Stephen Irwin's novel, The Dead Path, is a striking departure from the usual, enjoyable but somewhat dog-eared, horror fare. Quite original, with elements of mystery, conspiracy and terror, Irwin's nimble prose brings a bright, almost historical, clarity to the Horror genre, with a fresh, complex voice and a driven, frightening plot.
I usually only listen during the long Bay Area commute, but this story had me yanking the iPod out of my vehicle and toting it up to my cubby, because I "couldn't put this book down."
My download sounded just dandy. Davina Porter reads well, and her charming accent lends a delightful touch to this rendition of "The Red and the Black."
Of all the books I read in college, this is the most memorable. Although many of the reviews I read here are unflattering, do not be deceived. If you enjoy wit, intrigue, and have a taste for period pieces, you will not be disappointed.
