Sure. It is a great story if not a bit disjointed at times. My only criticism of the actual structure would be that it jumps around in a way that seems to expect you to know where it is going but overall it was excellent.
Hearing it in his voice is the only way it could be done. He had to read it and you can totally see him performing it. One thing that I really appreciated about it was that it was un-apologetically written with the British reader in mind. So many references and slang that made it more authentic. There was no pandering to other parts of the world and even as an American I appreciated that.
Loved how he threw in bits from his movies and Spaced that referenced things but without noting that he'd referenced them. A nice little extra for those of us that have followed him throughout his career.
Yes, I'd recommend it but the quality of the production was a bit disappointing. I think the story and series has promise but I'm hoping the next book has a bit of a better level of production value included.
I like the characters that he's building and can absolutely see where this would be a good mix of supernatural and detective works but so far it feels a little forced. I'm hoping that it improves and will give it another try.
I really like Marsters as an actor so I was hoping that would translate here. I think he was directed to really sound bored and down trodden given the character so I can't fault him there. The real issue is that with all the movement and breathing and page turning it became super distracting.
It has one. We shall see.
