great facts but it feels like the phone book is being read to you. more like a catalogue of facts. The narrator cannot help the way it has been written and does the best he can with what he has got.

absolutely brilliant. I loved every minute of it and wished it were longer. Quinto's voice is like honey. He reads with feeling and emotion. His characters are seperate and strong and each is believable. the basis to the story wasn't hard to understand at all and the storyline itself was enthralling. give me more by the author and more by the narrator!! can't wait!

great story with twists.

struggled to finish but felt obligated. story quite good but stopping and starting makes it a little hard to follow. narration - not so good. no real passion or emphasis.

great story

What disappointed you about Black Man?

the sex in this book is written for just cheap thrills. I'm far from a prude but it was just course, cheap thrills writing. Just plain nasty.

Would you ever listen to anything by Richard Morgan again?

No. This is the second book I have tried and both were the same. The story line looked good but the writing is very poor. Apart from the sex its written like a cheap 40's detective story.

Would you be willing to try another one of Simon Vance’s performances?

yes. I am sure that the performer would be good with something else. Unfortunately, he had bad writing to perform and nothing could salvage that.

What character would you cut from Black Man?

I can't say. I didn't get anywhere near finishing the book.

Any additional comments?

I had looked forward to an unusual, interesting story. The write-up is far from what you get.
