A Good Listen

I enjoyed this Matthew Scudder story about a woman/angel who helps people who want to die., it was short but a good listen. I completely enjoyed it. LB did a good job narrating his own story

Talked to Death

A quick listen about a woman that helps those in hospice cross to the other side.

block writes far better than he reads

Would you consider the audio edition of The Merciful Angel of Death to be better than the print version?

no, but i'll listen to any scudder book or story, even those read by the master himself, lawrence block....

Who was your favorite character and why?

block's reading makes this almost impossible to answer...see below

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Lawrence Block?

prefer hammer and barrett....
foster and sklar ae secondaries
block's reading is too flat...doesn't differentiate characters clearly

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

no

Very short

The author isn't great at doing voices, but I got used to it. Other than that it was good but surprisingly brief.

"Just let go."

Another languid narration by Lawrence Block of book five in his excellent short story series, the Matt Scherer Mysteries. Scherer isn't a recognised P.I. but an ex-cop who resigned from the force and also left his family and home after accidentally shooting a young girl. He'll sometimes do investigating favours for people, for cash. But when the head of an hospice asked him.to look into the apparently early deaths of some of the patients, Matt takes on the investigation for free.

I love these short stories which are simultaneously slow moving yet solidly packed. And the author performs them perfectly.
My thanks to Audible for making this book free to read in it's Audible + programme.
