I have waited for a sinister spooky story set in the era when mystery, ghosts, government cover-up, and seers sparked society's entertainment. I couldn't stop listening. I wanted to know the rest. So excited there's a second book and anxiously waiting. Libba Bray has never failed and this is another notch for her better of wonderfulness. (yea wonderfulness!)
It's Jim Dale narrating!!! Enough said!
Magic, love, stem-punk feel with machines, human pawns, and illusions.
Really great. Had to watch the movie and wasn't too disappointed. What a great way to present zombie love with out the "dawn of the dead" gore.
I would love to know if this is an actual thing. Do grave robbers work in a tight secret group? Searching the obituaries for any sign of a "good dig"? Treasures and money with danger and sadness. The characters stories felt believable in a "6 Feet Under" kind of way. I felt bad for the main character's bullying because he didn't deserve it but I also see how it made him pro-active. Towards the end my heart was thumping so loud with the suspense, horror, and excitement of the villain and hero battle. I got to meet the author a few years back when this book was released and I wish I had read now when I met him because I would like to know more about the story.
I read it because everyone in the world had read it and it takes place in my hometown almost near my house. And I don't regret it! wonderful from start to finish. I was inspired to read about other darkly historic books on Chicago during this time period. I love it when I read a good historical fiction novel then delves me even further into history. I say give it a try if you haven't because I promise you..... you won't be disappointed either.
Filled with dark suspense and "The Walking Dead" feeling. You don't know who will survive in the end, surprises at every corner, and real mind-f*cking. You don't know who to trust. Everyone is looking for help but these teens are left to save them selves or die. Fantastic and I'm excited to see what's next for this author. I felt pulled in from the very beginning.
I know this is Bridget all grown-up but it was missing all the humor and wonderful goofiness I enjoyed when I read the 2 prior books. I my heart broke at so many times throughout this book and felt even though Fielding "wrapped" things up, I felt sad. And I miss Mark Darcy.
What a refreshing and wonderful take on "love" in our time. Two broken souls find love in all the strange ways. I really enjoyed the narrator's interpretation on the character, esp. Pat. Definitely will listen to it again.
The story was interesting but the male protagonist was lacking. I felt underwhelmed and wished I could skip his tantrums. The "Sisters" were MUCH more interesting and their dialogue was dark, spooky, and edgy. I'm still going to read her next novel because she has a great understanding of the dark and edgy world.
Definitely helped me begin my AUDACIOUS journey!!! I always enjoy when the author is the narrator. It makes the audio experience more personal.
