I haven't read it yet but the audio was pretty good, my only problem being that I might need to read it to develop a better picture of what was happening as I got a little lost in some places, and I'm not sure if it was just the narrator's soothing voice making me space out.
Definitely not a ghost story as some people seem to believe, it is for sure a spooky detective mystery, from the point of view of an asthmatic civilian.
His voice cracks me up because of the way he voices some side characters. They sound so snooty I can't help laughing no matter what they are saying. I want to give him 4.5 stars just because I don't really like the way he tries to make his voice deep for Nick; it's just not working for me.
Cute book, I'll probably get to reading it one of these days but probably won't completely listen to the audiobook again unless super bored.
As far as skill, it was very skillfully written but I don't have the urge to listen to it a second time.
When Nick sees the ambulance.
Perry. He's got a lot of heart.
The pace of the book was great, the story well done. The characters were real, very real in fact. The whole 'boy' with 'man' thing was starting to get creepy by the point when one is referred to as smelling of 'boy sweat', but otherwise, it was a good fun listen. The voice actor made the characters come to life and his wide range really did justice to the story. It has a lot of twists and turns that get wrapped up rather nicely. I'm glad I gave this one a shot after Darkling Thrush because it's a better book. I recommend it.
p.s. I believe this is a non American author, we don't call 'our room' 'our rooms', we don't say 'what was he doing in my rooms', or 'my apartments', 'she went to her rooms', yeah, that was a bit distracting but once you get past that, it was good.
