The Life We BuryThe Life We Bury by Allen Eskens

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Listened February 3 to 6, 2017

I listened to the audio version of The Life We Bury after a tip from a Goodreads friend who also listened to it while doing chores. While listening to this I was mostly shoveling snow which made that task a little bit more tolerable. This book was an excellent choice for listening to as the pacing of the narrative kept my attention throughout and my mind didn’t wander.

The Life We Bury is a rewarding tale of two characters, Joe and Carl that are bonded together by buried secrets and the burdens they carry. Joe who takes on responsibilities way beyond his years unravels the tale of Carl’s conviction and his past secrets.

The tale is told through Joe’s eyes and ears and we learn part of the tale as Carl is telling his story to Joe. This made the audio version very enjoyable for me. It was like hearing the story for myself first hand.

I highly recommend the audio version of The Life We Bury for those times you want to get lost in the tasks and chores that need to be done.
