    Story
    (129)

    In this genre-twisting novel, infamous necromancer Johannes Cabal, after beating the Devil and being reunited with his soul, leads us on another raucous journey in a little-known corner of the world. This time he’s on the run from the local government.

    Ryan says: "Not as good as the first Johannes Cabal novel"
    "Howard's Cabal Needs a More Enthusiastic Reader"

    Story
    Would you consider the audio edition of Johannes Cabal the Detective to be better than the print version?

    I have not read the print version.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The story is clever and fun. Howard's sarcasm and pointed quips are brilliant.


    What aspect of Robin Sachs’s performance would you have changed?

    I loved Johannes Cabal: Necromancer so much better, but only because Christopher Cazenove is a much more enthusiastic reader, who knows exactly how to get Howard's idiom across. Robin Sachs seems to be much less interested in the story, and the bits of sarcastic undertones are not expressed the way, I believe, Howard means them to be.

    Mr. Sachs is a wonderful reader, but not for this book. I hope that Howard's third book, "Fear Institute," brings back Christopher Cazenove.


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

    I found myself laughing aloud as I did with the first book -- something I rarely do.


    Any additional comments?

    I was thoroughly delighted with these two books, and I am looking forward to reading the third.
