    Where does Speaks the Nightbird rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    The book and the narration held me spellbound to the end. I listen in my car and one day forgot where I was--totally entranced.


    What other book might you compare Speaks the Nightbird to and why?

    The author writes with a combination of the talents of Dickens, Arthur Conan Doyle, Melville, Washington Irving and Stephen King. You relate to their characters, descriptives, and studies in human nature.


    What about Edoardo Ballerini’s performance did you like?

    He could be so many characters. You thought more than one person was performing. He drew you in and made you be a part of the book. Very seductive.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Be seduced by curiosity!


    Any additional comments?

    I right away downloaded "Queen of Bedlam"--finished it--and am now reading "Mr. Slaughter". I hope McCammon keeps the series going. I'm in love with Matthew Corbett.
