Gripping, as usual.
The narration was the weakest part of the audiobook. The main character, Gabriel, was voiced slightly hoarse and almost monotonal. It seemed such a bad characterization that getting immersed in the book was very difficult. The characters were switched in some dialogue and the pronunciation of Hebrew names was amazingly bad.
When the dead realized they could go anywhere instead of waiting for Judgement Day.
Heart, humor, social commentary and compelling characters and stories - exactly what I expect from Sir Terry.
Barbara Leigh-Hunt has a grandmotherly voice that really detracts from the story, since it fits only the querulous older spinster characters.
Sure. The main character is engaging, the narrator is very good and the story is a real original.
Billy, of course, but there are so many entertaining characters it's hard to pick. Okay, I'll go with a few - Billy's friend Millicent, Dame Biglum, and Glass-Eyed Pete the pirate. They are all feisty and fun.
Peter Bishop's reading is a dead ringer for Neil Gaiman, which is weird! His voice and accent are eerily like Mr. G's.
