Overal Rating: five-stars

I was provided a copy of this book in audio format en exchange for an honest review.

This is the story of Uncle Charlie vs. Satchel, a great monster, the biggest of muskies, the terror of fishermen. Charlie had been taking about Satchel for years, its fame was wide known, but nobody was able to catch it. One day Bill goes fishing with old Uncle Charlie and they will meet Satchel, which will terrorize them both.

I greatly enjoyed this short story. The details are quite vivid and it is like listening to your one of your grandfather’s old tales. This is my second book by Bill Stokes and I admire his ability to quickly trap you into his stories, which works well for the length of his tales. There is just one drawback, and it is that he leaves me wanting for more.

Johnny Mack did a good job narrating this book and giving the right inflections and emotions to the characters and narration.

I would recommend this book to anyone who would like to enjoy a good short story, just under sixteen minutes.
