This is one of the best audiobooks I have ever listened to.
I loved the characters.
Everything!! From the raspy scary voice, the preaching, and the singing. Well done!
Libba Bray - where does this woman's imagination come from? From mad cows to beauty queens to the occult? The occult-based murders in this story almost made me stop the book, but maybe I am more easily scared by most. What kept me going were two things: 1) main character Evie O'Neill is the ultimate 1920's gal (way fun) and an amateur detective (love mysteries) and 2) narrator January LaVoy pulls you in with a wide array of character voices. The humor also had a little to do with reading this because while Libba Bray will probably tell you she is funny, I admit that she is right. Enjoy this creepy, humorous, historically cool story, but beware, while there is a very satisfying ending, this book is the first of a series/collection.... and now I have to wait.
Lots of bad cliches and slow moving through much of it. The ending is an obvious set up for a sequel.
Heroes x X-Men set in 1920's NYC, without the charm or great back stories.
Entertaining, but I would not recommend it to anyone over 13.
The way it was narrated by January LaVoy and how she did a great job with each characters voice
Not sure its kind of like a mashup of a couple of different books
her voice is very easy to get used to
yes but everyone needs sleep ;D
don't think just buy
As with many Libba Bray books,the ending got away from her. That being said, the beginning is always good enough that I am willingly, knowingly, prepared for a confused finish.
This is my first audio book. I am very impressed with January LaVoy's voice skills and characterizations. I am a huge fan of the Roaring 20s era as well as stories about ghostly/occultish things. The characters and plot are very well-rounded and interesting. I highly reccomend The Diviners!
She is very skilled at creating different voices for all of the characters and expressing their emotions beyond the written word.
Yes, but I also don't want it to be over!
