Shut Your Eyes Tight is certainly worth a listen. The narration was unobtrusive and the plot was intriguing.
I was dissapointed with the shear number of loose ends left at the end of this book. The set-up and climax of the novel were awesome but the story ends abruptly with virtualy no resolution to many of the most interesting plot lines.That being said it was an enjoyable experience, one that I recommend to all readers of the first book in the David Gurney series.
It is a massive chronicaling of the town of Dairy, Maine through the eyes of a group of children. In my opinion, the plot takes a back seat to the charater and world development. This is totally acceptable since listening to the narrator Steven Weber is a real treat.
The narrator was simply incredible. Weber adds a whole new level to the listening experience. His voice for "it" is just pitch-perfect disturbing. Every character line is so fluid and believable as he adds sighs, laughter, and voice inflection. Simply a joy to listen to.
Yes; unique setting - post-Katrina New Orleans and interesting characters.
Good accent work 90% of the time; french accent is abit annoying.
