Publisher's Summary

Meet the Carnacki Institute’s operatives. JC Chance: the team leader, brave, charming, and almost unbearably arrogant. Melody Chambers: the science geek who keeps the antisupernatural equipment running. And Happy Jack Palmer: the terminally gloomy telepath. Their mission: Do Something about Ghosts. Lay them to rest, send them packing, or just kick their nasty ectoplasmic arses….

The Ghost Finders are investigating a haunting at the long-abandoned Haybarn Theater, which is being renovated. But work has been thrown off-schedule by the some peculiar and unnatural activities. And after the potentially world-altering recent events of their previous assignment, the team thinks that a haunted theater (aren't they all?) will be a walk in the park.

    Story
    "Classic Simon"
    Where does Ghost of a Dream rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I have listened to all of SRG's works and I think this is his best. It's his classic formula of an opening minidrama followed by a great mystery.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The characters are more flushed out and human, while the classic horror is amped up several notches. You can see it unplay like a movie in your mind. He also ties it into many of his other series with character references.


    What does Toby Leonard Moore bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He shifts wonderfully and fluidly between all of the accents of the UK. He is a pleasure to listen to.


    If you could take any character from Ghost of a Dream out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Alester. He plays no less that 4 characters in the book and would be a dinner party in and of himself.


    Any additional comments?

    Brain candy taken to a new fantasy level.

    Story
    "very disappointing to a Simon R Green fan"
    What disappointed you about Ghost of a Dream?

    It was the only time I have ever applied the word "boring" to one of Green's books. The dialog was repetetive, the story seemed rather dull compared to some of his other works, and I just couldn't get into it. The narrator was good, I enjoy the accents of the characters... but in this book that was about the only thing I enjoyed. I quickly tired of the heavy footsteps with nobody there and the people who turned out to be ghosts much to the surprise of the ghostfinder team (I wasn't a bit surprised).


    What could Simon R. Green have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    I don't know what would have improved the book for me... It just wasn't to my taste. I think I'll stick to other series by this author, as this is the second book of this series that has let me down in my expectations of his works. I tried this one as a "second chance" for the series... back to Eddie Drood and the infamous wild witch of the forest for me!

    "Pass. I'm a fan of Simon but this was dull."

    I have no idea what this was about. I tried to restart it but it was so boring my mind wandered.
