    Judas Coyne is a collector of the macabre. But nothing he possesses is as unlikely or as dreadful as his latest discovery, a thing so terrible-strange, Jude can't help but reach for his wallet. For a thousand dollars, Jude will become the proud owner of a dead man's suit, said to be haunted by a restless spirit. But what UPS delivers to his door in a black heart-shaped box is no imaginary or metaphorical ghost. It's the real thing.

    Overall

    This book immediately immerses you in deep creepiness, and doesn't stop until the denouement. Mr. Hill has a fine, compact writing style, with vivid characterizations and a great sense of what makes things really scary. You'll hear an occasional turn of phrase in here that shows real artistry, too. The narration was perfect, as good as any book I've gotten here; a wonderful job with regional accents. I listen to my Audible books on my morning walks, but I got hooked enough on this one that I'd listen for an hour or two after I got home, too. I also gave my dogs extra treats :)

    Great jobs by Mr. Hill and Mr. Lang!

    In the same engaging style and dry humor that makes the Podictionary podcast popular, Hodgson traces the development of our language using easily recognizable milestones such as Beowulf, William the Conqueror, Chaucer, and Shakespeare, with a minimum of dates and dry facts.

    This was a fun listen for my morning walk. Just an hour and fifteen minutes long, it makes no pretense of being a scholarly work. If you've studied the history of the language in depth, there's not really anything new here. But Hodgson has a good eye for interesting details that make this an entertaining piece.
