The Loveliest Dead | [Ray Garton]

The Loveliest Dead

Horror master Garton delivers his usual ironic and macabre touches as the dead, who are, in fact, pretty ugly, make life a hell for the living. Following a sequence of increasingly dire personal tragedies, culminating in the unexplained death of their four-year-old son, Josh, Jenna and David Kella plan to make a new start of their lives on the old family homestead they've inherited just outside Eureka, Calif., with their surviving son, Miles. What they discover, though, is a nightmare.

    "I feel bad, but here's the scoop."
    What would have made The Loveliest Dead better?

    A different narrator.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Ray Garton again?

    Sure! I'd give him another try. Problem is, I'm not even sure if The Lovliest Dead is a good book or not. I made it through approx. 20 minutes before I had to quit. The narrator was the worst I've ever heard. And check out my history; I'm not new to audiobooks.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Brian Eslick?

    He seems to be trying out a weird parody of what people think William Shatner sounds like: long pauses in the middle of sentances, odd pronounciations, etc. WS is actually a great narrator, so I say go with the real thing.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    I have no idea.


    Any additional comments?

    I'm dissapointed.
