Summary

One of Faulkner's comic masterpieces, The Reivers is a picaresque story that tells of three unlikely car thieves from rural Mississippi. Eleven-year-old Lucas Priest is persuaded by Boon Hogganbeck, one of his family's retainers, to steal his grandfather's car and make a trip to Memphis. The priests' black coachman, Ned McCaslin, stows away, and the three of them are off on a heroic odyssey, for which they are ill-equipped, that ends at Miss Reba's bordello in Memphis. From there, a series of wild misadventures ensues - involving horse smuggling, trainmen, sheriff's deputies, and jail.

I have enjoyed it very, very much

Where does The Reivers rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I had read the book long time ago and I have liked it. So, it was up to the reader this time not to disappoint me. And he did not.

What does John H. Mayer bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Excellent reader. He made in my head all the wonders a good book makes to the reader plus the voices.

Any additional comments?

I hope I will return to this book some day. I have about dozen books in this category.
