    What made the experience of listening to American Gods: The Tenth Anniversary Edition (A Full Cast Production) the most enjoyable?

    The full cast performance was a work of art. It made determining who was speaking easy, the story more compelling and enjoyable. Having Neil do part of the narrating was a great decision, his voice was just the right understated English accent that it needed to bring his delight in the material to light.


    What does the narrators bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I love to read, but I also love movies. The way it was presented made it a grand mashup of two media.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The climax about made me cry.

    When Nick Hall wakes up in a dumpster - bloodied, without a memory, and hearing voices in his head - he knows things are bad. But they're about to get far worse. Because he's being hunted by a team of relentless assassins. Soon Hall discovers that advanced electronics have been implanted in his brain, and he now has two astonishing abilities. He can surf the web using thoughts alone. And he can read minds. But who inserted the implants? And why? And why is someone so desperate to kill him?

    What would have made Mind's Eye better?

    A better writer. Every turn of phrase, every interpersonal reaction, every plot line... I won't say plot twist, there weren't any... was predictable and painful.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Douglas E. Richards again?

    No


    Have you listened to any of Adam Verner’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No, but he was fine. It was obvious that he was doing his best with poor material. He could use some work on his female voices, but he has energy.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Mind's Eye?

    I would have kicked it back to the author and told him to rewrite it as a YA novel.


    Any additional comments?

    This was a new book and the blurb sounded interesting, and the cover said New York Times bestseller. FALSE ADVERTISING.

    They were just kids when they stumbled upon the horror of their hometown. Now, as adults, none of them can withstand the force that has drawn them all back to Derry, Maine, to face the nightmare without end, and the evil without a name.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Anytime.


    What about Steven Weber’s performance did you like?

    He was extraordinary. As an actor, a reader, a performer... Listen, I liked this story since it's release many years ago, and was afraid that the narrating wouldn't be up to the level of the voices in my head. Steve exceeded every hope.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Cry, yes. Cringe (when I should have), yes. Want more Steve in good books, yes.
