I got the hardcopy at the library and browsed thru it. All the art work and visuals are interesting but I loved have the spoken word deliver all the info, including narration of newspaper articles etc. Jake Weber just brings his character and the story to such life.
I can pull this up and listen to it in the dark, start anywhere in the book and immediately be immersed in this absolutely original tale.
He is the perfect narrator for this.
Please don't ruin a great listen... I wouldn't want to see this made into a movie... they always f*@$ it up.
This was not a horror book and was not once scary. The accents done by the narrator are very bad. I'm actually really disappointed after hearing this book. It was interested but was never exciting and left me wanting my time back.
It touched on so many things that interest me: movies, mystery, potential supernatural events, black magic, and potential drug induced delusions.
This is a film waiting to happen. The story is full of twist and turns, dark, magical, and detailed to the extreme. Jake Weber has done a miraculous job as well. Huge fan of everything regarding this title.
Love TrueCrime! Most other non-fic, sports, TrueCrime,family/love stories, scary fiction, TrueCrime, Stevie King, TrueCrime, & TrueCrime!
Yeah, probably, considering Mr. Weber turned in the best narration I've ever heard since starting the Audible "thing."
My fave was probably "Hopper." He did a pretty good job with him. I think he portrayed him just how the author would've described him.
Absolutely! But 20hrs+ is a lot to ask these days when I'm chasing a toddler around my house as well as his 3 older siblings! All under 11...ugh.
I honestly don't know how Ms. Pessl is going to write another novel after this one. I can't see her being able to find ANY more beauty in herself to pull it off! Seriously, her tank must be close to empty after this. What a book! So dark, so edge of your seat, so wonderfully written. Couldn't WAIT to reach the ending to see how this was all gonna string together. It's a journey you go on here man. I wish I could've sat in the dark for the whole listen.
I don't believe so but he's wonderful.
Yes - stop reading this author!
This is half of a good book. It is fascinating in the beginning but then completely jumps the shark and becomes overwrought and silly. I cannot believe the author managed to sell the film rights.
