the book. My only complaint was the narration. I almost was unable to listen to the book because of it!
This was a very weak audio book. The story line was well researched, but far fetched. The worst part of the book was the narration. It was so bad that I was sure that the publisher had used a "nobody" to read it. I was shocked to find out that the narrator is considered one of the best. If that is the case, he didn't bring his A game to this project.
