    Shy, but scrupulous, he is happy working as a coroner in the Cologne morgue - until one of his usually taciturn “clients” starts talking to him. It seems the ghost of a recently deceased (and surprisingly chatty) small-time car thief named Pascha is lingering near his lifeless body in drawer number four of Martin’s morgue. He remains for one reason: his accidental death was actually murder. Pascha isn’t too keen on the good doctor, considering the tidy manner in which his body was dissected upon the autopsy table.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    I didn't find any interesting plot progression or character growth in this story. The two main characters are awkward and while that would be alright if it was intended, I find that their actions make me cringe. Not something I'd suggest.


    What was most disappointing about Jutta Profijt’s story?

    The characters were weak/no plot progression.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    No dramatic representation of the work, seems flat.


    What character would you cut from Morgue Drawer Four?

    All of them....


    Any additional comments?

    Not really worth it.

  • Zombie Fallout: Zombie Fallout, Book 1

    Story

    This is the story of Michael Talbot, his family, and his friends: a band of ordinary people trying to get by in extraordinary times. When disaster strikes, Mike, a self-proclaimed survivalist, does his best to ensure the safety and security of those he cares for. Book one of the Zombie Fallout Trilogy follows our lead character at his self-deprecating, sarcastic best. What he encounters along the way leads him down a long dark road, always skirting the edge of insanity.

    Story
    Where does Zombie Fallout rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    High. As in, just below the Dresden Files read by James Marsden, and the Iron Druid Chronicles.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Mike. By far. As the main character, he is a strong character; seemingly always knowing what to do, but having weak points in his shell for his family.


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

    Runnette is amazing with his accents and voices, and his ability to just whip out the quick witted jokes that would have been less enjoyable in print, without the snap of anger or wry humour.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I don't usually laugh or grin at something unless in a group, I just don't experience things outwardly much. But I've found myself giggling into my lunch or grinning at inopportune times at work while listening to this. And, turning a bit green as my cast iron stomach turns from the detailed explanations.


    Any additional comments?

    Do eeeeeeeet.

    Jane Yellowrock is the last of her kind-a skinwalker of Cherokee descent who can turn into any creature she desires and hunts vampires for a living. But now she's been hired by Katherine Fontaneau, one of the oldest vampires in New Orleans and the madam of Katie's Ladies, to hunt a powerful rogue vampire who's killing other vamps.

    Story
    Would you listen to Skinwalker again? Why?

    I would definitely listen to this again; the story line is intense and thrilling, and very hard to put down. Until you reach the end, there is always something you could pick up before the main character has, which gives a bit of an adrenaline rush, and maybe a bit of dread.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Skinwalker?

    Any moment where Jane kicks something in the teeth. Beast's dialogue is very interesting, and is probably my favourite portion, simply because of the alternate view of the story.


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

    Her ability to add anger or a quaver to the voices, expressing their emotions. She includes the pronounciation of words I would have otherwise butchered, and accents that make everything more believable.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Hunter within.
