The plot was just twisted enough to keep me wanting more. How wonderful to listen to Mycroft and his machinations for the "government".
I would be more likely to recommend the e-book than the audible book to a friend as the narrator sounds so young.
I really like the vocabulary used by the demons - identifying the type of demons and pests. Nice use of harsh consonants!
The narrator made everyone in the story sound like they were still in high school. That made it difficult for me to discard my disbelief.
What an unexpected story! Totally unique and entertaining
The closest comparison would be to Tilt A Whirl. Rookie cop working with a confident, quiet veteran of the "force".
Not only did I want to listen to this book in one sitting, I had to go back and get the next two books in the series right away. I spent the three day weekend with Ben Aaronovitch and Kobna Holdbrook-Smith and enjoyed every minute of it!
The narrator really conveys the sense of joy and intense interest of a little boy growing up with baseball. Listening to the stats as he performed them made them interesting!
I loved the scene where Mickey Mantle sits down next to him and just talks to him like a person.
Twists and turns
Very exciting with multiple plot twists. She keeps you wondering just who the villain is and then, just when you know, she throws in another twist.
Joyce sounded like the Anna Pigeon I always imagined and her character voices are really on the spot. I was never lost wondering who was talking.
When Buddy appeared on the scene, I felt the joy.
