Set in a small Canadian village. I laughed all the way through. A drunken Poet Laureate with a foul mouth, a cafe owned by a gay couple, a bookstore owned by an obese black psychologist, 2 artists who remind me of the Odd Couple and a gentle Chief Inspector with a dry wit. Not politically correct but definately funny and without malice.
Lorilie King was an improvement over the previous narrator who always sounded like she was bored to tears but this is the last Cornwell novel I'll buy. The way Cornwell ended the book it's like she just ran out of time so rolled it up without solving anything. Very disappointing.
This book isn't like anything I've read before.
I couldn't put it down. I looked like I had Hayden's while I listened to the book, I was so engrossed in the book I didn't move for long periods of time.
This is the best Scalzi so far and I loved Redshirts and Agent to the Stars. The idea of Hayden syndrome is so believable in this day of global viruses. I was fascinated with the description of how the Hayden's experienced the world. The plot was good but for me it was just a vehicle to carry the story of Hayden syndrome and how it was addressed.
yes, this book is full of action
I want to be Anna Pigeon when I grow up.
I bought the book because the reader reviews were good, but the narration makes the story unbearable. She narrates the way most of us read aloud.
Use Barbara Rosenblat or Marguerite Gavin as the narrator.
Yes. It's funny, fast paced and a slightly different premise than any other paranormal fiction I've read.
The FBI hostage negotiation call line with phone tree options including a canary yellow SUV with bank robber on board bumper sticker and almost empty tank for faster get away.
Her delivery is perfect for the female character..
Yes. I laughed all the way through.
This is an unexpected treasure. I'm going to look for more books by this author and this narrator.
If the characters were fleshed out and a plot was added.
no I like fantasy
all of them
Hard core Sci Fi readers.
The plot was hard to follow.
He didn't really detract.
Not for everyone even if it is "classic"
Yes, I like Kinsey.
William or Ed
When Ed starts talking to Henry. Nicely done.
If you like the series this one won't disappoint.
yes. It's different. Some humor some mystery some query characters.
The witch and the dominatrix
The mouse patrol
The heroine. She accepts herself as she is.
Give it a try if you're not a10.
Engaging, unique funny
Brin. His character was so well developed and so unique. Not your usual hero.
He does an excellent job with the different voices and his dialog delivery is excellent.
All of it.
This entire series is addictive. I can't wait for the next book.
