    Rob, a professional debunker, is watching yet another performance by a supposed psychic. But as she calls forth the spirit entity known as Isus, another voice suddenly interrupts. And this one is so unexpected and so real, even the hardened skeptic finds he can't help but believe.

    Linda says: "Terrific, but too short"

    What did you like best about this story?

    I really enjoyed the story. As a skeptic who desperately wants to be believe in the spirit world is spoke to all my hopes and fears. Its really well written, fast paced, great character development. Its great way to spend 2 hours.

    What did you love best about Agent to the Stars?

    This is a crazy, fun, wonderfully funny book. Totally unexpected.


    What does Wil Wheaton bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I loved that Wil Wheaton was reading this book. He is a talented actor and brings so much to the characters. I would not have differented between the voices had I read this on my own.

    When a baby escapes a murderer intent on killing the entire family, who would have thought it would find safety and security in the local graveyard? Brought up by the resident ghosts, ghouls and spectres, Bod has an eccentric childhood learning about life from the dead. But for Bod there is also the danger of the murderer still looking for him - after all, he is the last remaining member of the family.

    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I have always loved Neil Gaiman and to listen to him read his own words is just wonderful.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Graveyard Book?

    Its a fantastic book. It blends dark whimsy, historical trivia and humour as only Gaiman can and the result was me sometimes sitting in my car long after I had arrived at my destination to listen to a little bit more of the story.

    Story

    If his rotter of an estranged father hadn't gone and dropped dead at a karaoke night, Fat Charlie Nancy would still be blissfully unaware that his dad was Anansi the spider god. He would also have no idea that he has a brother (called Spider) who is also a god. And now this brother is trying to take over his life, and is generally doing a much better job of being him.

    What did you love best about Anansi Boys?

    I have always loved Neil Gaiman and have read Anansi Boys more than once. However, listening to Lenny Henry tell it brought so many new aspects alive for me. It was a truly delightful experience.
