A very interesting read for the lover of science fiction and mysteries. Good characters and tie ins you just gotta read to find out. I recommend.
This one really took me by surprise. Audible recommended it and for that I am grateful. I am no longer in touch with pop culture, at least not like I was as a child, but this story taps into so much of what my childhood was about. The best way I can describe it is it's like a Scooby Doo adventure for adults, with a solid well paced story that I found myself wanting to be a part of. This is one that I look forward to revisiting in few years. Also, Ray Porter knocks it out of the park!
Story is very well written. Accurate descriptions, good characters (many of them) and the right suspense to keep you engaged. I didn't quite like the plot and outcome of the story. It feels like some parts of it weren't explored (and explained) as they should have been.
Again story is interesting but not amazing: no "oh F." moments or great twists.
The narrator is amazing. Compelling acting, very good in distinguish each different characters' voices and accents.
I enjoyed listening to this abook but I can't wait to find a real page turner...
Ray Porter is a big reason I was drawn to this book in the first place (because of Joe Ledger). He did NOT disappoint! One of the best, possibly THE best voice actors/narrators in the business. He always brings the characters to life and gives them more depth than my own imagination could ever achieve. Thanks Ray.
This author was unknown to me, but I plan on looking for more from him now. Fantastically original story with insightful twists, yet skillfully executed so that a pretty outrageous premise was palatable and believable without seeming totally whacked-out.
Listens to short-stories in the horror, fantasy and science fiction genres. Loves Terry Pratchett and wants to go to Discworld some day.
This story is delightful. It is everything a story needs: interesting plot; unexpected twists; engaging characters and snappy, fresh dialogue that brings the characters into sharp relief. The interweaving of past historical figures is icing on the cake.
I had low to no expectations on this audio book. I'm happy to say it exceeded my expectations significantly. Two things I Really appreciate: 1. Not in first person; 2. No cliffhangers. It's a nice, tidy, sci-fi thriller worth the download.
