Lots of fun! Maybe not Jennifer Cruise's best, but a good story anyway. The premise was a bit thin, but Link and Daisy are great characters. Lots of great details, funny, warm and sweet.
This was a bit Dresden Files like. It was a perfectly entertaining for listening to on a long road trip. I didn't expect much from it when I downloaded it right before I left on a car trip, but it exceeded my expectations. I may end up buying the next one. The narration was perfectly OK.
I would try another book by this author but have made a note never to buy another book narrated by Saskia Maarleveid. Her habit of drawing out the ends of so many words was distracting and annoying. The narration made it very hard to follow the story.
I enjoy Karen Armstrong's work and have read several of her books in print form. This however has been a tough slog. I think it's the narration. The author reads the book, and I can't pinpoint what it is that I don't enjoy but I find myself reaching for the pause button soon after I start to listen.
The narrators did a fine job of bringing these Lovecraft tales to life. I've been a fan of Lovecraft for years but this was my first experience with these stories in audio version. I enjoyed them and it inspired me to revisit other Lovecraft stories both in print and audio.
