Back to old wonderful greatness

I wasn't wild about Glass Rainbow - the last James Lee Burke (especially the - gulp! - ending), but in Creole Belle, he's found the sweet spot again. Beautiful language and imagery, all told in Will Patton's honeyed, southern voice. Excellent!

Very enjoyable listen

Where does Creole Belle rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This is the second James Lee Burke I have read and was not disappointed. I loved the characters and the story keeps you hooked. This would be in my to 20 audio books.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Clete is my favourite character. He has had a hard life but still fills it with action and has such a big heart.

Another winnder from Burke & Patton

Many people, even fans, would suggest that Burke too often rips off himself. This is evident here, but he is such a masterful writer of character and dialogue that, despite the recurring themes, I didn't want to stop listenting; particularly in the second half.

Patton's narration, as always, makes it compulsive listening. If you've never listened to/read Burke, maybe choose something else (his previous one, Feast Day of Fools, although a sequel, is an amazing book - it can be read stand-alone with no problems).

This volume adds strongly to Burke's canon, without introducing something especially new. Absolutely a must for fans at least.
