This is horror comedy where both elements are done well. It refuses to be cliche, and is rarely predictable.
Molly the dog, because she's the only one who is truly an innocent.
There's a part where a monster is formed out of a bunch of live turkeys. Without giving details, it is disgustingly disturbing one moment, then absurdly funny the next. Like much of the rest of this book.
Yes, but I don't want to give it away.
The reading is very good on this production, and there are just occasional touches of audio production that enhance at just the right moments without ever feeling too intrusive. The way the name of the town ("[UNDISCLOSED]") is "clumsily" overdubbed in a different sounding voice was somehow an effect that never ceased to be funny.
It's hard to write a review of this book that doesn't give away some of the wonderful secrets that make it such an enjoyable listen. I'd say--if you like steampunk, you will like this, even though it's not a steampunk book. If you like mysteries that go to unexpected places. If you like stories with a good sense of humor.
Plus, the narration is great, with super strong voice acting for characters of both sexes. I hope that Clines and Porter will team up on many books to come.
