    • By Mike Carey

    Old ghosts of different kinds come back to haunt Felix, in the fourth gripping Felix Castor novel. Names and faces he thought he'd left behind in Liverpool resurface in London, bringing Castor far more trouble than he'd anticipated. Childhood memories, family traumas, sins old and new, and a council estate that was meant to be a modern utopia until it turned into something like hell...these are just some of the sticks life uses to beat Felix Castor with as things go from bad to worse for London's favourite freelance exorcist.

    Would you try another book from Mike Carey and/or Damian Lynch?

    no, I enjoyed the first 3 books immensley, Michael Kramer brought Felix Castor and all the other characters to life so well. Damien Lynch,in my opinion does not measure up to the high standard I was accustomed to. While I still enjoy the series I will go back to reading them and skip the audio books. If Michael Kramer comes back so will I.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    As always, the story was well constructed, Mike Carey is one of my favorite contemporary writers.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Michael Kramer would have made this a much more enjoyable experience. At times Lynch is hard to understand and delivers a very nonchelant reading.


    Did Thicker Than Water inspire you to do anything?

    Go back to paper copy.


    Any additional comments?

    Bring back Mr. Kramer please.

    Ralph Roberts has an incurable case of insomnia, but lack of sleep is the least of his worries. Each night he stays awake, Ralph witnesses more of the odd activity taking place in Derry after dark than he wants to know. The nice young chemist up the street beats his wife and has delusions about beings he calls "The Centurions".

    Would you try another book from Stephen King and/or Eli Wallach?

    Yes I would, great performance and perfect fit for the main character of the novel.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Insomnia?

    The transition from worrying about insanity to recognizing his new talent and its potential;.


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

    He gives us the narrative to the story and provides a better sense of character that I would not have had by reading.


    Was Insomnia worth the listening time?

    Yes it was but the music while a novel approach was overwhelming at times.
