Compared to other audio books this was good - not great. The pacing felt a bit slow - although the narration suited the pace of the story so I can't blame the reader.
It was well read, and as it progressed the story became more engaging. Towards the end I laughed out loud at a few points. Overall, I'd recommend the book and urge patience as you wait for the story to kick into gear. The narrator did a great job.
I enjoyed this - its a light supernatural caper type story that moves at a good pace and grips your interest. The narration grew on me. At first the cockney accent given the character Bones grated, but by the end of the book I had come to appreciate the narrator's skill in differentiating characters and her consistency.
How can you have a favourite character in a book chock full of such colourful personalities?
Stacey and Stephen were both hilarious, and Ronald was also pretty droll.
If you are a fan of CBC's Wiretap, you will adjust quickly to the narrator's style, otherwise - give it a few chapters and he will grow on you! Funny book, great pacing and wonderful narrators. You are in for a great listen with this story.
