V.I. Warshawski Books in Order: How to read Sara Paretsky Series? - How To Read Me
Buy this book. Loved the story and as always, a great cast of characters. Deeply researched and rich in numerour characters, Blacklist earned the rewards it garnished. I've read five books in this series. None in order.
This one simply has a greater depth as Paretsky explores the abuses of the Patriot Act against McCarthy era hearings. As usual, Chicago is a character study itself. I love the V. Keeping the characters straight was a bit daunting and I had to go over them a few times, but once I did , the novel flowed seamlessly.
As always, Sara Paretsky delivered a novel full of twists and turns and gave me insight into worlds that I seldom encounter in real life.

Is there anything you would change about this book? Economize the story. Felt like ten pounds of potatoes in a five-pound bag. No wonder was V. The material from which it was drawn held some interest, but the shuffling of characters resembled more of a game of three-card-monte than a well plotted journey. While I understand the device of the teen Egyptian refugee's dilemma, I wanted to slap Benjy's characterization bow-legged.
What an annoying little twerp. Hers was a Herculean task to help match the characters voice and personality and emotions with the need to shepherd the reader through the dramatis personae.
I think she was able to the task as challenging as it was. Did Blacklist inspire you to do anything? I stuck with it as I've read a good many of Paretsky's works including listening to other audiobooks and while there were many points I say "this is a hot mess". I was looking for redemption by the book's end.

Not terribly satisfying, but did appreciate Sara's earnest effort and cloaked "then and now" comparisons with the HUAC cum Patriot Act's darker underpinnings. She made her points. Any additional comments? I hope V.
Couldn't even finish it. Don't waste your money. Waste of my time. Here's an audiobook that really needs to be abridged to separate the story from hours of superfluous blather about the "McCarthy Era.
