    Fed up with her wild behavior, 16-year-old Lex’s parents ship her off to upstate New York to live with her Uncle Mort for the summer, hoping that a few months of dirty farm work will whip her back into shape. But Uncle Mort’s true occupation is much dirtier than shoveling manure. He’s a Grim Reaper. And he’s going to teach Lex the family business. She quickly assimilates into the peculiar world of Croak, a town populated by reapers who deliver souls from this life to the next.

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

    I read this book first and then decided to listen to it. I love the story, The main character is a teen girl who up until lately has been a model student and daughter. no spoilers here, but suffice it to say there is a reason she went weird, and it makes for an interesting story!

    Downside: While the reader definitely has the teenage voice down she kind of distracted me from the story.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Lex's partner, he really brought out the best in her.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    Like I said, it was distracting.


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

    The end, I'm not giving any spoilers!

    C.S. Lewis’s acclaimed and universally loved novels spring to life in these spellbinding full-cast BBC dramatisations. Anyone who’s visited Narnia wants to go back again, and these radio dramas make for a hugely entertaining first-time or return journey, with a cast including Bernard Cribbins, Maurice Denham, Richard Griffiths, Martin Jarvis, Sylvester McCoy, John Sessions, Fiona Shaw and Timothy Spall.

    I wish it had been clearer when I bought this that the books were abridged, but still good! Also, I'm not a fan of the newer order, I prefer the original non chronological order they were originally written in.
