    Zinzi December has a Sloth on her back, a dirty 419 scam habit, and a talent for finding lost things. But when a little old lady turns up dead and the cops confiscate her last paycheck, she’s forced to take on her least favourite kind of job: missing persons.

    What did you love best about Zoo City?

    I liked the flow,the pace, the energy. You can't wait to know what happens next, but you are excited to learn about the past too.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The twins. I can't say why, it might give away spoilers.


    What does Justine Eyre bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The accents and the cultural differences that I would have missed had I read it instead. On some occasions I wasn't sure what she was talking about. But I'm from central white bread America, so that's probably a big part of it.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Oh yes. I have an hour long commute and even then I would sit and let the page or chapter wind down before getting out of the car.


    Any additional comments?

    The author finishes the story and there is a suggestion of a follow up, please let there be!!!!

    There are some odd things about Nate’s new apartment. Of course, he has other things on his mind. He hates his job. He has no money in the bank. No girlfriend. No plans for the future. So while his new home isn’t perfect, it’s livable. The rent is low, the property managers are friendly, and the odd little mysteries don’t nag at him too much. At least, not until he meets Mandy, his neighbor across the hall, and notices something unusual about her apartment. And Xela’s apartment. And Tim’s. And Veek’s.

    What did you love best about 14?

    "14" started and never stopped. It's pace and story kept me sitting in my car listening well after my long commute was finished.
