After The Beekeeper's Apprentice I was hooked and wanted more. Just be advised that there are other books in between Beekeeper and Justice Hall, and some important things happen that you may wish you'd found out in the "correct" order. The reader does a great job of capturing the different personalities - so good in fact that I went right to Locked Rooms after finishing JH. What great characters Ms. King has both created and made to live on. I think these books would make such fun movies (Liam Neson as Holmes and Kiera Knightly as Russell - that's who my mind conjures up). Enjoy!
Although this book creeped me out in the beginning, the characters were so well developed and so believable that after I got over the yuck factor I was hooked.
I listen more to crime drama and thrillers, not so much to horror, but I am now looking at other Joe Hill books to listen to.
I was captivated by Kate Mulgrew’s narration. I have been listening to audiobooks for at least 20 years and I can comfortably say that this performance is among the best I have EVER heard. Unfortunately, she doesn't have a vast library of narrated books yet, I hope that changes as I would consider almost any book just for her narration.
I had to stop listening for a few days when I was alone in my house. After that, I couldn't put it down!
I was aware throughout the book of the quality of writing, and that made it even more enjoyable. Not sure how I will feel about Christmas this year, Charlie Manx will surly enter my mind....
This book kept me both listening and wondering why I was still listening. The story was just intriguing enough that I stuck with it, but still found myself saying "oh please, really?, c'mon". I agree with others, WAY too many other good books out there to spend time (and money) on this one.
I love the subject and I've seen the author speak and was impressed, but this book reads much more like a textbook than a story. Not bad, as long as you are anticipating this style - I was expecting something more along the lines of John Adams (which I loved). There were WAY too many "salient" points.
