really liked it

The Whiskey Robber certainly was an interesting character and I can't help but think, had he been focused differently, what he could have accomplished. I 'read' the audio book which is narrated by the author and as usual this is not the best idea, yet there are enough other voices which adds appeal. Based on a true story about a Hungarian (actually displaced Romanian) robber who becomes a Folk Hero. A truly fascinating man and his tale is entertaining.
