    Would you consider the audio edition of The Boy from Reactor 4 to be better than the print version?

    This story starts to take you down one path, then jumps to another, then another.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    It kept me entertained. It was more edge of seat toward the end of the book as the two main characters are escaping Russia.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I think my favorite scene was the last one in the story with the boy examining the locket.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No extreme reactions.

    On a damp October night, beautiful young Ashley Cordova is found dead in an abandoned warehouse in lower Manhattan. Though her death is ruled a suicide, veteran investigative journalist Scott McGrath suspects otherwise. As he probes the strange circumstances surrounding Ashley’s life and death, McGrath comes face-to-face with the legacy of her father: the legendary, reclusive, cult-horror-film director Stanislas Cordova - a man who hasn’t been seen in public for more than thirty years.

    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, I would recommend this book. The book is an intelligent witty thriller. Why did Ashley Cordova commit suicide? What secrets does her family hold? What is the truth behind her father's notorious films? With humor and horror, Marisha Pessi lets her tale unfold. The books main characters, an unlikely trio allied to find the truth of Ashley's suicide, traverse a dark landscape littered with witchcraft, dangerous films, curses, cancers, and secrets.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Nora, the coat check girl and would be actress, gives the story its heart.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    My favorite scene is when our chief detective and investigative reporter makes a journey through Cordova's films via the warehouse and green house on the palatial estate of the filmmaker. It's a nightmare journey. Did it really happen? Draw your own conclusions.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Hopper's revelations about a drowning at a camp for troubled youth.
