Probably in the top third, based upon enjoyability.
At first I was skeptical, there's an awful lot of this is broke and I'm fixing it like this, but as the story develops, you learn more about the characters and Mr Fixit becomes a likeable, interesting character. It was fun and really different than most stories.
He seemed a little crass at first, but then after a while, you realize he's spot on. And his Indian accented characters were amazing, I kept thinking there had to be two different narrators.
I listen in my car, and was always coming in the house to tell my husband, "you'll never guess what happened now!"
It's a light comedy for the most part, about a very ingenious man, and well worth a credit.
This is simply the best audiobook I've ever listened to, out of the hundred or so I've heard. Scott Brick is at his peak, the story is sublime, it reminds me of Casablanca, with a wonderful story and fully realized characterizations. Totally perfect. So much in SciFi seems to be written for teenage boys, it's a real thrill to discover an author who writes for adults and isn't afraid to plumb the depths of the human psyche for realistic emotional situations and moral dilemmas. Grab this one, it's truly 10 out of 10.
Phil Rickman's Merrily Watkins series are wonderful
stories, and this one is no exception. Slow to start,
but has lots of character development and just enough
mystery, ethical dilemmas and supernatural undertones to be interesting yet completely believable. Emma Powell does a brilliant job at voice characterizations, far better than the other
narrator of the series available here on Audible. I was so impressed after hearing this and Midwinter of the Spirit, I bought the whole series. I hope Audible will have more of this series available, especially if read by Emma Powell.
