All potential lost to a bad reader

The plot might have held promise. Certainly with Hiaasen as one of the authors, I had hopes. But the reader ruined it. I could not get past chapter 3. Same harsh tone no matter what the scene, didn't seem to be taking in what he was reading so emphasis often misplaced. What a pity

I Love Carl Hiaasen, but man this was the hard

What disappointed you about Powder Burn?

I cant rate this book because I was to bored to get past the first 3 hours. If you love Carl Hiaasen stay away from this book. Its starts slow and I think that's the way it will continue. This book was a slow starter like the Lords of Discipline

Would you ever listen to anything by Carl Hiaasen and Bill Montalbano again?

Not both this book was too boring to complete. I have listened to all of Carl Hiassen books longer than 8 hours and I loved them all, this one was just not for me.

Would you be willing to try another one of Robert Ramirez’s performances?

I didn't finish the book so I don't feel like I should rate his performance

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Powder Burn?

I was to bored to finish the first half let alone the complete boo.

Any additional comments?

Can I have a refund?

Not Much Hiassen Here

Would you try another book from Carl Hiaasen and Bill Montalbano and/or Robert Ramirez?

After reading other books by Hiaasen, I am convinced that he simply put the finishing touches and added a few funny parts to this tome after Montalbano had finished.

What could Carl Hiaasen and Bill Montalbano have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

I would have had Montalbano tell Hiaasen the structure of the story, and then have Carl alone write the book in his style.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Robert Ramirez?

The idea of having a young Latino read the book was a good one, but It seems that you need someone with a greater range of tone in his voice. It needs to be read by someone older, and with a more gruff voice.

What character would you cut from Powder Burn?

No Idea.
