    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.

    Any additional comments?

    I had listened to the first two books read by Michael Kramer, I'm not sure if I was just used to his voices but I found his performance more effective. I would sometimes get confused in this book since the different characters sounded the same to me, so in heavy dialog scenes I sometimes got confused who was talking. Still a great listen and a fantastic story line.

    At once wildly original and stuffed with irresistible nostalgia, Ready Player One is a spectacularly genre-busting, ambitious, and charming debut—part quest novel, part love story, and part virtual space opera set in a universe where spell-slinging mages battle giant Japanese robots, entire planets are inspired by Blade Runner, and flying DeLoreans achieve light speed.

    Julie W. Capell says: "I’m sorry I waited so long to read this book."

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

    This book is so much fun. The plot is great, characters are well developed and there is a heavy dose of humor without being cheesy.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Ready Player One?

    I loved that Wil Wheaton read this, for some reason I didn't notice when I bought it and when his voice came on I was pleasantly surprised! At times I did feel I was listening to a table top episode, but he has great inflection and speed.
