    Imagine becoming a best-selling novelist, and almost immediately famous and wealthy, while still in college, and before long seeing your insufferable father reduced to a bag of ashes in a safety-deposit box, while after American Psycho your celebrity drowns in a sea of vilification, booze, and drugs.

    "More Than Creepy"
    Overall

    I couldn't stop listening. The author twists elements of his own life and experience into a bizarre and disturbing phycological horror story. Through most of the book, one is not sure if the "monsters" are real or just in the mind of a very messed up character. In fact, at times I wanted them to be real just to ease the creepiness that comes from empathizing with a character who is so lost.

    I don't know how well this narrator would do with another genre, but for this book, he was perfect!

    I hope Audible can snag a few others by Ellis. I'd love to listen to Less Than Zero and American Psycho.

    People start dropping dead around Charlie, giant ravens perch on his building, and it seems that everywhere he goes, a dark presence whispers to him from under the streets. Strange names start appearing on his nightstand notepad, and before he knows it, those people end up dead, too. Yup, it seems that Charlie Asher has been recruited for a new job, an unpleasant but utterly necessary one: Death.

    "Very Funny Listen"
    Overall

    This is one of the most entertaining books I have downloaded. Never slow, always funny and extremely well narrated. Fischer Stevens is so good I immediately looked for other books he has narrated.

    I've since listened to a few others by the same author and so far, this is the best.
