Reviews for Snapper

AudioFile Reviews 2013 August
Brian Kimberling's debut novel is a quirky love song to the state of Indiana, with some interesting bird facts thrown in. Even as he shines a light on the state's most cliched characteristics, his affection for the Hoosier State makes Indiana the star of the book. MacLeod Andrews is the voice of Nathan Lochmueller as he reminisces about his adventures as a professional bird tracker and observer of the idiosyncrasies of his home state and its people. Andrews handles the cast of unique characters with humor and an obvious appreciation for their eccentricities. Those who are looking for a complex, character-driven story will be disappointed, but those who enjoy observations of flawed people delivered with humor and affection will find this their cup of tea.
