  • Callahan's Key

    Nobody blends good science with bad puns as brilliantly as Spider Robinson. Now he's back with the latest chapter of the Callahan saga: an improbable tale of impending doom, a road trip, space, drugs, and rock 'n' roll.

    Kathryn says: "Purchase Callahan's Chronicles First!"
    "Another journey to Callahan's Place"
    Overall

    A great book and the narrator is wonderful, but this book is one of many by Robinson about Callahan. It might be hard to jump into if you haven't read _Time Travelers Strictly Cash_ and _Callahan's Secret_. (There are more Callahan books, but those two are most important to understanding _Callahan's Key_.)

    (24706)

    It is Nick and Amy Dunne's fifth wedding anniversary. Presents are being wrapped and reservations are being made when Nick's clever and beautiful wife disappears from their rented McMansion on the Mississippi River. Husband-of-the-Year Nick isn't doing himself any favors with cringe-worthy daydreams. Under mounting pressure from the police and the media - as well as Amy's fiercely doting parents - the town golden boy parades an endless series of lies, deceits, and inappropriate behavior. Nick is oddly evasive, and he's definitely bitter - but is he really a killer?

    Teddy says: "Demented, twisted, sick and I loved it!"
    "Almost 40 Hours Of Entertainment"

    Story

    As soon as I finished listening to this book, I immediately restarted it from the beginning. The story is shocking, but so well constructed that once you know the end, you realize it was inevitable. Through my first listen, I did not want to stop. The second time through was no less engaging.

    Having two narrators tell the story - from the point of view of the husband and also his missing wife - was essential. Both readers were talented. At first I thought Kirby Heynorne's delivery was to performative, but as the story progresses it becomes clear that is part of the character he is building. Julia Whelan was amazing. She shines with the material. In the future, I can imagine her presence as the narrator of a novel being decisive in my purchase.
